Team Mission Statement
The mission of the team is to have youth baseball players and coaches participate in a development program that emphasizes skill development, teamwork and fun in a physically and emotionally safe yet highly competitive playing environment.
Team Competition Level
For 2012 league play, we will compete at an appropriate level to provide a high level of “select” competition but also with the #1 goal as top priority, developing players to their fullest potential. For example, if we are in the bottom of the 7th inning and we face the decision of either trying to win the game only (which usually means pull the pitcher) or leave the pitcher in to get his work in and to allow him to experience such competitive situations, the decision will be to leave the pitcher in. It does not mean we do not want to win, but there is no way we can prepare all players to play at this level if we do not allow them to experience and work on these situations. You cannot simulate these types of situations in practice, no matter how much you attempt to.
