  1. The VBL is webcasting, via Facebook Live, the Southeastern Collegiate Prospect Showcase games, as was done for the VBL All-Star Game. Last night’s (tough watch the bottom of the 9th) video is available to watch, and tonight’s 7pm (time not exact) game will be webcasted at: https://www.facebook.com/pg/ValleyBaseballLeague/videos/?ref=page_internal. In addition, Winchester, New Market, Strasburg, and Harrisonburg have been videocasting their home games, via Facebook Live. The VBL webpage has changed the former “Listen Live” banner button to now be “Listen/Watch.”

  2. You’re most welcome, John. Correction – tonight’s VBL vs. Sunbelt League game is scheduled for 4pm, not 7pm, as I first said.
