A gift from the foundation of former Buffalo Bills’ owner Ralph Wilson is helping move a Rochester youth sports facility forward.

The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, continues to award grants to area youth sports organizations and activities years after his passing, and one of the latest projects involves a youth training facility adjacent to the soccer stadium on Oak Street in Rochester.


Science and sports are the topics on this edition of Connections. In the first part of the show, shark researcher Gregory Skomal joins us. His presentation at the Rochester Museum and Science Center is part of their "Science on the Edge" series. He was supposed to be here a month ago, but weather canceled his appearance.

Later on, with the death of Ralph Wilson, what's the future of the Bills staying in Western New York? Journalist and author Scott Pitoniak joins us to talk about the future of the Bills, and the legacy of Ralph Wilson.
