I will still keep up with the Coaches Corners through June as we will be playing our summer ball season starting next week. There are a few notes I would like to mention about this past week:
Congratulations to our 2019 EOAC All-League Selections
- Chase Franken: 1st Team Pitcher
- Evan Kenneally: Honorable Mention
Spring Sports Awards Banquet
The Spring Sports Awards Banquet will take place Wednesday May 29th at 6:00 PM at the high school.
We had a great time at PNC Park on Tuesday. We arrived at 5:30 and were walked through the tunnels and onto the field to watch Colorado Rockies batting practice and stayed on the field until the game was about to start. Our picture was taken on the field as a team and we were on the scoreboard as we were introduced to the crowd. Our players got a chance to talk to some of the Rockies and Pirates players and coaches and we even got our picture with Rockies manager Bud Black on our way out of the tunnels. Overall, it was a very good experience for everyone. I want to thank Jennifer Hoschar for setting this up as we all had a lot of fun.
We will be holding a baseball summer league this June and early July. Players who are not playing on another summer league team are encouraged to play. The league will consist of 10 games against other local schools. Most games will be played at Firestone Park, but there will also be some traveling involved.
The current summer league schedule has been posted. We are currently at 8 games and looking to fill two more dates. You can access information about the summer league by clicking here
Unfortunately, we are unable to play at Canal Park this year. With three rain outs the Rubberducks do not have any more dates available for us to play. The scholarships given are still going to be honored and we will have a date set aside for us to play there next year. I have been sent the 500 tickets for the game June 5th so anyone who would like to purchase a ticket please let me know. Remember $2 of every ticket sold is going toward a scholarship that we have given out.

Thank you and as always Go Clippers!!
