Well, it looks like I will be coaching the Major Bantams this summer. Major Bantam’s are players turning 15 this year. I will get approved (or not) this coming Sunday. We’ll play in the Boys of Summer league which is based out of Western New York.
I received an email tonight from a possible coach. We are going to meet tomorrow to go over the season and see if we might be able to work together. I think that I am pretty easy to get along with on the baseball field. At least a possible coaching staff is falling into place. I am told that there is a possible pitching coach as well – that would be great. I could then pick up a father to assist and all would be well.
It is too bad that DB doesn’t want to coach this summer – I do enjoy coaching with him but I don’t think he likes me being the boss – our styles are slightly different. Oh well…
So, I guess I will see tomorrow night and then wait for Sunday. If I am given the team it’ll be a lot of work from that point on. I have to book tournaments, black out dates for the BOS league and what-not. It’ll only be a few short weeks before we will be able to get outside on some stone diamonds and 5 weeks until we get on our main diamond. So, that means that the season starts in 7 or 8 weeks. That time will fly by I am sure.
Hopefully this season will run a bit smoother than last year did. Not that it was a bad season mind you, it just didn’t go quite as I had hoped. With Major Bantam I can at least schedule practices before games so the turnout should be WAY better than what I had last season.
Wish me luck.
