The ESPN Classic game featuring the Birmingham Black Barons taking place on Sunday afternoon that I’ve previously mentioned received some great press in two of our local publications today: The Birmingham News and Birmingham Weekly. I’m hoping there’s a great turnout. It definitely provides an opportunity to take a good look at and honor some history, complete with individuals that hover larger than life over the game and our culture. Few things embody the ability to slow down and enjoy life than being at a ballpark. You don’t even necessarily have to be watching the game. It’s definitely something to get you in the mood for the season to begin, especially with players beginning to report for spring training in Arizona and Florida.
Civic organizations round up, Part 1
I have to put on my Jaycees board member hat for a moment: The Birmingham Jaycees are having a bowling night at Lightning Strikes Lanes in Trussville this evening beginning at 6 p.m. You can always imagine the worst part of your week sitting at the end of the lane to motivate some high scoring this evening. If you have a chance, please come on out. Keep a lookout for a blog site for the chapter in the coming weeks.
Please take a moment to view my personal webpage for the upcoming American Cancer Society Relay for Life event in Leeds/Moody on May 19. I plan to take part in that event as a member of the Birmingham Jaycees team. The page has links to addition information and provides opportunities to donate online. I encourage you to at least visit to learn more about this incredible project.
More later. Cheers.
