We are into the second full week of the new year and it feels like baseball weather. I attended the PA Baseball/Softball Coaches Clinic in Pittsburgh this weekend and it really got me excited for 2020 and the upcoming season. I picked up a few items that will help us this season and moving forward and some tweaks to ideas we already have in place.
This week we will again workout Tuesday and Thursday from 3-5. The first hour is speed work and the second will be open cage. Tuesday’s weather looks great so plan on going outside for the first hour (possible hour and a half) to do speed training and throw. Every opportunity we have to throw this week players should take advantage. If any players would like me to stay on Wednesday after school to throw also I would be glad to. If we go outside players need to wear some form of long sleeve shirt despite it feeling a little warmer than normal. Winter looks like she may be making her way back in on Thursday, however.
Congratulations to our basketball team as they completed a three game sweep this week defeating East Palestine, Southern and Liberty. The win over Southern puts us in sole place in the conference. Currently our record sits at 10-2. The wrestlers competed in the Tami Memorial Dual Tournament this past weekend at home with many fine performances.
We, along with volleyball program, will once again be holding a purse bingo event as our main fundraiser for the year. The past two have been well attended and a lot of fun for the participants and we want to continue to make this a “must attend” event on the calendar. This years event will be held Friday March 27th at the Links at Firestone. I will be sending out some more information in the coming weeks about the event.
We are starting to collect prizes to be raffled off. So far we have donations from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Lake Erie Monsters, Akron Rubberducks and Pittsburgh Childrens Museum. I expect many more to come in the next month. If anyone would like to donate for the raffle or a purse we will gladly accept. All money raised will go directly to both programs.
