The Human Side of Sports
Looking for a new sports podcast? You’ll come to find that we aren’t just a normal “Blue Jays Talk Show”, or a typical Toronto sports podcast either. Instead, Outta the Park presents the human side of sports! Co-hosted and produced by music teacher, drummer, and producer Matt McFarland, Outta the Park(or OTP for short) is hosted by the former Sportsnet reporter Barry Davis, who spent years covering the Blue Jays, Raptors, and Leafs, amongst other sports. As opposed to other Toronto sports podcasts, which dive into the advanced statistic and analytic element of the game, Outta the Park takes you into the lives of professional athletes and gives you, the listener, the chance to know more about your favourite players.

Every week Outta the Park features a guest from the world of sports! From current Toronto Blue Jays and NHL players, up and coming young prospects, past players, coaches, front office personnel, broadcasters, family members; the list goes on and on. Barry and Matt go in depth with their guests, more than the typical Toronto sports podcast allowing listeners to learn about new elements of the game that they otherwise would never be exposed to. Plus join our OTP Membership Program to ask our guests YOUR QUESTIONS. You’d be hardpressed to find any sports podcasts in Toronto who deliver such in-depth conversations that allow you to lead the interview.

The First Pitch
Most shows are either a Toronto Blue Jays Podcast or a Toronto Maple Leafs podcast. But Outta the Park is a hybrid show; an amazing Toronto sports podcast, often touching upon on all the major Toronto teams, including the Blue Jays, Raptors and Leafs. This doesn’t stop the boys from delving into topics across the MLB, NHL, NBA, NFL and CFL. Instead of focusing on one particular element, the hosts share a balanced perspective, from the statistics to crazy hot-takes. Debates often ensue, resulting in an always engaging and entertaining segment.
