Mr. Stokes,
     How are you?  It is Jonathan Hernandez and I played for Fulton in 2004 when we had the navy blue jerseys.  I enjoyed my time there. I am always checking online with the website to see how the boys at Fulton are doing. I am happy to see the success and the direction of the baseball program is heading. You guys do such an amazing job and I am glad I was a part of the first team to continue to play in Fulton in 2004.
     I have two children daughter (6) and a son (10 months) and also married. I am also the head baseball coach at the High school I attended. I still live in Miami and I speak to Mrs. Elaine via Facebook to check up on the guys. I hope all of you are doing well and I am glad to see that the program has grown to what it is now. Good luck in the future and I know the players will do great this upcoming summer season!

Gooo Railroaders!
Thanks. Jonathan Hernandez
