As we all were , I know that Joe was very proud to be on the staff that in their first five years in existence won a World Championship . In addition to his unquestioned scouting ability I will forever be grateful for his loyalty and friendship . It was always a pleasure to come to Texas because it meant I could spend time with Joe . My condolences to Joe’s family . Sincerely , Gary Hughes

Joe was instrumental in helping my Dad with the success of the Karl Young College League in Houston, TX. He also helped me get a baseball scholarship to Blinn after Wharton ran out of money for baseball scholarships. Thanks for all you did, Joe! Rest in Peace.
