*****I doubt anybody other than me knew this one, but Tom Walter, the head baseball coach at Wake Forest, used to work in the front office with/for the local South Atlantic League baseball team, the Greensboro Bats, back when John Frye was the GM…I believe Coach Walters was in a sales position at that time….*****(Maybe even Coach Walter has forgot about those days)….

We also have a chance to see and meet and greet these local kids, that played here and are now coming back here….
