BWW Feature: The Mets are in the World Series, Celebrate with Sports Showtunes!
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 25, 2015

The fall is a special time for Broadway fans, with new plays and musicals opening left and right. However, it is also a special time of year for sports fans, with the baseball playoffs in full swing, college and pro football seasons well underway, and the hockey and basketball schedules kicking off. Inspired by the fact that the New York Mets have advanced to the World Series to take on the Kansas City Royals, Jeff Walker and I decided to take a look at some of the places where sports and Broadway mix. After I graduated from The Ohio State University (college football's defending champion and current No. 1 team, by the way), my first few jobs were in covering and coaching college and professional sports.
