The peak of the Masaanutten Mountain Range is a pretty cool back drop for the football field. Chris (L) and Josh on the pre-game show. Week 3 of covering the Waynesboro Little Giants took Chris Graham and myself to the campus of Spotswood High School. Josh was covering the game for the News Virginian and he joined us on both the pre-game show and our half time show. ____________________________________ We witnessed the first lead of the season for the Little Giants when the team scored a touchdown late in the first quarter to take a 7-6 advantage. While the lead didn't hold up it was still a positive note on the night. __________________________________ Waynesboro fell to 0-3 on the season and will return to action Friday night when they travel to Staunton for a Southern Valley District co

Mr. John Leonard of the ATVL - One Class Act !

One of the highlights of my summer was the opportunity to have John Leonard and his family be involved with our baseball team down in Waynesboro . John was there when we started the project and while he won't be returning for year two he will always be a big part of our organization/family. The amount of Class that John displays was ever so apparent in his posting on his site last month where he explained his reasons for not returning. The story below was written by a man that I feel fortunate to call a Friend. August 21, 2009 Some News My self-imposed hiatus is over, so let's get to the off season , shall we?

News from the old Home Town - Ichiro makes it 9 Straight!

SEATTLE - Anyone out there old enough to remember Wee Willie Keeler ? Safe money says that there is no one alive today that was around when Keeler ran his record of 200 hit seasons to eight straight back in 1901. _________________________________________________________ But we are all talking about Keeler this week because Ichiro Suzuki broke the 108 year old mark my making it nine for nine when it comes to seasons with 200 hits. Ichiro made it to town one year before we left the Great Northwest and he proved to Major League Baseball that an everyday player from Japan can make it in the bigs . Even as our team has struggled over the years it was still fun to check the box score to see how many hits Ichiro picked up that night. _________________________________________________________ 2,000 hits plus the 1,000+ hits from Japan makes fans wonder just how high can the total number of hits run before Ichiro hangs up his magical bat?
