While the RBI Program endeavors to produce good ballplayers, it is also our endeavor to assure that all players have a solid academic foundation. With that said we are once again proud and honored to announce that Anthony “Manny” Atkinson has received a full academic scholarship from Bacone College in Muskogee, OK where he will be majoring in Computer Programming.
