Countdown to TOC Game (Jun 10/05)
A Season of Excellence.
The NWLL Red Sox finished the spring regular season with an 11-5 record. Throughout the season the team consistently demonstrated outstanding defense and clutch hitting. However, the Red Sox were known for their mental toughness accumulating a 7-3 record in ten one-run games. Also if you accumulate the runs we scored versus given up on all non one-run games we outscored our opponents by only one run. The Red Sox knew how to keep it close.
Pitching during the season was consistent and outstanding. With an average walks per game during the regular season of only 2.7 and strikeouts per game of 8.1, proving that the Red Sox pitching staff was deep and talented.
The team batting average was .333 making consistent hitting a trademark of the Red Sox. 8 players had batting averages of .300 or greater.
More importantly, and what the statistics don't show, was the chemistry the team developed during the season. Always loose before a game, the Red Sox showed they enjoyed having fun as much as playing well.
This year focused was placed on the "C's" of coaching. These are Confidence, Concentration, Communication, Class, and Character. I am most proud of the kids ability to display those characteristics. I am hopeful that when the kids are older they remember the C's to help guide them through anything life will throw their way.
Please congratulate the Red Sox for a season of excellence.
