From 5:00 until 10:00 P.M. a misty rain fell across the ball diamonds in Woodstock but that did not prevent the Falcons from hosting the teams from Sherando. Tommy Keeler had the softball duties and Dennis Atwood covered the baseball game. Check out both gamers at

Central’s Short Stop and Left Fielder awaiting the next pitch
Dennis was there taking pics for the NVD and was telling me about his recent adventure to the Dominican Republic. The cap is from one of the ball teams in the DR and we think it is the one that Manny played for.
Runners on the corners and fielders on their toes as the pitch comes.

I first noticed something was wrong in the Ram family yeaterday when I read Katie Baker’s notes on Facebook. I knew something was wrong in the extended Strasburg family but I didn’t know what until today.
I will add the link here to the story that Chuck McGill wrote for todays NVD (
