Field Prep Day – 25 April – A HUGE Success!

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!!

How to Select a Proper Youth Baseball Bat

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.

Double Goal Coaching

Little League Double-Goal® Coaches have two goals, winning, and more importantly, teaching life lessons through baseball and softball. Double-Goal® Coaching is a model that was termed by Positive Coaching Alliance, which partners with Little League for the Little League Double-Goal® Coaching program.

This program helps coaches teach players learn how to win, on and off the field. It also means that regardless of their skill level, players can take from baseball and softball invaluable lessons in teamwork, discipline, compassion and handling adversity and apply those lessons in school, jobs and their family lives.
