The continued development of these young players has been a great joy. These Falcons are showing great potential and a lot of heart. We will continue to get stronger during the winter months. Can't wait to see what the Spring Season will bring for this special group of kids.
Our season has come to an end but as we look back we can see how much we have grown and learned over the fall. We learned how to face adversity and how to stick together and overcome any obstacle placed in front of us. Our boys are starting to understand the game more and more as they play. We look forward to watching these Falcons come back and get ready for 2021—it’s going to be something special to watch.
The weather played an unwelcome role for the Navy team this fall with cancelled tournaments and incomplete games, but the team managed to make up for these scratches with some good scrimmages. The team has a steady core of players and with Coach Mike’s leadership, these Falcons have really been gelling on and off the field. These boys have been working hard and as the fall season comes to an end, we are raring to go for the Spring!
An overall good Fall season for 13U Columbia. We made visits to the championship and semi-finals in two of the four tournaments that they attended. There is much talent on this team and we can't wait to get them together for winter workouts.
A Fall season to learn lessons from. In Perfect Game tournaments, we have been competitive—losing one playoff game in extra innings, and twice drawing tough early games against the eventual tournament winner. In USABL, we rolled to the championship game, and came within one out of bringing it home. But these Falcons are resilient—the team is playing smarter and harder and learning to compete better in all these situations. As we enter winter workouts, the potential for these Falcons for next Spring is super high.
The 15U team participated in two college showcases in October, one in PA and one at Centenary University in NJ. This was a great opportunity to not only see higher-level pitching from the opposing teams (some were 17-18U!), but to show off our skills in front of college scouts for the first time. Halloween Turf Wars was mostly rained out, but we're not done yet—one last tournament at Baseball Heaven the weekend of 11/7. Go get that chip, 15s!
