Props to local players

From the dugout

The first thing I want to say is congratulations to coach Ted Parsons and the Barron Collier baseball team. Good luck in the state final four. Keep me updated. Congrats to Ian Parry, for a well-pitched game, and to my seniors that I have worked with. Go and bring it home.

Also, I was just looking at some stats, and we have some Naples boys doing some things in professional and college baseball...

Kyle Leith, at the University of Richmond, just picked up his first college win.

I know there are many more too. I am up late tonight after a long game. We won a 16 inning game 2-0. My boys needed this one. We are now 16-16. We had lost five in a row, and trust me they were tough ones. We lost four of them on the last at bat in the ninth inning. I think this win will get us going again. I am very proud of my boys because it is easy to get down, but we have kept everything positive up here. We have now played 32 games, and have 108 left. That sounds like a lot, but time flies. Keep in touch with me, and let me know how things are going in Naples, and try to support BC as they go on. I love it when Naples is in the news in the world of baseball.
