Cubs Weekly Podcast: Cubs’ prospect Ed Howard joins to discuss finding success, support system in Chicago
On the latest edition of the Cubs Weekly Podcast, Elise Menaker and Lance Brozdowski debut an exclusive interview with Ed Howard in Class A Myrtle Beach. They also reflect on a conversation Lance had with Howard’s Mt. Carmel High School baseball coach, Brian Hurry, and reveal a special surprise Marquee put together for Howard’s interview.
But before those sit-downs, Menaker and Brozdowski chat about Owen Caissie, Christian Franklin, DJ Herz and Jordan Nwogu. They discuss Caissie’s Canadian high school roots and his cerebral approach to his swing and Franklin’s whirlwind last few months after being drafted in the 4th round by the Cubs this July. They also dig into Herz’s heart-warming hometown start, his recent promotion to South Bend and Nwogu’s relationship with Howard.
Then, Coach Hurry’s details what stands out about Howard’s on and off-field talents and how big of an impact he’s had on Mt. Carmel’s baseball program. And Ed Howard chats about his acclimation to Class A from high school, how much the Cubs mean to the city of Chicago and the close circle of support he relies on for motivation.
