Usually that would be just a nice note with mascot Rosie Red and infielder Todd Frazier visiting. But astute Cincy fans might want to go and check out the future in Billy Hamilton, who will also be in town.
The Reds apparently are grooming the 2012 minor league player of the year for a 2014 outfield job. His strength is his speed. In 336 minor league games, Hamil-
ton has 306 steals in 372 attempts. On the scouts' speed scale of 20 to 80, Hamilton's grade is an 80.
Atlanta, you might remember, surrendered five draft picks to Cleveland in 2011 in order to draft Jones sixth overall. And it seems the Falcons are still the winners there.
But Jones has a long way to go to match the career of Moss, a Kanawha Valley legend, sure-fire Hall of Fame player - and 2013 Super Bowl participant.
His name is Robert Griffin III.
Charleston Catholic athletic director Bill Gillispie is using social media in an innovative way: to select teams for the 2013-14 Capital City Showcase basketball event.
Gillispie signed on to the WVPreps.net message board recently and asked fans to propose games - boys or girls - they'd like to see in next season's event.
