Now that many of us have completed our mourning phase for our beloved Sox (damn those Astros!), its not too early to begin thinking about next year's baseball season. If you're receiving this, your son will be me, Jon Freni and Kevin MacLaughlan on the Atlanta Braves. We're excited about this group and think we have a very solid team.
The focus will be on the joy of the game, building friendships, and developing skills, both physical and mental. The game has something to teach us all, and over the course of the season, there are many teachable moments and for me, those are ones you remember. I've been coaching in Needham since 2014 and I've learned to try to keep the practices fun and fast paced. If any of you would like to help out in some way, even sporadically, please let me know.
We'll be starting up indoors in March at Sluggers Academy (no jackets required) in Medfield. The season runs from early April to mid-June. The pre-season practices are especially important for getting the rust off and coming together as a team, so I'd ask that you do your best to make as many as possible.
Thank you, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. My cell is 617 455-8570. Thank you and I look forward to meeing you all next spring.
