I cancelled team practice today because of the nasty weather today. We'll try again on Thursday. I'm going to try to find an indoor batting cage that we can use as a backup in case the weather doesn't cooperate then.
We're back down to 11 players. Nia, the one girl on the team, decided to play in a YMCA league instead. She'll be with smaller kids who are also fairly new to playing baseball, which is a better fit for her. Having 11 kids will make it easier to ensure everyone plays, but it means we have less slack if there are no-shows. I don't know what the forfeit rule is, and I hope I don't have to find out.
I've gotten some feedback from parents that the kids are excited about playing. I'm glad I made a good first impression. I hope to build on their enthusiasm.
I'm supposed to pick up some candy from a league volunteer tomorrow. Apparently, candy sales are part of how the league pays for itself. A couple of the parents are signed up to do the selling, which is fine by me because that's something I've never been comfortable with. Better anyone else than me.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 25, 2003 to Just call me Coach | TrackBack
