Show 84, August 16, 2014: Halo Reliever Jason Grilli

Jason GrilliThe Halos have an ace relief pitcher in Jason Grilli, newly arrived in a trade deal with The Pittsburgh Pirates. In Pittsburgh he’s known for The Closer, a 3-decker grilled cheese sandwich using 9 different premium cheeses. Jason is with us live on the road from Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas to talk about it.

Early in his professional career Jason earned the appropriate nickname, “Grilled Cheese.” This is explained in his newly published book, Just My Game with a foreword by Clint Hurdle.

Grilli, and partners, are also the Pittsburgh franchisees for the rapidly growing Tom+Chee. This is a grilled cheese and tomato soup shop for the kid at heart. The restaurants mix classic comfort food with fresh ingredients, healthy alternatives, and a flare for the unexpected. In addition to the regular menu there are lots of daily specials.
