Friday Night w/ Mike Schikman (WSVA-550 AM)

I am looking forward to the visit with Mike down at the radio station in Harrisonburg tonight. The coolest part of the promotion up until now has been getting to spend some time with the likes of Mike Barber, Chris Graham and speaking to groups like the Shenandoah Valley Grandstand Managers Club of New Market.

After tonight I will be able to add one of the most loved and respected voices of our valley in Mike Schikman. I need to thank Teresa (Mrs.Turk) for the effort- I hope she didn't twist Mike's
arm to hard for this opportunity. I guess if Mike is wearing a sling tonight I will know the answer to that question!

Everybody is so, so busy these days and for Mike to take the time to visit with both John Leonard (All Things Valley League) and myself is a blessing. We are just 8 days way from the first pitch of another great Valley League Baseball season and sitting down with Mike should give us one more chance to spread the word about the best kept secret in baseball.

The broadcast tonight will be from 6:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Mike's station WSVA!

While I am on the subject of thanking Teresa- the note you sent yesterday could not have come at a better time! My daughter Rebecca and I had just finished a 6+ hour loop to drop material off in Fauquier, Haymarket,Winchester and Front Royal. If there is a story left to tell by me it would be called: The Women behind the Valley League. A feature story or a short book could be filled with the efforts of some of the women responsible for keeping the league where it need to be.

Also- thanks to the above mentioned teams for making the drop off process easier for us. I
understand it was a work day for each of you and we appreciate the efforts each of you made!

The radio show turned out to be a blast. Mike was very gracious to not only Mr.Leonard and myself but to my daughter Rebecca as well.Getting a call from Haymarket Joe added to the fun as did getting to swap stories with the host for 15 minutes after the show.
Mike did ask my daughter if she ever had a chance to speak at the dinner table.......
I hope it was as fun to listen to as it was to participate in...

I can tell ya how my schedule goes thou I will miss some 4 games in the first week. Here is the Generals SignGuy schedule:

Opening day vs Harrisonburg: June 1
at Covington: Fri. June 6th
at Winchester Tue. June 10th
at Harrisonburg Fri. June 13th
at Luray Tues. June 17th
at Fauquier Fri. June 20th
at New Market Sat. June 21st
at Haymarket Tue. June 24th
at Woodstock Fri. June 27th
at Front Royal Sat. June 28th
at Staunton Sun. July 27th

Note: This sounds bad but I am hoping for a rainout in Staunton or either June 5th, or July 16th so one of the games can be moved to a Monday so that I wouldn't have to wait to the end of July. So one fan will be doing the rain dance sorry fans.

But I can tell you Jerry don't be surprised if u have atleast several other Generals Superfans like Paul which we both will be making this trips and also Benji and Brian, Jay and Chrissy all does this.

Its going to be a great season I can't wait.
