Greetings from Lewis Gale Field @ Salem Memorial Ball Park

Welcome to the Class A Carolina League
Welcome to the Class A Carolina League

Back when Mr. Jim Critzer first approached me about getting involved with the Waynesboro Generals of the Valley League I mentioned my hopes would be to create an atmosphere that rivaled one of a Class A Minor League team. I have spent as much time in minor league parks as I have in MLB parks and there is a certain charm you find there.

         The diehard baseball fan will come to the park just to watch a baseball game but if you are going to get the non-fan or the middle-of-the-road fan you better give them a reason to load up the car and drive to the park. With a GREAT deal of help from a number of folks that are near & dear to me, we will be attempting to do just that here in a couple of weeks.

      Tonight will serve as one final check list of fun and affordable things we can do at KC this summer that make a few more people to join us as the Ball Diamond. Camera in hand, the final journey is set to begin!

The Diamondbacks are coming! The Diamondbacks are Coming !

         Team Waynesboro is excited to announce that an agreement has been reached between the Waynesboro Generals and the Stuarts Draft Diamond Backs of the Rockingham County Baseball League to play an exhibition game on Wednesday June 3RD. Kate Collins will be the site for the contest.

       The 7:00 contest will follow a session were fans from both organizations will have the opportunity to meet the players for the 2009 season. The official start time for the Meet The Generals & Diamondbacks is 4:30 P.M. The Generals Canteen will be open for business and admission will be free.

June 3RD @ 4:30 P.M.
