Today is the 151st anniversary of West Virginia’s admission into the Union. To celebrate, radio stations across the country should play 1971’s “Country Roads” by John Denver. (The Stylistics’ 1974 hit “Rock and Roll Baby” also mentions West Virginia).
Meanwhile, trailing 3-0 going to the bottom of the 7th inning, Prospect American Legion team scored 4 times last night to pull out a miraculous 4-3 win in their opening game at the Hillbilly Hardball Classic in Elkins, West Virginia. Pleasant’s Anson James, who is the most versatile player on the team, slugged a game-winning walk-off double.
