Two words: Fall Baseball

Looking forward to the weekend! The fall season is all about extra games, more repetitions and having lots of fun at the diamond. We are excited to play in the new Cannons Fall League, which features 10 teams in the High School Division, eight teams in the Middle School Division and nine teams in the 10-12U Division. The season continues through October with playoffs beginning Oct. 26. We realize the fall is a busy season and the boys are playing soccer, football and hopefully buckling down on their homework. Practices are optional. For games, however, please let us know ahead of time if you have another commitment and won't be playing that day. See you at the field, and, remember: "Be an athlete!"
