Comments -

Frank Howard John Smoltz pitched the first at-home no-hitter in the 9-year history of the Silver Spring franchise against the Norfolk Pilots (Game 2, Series 12). It was only the second no-no in franchise history, Steve Avery (geeze, whatever happened to him?) pitching the other one on the road a few years ago.

 

Adding insult to injury, during the no-hitter Smoltz beaned Pilot super-star Larry Walker, sidelining him for 4 games. And his replacement in RF, Mark Whiten, wasted no time in crashing into the wall chasing a fly ball and was injured for the rest of the series.

 

Dave May - Gentlemen of TCBA-Today. This is your lucky day. You get the pleasure of dealing with one of baseball's all-time easy marks, Dr. Dave May.

The guy thinks he's a baseball expert, when in reality, he knows nada.

Dealing with Dave is like taking candy from a baby. So count your lucky stars and be joyful this holiday season, 'cause Santa just delivered your answer to an easy mark!

 

Here is Dr. Dave's bio below, read it, laugh out loud and then grab a Jenny and think of all those great deals you're going to make.

 

It was a bone chilly day. On the hilltop stood a single caped figure, silhouetted against the waning light of the evening. The lonely masked man's cape silently waving in the gentle breeze of the coming darkness.

Who is this man, dressed in black, wearing a sabre on his hip? Could it be? Might it be? Nah, it's just Doc May, dressed funny for some Halloween party.

Dr. Dave May, the current GM of the Niagara Falls Toxins is the junior member of TCBA Yesterday league. Dave has been married to his wife of

25 years, Mary and they have 2 teenage sons. He admits to being 50 years old, but claims that the calendar really lies about his age, he contends he feels more like 25 than 50. His birthday is (yes, you guessed it) in May and he was born in Buffalo, NY and grew up in the surrounding area.

Dave was a lieutenant for the Niagara Falls PD, and had been a police officer for over 24 years until his retirement in (yup, you guessed

right) May of '98. He has a Ph.D. in management and various other degrees covering a myriad of subjects (how many cops do you know who are also doctors?). He is retired from the US Army Reserve (Master

Sergeant) and also served in the US Navy during the 60s. Dave has served his community for 14 years as an elected official, holding office as a member of the local school board and recently retiring from the county legislature. He also is the president of an investment club.

When asked to describe himself, Dave's answer is, "Many individuals have remarked that I bear a strong resemblance to Dan Quayle, the former Vice President, but only 20 pounds heavier.

Hobbies include baseball (both as a participant and in a fantasy league and APBA league); he has served as the commissioner of one fantasy league and belongs to an APBA league in which he is the newsletter editor. He plays tennis (won several police state tournaments in doubles), golf (a 9 handicapper) and collects many interesting items such as baseball cards (over 100,000 of them), Hummels (lots of them) and other unusual collectibles.

Baseball is Dave's first love. He was a pretty darn good player in his day, but decided that military life was his calling. His involvement in TCBA can only be interpreted as returning to that first love. Dave promises to make the upcoming season for his team a memorable one and that the team will be competitive.
