It was a great day for baseball yesterday. Weather was the best. Mariners played well with some new techniques added on Saturday. Our Miracle mother Andrea Turner was presented with flowers from the players and a great day for us all to take account of how we want life to be. Thanks for the reminder Tracey and a great reminder it is with Andrea.
Thanks Dave for a great looking field.
The Warriors always give us a battle, very competitive and it helps us to grow our players. We have the Western Branch Bruins coming up this Sunday at Bethel and they too will test us.
Note that we are playing in Virginia Beach October 8th and 9th. It should be an interesting tournament with the Coastal Baseball Series.
Look for text from David Overstreet to describe locations and such. Games are at 2p and 6p at Field 3 in Williamsburg.
Cheryl and I will be at Liberty University; Longwood University and or Hampton Sidney with Cameron playing in a showcase tournament with the 17U team. We certainly will be at heart and following the little ones in Williamsburg.
Virginia Mariners played well Sunday at Smithfield. We played the 12U group and won both games. The first game was tough with our hitting not coming around until the middle of the innings. Landon Turner; Landon Marston; Zach Davis and Ayden Judge all pitched and did well. Our velocity actually looked stronger in the first game then Smithfield. The second game although the rain cut it short, we hit better and jumped on an early lead. There pitching seemed a little stronger with a some curve balls showing up that we handled fine.
It's good to have early competition, especially with a big tournament coming up this weekend in Williamsburg.
We looked pretty good on defense, some work on outfield plays hitting cutoffs needs to continue. Hitting consistently is getting better as the second game showed.
