Virginia Mariners started weak and pulled it out strong for Sunday. As Chris said with the Venom, when a couple of the players stated the they sure we're big, he new we were in trouble. It was ugly, probably one of the worst licken's in a long time. But, the kids bounced back and dished one out to the Screaming Eagles. We know getting to Sunday with pitching is the key. We have the Breakers at 11am, seeded even with them. Win and we get another shot at the Venom, we'll see if they are as deep in pitching and we are less on nerves. The game is mental.
The boys looked good today even with a slow start in the first game. Hitting started coming around in the 3rd inning and kept up the whole day. Great to have Zachary Davis come out with us and he contributed hitting, pitching and fielding. All the players made contributions and that makes it a great outing. Thanks to the Wahoos for hosting and giving Cheryl and I a ride on an otherwise very long walk.
Both teams, the Force and Wahoos are excellent teams and gave us a good warm up for the State Tournament on May 23rd. So far there are 10 teams and all are competitive. You can go to the Nations Baseball. Site and check them out, set up text messages for game results and see strength rankings in the state and nation.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOMS. I know you have a present from your players because their great effort today.
And with that comes the dirty uniforms. Thanks for being baseball Moms.
We will be playing the scheduled Double Header at Smithfield, Sunday. 1pm vs the 9U and 3pm vs the 10U. Concessions will be open. Everyone is ready for a great time. It will be good to be back on some dry playing fields....cross your fingers. Weather report shows a chance of wet stuff on Thursday and Friday...none for Sunday.
