Nick Swisher on life in the Minors at age 35 and where LeBron would play on the diamond

Nick Swisher may no longer reign over the empire of Brohio, but he still lives large. It's just what he does: Whether aboard a kayak or appearing at his own introductory press conference, the man cannot stop having a good time.

And, now that he's plying his trade with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders -- Yankees Triple-A affiliate and masters of the Greg Bird bobblehead -- who better to serve as the inaugural interview of the 2016 Cut4 Minor Minor League Road Trip

For those of you just joining us, the Road Trip is a month-long, cross-country expedition led by Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman of Cespedes Family Barbecue, covering at least 15 Minor League games and dedicated to seeing as many of baseball's top prospects as humanly possible. Thursday marked the beginning of the grand voyage, and to kick things off, we caught up with Swisher for a Facebook Live interview before the RailRiders' game against the Toldeo Mud Hens -- discussing everything from life in the Minors as a 35-year-old veteran to putting LeBron James in center field. Check it out below:
