My oldest son has been placed on the JV baseball team as an incoming 9th grader. He is one of only two kids that were invited to "play up" for the summer league. My son has been working hard and really has a passion for the game. He was really nervous about try outs and in the end he proved to himself that he is a player. I was able to attend one of his two a day practices and really got a kick out of the amount of running the coach has them doing. Everytime the kids would report to their postions in the field the coach would act like he was going to put some balls in play but instead have the kids drop their gloves and go touch the 380 sign in center field. My son has been lifting weights, running, and working on the heavy bag but the amount of running at practice shocked him. He had plans to stay the night with a friend but decided it was a better move to get some rest in preperation for todays two practices. Proud of my little man as he is entering a new world and his dedication to sports has given him a taste of what it is going to take to be successful in everyday life. Looking forward to the season and watching him grow as a player but more importantly as a man. Good times for sure.
