Bill:

Glad to meet you. I'm looking forward to exchanging in some interesting give & take.

I've been involved in coaching since 1971 at the JV & varsity high school levels. I have

also coached in Connie Mack & Stan Musial summer ball. I'm always ready to learn.

Hey Bill, how'd you get that picture of a guy in blue jersey hitting on the top headliner? It's a teammate of mine, he's wearing white and green nowadays though, much better looking... :p
