Retired MLB Pitcher Brad Ziegler and Naval Academy Head Baseball Coach Paul Kostacopoulos: American Valor Podcast
The American Valor Podcast team was recently honored to converse with retired MLB pitcher Mr. Brad Ziegler and the head baseball coach of the United States Naval Academy baseball program Mr. Paul Kostacopoulos. Brad and Paul spoke about their careers in baseball, including how they got started in the game, what they have experienced and learned throughout their journeys and what led them to be involved with the military. Mr. Ziegler created Pastime for Patriots to honor service men and women; he was the MLB Bob Feller Act of Valor Award recipient in 2016. Mr. Kostacopoulos is the second-winningest head coach in Naval Academy baseball history. The Navy baseball program has earned five-straight Patriot League regular season titles under his guidance. Thank you to Mr. Ziegler and Mr. Kostacopoulos for your support! We release new podcasts every other Monday. Stay tuned for our conversation with Hall of Famer and 2018 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award recipient Mr. Johnny Bench.
