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
