Marianne Stowe is the volunteer Blues Host Family Coordinator. She has spent many years matching our “out of town” Blues players with generous families in our county who are known for their hospitality. She says the best part of her job is knowing that many host families maintain relationships with their players for many years after the they have played with the Blues. Marianne, a retired RN/Chaplin, and her husband Keith have been residents of San Luis Obispo county for over 45 years.
Ed Gravell’s 54-year baseball career began at Los Alamitos High School (Southern CA) where upon graduation he was drafted in the 14th round as a pitcher by the Kansas City Royals. He played for the San Antonio Missions in the AA Texas League for two years when he decided to make baseball a secondary career. Ed went on to earn a BS in Microbiology from Cal State Long Beach and a MBA in Business Management from UCLA as he embarked on his “primary” career as a healthcare executive. All the while (for 17 years) continuing to play and coach in developmental leagues throughout Southern CA. When his career took him to Chicago, Ed played competitively in the Men’s Senior Baseball League earning an MVP award and setting a single-game RBI record. After trading in his cleats for coaching shoes, Ed has coached at many levels including individual pitching instruction (ages 15-21), U-16 Travel, Cal Poly Club Baseball, North County Indians College Development League, and San Luis Obispo High School.
