As The Season Approaches
Submitted By Sue Knight on Sunday, January 15, 2017
Hello Corunna Minor Ball Parents/Coaches and Players,

I want to highlight a couple important things

*Excepting Coaching Applications for all Local League Teams as well

    * Registration dates and forms are up on the web page and start this week at MSC

    * The Executive is in the process of setting up some pre-season warm-ups for both boys and girls of all ages. Keep watching web page for this

    * The Executive is looking for one or two people to join our board to go out into our Great Community and ask for sponsorship's. Email me for more information

    * All Squirt U10 and up are getting pants this year

I am going to finish with a little blurb, just my thoughts for what they are worth.

I want all our kids in this organization to have FUN, TO LEARN THE GAME AND TO LEARN THE LIFE SKILLS ASSOCIATED WITH THE GAME.

Baseball teaches our children so much more then just the sport itself. It teaches them team work, sportsmanship, builds confidence, teaches respect, the elements of success and failures, setting and achieving goals, that success requires hard work, etc.

So parents/coaches and players, when we encounter bad plays from the other team or bad calls from the umpires...NO ONE SHOULD yell or retaliate in response. That player or umpire is someone else’s child. They, like us, are not perfect. Let’s try and keep that in perspective in the heat of the game. Lets show the other teams how Corunna handles stressful situations.. RESPECTFULLY!

I saw a pretty awesome video last season, that hit the nail on the head with me. I will try and sum it up.

Take a second and think about this...

Baseball can be very rewarding, striking out a batter, great hits and amazing plays are all a part of this awesome sport, but with the highs, also come the lows. In this great game we have a bleacher full of fans cheering when you make a great play, but also the other teams fans cheering when you make a error or strike out. So we all need to teach our kids/players how to keep their chins up and go back out and try again. 

"Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game" Babe Ruth
