Little Billie

One of the great things about baseball road trips are the people you meet.  Little Billie is no exception.  Ed Kasputis was walking outside Sun Life Stadium on August 4th when he met Little Billie.

Little Billie is excited that the Miami Heat added LeBron James and Chris Bosch to their roster.  Please LeBron, don’t quite on Little Billie.  He still thinks that you are more than a Scottie Pippen.
