Spy Coverage of Cathedral City

Against the advice of doctors, I am flying to Palm Springs on Wednesday to cover the weekend Cathedral City Classic. Expert photographer Dennis Anderson will also be there shooting photos for Spy.  The final game schedule is on the web.  Walking with a cane; have an authentic black thorn Irish walking stick but TSA previously decided it was a shillalegh and the knob could be used as a club, so it’s staying in Virginia.  Herniated discs in neck and spine will keep me off the steps as much as possible; appreciate your consideration on seating.


NPF News
AKRON, Ohio – Feb. 21, 2012 – Akron Racers’ General Manager Joey Arrietta took a step forward in an effort to solidify the Akron Racers infield by announcing the singing of University of Florida standout second baseman Aja Paculba today. Paculba comes to the Racers as a free agent after spending one season with the NPF Diamonds. As the second baseman for the University of Florida, Paculba garnered several achievements including tying the UF softball record for longest hitting streak (16 games), career runs scored (188), on-base percentage (.459) and single-season records for runs (69), walks (49), and stolen bases (27).
