Mike Adams (outfielder)

Robert Michael Adams (born July 24, 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a former backup outfielder in Major League Baseball who played from 1972 through 1978 for the Minnesota Twins (1972-1973), Chicago Cubs (1976-1977) and Oakland Athletics (1978). Adams batted and threw right-handed.

Coming from a baseball family, Adams is the son of second baseman Bobby Adams and nephew of first baseman Dick Adams.

The light-hitting Adams was a fine, strong-armed outfielder, but was never more than a part-time player serving as a defensive replacement late in the game. He reached the majors in 1972 with the Minnesota Twins, spending two years with them before moving to the Cubs and Athletics. His most productive season came in 1980 with Minnesota, when he posted career-highs in games played (55), hits (14), runs (21), home runs (3) and RBI (six).

In a five-season career, Adams was a .195 hitter (23-for-118) with three home runs and nine RBI in 100 games.

Planet Mikey

Planetmikey.jpg

Planet Mikey is a sports talk radio program on Boston's WEEI 850 kHz AM. The show was officially announced on December 15, 2005 and runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays. The host is Mike Adams, an experienced Boston sports talk show host. Adams is accompanied by flashboy John Ryder, and producers Jason Pothier (J-Pod) and Joe Zarbano (Joey the Fish).

There was an open spot on WEEI programming in the 7 p.m.-to-11 p.m.slot after the departure of Ted Sarandis. Adams had been filling in as the host for two months and had reportedly given WEEI until December 14 to make a decision regarding hiring him as a full-time replacement for Sarandis. Allegedly, programming director Jason Wolfe had not returned Adams' calls for a couple of days. Adams arrived early for his show on Wednesday, and Big Show host Glenn Ordway called Wolfe on the air with the goal of eliciting a decision on Adams future with the station. When Wolfe was finally put on the phone, he and Adams got into what sounded like a serious argument on the air that ended when Adams disconnected Wolfe. Until around 9:30 that night, Adams apparently locked himself in the studio not allowing anybody else inside except for food delivery people. Finally, Wolfe called in and gave Adams the job. WEEI reported that Wolfe received well over 1,000 emails from fans during the stunt, urging him to give Adams the job. The break-in was later revealed to be a hoax, as reported by a Boston Globe feature on Mike Adams. The station itself also admits it was a publicity stunt orchestrated by station management.Adams Choses a Topic for their 5 hour long friday shows.

Mike Adams was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and raised in Connecticut, Adams was a disc jockey on several stations in Hartford, Springfield, and New York City during the '70's and '80's. He hosted a show called "Mike Adams Sports World" on NECN from 1992-98 and won three Emmys. He has hosted shows for Fox 25 in Boston and Classic Sports Network, now known as ESPN Classic. He began at WEEI in 1993 as a part-timer in conjunction with television work and selling Fords at Stoneham Ford. His full time show replaces the "Ted Nation" program by Ted Sarandis, which commenced on December 14, 2005. The show is on from 6-11 PM. Adams is a fan of all Boston teams, and is very critical of Alex Rodriguez and Peyton Manning. He lives in the MetroWest area of Massachusetts with his wife, Christine, adult children Scott and Kelly, and 1 year old Andrew.

The show was formerly hosted by Ted Sarandis (Ted Nation)-1995-December 14, 2005 and Jeff Joyce (Flashboy)-December 14, 2005-2007.
