I did an RBI baseball game a couple of years ago. Teams from several states. I believe that the top whatever teams advanced to the next level in Orlando. (I remember that fewest runs given up was a big deal.) The kids were going to get to stay at Disney World, so they were quite excited.

I think the RBI is supposed to be for city kids. However, there were some suburban teams in the tournament, so they were careful to call themselves by the name of the city nearest them. Before my game, the tournament director asked us to ignore whatever name was on the shirts and refer to the teams by their "city" name.

I was paid by the Trenton Thunder, the minor league baseball club.
More whiskey—and fresh horses for my men!
Roll Tide!
