nice to know you ......Do you know Tony lamonica, he's scouts out AZ way. If you know any kids looking to get into college and play baseball send them my way. No rip-offs here. Or any MLB fringe kids, I may be able to help them out. PS I hope to check out your book...if you didn't read Heart of the Game your missing something good.

Hi Tim...thanks for the comment. That's good stuff. Are you still involved in the game out there in AZ? We have a new franchise location that is going to be opening later this year/early 2010 in the Tempe/Chandler, AZ area. Very excited to get Extra Innings rolling out there in AZ!
