Paul Hoover has reportedly cleared waivers and accepted his assignment to Lehigh Valley. It will be a great addition to have him back again.
The Ironpig Charitie’s golf tournament was held at the Bethlehem Golf Course today and was a great time. The weather was clear and sunny and the heat didn’t really show up until around 11:00am. My foursome didn’t quite win at 8 under par but it was definately the best team out there. Thanks to Matt, Brian and Thom who made up for my Spongebob like play!
Really, this was a great time. A hot dog break was included halfway and complimentary beverages throughout the day. Even had a whole hog pig pickin lunch afterwards. There were awards and contests and a great time had by all. The best part is that this charity keeps the funds local. I also attended the Phillies caravan dinner earlier in the year and they read a list of who benefitted from this last year and it was all local. I hear it a lot and don’t mention it much but to those who we heard for a few years how the Ironpigs wouldn’t work and wouldn’t be supported.. well, I’m sure you’ve found something else to complain about.
I couldn’t mention today’s golf outting without mentioning all the groundhogs on the course today. It seemed every time I turned around there was one poking its head our way ready to steal a ball. Where is Bill Murray when you need him?
