We lost last night to Boulder Creek 7-4. Not one of NO. 1's better outings but that's baseball. All in all it was a fun season and now I can drift back into coaching retirement. I need a rest. LOL

Rats, sorry to hear that, but learning how to lose is just as important as learning how to win. A great season none-the-less.

Congrats to the players and coaches, most teams will never get a chance to experience what you did!

The double elimination format in your HS playoffs is pretty interesting. Here, one and done.

Congrats on beating three ranked teams in a row. Very noteworthy.

Tough break AZ. My regards to both you and No. 1. Tell him to rest that arm and get ready for the next step. Good things are sure to come . . .

Your boy will have lots of stories to tell his grandkids. I'm sure more stories are yet to come!

It was fun to follow along AZ. I hope my boys have some success athletically. You must be proud.

AZ....You know how closely we have shared in our son's baseball progression through the years. It has been one of my favorite things about this board. My son's competitive baseball days are now over....he even expresses little desire to play because of his college coach....that will probably change over time, in fact he told me last week he has decided to change his major to education and wants to get into coaching himself. :D Regardless of how all this plays out with our sons, if we have instilled in them a love and respect for the game, we have done at least that one fatherly skill correctly.

That is great Brad that your son wants to teach and coach. Lord knows we need more good ones. Congratulations. I have a couple of guys on our team that I told they should coach some day. It is great when you can give back to the game you love. That is the future of the game.
