My Two Cents: A Night With The Jackson Generals

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterJackson, TN – During a family vacation this summer, my family and I were blessed to meet a remarkable young man named Dusty Stanfill.  He was born facing challenges that most of us couldn’t imagine.  You can read his story here. I remember that all he talked about was his beloved baseball team, the Jackson Generals.  

Since returning from vacation, I had been trying to figure out a way to pay him a visit, so what better way than to surprise him at a baseball game.  So, working with some fabulous people at the Jackson Generals, I straddled the Harley and took off.

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsPapillion, NB – The Nashville Sounds made history Wednesday night by no-hitting the Omaha Storm Chasers. A combined effort from Chris Smith, Sean Doolittle, Tucker Healy, and Simon Castro got the job done for the Sounds in their 4-0 victory. It was the seventh no-hitter thrown in club history and first since Manny Parra’s perfect game in 2007.

Smith, the Sounds starter, cruised through the first six innings, allowing just two base runners via base on balls. He then handed the ball off to Doolittle who is with the club on a Major League rehab assignment. Doolittle needed just 12 pitches to retire the three Storm Chasers he faced including two punch outs.

Healy came on in the eighth inning and sat the three Omaha hitters he saw down in order on a mere nine pitches.
