base coach Brett Butler after signal mixup

With a man on first and the Marlins trailing Pittsburgh by two runs in the seventh, Christian Yelich received the hit and run sign from Butler at a time when wholesale nhl jerseys that strategy would be considered unwise.

Rather than look for a pitch to hit, Yelich followed instructions, went after the first pitch thrown to him in order to protect the runner and grounded weakly to second.

Yelich was livid and expressed his anger openly in the dugout afterward.

But the debate didn’t end there.

After the inning ended, Butler and Goff became engaged in a heated exchange, with Butler contending he was merely relaying the sign that was sent in from the dugout and Goff countering that no such sign was sent, sources said.

Butler was informed Tuesday morning of the decision to remove him as third base coach. Lenny Harris, the team’s assistant hitting coach, was named the new third base coach even though he has limited experience in that role.

Jennings characterized the decision as one aimed at moving Butler into the dugout, where his experience as a player and coach could be better utilized.

Asked if Monday night’s confusion over signs prompted the decision, Jennings replied: “I’m not going to talk about things that happen on the field. Those things are internal.”

Jennings also refused to confirm whether Redmond also had issues with Butler.

“You’ll have to speak with Red,” Jennings said. “I’m not going to answer for Red.”

MORSE ON DLThe Marlins placed slumping first baseman Michael Morse on the 15 day disabled list with a sprained right ring finger and sent him back to Miami to see a hand specialist.

“He battled through it, and [we] just felt like we needed to get him healthy so that he wasn’t feeling every swing, feeling the pain in it,” Jennings said.

Jennings said that Morse would eventually receive at bats cheap jerseys in minor league rehab games. The Marlins are trying to get Morse back on track at the plate. He is hitting just .211 and lost the starting job at first base to Justin Bour.

THIS AND THATJose Fernandez will throw another simulation game Thursday before taking the mound on Monday at extended spring training in Jupiter in an wholesale jerseys actual wholesale nfl jerseys game.

Jarred Cosart (15 day DL, vertigo) is scheduled to throw off a mound Wednesday and Friday and begin pitching in extended spring training on Monday.

Mat Latos (15 day DL, left knee) will throw off a mound Saturday and Monday before joining Fernandez and Cosart in extended spring training later next week.Articles Connexes:

Mrs. Brown called Rural Missions to see about a ramp for her husband before he got home from rehab for his surgery. When Anderson went inside to look at what she needed he found her floors sinking in her foyer, kitchen and a bedroom.


Faith Community Chapel built her a ramp in the beginning of June.

Colonial Heights did the foyer and bedroom floors.

We have been blessed by the United Methodist Women and their Pastor – Rev. Scarlett Hester of the Surfside United Methodist Church (Anna Marie Marshall, Nancy Yongue; Cindy Fink; Shirley Pendergrass;  Sandy Elliott; Linda Stiwalt; Diane Stiles; Patti Sweeney; Mary Hope Funkhouser; Elaine J. Reid; and Judy Lienemann).  These wonderful women came to visit with us on this past Tuesday, March 6th.  They were given a tour by two volunteers from First United Methodist Church, Greenfield, Massachusetts (the volunteers from this Church have been coming for more than 25 years).    At the end of the tour, they came into the Chapel where our Prayer Warriors were meeting.  We had a most blessed spiritual gathering with our Father, God…. and the Members.  It was so uplifting that we had difficulties trying to get to the Benediction.   They brought gifts for the Sea Island families also.  Once again:  Thank you from the depths of our hearts!  As Mrs. ‘G’ says:  “HALLELUJAH AND PRAISE THE LORD!”  Our doors remains opened at all times.

The home we have been working on with new construction is 2/3 completed.

We were hit by Hurricane Matthews in 2016 also. We had to move out of our offices twice – major water damages. We were able to move back into our offices approximately one month and ten days (Hurricane Irma) versus approximately ten months (Hurricane Matthews). Thanks for all your Prayers and donations (monetary, supplies or materials). Keep us in your Prayers daily. Thanks for making the dream work with teamwork.

Our Very Own Linda Gadson Was Featured on College of Charleston’s Alumni Site

See below for the full article or visit the College of Charleston website:

linda_gadsonCofC alumna Linda Dingle Gadson ’72, originally from Hollywood, SC, is the Executive Director of Rural Mission, Inc., on Johns Island, South Carolina, where she has worked for 45 years. Rural Mission is a non-profit organization founded to care for migrant farm workers and needy families. Ms. Gadson’s son, Shaytee Gadson, who is also an alumnus of the College, wrote a book about her life called Hallelujah in Hollywood.

During high school, Ms. Gadson she chose to attend St. Paul’s to take part in desegregating the school and graduated in 1967. She spent a year at South Carolina State College in Orangeburg, SC, until she moved home and worked at the Medical University of South Carolina’s Nursing School and participated in the 1969 nurses’ strike. In 1969, as a young mother, Ms. Gadson started classes at the College of Charleston.

While at the College, Ms. Gadson was a work-study student, an Eleanor Roosevelt Scholar, and was active in the civil rights movement at Morris Brown AME Church.

“The greatest thing that happened to me was to go to the College because of the opportunities that were there,” she said. “And I went the year after the College was integrated.” When Ms. Gadson graduated in 1972 with a degree in political science, she planned to go to law school.

After commencement, Ms. Gadson started working at Rural Mission as a summer intern, working her way up to Executive Director. In 2010, then-Governor Mark Sanford recognized Ms. Gadson with the Order of the Palmetto, the highest award presented by the Governor of South Carolina to a citizen. Ms. Gadson’s philosophy of life was handed down to her by her grandmother: you can’t understand a person’s life until you have walked a mile in their shoes.

One Dollar At A Time

Posted by on May 2, 2017 in Rural Mission News | Comments Off on One Dollar At A Time

Today is Giving Day! It’s the day when you are encouraged to donate to local nonprofits and charities for a full 24 hours. And while most years we have been a part of a larger organized fundraising campaign, this year, we’ve decided to do things a little bit differently. IMG_1150

For the full month of May, we’ve decided to focus on taking small steps toward our goal by hosting a $1 fundraising campaign.

That’s right! We’ll be accepting any $1 donations — or larger amounts, of course — to go toward our ultimate goal of $10,000 that will help us purchase building materials for Sea Island homes.

Whether it’s a one-time donation or a once-a-day donation, we appreciate any and all help you’re willing to provide. You can make a donation online or by mailing in a check to P.O. Box 235 Johns Island, SC 29457

With your support, we know we can reach our goal — one dollar at a time.

Coat Distribution Helps Warm Up Lowcountry Residents

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Rural Mission News | Comments Off on Coat Distribution Helps Warm Up Lowcountry Residents

While Rural Mission has participated in coat distributions in the past, this year we took it up a notch.

Two members of the Trenholm Road United Methodist Church in Columbia started this ministry more than 10 years ago, however this is the first time they have shared their coat distribution, “Coats for Kindness,” on the Sea Islands.


After connecting with Rural Mission, the United Methodist Church decided to bring their “Coats for Kindness” to the Lowcountry.

The pastor of the church, Reverend James (Mike) Smith and the congregation has a history of ministry with Rural Mission.


Hosted on a Saturday, the coat distribution gave away more than 125 coats for children, young adults and adults. People came from near and far to stock up on warm coats for their families, leaving only 10 coats untouched.

“This was such a blessing as they made this great sacrifice on a Saturday afternoon,” said Linda Gadson, president of Rural Mission. “All of the families who received, especially the grandparents, were so touched by this experience. All of the coats were brand new!”


With such a great turnout, both Rural Mission and the United Methodist Church in Columbia look forward to hosting a coat distribution for many more years!

Day of Caring Volunteers Lend a Hand to Rural Mission

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Rural Mission News | Comments Off on Day of Caring Volunteers Lend a Hand to Rural Mission

A 15-year tradition in the Lowcountry, Trident United Way’s Day of Caring brings together hundreds of nonprofit agencies such as Rural Mission with thousands of volunteers on one day dedicated to improving the tri-county community.

This year, the Day of Caring connected Rural Mission with more than 20 volunteers from AMT Senior Aerospace, a department of Boeing.


The team got right to work helping Rural Mission with cutting wood for local residents in need. They also helped clear Rural Mission’s yard and put new siding on the building — both of which were damaged during Hurricane Matthew.

“We at AMT South Carolina felt honored to be able to participate in Days of Caring. Providing service with our different levels of skills for Rural Mission meant a lot to us. We appreciate being able to give back and do something positive for our community,” said Christina Guzman, Coordinator at AMT Senior Aerospace. “We were welcomed with open arms and felt very appreciated by the staff at Rural Mission along with other members of Rural Mission. We look forward to volunteering our services again for Rural Mission. We believe we have found a wonderful partnership!”


As a thank you, Rural Mission cooked authentic Gullah food for the workers.

There is still more work to do, but the efforts of the AMT Senior Aerospace volunteers made a huge difference!

Citadel Cadets on Leadership Day

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Rural Mission News | Comments Off on Citadel Cadets on Leadership Day

Each year, the Citadel hosts Leadership Day, as a way to provide students with the opportunity to learn through service in the community, interact with diverse populations, train for ethical and skilled leadership and serve as a trained leader for service teams and/or prepare for service and leadership within their discipline.


The Citadel cadets have been coming to Rural Mission for more than 4 years and jump right in helping with whatever projects we need help with.

This year, our biggest project was clean-up after Hurricane Matthew. With countless branches, leaves and debris scattered across our lawn and on our roofs, there was much to be done.


Thankfully the cadets did not disappoint! They did what they always do and worked hard clearing branches and cleaning off our roofs. They even chopped wood to help our residents who use wood stoves and fireplaces for heating.


We are so thankful to have the Citadel cadets helping us each year! They are a true blessing to our organization.
