Signal, Knoll seeking

baseball, softball reports

From Signal Staff Reports

As with every summer, the Baldwin City Signal will be publishing information received about summer sports.

This year, there will be a "coordinator" of that information, Baldwin High School senior-to-be Ben Knoll. As Knoll's senior class project, he will be doing his mentoring program through Signal editor/publisher Jeff Myrick.

Knoll will be doing various stories throughout the summer. It is hoped that arrangements with the Baldwin City Recreation Commission will be able to provide most of the details. But, coaches are encouraged to contact Knoll as well.

Knoll can be reached on his cell phone at 785-331-9418 and his home phone is 594-3609.

As in the past, coaches can send information to the Signal by FAX at 785-594-7084 or by e-mail to jmyrick@baldwincity.com.
