The ninth "Smokey" Joe Williams Scholarship Banquet is the evening of April 3, and features two Hall of Fame pitchers: Juan Marichal and Fergie Jenkins. The "Smokey" Joe Williams Scholarship was established in 2000, and so far 15 student-athletes from Williams' hometown have been the beneficiaries. The Banquet is a great place to meet living legends and hear their baseball stories. (And of course get some autographs.) In the past we've had Buck O'Neil, Monte Irvin, John "Mule" Miles, "Mudcat" Grant, Red Moore and others as speakers. Come and join us for a great evening! You can email me for tickets, or call 830-401-2302. I hope to see you there!
