They are changing the game and forging a new path forward—for themselves, for their league, and for the next generation of little girls with big soccer dreams.

Our first season, Crushed, presented a fresh take on legacy the home run race of ’98 and baseball’s steroid era.

Season 2, the award-winning series False Idol, examined the murder of Reeva Steenkamp and the myths surrounding her killer, Oscar Pistorius.

Season 3, Roughhousing, took listeners inside America’s locker rooms to explore hazing in high school sports today — why we do it, what it says about us, and whether change is possible.

When the Yankees lost the ALCS to the Astros this week, Hall of Famer Pedro Martínez turned an old insult back on the Yankees and their fans.

"I have one question for all of New York: New York, who’s your daddy now?" he said.

The former Red Sox ace was calling back to the 2004 ALCS when Yankees fans mercilessly chanted that phrase at him. This week, we share an exclusive interview from In the Moment with David Greene. Martínez talks to Greene about that historic season and how he was able to draw fuel from the Yankees taunts.

“Little did they know that chanting ‘Pedro, Pedro’ worked to my advantage,” he said.

Martínez also reveals how he would pitch against current sluggers like Aaron Judge, and insists that his era of pitching was the toughest ever.
