April is under way.  Easter is long gone.  That only means one thing.  Spring Training.  Thank you to Leicester Blue Sox for hosting two great games of baseball.  Both teams showed up and put out two great sides.  Whilst the Great British weather took a small part in the day, spirits remained high.  The banter bus was parked and the innings came thick and fast.

It was great to see smiling faces.  Hear the jokes and chuckles.  Leicester, rebuilding from winter loses, showed great character in pushing their crew in preparation for a hard season ahead.  We, however, forged ahead after a slow start putting runs on top of runs with a solid offense.  Defensively holding the opposition with errorless fielding, good communication and great pitching.

Mantra for the day "keep your balls clean!".
