Married 41 years (yes; to the same wonderful woman). Three children, 7 grandchildren, and a shih tzu. Retired Air Force. Started playing baseball with tennis balls and broom sticks in my front yard. Infield was inside the fence and the outfield was out into the street. Remember listening to the Oakland A's on the newly invented transistor radio. After many years of slow pitch softball and coaching Little League, here I am.

I’m married with 5 kids and 2 dogs. We live in Goodlettsville, TN and I commute down each week for work. I have a BA in History and have traveled the world with the US Army from which I am retired. Since I spend the week in Huntsville, love history, and thoroughly enjoy baseball, I decided to form at least one vintage base ball team in Huntsville back in 2014. A year and a half later it finally got to steam rolling and we were able to play another new team in a doubleheader in November 2015. You can trust me to be a contributing member to this team because I started it all here in Huntsville, so I’m the least likely to walk away from it.
Your word is your name.

I’m married with 2 fur kids and my first human son due March 2016. We live in Harvest, AL across the street from Rabbit. I have a BA in MIS from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide Roll!) and am currently working to words a MS in MIS to be completed sometime in 2018. I currently work for Hexagon Safety and Infrastructure and commonly travel most weeks so any given work day I could be in another state or another country. I’ve always enjoyed playing baseball and was actively playing up into my early college years. I’ve wanted to join a ball league since moving to Huntsville in 2010 but due to my work schedule committing to a team that plays during the week was difficult. When Rabbit first asked me about joining the team I jumped at the idea feeling it was a huge opportunity to be part of something special. I plan to continue as long as my body allows me to do so.

I am an event coordinator at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment. A musician at heart and married to the most beautiful voice in Alabama. My very first "at bat" in T-ball was a line drive straight into the pitcher's left eye. I've loved the game ever since. Why can you trust me to be a contributing member of this team? Because I run the home field... JK!
To swing is to miss. To hit is to run. To run... is fun.

Born and raised in NJ, college in PA, then Army and government work after that. Moved toHuntsville in 2010 after 8-years at Ft. Meade, MD. Earned a BS in Psychology/Criminal Investigations, and a MA in Human Resource Development. Married with two dogs and recently (Aug) welcomed our first child. Enjoy almost any sports/exercise activity and am a competitive runner/triathlete. Honestly didn’t much care for baseball growing up, never played past little league. But when Lemon Drop mentioned the vintage league idea, it sounded interesting and told him I’d contribute what I could as an athlete and assist with recruiting. Absolutely loved the experience after our first exhibition game and look forward to learning more of the game and appreciating its history.
