A Great Start to the Season
This week has been great!
Lance Lynn, Cody Satterwhite and Nathan Baker all threw well
this weekend and gave us an opportunity to win. The bats were

as National Pitcher of the Week.
The more playing time each person gets, the better the team will
be as a whole. We just need to stick to the basics and perform
the way we are capable of, and we will be alright.
