The AA Rockies made the playoffs this year, they lost their first game in a rain shortened affair on Sunday by a score of 5-3. Last night, a rare double header was scheduled so the pressure was on to win back to back. It didn’t quite work out that way…
They dropped an 8-3 decision ending the season. It was a good run and the first AA Rockies team that has made the playoffs in the three years that I have been club manager.
So, now the off-season officially starts for us. It is early in the summer for sure, but that is how it works in Alberta. Back in Ontario, we’d still be playing ball for another 6 weeks or so.
I have not decided if I will be coaching Fall Ball this year or not. I haven’t actually decided if I will continue on to next year at this point, although I am leaning towards returning. Decisions to be made for sure.
All that is left for this season will be wrap-up get-togethers with the players. I think the AAA team will be having a BBQ, not sure what the AA’s plan on doing.
All in all, it was a good season. I think everyone enjoyed it, haven’t gotten any complaints as yet, anyway.
Until next season…
