MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Kevin Pittsnogle has come a long way. And yet, he still has so much further to go. He all but admitted that Wednesday in a press conference at the Martinsburg High School media center to announce he had signed a free agent contract to play for the Boston Celtics. "I knew I would be here eventually," he said while feeling out of place behind the podium. "I'm not there yet. There is still more work to do. " For sure. But Pittsnogle's career move means as much to his hometown and the Eastern Panhandle area as it does to him. For both, it is the next chapter in a growing legacy.

A friend who works for a local corporation was almost as excited as I was. Almost. He sent me a link to the Hagerstown Suns Web site, and the announcement that July 3 and 4 will be Lou Scally Bobblehead Doll nights. The first 500 fans receive a free Bobblehead Lou. The second I saw this, I determined that I will have a Lou Scally Bobblehead or die. I will line up in June. I will camp out. I will push children out of the way if I need to. But there will be a Bobblehead Lou for the Batcave, no question.
