Hey Sandlotters , Been a little while since we have posted anything so I feel right now before Easter would be a great time . We are three weeks into our Spring 2014 season and as always Shelby and I are blessed beyond our means with the families who have signed up . I am so proud to announce another record number of athletes this season and just when I feel it cant get any better , it does .

I could spend the next eight hours typing for all the stories these past few weeks have brought but instead I send out an open invitation to all of yall who have not seen our program to come out and witness the love and joy of our families every single day that I am continued to be blessed to be a part of all the way from our tee ballers to our older athletes in kid pitch.

Every evening and on Saturday mornings become reflection for me out at The Sandlot to cherish all that happened the practice before and the games that will happen next and it is all because of God . We all as a combined family have taken a horse pasture and turned it into a place for everyone to come together to celebrate our young ones through baseball in a Christian setting. AWESOME.

During this Easter weekend I have asked all of our athletes to think about the meaning of Christ dying on the cross for our sins and also his rising , to be more like Christ everyday and to search out what more they can do for others . I also ask you , reading this, to do the same through thought and prayer and once God speaks to you to act on your feelings immediately and dont let it pass. What can we do MORE for others no matter how big or small ? A hug, smile, words of compassion, a favor before being asked, a need for another  - what ever it may be I am sure that at least ONE time a day God allows us to be in a position to shine his light. SHINE ON .

May you all have a wonderful Easter Weekend and See yall next week at The Sandlot .

Coach Mike

The Best Elementary Teacher in the Triad Competition

Ok everyone , I mentioned a competition last night on facebook and here it is .

Eric Gonzalez ( The One Project and Sandlot baseball IT guru ) has come up with an awesome app for electronic permission slips and I personally love the idea and am pleased to get the word out for him by letting yall know about " The Best Elementary Teacher in the Triad " Award .

All of us know how under appreciated all of our teachers are and especially this week after our elected officials have clearly shown how they feel about them . Well now Eric is asking all of us to do something about it for at least one teacher and the PTA of the school he or she works for .

You can go to the web address at the bottom and fill out your entry form for the best teacher in the Triad. The winning teacher will win a Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet ( $800.00 ) and the Winners PTA will win $500.00 . NOT BAD .

Please take the time to enter and let show our teachers how much we appreciate them .
