A week away!

We are a week away! I have a lot of stuff on order and am hoping that it all gets here on time. I found our hitting discs on the front step today, shipped UPS right to the front door. We ordered a bunch of new hitting devices that will be good for practice. I know Coach Bechelli will be happy...he loves that stuff!

I patched up our old batting cage again..hopefully for the last time. We will be getting a new one for the 2010-2011 season. We are putting in a divide in the 1B side batting cage so we can make more hitting stations. Coach Bechelli and I are going to be cementing in some poles so we can put the SWING AWAYS on them. They will be located next to the newer cage on the 3B side.

There is all kinds of grass on the infield still so I am enlisting the help of Paz, Andy and JJ Janzy Jaynes. come Thursday. We have a lot to do on the field. We should be hanging the new windscreen this week. It will really dress up the field.

I am working on some bat racks and going to put in shelves for helmets in the dugout. That way everything is easy to grab and will stay dry. Maybe the sophomores can paint something cool in the dugouts this year to make it look even better.

Well...back to work!

2009-2010 Team Captains!

True leaders are not those who strive to be first but those who are first to strive and who give their all for the success of the team. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader’s commitment, the power of the team is unleashed.

Spring Trip Contests

We have decided to go to Charleston, SC this year for our spring trip games. Charleston is a city that we have visited before and have enjoyed what the city and area schools have to offer. The schedule has not been completed yet but we do have a doubleheader scheduled against the College of Charleston on March 3rd starting at 4pm. I will keep you updated on the schedule as I add contests.

Charleston is a wonderful city with many things to see and do. Our previous trips have been eventful from a canceled plane flight (we will be on a bus this year) to ghost tours out on the town. I plan on taking the team to some of the area "hot" spots and not only enjoying the entertainment the city had to offer but the educational opportunity of visiting such a historical town. I know Coach Matz will be excited...a university professor can never pass up the opportunity to explore such a cool place.
