Oil Can and Bop at Bobby Bonds Symposium

Whats Up Everyone?

Thank You for checking out our brand new website and please check back for more updates as I will try to post interesting news as often as possible!!

On July 27th, Bop and I had the pleasure of speaking at Bobby Bonds Symposium for the preservation of sports in historical black colleges. While at the Symposium, we had the pleasure of meeting Frank Evans and Ken Free, both former Negro League ballplayers. Mr. Evans told me stories of he and my father Willie James back in the good old days.

We also had the opportunity a conducting a clinic for The Bahamian Youth Team along with the Detroit RBI team. I would like to thank Mark Salter and William Forrester for arranging the clinic.

On Sunday, we played a double header against two semi pro teams in the Montgomery AL area at Patterson Field. I actually pitched 7 innings and the game ended in a 4-4 tie.

The trip was a success as ESPN filmed us and will be airing a feature on The AllStars this coming Sunday 8/26 on SportsCenter. At this time, I would like to thank Chris for all the work he has put into getting this piece done!! Thanks Chris!!

Outside of that, I have been making charity appearances in the New England area and Delino will be attending a Clinic in Chicago on 8/24 put on by teammates Nolan Lane and Kerron Walker. Yuri Sanchez will also be in attendance.

Please check back often for more updates on The AllStars and THE UBL. We would love to come and play in your town!!! After all, that's what "barnstorming" is about. If you are interested, please contact Norman Yee at the number listed on the home page or email him at
