The Tri-City ValleyCats, the Albany Empire and former RPI hockey player and Union assistant coach Ben Barr are the topics on the latest 'The Parting Schotts Podcast.'

On the latest edition of “The Parting Schotts Podcast,” I talk with Tri-City ValleyCats manager Pete Incaviglia as the team prepares to open its first season in the Frontier League on Thursday.

“Things have gone better than expected, player-wise,” Incaviglia said during his appearance on the show. “I feel like we’ve got a team that will compete. It’ll be good to see them play some real games against real opponents in our league.”

I also talk to ValleyCats general manager Matt Callahan about how attendance will be as coronavirus restrictions are eased.

Albany Empire quarterback Tommy Grady comes on to talk about the team as the Empire opens its National Arena League season Saturday.

“Obviously,” Grady said, “we’re all happy that the season is about to start and get on its way.”

New Maine men’s hockey coach Ben Barr, who played at RPI and was an assistant coach at Union, also joins the show to discuss his new job.
