Adam Duvall’s Fight Against Diabetes

  • Red Sox outfielder Adam Duvall has played his entire baseball career with a type-1 diabetes diagnosis.
  • Now he is raising awareness on the issue.
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Early in his baseball career, Adam Duvall was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes. In the 11 years since his diagnosis, Duvall made his way into the majors, won a World Series with the Atlanta Braves in 2021, and now plays for the Boston Red Sox. Duvall joins the show to talk about his journey through MLB with type-1 diabetes — and the work he is doing now to help those diagnosed with the disease.

We also hear from Senior Writer Michael McCarthy on the time-honored — and somewhat infamous — Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. McCarthy joins newsletter co-author Eric Fisher to take a deep dive into the legendary speed-eating event.
