It’s the final week of Spring Training for Youth Baseball here in Boise. My kids have been living at the ball park for five days a week, through rain, snow and a cold wind. After this week, they’ll get Spring Break off. Well, maybe a few days anyway.
The team for which I’m an Assistant Coach – The AAA Oregon State Beavers, is comprised of nine, ten and eleven year old boys. The kids are giving us their all and starting to come together as a team. This week we’ll begin learning signs and some plays while we continue to go over the basics of fielding and hitting. Even our team cheer is starting to sound better and better.
The coaches all have our team Polo shirts and hats so we’ll look like we are part of the team. I also purchased an Oregon State banner that we will clip to the foul fence on our side of the field to let everyone know who we are. ;-)
Games start the first week of April and wrap up late May. Gonna be a fun season. Baseball fever – catch it!
