This past Wednesday marked the 106th birthday of Dr. Seuss, the pioneer of modern children’s literature. His birthday his celebrated through Read Across America, a national initiative that calls for every child to celebrate reading. Schools across the country participate in this program by bringing in guest readers to read to the children. SouthPaw and the ValleyCats were the guests at Carroll Hill Elementary School in Troy.
The fourth annual Hannaford Kidz Expo will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the concourse of the Empire State Plaza in Albany. The ValleyCats will have their speed pitch machine set up for kids to see just how fast they can really throw.
