Once a Hoo, Always a Hoo

Former #UVABASE pitcher Brandon Waddell is (literally) making an appearance in the Commonwealth today. Waddell is in his second season with the Altoona Curve, double-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and will get the start today in the final game of a series against the Richmond Flying Squirrels in Richmond. Natalie Kalibat of WRIC, the Richmond ABC affiliate, caught up with Waddell and shared this interview. It’s an Education Day at the Diamond, with first pitch set for 10:30 a.m.

Former #UVAFB standout Chris Long was at Clark Elementary in Charlottesville on Tuesday, giving a talk to the Bees. Seems like a good warm-up up for his gig as the featured speaker at UVA’s Valedictory Exercises on May 18.
