Monday night proved to be one with story lines at every turn. There will be five posts for the evening and we will get them cranked out in between working the papers.
1. The tour stop took us to Warrenton for a Fauquier Gators home game and were welcomed by
a family with an incredible story and I look forward to sharing it with you.
2. Rebecca took a Valley road trip as Luray skipper Mike Bocock was nice enough to allow her to join the Wranglers on the team bus. Luray was the opponent for the Gators and we wanted to try and catch a glimpse of life on the road for a Valley Leaguer.
3. The big night of presenting the finished product of our book- A season of a Lifetime- to the school and the volleyball team at Strasburg High School.
4. Setting the table for all of the Valley high school Elite Eight match-ups that will take place Tuesday night. Some of the big games include Lancaster @ Luray, Strasburg @ Essex as well as Waynesboro @ Abbington. The Bulldog game will start at 6:00 p.m. and has bumped the Woodstock @ Luray Wranglers match-up back to Monday June 9Th at 7:30 p.m.
5. I wasn't the only one with a unique double header last night. New Market GM and friend of the promotion Bruce Alger logged a few miles last night to be everywhere he needed to be.
Mike has already checked in with an update of the action last night and I will get back to you with all 5 of these stories (with a little help from Rebecca) as soon as we can...
Adrian Gonzalez (3-4 4 rbi's) capped off a huge night for the Padres with a 3-run homer in the ninth but SD came up one run short 7-6.
