Highlighted moment: Pitch-Out!

A fun end to a great ballgame last night, with the successful execution of a called pitch-out and caught stealing at second for the last out.

Everything has to go right. Pitcher (Abigale Krepelka) and Catcher (Olive Colby) have to be on the same page with their signs, Pitcher has to deliver to a moving target, Catcher has to catch and unload clean, and Shortstop (Makena Santos) has to catch and lay down the tag.

Great play all around, girls!


If you have a highlight from practice, school or your games you can submit them on our highlights page here.

Highlighted Moment: Tania & Kristel

Thanks to Kristel Krepelka and Tania Feduk the snack shack is set up and ready whenever we can get parents to volunteer to work during the games.

Every little but helps and your donation of time to help raise money and enhance the game day experience is appreciated.

(You ladies look younger every day!)

Notes

Admission is $5 this year and parking is free

We used to be able to park in Master Grove, that is no longer the case, bring a cooler with wheels or a wagon. There are picnic tables and restrooms in Masters Grove. There are concessions available while attending the game but its a bit of a walk and you will need plenty of cash for that.

Campus Tour After Game

Highlighted moment: Violet Sanfield

We had a wonderful thriller of a ball-game to kick off the 12U season, with the Jesters beating the Blue Lightning 11-10 on a 2-run walkoff.

Violet Sanfield had a momentum changing shoestring catch in left field of a scorched line drive from Naomi Sifton in the top of the last inning to keep the game close.  Then Violet came up in the home half, down a run, runners on second and third, as darkness overtook the proceedings, and calmly smashed a base hit to left center for the win!

Highlighted Moment: Olivia Renouf

Olivia Renouf volunteered to help with Skills Evaluation on Saturday, and she went above and beyond.

She worked tirelessly with the team running the drills for both 10u and 12u. She  played every position asked of her, shagged balls, refilled bucket after bucket of balls for the coaches, plus any task asked of her…and she did it with a smile.

Things would not have run as smoothly if we didn’t have such a willing and talented young lady by our side.

Thank you Olivia for spending your birthday with us.

You are truly amazing!
