BOBBY VALENTINE HAS MADE A SPLASH IN THE COLLEGE RANKS, TAKING OVER AS THE NEW ATHLETIC DIRECTOR FOR THE CATHOLIC EAST COAST POWERHOUSE, SACRED HEART UNIVERSITY, AND LOOK FOR FIREWORKS TO COME OUT OF THIS EAT COAST SCHOOLS ATHLETIC PROGRAM, WITH BOBBY V AT THE HELM FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS. BOBBY V HAS ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN FOR HIS COMPETITIVE SPIRIT, HIS CONFRONTATIONAL BEHAVIOR, AND HIS AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TO GETTING THE BEST OUT OF HIS PEOPLE. THESE TACTICS SHOULD PUT FANS IN THE STANDS,  SELL OUT ALL SEASON TICKETS, INCREASE ADVERTISING TWO-FOLD, AND BRING A BETTER LEVEL OF HIGH SCHOOL TALENT TO EVERY SPORTS TEAM WITHIN THE SACRED HEART UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC PROGRAM., ESPECIALLY THE BASEBALL PROGRAM.  HAVING MANAGED SEVRAL PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL TEAMS, SUCH AS THE INTERNATIONAL  CHIBA LOTTE MARINES OF THE JAPANESE BASEBALL MAJOR LEAGUE, AND ALSO MLB TEAMS TO INCLUDE, THE TEXAS RANGERS, THE NEW YORK METS, AND THE BOSTON RED SOX, BOBBY VALENTINE BRINGS SEVERAL YEARS OF MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL MANAGERIAL EXPERIENCE, BUSINESS ACUMEN “(BEING A VERY SUCCESFUL RESTAURANT OWNER)”, AND ALSO,  THE INTESTINAL FORTITUDE AND THE DESIRE TO SUCCEED WITH THE SACRED HEART  PROGRAM, BECAUSE HE IS PROBABLY THE MOST “DEVOUT CATHOLIC” SPORTS FIGURE IN THE NATION. WHEN HE COACHED THE TEXAS RANGERS, YOU WOULD FIND BOBBY VALENTINE IN ATTENDANCE OF MASS  ON A DAILY BASIS AT HIS FAVORITE CATHOLIC PARISH,  IN THE DIOCESE OF THE COUNTY THAT HE WAS COACHING IN. THIS HAS HAPPENED IN ALL OF HIS HEAD COACHING JOBS, AND ALSO AS A BENCH COACH WHERE EVER HE HAS COACHED DURING HIS CAREER.  BOBBY VALENTINE WAS ALSO A MAJOR LEAGUE PLAYER HIMSELF, HAVING PLAYED IN THE MLB FOR 10 YEARS WITH SEVERAL MLB CLUBS, TO INCLUDE, THE LOS ANGELES DODGERS(1969, 1971-72), THE CALIFORNIA ANGELS(1973-1975), THE SAN DIEGO PADRES(1975-1977),  THE NEW YORK METS(1977-1978), AND THE SEATTLE MARINERS, (1979). HIGH SCHOOL, JUNIOR COLLEGE, AND ALSO, COLLEGE PLAYERS HAVE ALWAYS RESPECTED  THE MANAGERS THAT HAVE  PLAYED THE GAME  AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THE MANAGER  THEY ARE PLAYING FOR UNDERSTANDS THE ACTUAL MECHANICS, AND ALSO THE TRUE DYNAMIC OF THE ACTUAL BASEBALL GAME, IN IT’S ENTIRETY.

THE MYBOYSAY NATIONS COLLEGE BASEBALL ENTHUSIASTS WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE BOBBY VALENTINE ON HIS NEW JOB AS THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR OF THE  GREAT SACRET HEART UNIVERSITY, AND WE WISH HIM MUCH SUCCESS, GOING FORWARD.
