Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all of the women who play such a vital role in each and everyone of our lives . Shelby and I hope your day was awesome and you were pampered to the hilt.

Shelby is sending out an email to all parents of The Sandlot but for those following us on this blog I wanted to remind everyone of our Outing on May 17th ( Tuesday ) at 5:15 at the Wake Forest Mens Baseball Game in Winston Salem . Our athletes are getting to run through the blow up tunnel the football team uses and stand with the Mens baseball team during the National Anthem . Parking and admission is free and we are trying to get as many people as we can to come out and support The Sandlot and the Wake Forest Mens Baseball program.

All of the athletes have been working very hard last week on fielding and it really showed yesterday during the games. I am extremely proud of everyone for their dedication and love of the game . At the beginning of our games the athletes line up on the baselines and we say a prayer before we play . Yesterday was a bit different and wonderful thing to see . All the athletes lined up with their mothers and grandmothers behind them. Once everyone was lined up they were asked to turn around and hug their moms and grandmothers and then a prayer was said . The Sandlot is a FAMILY league and seeing these wonderful women with thier little ones was a memory I will always remember .

Again , Happy Mothers Day and may God continue to bless you all as yall have blessed us daily.

Coach Mike
