Our First Game Day

Today was our first game day. It was great! I didn't get to catch the first game, but heard it was wonderful. I did get to catch the second game. Yes, I skipped today's classes (with the permission of my boss of course). I couldn't stay away. I was able to hang out and play catch with a few of our players. Let me tell you what, I think we have a few naturals on the team. Samuel has quite an arm, and Justin can run like no body's business. In fact, I may skip running today after chasing him around. There was a lot of talent today out on the field. I can't wait to get to know each and every player. I think everyone had a good time today. I took a few pictures. I am going to try to have them on the blog today. If you have any pictures you would like to share, PLEASE do so.
Mark announced after the second game that starting next week, both games will be held at 9am instead of having one at 9am and one at 11am.
I am already looking forward to next week!

Our First Volunteer Meeting

Yesterday we had our first volunteer meeting. It was so nice to see everyone. We handed out volunteer t-shirts and a few of the players caps. We will be handing out the players t-shirts Saturday before the game.
At the meeting we had a few of the player's parents discuss their child's special needs. ( One of our players was a little disappointed that he wasn't getting to play that very day). One thing Mark suggested, if you know a particular player, try to pair up with him/her. They maybe more comfortable with someone they are familar with.
Many of our volunteers and their parents will be playing in the Rumble On The River softball tournament this weekend. This may leave us a little short on volunteers Saturday. Anyone who can help out, please be at the Pottsville Ball Fields at 9:00 am or 11:00am. The PAA has covered the concession stand for us. (Bless you Andrea)! This will allow us to use more of our volunteers on the field.
I am so excited that the first game is this weekend, but disappointed that I won't be there due to continuing education I have for my job. So PLEEAAASSE take pictures and email/call me with any stories/experiences you have this Saturday. I don't want to miss out!
A special thanks to Mullen's Team Sports for donating all of the volunteer t-shirts, Feltner's Athletes Corner for donating all of our players caps, and Sportscene for donating our players shirts. When you shop at their stores be sure to tell them how wonderful they are! We really appreciate them.

Have a fun this Saturday. And let me know everything !!!
