Nicholas Castellanos has become a big part of the Detroit Tigers this season.  He is having a great season, he's become a team leader and he is now co-hosting a podcast.

According to the story from MLB dot com,  the Tigers outfielder along with Tigers closer, Shane Greene are hosting a new podcast called, 619.

The name of the podcast is the two players numbers, 61 and 9.  The whole idea for the podcast was suggested to the pair during spring training by the Tigers Media Relations.

The two players are the last two guys on the team that I thought would do something like this but i will give them a chance.   It will be interesting to get a players perspective on the Tigers organization and Major League Baseball.

Their first episode is up now.   I'll be curious to see how many of their team mates and possibly other pro players that will end up on the podcast.

The 619 podcast has a twitter account, @sixoneninepod  where fans can interact and give the pair suggestions and ideas.

If you want to check out the first 619 podcast you can listen to it here.
