(Editor's note) Neil Dishman plays in the Detroit MSBL and is a teammate of the St. Thomas Waves, who are regulars in the MSBL World Series in Arizona. This year the Waves and the other St. Thomas teams won't be making the trip. Hurricane Irma devastated them back home and they need your help. Neil forwarded us a plea from his friends in St. Thomas. We wanted to share it with you as written.
is an article a teammate and friend has posted on Facebook. We are
trying to generate support and
provide relief for our friends in the US Virgin Islands. Is this
something that can be shared on a National level maybe via Facebook from
your site, or the webpage?
Detroit MSBL and tournament teammate of the WAVES!
A lot of my friends know that I have Played Baseball with the St. Thomas wave US Virgin Island team for almost
While the US is consumed with who will be taking a knee or standing
before a game played by over privileged adults. They seem to have
forgotten about The US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
My friends and many many others are suffering and trying to survive
without basic necessities we take for granted every day. I have been in
contact with a few of my brothers from St. Thomas and have gathered some
addresses that can receive care packages.Steve Parris has given me a list of things that are most crucial.
I am asking for your help.
Neil Dishman and I are going to collect as
much as possible and get them to our teammates. Time is of the essence.
If you can help please do. Neil has a company located in troy that we
will use as a drop off place. him and I will package it up and send it
off. Also things can also be dropped off to
me, or I can always pick them up.
To those of you that have played with these guys you know how great they are and how much they mean to me.Sean Michael,Jon Michael, Debbie Christie, Aaron Wick, Jason Knoll,Joe Small, Scott MacDonald, Michael J. Miller,Dan Gliot, Nick McIntosh Anthony Agbay, Ryan Ford,Joshua Johnson,Russell Luxton Jr. We have grinded out some championships with these guys, they need us
now. If you play Baseball in the Detroit MSBL or SCS MABL, and have
played in AZ you probably have played
a ST. Thomas team. Michael Juliano
