A day after throwing six perfect innings in what proved to be a Scraton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders win, 23-year-old starting pitcher Mike King makes his debut on Riding The Rails.

King discusses throwing six perfect innings on Wednesday (0:52), pitching to Gary Sanchez (4:12), making his way from High-A to Triple-A this season (7:50), how he became a New York Yankees fan and getting traded to the team he rooted for growing up (12:33), his unique delivery (15:22), why he loves the shift (17:56), being a New England Patriots fan (20:15), spending his offseason in Rhode Island (22:55) and much, much more. The starting pitcher closes down the show by answering a set of rapid fire questions (24:53).

This podcast was recorded on Thursday, during the RailRiders last homestand of the regular season.
