    THIS IS THE HOME OF THE THUNDERBIRDS

    HELLO THUNDERBIRDS!

    I HOPE THIS FINDS YOU ALL HEALTHY AND EXCITED TO BEGIN THE SCHOOL YEAR. I KNOW AND FEEL YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT AT A SPRING AND SUMMER WITHOUT BASEBALL. AT LEAST WE HAVE MLB ON TV, AND HOPEFULLY BE PLAYING AGAIN SOON. WE WILL BEGIN SOME "ZOOM" GET TOGETHERS BEGINING IN EARLY OCTOBER AS THE COACHING QUIET PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED INTO OCTOBER AND SOME HELP IN WHAT TO DO TO PREPARE FOR NEXT SEASON. WE WILL BE SENDING OUT A TEXT MESSAGE TO LET YOU KNOW THE DATE AND TIME, WE WILL TRY FOR DURING SAS OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER SCHOOL.

    IN THE MEAN TIME I HOPE YOU ALL ARE TAKING THIS TIME TO GET STRONGER AND FASTER AND HOPEFULLY HAVE NAVIGATED THE SUMMER SAFELY.

    • 1: NEVER BE OUTWORKED.

    2: DON'T FOCUS ON YOUR STATISTICS. FOCUS ON GETTING BETTER AND GOING AFTER THE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES.

    3:REMEMBER THAT BEING THE BIGGEST OR STRONGEST PLAYER ON THE FIELD DOESNT MAKE YOU A BETTER BASEBALL PLAYER.

    4:HAVE A PURPOSE EVERY PRACTICE. STOP GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS. MAKE SURE YOUR FOCUS ON THE AREAS THAT WILL MAKE YOU BETTER.

    5:STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE. REAL CHAMPIONS COMPETE AGAINST THEMSELVES.

    6:BE THANKFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY BASEBALL. REMEMBER IT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU GET TO DO, NOT SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DO.

    7: BE PATIENT. REALIZE IT TAKES TIME TO MAKE BIG IMPROVEMENTS.

    8: PLAY BASEBALL FOR YOURSELF. THINK ABOUT ALL THE THINGS YOU LOVE ABOUT BASEBALL.

    9: NEVER QUIT. IF YOU CANT WIN, THEN MAKE THE OTHER GUY TIRED. IF YOU ARENT THE STARTER, GET BETTER EACH DAY ANYWAY!

    10: KEEP THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE. FAITH, FAMILY AND ACADEMICS COME BEFORE BASEBALL. GOD DOESNT CARE HOW MANT CHAMPIONSHIPS YOU WIN. AND YOUR FAMILY WILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT.
