May 16th – The 2016 Bombers Baseball season is off to a great start. The boys are individually getting more comfortable with the basic skills of baseball and enjoying their share of success on the field.
We’re also seeing each team develop it’s own personality, an indication they are coming together as a group. The rest of the summer should be a lot of fun as we watch the boys grow and mature as baseball players.
Just a few quick notes / updates:
Team Pictures – We’re still finalizing a date for team pictures and a program composite photo. We hope to have a date determined by the end of this week.
Tournaments – We anticipated many of our teams would be participating in a tournament, or possibly multiple, over the course of the season. For many of our teams we wanted the boys to get a few weeks of their respective regular seasons under their belt before entering a tournament. We’ve reached that point now and will be working to find the appropriate tournament to enter our various teams.
Practice Schedules – As we enter the time of the season when some teams are involved in tournaments, our practice schedule will vary as we’re afforded more available time on the fields. We’ll do our best to publish the schedule a week in advance. But for the sake of everyone’s sanity, if we pick a time your son can’t attend, please feel free to bring them to a different practice (preferably of the same age level if possible). Even if I’m not personally attending the skills training, the other coaches assisting will happily incorporate anyone attending the training into the practice.
**Congratulations to our 10u Bombers on finishing 2nd place in the recent May Madness Tournament in Chesterfield. The boys played against some of the very best of the best 10u teams in the St. Louis area and competed well.
