The young girl in the movie brought the heat from the mound!!
Yes. But her story was a cautionary tale of how curveball and puberty can wreck a promising career.

Anyone know where our guys are playing summer ball?
Whoever is left and returning.
Jake Beaty, Caleb Cross, Adam Quintero & Graham Smiley are all playing for the Boone Bigfoots this summer.

Over 4,000 kids in the portal, and I don't think we have a single one in it.

Here's you one big name, even though he couldn't play another year at App. https://x.com/xavier_moronta/status/180 ... A4AIg&s=19

Tolley may be a once in a decade type impact player for us. Nice to see the A A recognition.

BTW, if any of you desperados plan to be in the High Country this summer, try and attend a Boone Bigfoots game. Tickets/refreshments are inexpensive and it’s a lot of fun. You can get your tickets online https://www.bigfootsbaseball.com/tickets
or buy them at the gate.

Great outing whether it’s you and the fam, you and the boys, you and your SO, the squad from work, or whoever.

Also seems like a good contingent of Mountaineers on the team! Summer baseball in Boone was an excellent idea. Further growing our brand as well.

3 walk-off wins and a HR robbing catch in the ninth to preserve a win...the first 4 games of the CWS have been awesome.

Well done Virginia coach..
On Virgina coach Brian O'Connor pulling Forbes aside to offer words of encourage after the Cavaliers were eliminated earlier on Sunday:

FORBES: "I think it says more about him, in particular. Brian is what coaching's about. He cares about his players. He's been a tremendous friend to me. He's been a head coach a long time. I haven't been a head coach a long time, but he's always treated me, like, basically I was a head coach. It didn't matter to him. It's just who he is. And we're pulling for each other except when we play each other. Obviously he wants us to do well because we're good friends. But he also respects the way we play. And he knows we respect the way they play."

Are you sure he was not "reposting" someone else?. Makes no sense to go to another g5

Haven’t seen this at all. Hope it isn’t true. Does anyone have idea on his injury prognosis?

My bad!!! Never used X or Twitter. It was a re-post of another player. I was looking to see if Jackson was playing summer ball anywhere and his name and X post came up in the search. So Sorry!! Go Apps!
