Former Free Agent Pitcher Jadofsky Moves To Lynchburg

Braves Minor League Report: Thursday 718

Thursday, July 18, 2013 - by David Jenkins
A pitcher whose career has been largely below the radar, Zach Jadofsky, has been promoted from Rome to Lynchburg, while Matt Caffee was sent back a notch.

In 29 games for Rome this season, the right-hander out of West Florida University was a productive 6-3 with a pair of saves. He built off a strong 2012 at Danville (1.95 in 15 games). Jadofsky was signed as an undrafted free agent the week after the 2011 draft.
------------ 
Rangy third baseman Mike Dodig (6-4, 210)  celebrated his 20th birthday last week.
This week, he and his .300 average were promoted from Disney (Gulf Coast) to Danville.

Dodig was drafted in the 10th round of the 2012 draft, but hit only .174 in his debut season.

John Shearer: Watching Some UNC Tar Heel Basketball – Again

Several days ago, I headed over to Chapel Hill, N.C., to watch the University of North Carolina men’s and women’s basketball teams play for the second December in a row.   While I generally pull for the Tar Heel men’s team, they are only about my third or fourth favorite college basketball team. In fact, I actually pulled hard for Indiana, my favorite team along with my ... (click for more)

New School Funding Ideas

After reading the article “County Schools Prepare To Set Priorities For Next Round Of School Building Funding,” I could not help but think about how helpful it would be to have the millions of taxpayer dollars given the owners of Walnut Common apartments to build some new schools.   In case you did not know, since 2008 our elected officials have given away millions in taxpayer ...

Roy Exum: John Glenn’s ‘Hero’

When John Glenn became the first man to orbit earth, the timing was perfect. I was 13 years old at the time, in need of a hero, and I latched on to the astronaut tighter than a tick. All of us boys knew he’d flown 150 missions in fighters in World War II and Korea and, believe me, he was “The Right Stuff” long before the great movie about the Mercy 7 daredevils came out about 30 ...
