I remember Bobby Joe Rice as a good softball player and a great baseball coach. He coached several of the teams I played on as a youngan growing up in High Shoals. Bobby Joe played a big part in my life early on. We had some great ball tems and forged lifetime friendships. God be with you my friend. God bless Judy and all of your family.
