Hey, the Vaqueros invited me to spring training, which actually ends before I get out of school so I won't be able to attend. Andrew Dunn said that I'm in their system and to contact them immediately after graduation so I can throw for them again. You mentioned your team, which team is that?

I'm still looking around at other possibilities so any information you can give me is greatly appreciated.

Season starts the 6th, keep you posted.

Hey man, you got anymore info on CBL or any other leagues/tryouts? I'm home in Houston for my winter break. I plan on attending the Houston tryout sponsered by the Vaqueros.

Keep in touch,

What does A level and barnstorming mean? What would it be like? What are salaries? I've heard that the league is experiencing financial trouble, is that true? Sorry for all the questions, I'm just interested.

Thanks for the heads up on the league. I was wondering if you could try to give me a non-biased outlook on the league (hard because i know you're involved). How does the league compare with say the Frontier League? How do I go about getting on a team after graduation?

So what's the opp for 2010?

Andy won't make a living from GSB. Go to the new site for more info. We have lots of contacts in the Indy's and Foreign Ball. We do procurement for many teams and we network with many affiliated scouts. You should contact my supe, James Gamble, if you want to make it a full time position. He can be reached at

Hey Andy,

You can easily invite your leaguemates to join the groups you created by going to each group page and clicking the link to invite more to join your group. You can then paste the email addresses from your league rosters and click send. When they create their profile through the email that is generated, they'll automatically be part of the group you invited them to.

I use my league and team pages to post sponsors, notices, photos, etc.

Let me know if you have any questions,
