HBCU World Series

Journalist

Listen up maggots! And that's an order!
My bad @SUjagTILLiDIE I misread the schedule on my phone. But the question remains, why the people who tried to put this HBCU World Series on didn't link up with MLB for the support and logistics?

This in some ways may prove to be a better option than the HBCU WS, from an overall preparedness perspective. Hats off to both schools for making this happen on such short notice. RV's heading east on I-10 Friday morning. :cool:
