Best Part Of Playing Amateur Baseball: Playing the game we love with great people. Never getting old! Most importantly, playing the game the way it's meant to be played and setting a great example for the kids watching!
Which Team is Our Biggest Rival? Everyone. I honestly dislike, with a passion, every team we play. There is no room to have friends, other than your teammates, on any playing surface... After the game is an exception.
Who is the slowest player on the team? Is Chris Sturm still on our roster?
Wood Bat or Composite Bat? wood bat
Day Game or Night Game? night game
Favorite Baseball Movie: Bull Durham
One More Thing... If you are reading this and from an opposing team, please throw at me. I love wearing pitches. For the young guys... Enjoy everyday that you get to play this great sport. Have fun and play hard. You have to be able to accept failure knowing that you still have a chance to be successful. Know that there are kids watching you and wanting to be like you someday.
