Native Mobilian, St. Paul’s graduate, former BayBear, and current Major League pitcher Jake Peavy has changed his number – from 44 to 22. Also, the Auburn Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide are hard at it on the gridiron…just a few weeks away from opening the 2014 campaign, both teams are in week two of practice. In the racing world, 20-year-old Kevin Ward Junior was laid to rest on Thursday. This, after being struck and killed by NASCAR driver Tony Stewart on Saturday in upstate New York. And, the Mobile BayBears took game two of a five-game home-stand for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. On Wednesday night, the game was suspended in the top of the ninth inning, with two outs and the BayBears leading 4-3 due to a power outage. The game resumed on Thursday evening with the BayBears scoring four more runs in the top of the ninth, winning 8-3.
