It has been quite some time since I posted anything on my blog. I haven't really enjoyed the last few months I suppose, baseball has been a drag and so has work.
I have coached baseball teams that haven't performed well before, that doesn't bother me. The players are trying their best (I am sure), we just haven't been overly successful. Mind you, we have played in a league that we really aren't ready for. The teams that we have played are "elite" level clubs and we aren't at that level. All of that is OK, as I've said, I've coached teams like that before. I am not sure what the difference was this year. It has been more of a chore than anything really to go out and go through the motions. That's too bad, I used to really enjoy baseball.
Well, it has been over two months since I posted and most of the baseball season has come and gone. We have done fairly well in the NDBA league, lost 4 times to the ND Majors and otherwise have dominated the other teams in the league. We have 1 tie (against Port Colborne) and 12 wins (or so). We have a few make-up games that we likely won't make up and play-offs start in a few short weeks.
We have been to only one tournament thus far – in Hamilton. It was all right, the boys were outplayed though. We were able to defeat Georgetown which is a first for any team that I have coached. I have ALWAYS lost to teams from Georgetown until this year – there is a positive note I guess. We are in a tournament this weekend as well, in Niagara Falls. We have the CNE coming up in August and then the A OBA's over Labour Day Weekend. That'll wrap it up and will likely wrap up my time as a coach for the time being anyway. I am sure that I will come back to it at some point but who knows …
Work has been work – it has just been a bit boring is all. Nothing more to say there.
I will try to post more regularly. Out.
