What a story, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of when Red Laird gave me a cracked Bob Porterfield bat for being batboy vs W&L back in the 50s. I kept it for 40 years.....last time I used it to prop open the garage door when motor broke. Now I can't find it.

Very nice guy- Tim if you're reading this you made me proud to be a Hokie and I wish you the best of luck in your baseball career.
