Still working

Billy Wagner retired from major league baseball after last season, but is still pitching - to his kids and throwing out the first pitch at Saturday's Bluefield Blue Jays game.
Wagner hosted a bunch of country singers in Bluefield in a fundraiser for his Second Chance Learning Center, helping encourage youth to stay in school and become the leaders of tomorrow.
“I retired to work, that is what I keep telling people, I retired to work,” Wagner said. “This is a dream and something I feel that is more important than a baseball career. I enjoy it."
