The Surprising Things You Learn in a Car Ride With Clint Hurdle

The Bucs' manager shared his philosophy on arguments with umpires –– and a lot of other things –– during a short ride around the block with KDKA anchors Susan Koeppen and Ken Rice.

If you were in a car for a short ride around the block with Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle, what would you ask him?

In their fledgling social media series “Around the Block with Susan and Ken,” KDKA anchors Susan Koeppen and Ken Rice quizzed Hurdle on a variety of topics ranging from his favorite baseball movie to what not to say to a major league umpire. His answers provide Pirates fans with an amusing look at the manager’s off-the-field persona. A lot is packed into this short video. 

While Rice was behind the wheel, he says the idea for the series was all Koeppen’s.

“I think she took her inspiration from James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,’” said Rice.

H/T to this creative way of interviewing local celebrities. We hope there are more rides around the block ahead.
