Thanks for the warm welcome Bill - I am still feeling my way in cyberspace - my main contribution so far is a weekly to bi-weekly blog at    Will be back to you soon. Precious time of year with baseball the main news in sports but football training camps lurk. Whoever said "baseball is what this country used to be, football is what it has become" certainly said a mouthful.  YIBF (Yours In Baseball Forever), Lee

Thanks for the invite. I was wondering if you had any tips on promoting a tournament I'm hosting here in Pittsburgh. I'd like to bring in outside teams for it July 4th weekend!
