Our own Rosco P. Coltrane, James Best, is returning to the ballpark this summer. He will be throwing out the first pitch for the Southern Illinois Miners Baseball Team on May 29. He'll have photos for sale and will sign your memorabilia for $5 per item.
It all happens at Rent One Park, 1000 Miners Drive, Marion, IL 62959. Check at http://www.southernillinoisminers.com/ for more information.
Best is, of course, among the "Dukes" cast scheduled to appear at this year's DukesFest, making its debut in Hot-lanta. Indeed, John Schneider and his wife Elly are expecting all of the cast biggies to appear this year. DukesFest will also be your opportunity to nab a copy of a couple fun new products: Best's own DVD, "Rosco's Hazzardous Roadtrip," and Ben Jones new memoir, "Redneck Boy in the Promised Land." Yes, Jones has released his own book now to add to the fine collection of "Dukes"-related books we have out there, publishing it through Harmony Books.
Keep your eye on that DukesFest site, because they've had some fun stuff going on with the design (and the videos!).
