Scott Strode of Middlebourne is the founder/president Silverstar Group Ltd, a non-profit that has several endeavors involving youth sports. Their baseball group began play in July and proceeded to play about eight games until joining the OVBL fall high school league in the Marietta/Parkersburg area. They were able to play 15 games in the league, so as a group they ended up playing close to 25 games.

Strode recently said, ” we had a seriously dedicated group of players and parents that always made sure we had enough kids there to compete.” He added they were able to basically get in a full baseball season since their school season was cancelled. Strode said all of the kids are Tyler kids pictured are Tyler Consolidated kids with the exception of Alec Chaplin who is from Paden City. He said they also had Will McGinnis from PC for a short time as well.
