Take Advantage Men....

I am so excited to return to the Legion World Series, where twenty-six years ago I participated as a player for the Massachusetts State Champion Post 70 from Norwood, Mass. I was the Captain on that team, so it was extra special for me 'cause it meant that I was too carry the colors of the Massachusetts flag into both the Banquet and the Opening Ceremonies @ Stevens Point, WI....

To some they might say "what's the big deal" This to me, other than marrying my beautiful Wife Jackie, and having two healthy kids Lilah & Camden, was something I will never forget, for that the honor was the biggest honor I have achieved in my life.

I want people to know this because you never know what your moment in life is gonna be, and to the young ballplayers that will be crossing those white lines while taking the field in Shelby NC this summer, it just might be their time, so please don't waste it, 'cause it might never come around again....
These young men are the best of the best in our beautiful Country, and as young men they may not realize this until it's all gone, so take advantage Men!!!! Take Full Advantage !!!!!

We have booked all of our “itinerary”, except we fell short of obtaining World Series Banquet Tickets, which by now are “Sold Out”..... We are traveling from Norwood,Ma and feel we would be shorted if we couldn’t attend. We by know means are looking for a hand out here, just looking to fulfill that feeling of yesteryear....

In closing, if there is anything that can be done, it would be so much appreciated....
