Support PhoulBallz & Its Mascot

For those of you that regularly check out this site and enjoy the exclusive minor league focused content that it serves up, I want to thank you. PhoulBallz.com began as a hobby for me and has developed into a very enjoyable side gig that comes with some nice perks, but doesn't quite fatten the wallet in a considerable fashion.

That leads me to letting you all know of a personal situation that has already impacted my family financially and could affect my ability to continue on with this site.


This week, my dog Rocky underwent an expensive surgery to remove a mass in his abdomen as well as his spleen. While doctors believe Rocky has cancer, the Independence Day holiday has delayed a full and accurate diagnosis of the issue that has potentially affected his liver. As recently as Sunday, Rocky had been playing fetch and was acting normally, but on Monday he had great difficulty walking and it became clear something was wrong. Doctors quickly confirmed he had internal bleeding and emergency surgery was required. Rocky will continue to rack up pricey medical bills as he battles the ailments that have stricken him in such a sudden fashion.

Rocky is a dynamic boy that is fun, friendly and loving. If you've ever enjoyed this site, or simply feel generous, and can afford to contribute toward Rocky's growing medical bills, your assistance would be greatly appreciated by my sweet boy and his family.

Again, thank you all for your support of PhoulBallz.com in the past, present and in the future. You can help Rocky via PayPal by clicking the button below.






**Update and thanks. Rocky has passed away. The old boy returned home following his surgery and his time in ICU, but his life did not last as long as we had hoped. We greatly appreciate any and all support offered by many of you, whether it was via donation, prayers, retweet or otherwise. Rocky was a big part of my family for over a decade and he will be missed tremendously.**
