Tonight before the Ragsdale High School baseball game-my alma mater-the school will retire 3 baseball numbers. One of them was a friend of mine who played and coached at Ragsdale and died of a rare cancer at 56 years of age, two years ago, Ronnie Smith. The other two are recent player numbers.
Ragsdale’s coach, Donnie Manness has asked me to M.C. the retirement formalities before the start of the game. There should be some local media in attendance, along with the families, friends and fans of Ragsdale baseball. I will have my GOLD’S GYM shirt on, Â to represent the fitness center.
