Hi, friends! It's been some time since we last saw each other. In that time, I've endured multiple corporate-wide layoffs and furloughs, and word has it more heads will fall next month. Owie! So far I've made it through unscathed, and I've even had the chance to do some Louisville Bats baseball writing!
I think a big hand is in order for Slyde and the gang. The current crew has done the most amazing job keeping fresh content up on the site, and they're great at writing funny and informative. I have a personal fondness for the Farmers Only feature, which BK has done splendidly, but everyone has helped make this a much richer community. I'm sure JD is thrilled with what these guys have made Red Reporter. I know I'm really proud.
But the reason I'm writing today is to direct you to a little feature I wrote for The Courier-Journal (The Curious One) about our friends Sam LeCure, Danny Dorn and Drew Stubbs, and their epic clash in the 2004 College World Series. (Our old buddy Justin Turner was there, too!) I had fun hearing those guys' stories. I hope you enjoy reading it!
