Field Prep Day was a huge success! Thirty volunteers arrived with rakes and shovels as they prepped the fields for Opening day, 2 MAY 2015. We dropped 3 tons of turf safe on the fields. Mark Storms brought in his tractor to till the fields. Brad Russell rolled them with his ATV. Others provide the physical labor to make this event happen. Pizza, soda and water were provided as a thank you by the board. Thank you to all who attended!!
An excellent test is to have your player hold the bat by its handle, then stretch his arms out so that his body makes
a lopsided “t” shape (lopsided because the bat makes one arm much longer than the other). If he cannot hold the
bat level with his shoulder for at least a count of ten, the bat is too heavy for him.
