To the Editor:

MV Sharks general manager Jerry Murphy and director of operations Bob Tankard are owed a huge debt of gratitude from the community for their tireless efforts in bringing us MV Sharks baseball.

Having been a host family member and ardent fan these past four years, I am acutely aware of the thousands of uncompensated hours both of them dedicated to ensure that our Sharks were able to take the field.

As with any start from scratch endeavor, the myriad tasks and problems that these gentleman faced was incredible. After the first several years feeling their way through the arduous travel schedule that the Sharks always face, a championship season unfolded. This summer followed with a divisional championship and overall second place finish.

I applaud all the efforts they and their many volunteers have made to bring us great family entertainment and a winning tradition.

May the new owner/management team bring us as much success.
