The United Way Home Run Club is in full swing, having officially started on the first of April. Many thanks to David Coleman who hit a three-run home run in Saturday’s game against Virginia Tech.
On Monday night, representatives from our Team Captain, CenturyLink, and our all Star Players, The Daily Progress, Union First Market Bank and WINA, gathered at Cheeseburger in Paradise for the Coach’s Corner show on WINA, featuring UVa Baseball Head Coach Brian O’Connor.

Coach O'Connor was clearly enjoying the moment and appreciative of the extraordinary week the team had experienced: being ranked #1, Will Robert’s perfect game, and then sweeping the Hokies. Will, a young man whose academic credentials (he is graduating from UVA this year after only 3 years) are equally as impressive as his athletic ability, also did a live interview.
Come on and join the Home Run Club! We’ll be running quarter page ads in The Daily Progress every Sunday tracking the home runs and prominently recognizing our Team Members.
Listen for our ads on WINA during the games.
And, while we are having so much fun, let us remember that all of the funds raised through this effort will go to help local families and individuals struggling with many challenges. So, we all win.
