Today is Opening Day in the Atlantic League.  We are excited to see some new players in the league this year and get some cool autographs.  A few of our favorites are back as well...

Ross Peeples is starting his 15th season in pro baseball and his 10th with the Lancaster Barnstormers.  Ross holds lots of pitching records for the team as well as Atlantic League records. Ross has been active in the community as well as helping us out with several church events.
