Summer Slam Wrap up 2023

That's a wrap!

Thank you for coming out to our annual Summer Slam Tournament this past weekend! Though we haven't tallied the final results, I'm pleased to say this weekend was a success for the club. Despite Saturday's heat, I don't believe we've had weather as good as this weekend in many years. Two of our teams (U11 Orange and U12) won their tournaments outright. Our U10 team finished in a three-way tie in their round-robin tournament and were awarded first place based on a runs allowed tie-breaker. Our U13 Orange squad also finished runner-up in their division after tightly-fought championship game. Congratulations to the boys and coaching staffs from all teams for providing some exciting baseball for all to see!

Volunteer Shout-Out

Thank you to all the volunteers over the past few days! I'd like to send a special thank you to those who helped fill the voids left open in our sign-ups. The families of the U11 Orange and U13 Orange teams were especially helpful. And though I'm sure I'm going to miss a few names, the following families went over and above - the Zuge family, the Weber family, the Enders family, the Brown family, the Andritsch family, the Jaske family and the Robb family. Also, thank you EJ Dornfeldt and Paul Balmer for acting as first-time site directors. As we often hear, it takes a village... and it certainly did this weekend.

I appreciate everyone's help to put on a show for not only our Club, but our community!

Mike Diederichs, Board Treasurer
