    Halfway through the Sonny Chaput Award presentation Friday afternoon, Jey Gregory noticed heads starting to turn at him while sitting on the bleachers before the second game of the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission’s major league world series.

    Then players from the Mariners and Braves started to point fingers at him at University Drive Park in Elizabethtown.
