Godspeed to young Clay Kelly as he heads back to DBU

It's 11:51 p.m. and I should be at work already but I wanted to add one note. Our baseball son for the summer received some troubling news this week (school-related) and he had to leave today driving back to Dallas Baptist University. Summer classes start Monday morning and he had a class he has to take to stay on track for his degree this year. I just spoke with him and he has made it as far as Chattanooga , TN (500 miles down, 794 to go). Only had Clay at the house for 1 month exactly but hated to see him go and I will be worried about him until he reaches DBU - What a classy young man and his parents- Pat & Laura- should be very, very proud! Travel safe young man...

1 note from the Press Box @ ATV-60- TV 3 Story

A special Thank You to Mr. Damon Dillman for airing the interview he put together for TV-3. It was great to have it air twice and we are SO THANKFUL for the help but we need to make one note. At the end of the piece Damon mentioned there was no Pot of Gold at the end of the ATV-60 rainbow when in fact there is. Each baseball fan that completes the loop will receive the following: 1. Being recognized back at their home park at a future home game. 2. Having the Honor of throwing out the first pitch at a home game. 3. A LOGO Wind Breaker with their teams logo on 1 side and the ATV-60 on the other 4. A minimum of three outlets for pictures and the telling of their story 5.They are entered into a drawing for a 2009 Season Pass that gets them into every park in the VBL on any given night. 6. My UN-Conditional Love !

A General Mid-season Review by GeneralsSignGuyMike

A General Mid-season Review Written by GeneralsSignGuyMike (Michael Kerr) It is now July 4th and its the 1st day this summer that not 1 team is playing so I decided to make a midseason report from what I have seen so far, this is just my opinion. There is one more day before the All-Star Game in Covington and I wanted to wish everyone on both teams good luck, each and everyone of you deserve it and great job all have done in the 1 month of Valley League Baseball. I am going to compare the teams from last year to this year now with their records as of July 4th and say in my view he is a favorite along with my Generals and dark-horse sleeper picks. My midseason MVP's so far are: a tie between Brandon Sizemore and Adam Liberatore, Liberatore is by far the most improved player. Look at the numbers from last year's stats to this year and you will see. Other pitchers who have done well is also on the Generals is Jared Dobbs, Andy Altemus and Daniel Wiltz. I have yet to see Lance Baxt
