It was as great weekend of baseball for the 9U Virginia Mariners at the Wood Bat World Series. After the big storm on Thursday night which scratched our practice, we started out on Friday morning flat. Pitching was rusty and hitting was weak. We lost to a team that obtained their only win. That loss put us in the 2nd bracket and we came alive in the next game on Friday. We beat a good team and our pitching and hitting was way better. The Mariners were back to winning form. Jay pitched great the next game and we were playing behind him to win. On Sunday, Ty pitched to perfection with plenty of support. Shane Seffernick did a great job behind the plate. Zach was pulling them out at first. Liam was back to form hitting as was, Cayden. How many did Adam take for the team. LL was leading off with hits/walks what ever it took. Jayden, the bunt king and speed to beat it out, and Luke with key plays. What a great performance from bunch of 9 year olds. Chris got a lot of comments from other baseball coaches on how they looked disciplined and prepped on each pitch. We are an Elite team and showed good skill.
Beautiful and relaxing. Pool, dock and balcony At the condo are great. Checked out Croatan HS it is a hike to the softball field. Swinson Park is very nice with at least 4 fields, great place to practice. Looking forward to Fridays games, but don't want it to get here to quick, having fun doing old people stuff😎.

We are trying to set up a field for Thursday in Morehead City to practice 7/23.
Well it was a great day for being on the field. Thanks to Dave and his tractor preping the field Friday night before the rain. The kids showed rust, but it was great timing before Morehead City. EVO SHIELD gave us a good warmup. Proud of these kids as Chris moved them in about every position. No stars just team play. GO MARINERS.
Practices will be this week and we are working on another game. More info at practice.
Virginia Mariners will be together on Sunday at Bethel High School. Details to follow
The Nations Tournament has been cancelled because of teams dropping out for Pony Allstar Finals. We are working to play a double header at Bethel, but the details have not been worked out. At the least practice will be held.
