Baseball News From Walla Walla

I'm hoping to get back to Walla Walla for a weekend this summer to watch the Walla Walla Sweets play baseball.  Now, I realize I can watch Major League baseball here in the Seattle area, however cool things are happening for this organization is that is not even a minor league baseball team. 
The team has a new announcer, Howard Hoffman.  Hoffman is a nationally known radio voice talent. He is also now a resident of Walla Walla.  On May 2nd, the team will host it's season party with special guest Ken Levine.    Levine is a network sit-com writer with such shows as Mash, Cheers, Frasier, and Everybody Love Raymond.  He is also a former announcer for the Seattle Mariners.  His blog has been heralded as one of the best.  Undoubtedly, he will do a humorous and light hearted story on his blog about his visit to the "valley of the double Wallas".
The Walla Walla Sweets are a member of the West Coast League, a summer collegiate league.  Another former Mariner announcer, Ken Wilson, is the league president.
