  1. Awesome roll call for the Wyoming connection of Tracy & Co. Hoping for a great on field performance for today’s game. Seniors shine…Pokes bowl destination will become authentic today! Cowboy Tough, and ready to rumble.

  2. Wow that is a who’s who in baseball circles. I have worked with Alan Simpson from Perfect Game the past few years…he is a very nice guy and one of the best in the business.
