The Piper Davis League was founded in Birmingham, AL, in 1992 by Fred L. Plump, Jr. The league, formed to honor Negro League baseball players, was specifically named in honor of Lorenzo “Piper” Davis, a local resident of Birmingham. Prior to Piper’s passing, he shared his personal experiences with the Negro League as a Black Baron and as Black Baron Manager. The league was formed initially with three local parks—Brighton, Hueytown, and West End—with twelve teams the first year. The second year, the league expanded to twenty-four teams and the third year to thirty-six teams. At the end of the 2010 season, the league grew to sixty-four teams. In 2013, the league expanded to thirteen states, the District of Columbia, and the Bahamas. More recently, we have added the territory of Puerto Rico
Piper Davis League is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that is molding young urban student athletes into future leaders in society. Our mission is to provide opportunities to develop character, sportsmanship, self-esteem, and discipline; foster leadership; provide educational support and life skill training; and furnish a blueprint for success through sports training for the youth by creating a safe and nurturing environment through the areas of sports and academia. The league is operated from Lowery Park, a city-owned property located in the southwest sector of Birmingham, AL..

Obesite, overweight and pleasing plump; have you heard these words and cringed? Are you running through life looking for things to change your weight and risking your health? Are you always looking at things outside yourself to help you 'feel better' with the person in the mirror? Can you ever accept your appearance as it is and be happy with who you are? Impossible you say? No, it is called self acceptance regardless of outside peer pressure or forces.
My guest is Monica Parker, author of Getting Waisted: A Survival Guide to Being Fat in a Society That Loves Thin. Monica is also an accomplished comedy actress and TV writer, so she knows the struggles of looking good, perfect and small on a stage that is society. She will be sharing her decades of diet experiences, from the wild and crazy to the fads that come along. Monica found what mattered to her most in life, self acceptance and joy.

AMERICA as a NATION HAS NEVER EMBRACED 'AGING.' AMERICA has a strangle hold on YOUTH. AMERICANS CAN'T SEEM TO LET GO, IT'S AN OBESSION.
YOUTH is a marvelous time, experimenting, exploring, trials and tribulations, dealing with dancing hormones, but it's time to recognize men and women who've made remarkable contributions to life and still are, but I digress.
Our insecurities have fueled a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS PAYING HOMAGE TO 'I WON'T GROW OLD.'
WE CAN'T TURN BACK THE CLOCK, WE CAN ONLY MASK THE SIGNS OF AGING VIA PLASTIC SURGERY, BOTOX, INJECTIONS, ETC.
No matter what the surface looks like, the BIOLOGICAL PROCESS MARCHES ON UNDERNEATH.
Hormone Therapy, the...etc.
U.S. unkind to their...etc.
Plump vs Svelte...etc.

Brief Audio Reflection "Receive the Holy Spirit": (Acts 2:1-21, Pentecost Sunday.
This Sunday most of the action is in the Acts of the Apostles. So with due reverence to John’s gospel, let’s break precedent and focus on this week’s First Reading from Acts. But first, let’s borrow a thought from John’s gospel account of the risen Christ appearing in the upper-room. After greeting the apostles with the customary “Shalom,” Jesus charges them: ‘As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’ When he had said this, he breathed on them and said: ‘Receive the Holy Spirit…’
In this Lenten-Easter cycle we learned once again that we are saved. Every sin that ever was or ever will be was nailed to that cross. In the risen Christ we know that eternal life is ours. We know that it is God’s gift outright. We need only believe and, as a sign of our belief, that we be baptized into the family of believers. We know too that believing is not a spectator sport. We can’t plump down on life’s proverbial couch and wait for Dominos to deliver eternal life. Our faith must be active, not passive. Only in an active faith can we generate the hope and the love that are the legacy of our redemption.
Sadly, like the apostles, we are slow learners and fast forgetters. That’s why the Holy Spirit comes to us as it did to them, not as a visitor, but as the abiding presence of God. You can ignore him, but not if you value salvation. He’s with us now. He’s why you are reading God’s word, today. He answers every prayer. If we take nothing else from these past ninety days… be awake, be alert to God’s presence in your life. Receive the Holy Spirit.
