Short Hops with Kevin Hooper is a weekly show that will air each Monday during the American Association League season. This gives fans the opportunity to ask questions of the Wichita Wingnuts Skipper and hear his insights into the Wingnuts, baseball, sports, and even life in general.

Fans can ask the Wingnuts Skipper questions by sending an email to AskKevin@MinorLeagueSportsReport.com by Friday at midnight of that week. Those questions are submitted to Kevin on Saturday and answered during the taping of our program on Monday. If you miss the Friday deadline, we will simply include your questions in next week’s show.

Not all questions that are submitted will be discussed. While Kevin is open to answering most questions, those that are deemed inappropriate will be discarded.
