  • Shelby man jumps into the ticket game

    On Oct. 27 Torrey Smith found himself in St. Louis for a World Series game between the Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox.

    That’s a sports fan’s dream of course, but Smith was there to give away some prime seats.

    “We bought some great tickets, and then, in the bottom of the fourth, we gave them up to these two guys,” he said.

    Smith was using the trip – and what turned out to be a very memorable game – to promote his new business venture, JumpSeat.
