The 13- 15 year old Junior Division won the RBI Mid-Atlantic Regional baseball tournament last weekend and is heading to Arlington, TX to play in the RBI World Series compliments of Major League Baseball/RBI. CTV interviewed myself and a couple of players on Tuesday for a program, “Around the Diamond” with Marvin Jackson. The program will aired on Wednesday, July 30 at 7:30 PM and on Friday, August 1 at 8:00 PM and again on Saturday at 4:00 PM, August 2, 2014. CTV channels are channel 76 on Comcast and channel 42 on Verizon. If you are interested in learning about RBI and seeing two mature and articulate players express themselves then you should watch, “Around the Diamond” with Marvin Jackson. Thanks for your support!
