  1. Congrats to my “nephew” Stedman Smith on a great game against TxSU. Coach Cador at SU had the first chance to get this kid since his Dad is a SU alum. SU’s loss is definitely PV’s gain.

  2. Kudos Stedman! Keep a clutch mindset. No matter what happens when, stay focused on the next pitch, whether you are in the box or in the field. I’m sure you will have many more days like this one, including a number of them that will be far better.

    I will print this and let Sean read about his Houston Baseball Buddy (smile)…
