I just returned from Telkwa after playing in the Slo-Pitch tournament that I mentioned in an earlier post.
We played against Hammer's former team, but he wasn't in the lineup this year. (Obviously due to his recovery from off-season surgery) However, the following day, there he was standing outside the fence in civvies, watching his buddies play.
I went over and wished him luck, telling him that he and the 'Nucks had the whole Province behind them. He was very nice, saying thanks and shaking my hand. He signed a few autographs for kids (and a couple of adults as well ) before heading for home.
I didn't talk to him much, but I heard through the grapevine that he is "hopeful" that he'll be ready to go by training camp.
