Friday is get-down-to-business time for the Waynesboro Generals, who open their season on the road at Rockbridge. Thursday was a break from the preparations for the 2011 Valley League season for several members of the team who helped Wenonah Elementary School with its annual Field Day.
“We’re just playing around with the kids, just having a good time,” said Michael Davis, a catcher from Walters State Community College in Morristown, Tenn.
For Joseph Lucas, a Bridgewater College product and Waynesboro native, the day was also about reconnecting with people who watched him pitch for Waynesboro High School a few years ago.
“I remember looking up to the Generals as being big-name baseball players. Now to fill that role is an honor,” Lucas said.
