Hello “Bankers” Parents –
A hope all of you and your families had a Happy & Safe 4th of July!
Tough fight but great baseball game Saturday and unfortunately it ended in defeat for us.
Not one of them should hang their heads low, baseball is a game where anything can happen and the outcome can change quickly but that is why you play hard until the last out.
The boys got to experience a different level of pitching, we had a slow start to the game but came on strong in the 4th & 5th innings.
Too bad there is a 5 run limit per inning because we were on fire in the 5th and probably would have tacked on a couple more runs!
A positive note is that we will play the same Team this Wednesday for a rematch!
Overall Coach Jon and I are proud of how the boys are playing, they are staying focused and still aggressive at the plate and not afraid to swing.
Infielders & Outfielders continue to do their jobs, improvement on backing up 2nd & 3rd on throw downs from the catcher.
We need to work on understanding what to do in specific situations and not to throw the ball around in the infield. This proves to be costly and we give up unearned runs. This comes with maturity and keeping tracking on how many outs there are and what to do with the ball when it is in their hands.
This week we have two games (remember show up time is 30 minutes prior to game time): Tuesday, July 7th @ 5:45PM (Colony Grill) and Wednesday, July 8th @ 5:45PM (Berchem Moses). Note: All of our games are played at Beardsley Field #2.
Please let me know ASAP if your son is unable to attend either of these games. Thank you.
P.S. We have been doing a good job as a Team following the social distancing guidelines but I will address the issue of others entering our dugout. Players only and a max of two players in the dugout, I had to remind the boys in the bullpen area to not congregate. If any of you see something that needs to be addressed please bring it to my attention immediately. Thank you.
