37 To Go

From the dugout

July 26th……….8 day road trip…Long Season, over the 100 game mark…52-49 Baseball is a funny game..Sometimes you win the games you are not supposed to, and other times you lose the ones you have complete control of….and both of those scenarios can happen within 10 pitches or less…I am still very happy with my team's progress, and have learned so much about this game……You have to keep it fun, and never let down your guard….This is also a time that you can definitely notice that hardly no one on my team has ever played this many games…Whether it be nagging injuries, fatigue, or just a look on the face, baseball now becomes a big learning process for these kids….This last month will teach the kids what they need to do in the off-season to stay strong for a whole season, and start that process of getting mentally tough for the higher levels…We have definitely had our share of tough games this year, too….we are closing in on 50 1 run games….These games will really help these players as they move higher but they also turn managers' hair grey too….We have also sent 6 players up to the Miracle, and that is our main job…It's tough to lose some leaders, but when they do go, our job is to develop more…. 37 games left, and hopefully some playoff games..Then I will be back in Naples……Jeff
