Congratulations to the @Lightning14uBlack girls for bringing home the win in the USSSA 2018 KEEP CALM & PLAY SOFTBALL tourney!!
While Sunday was a washout, the girls dominating performance on Saturday resulted in a 1st place finish. Their bats were on fire with everyone contributing. Overall, offensively, the girls had 24 plate appearances with 18 hits and only 4 strikeouts as well as our first HR of the season by Emily B which was a 2 run blast to centerfield.
Defensively, our pitchers delivered 13 strikeouts over 9 innings and were backed up with strong fielding allowing only 6 hits over 2 games.
Great start to the season, Ladies!! Let’s keep it rolling as we prepare for Happy Valley Explosion in May and congratulations on your World Series qualifier!
@Lightning14uBlack would like to congratulate Coach Burleson on his recent Hitting Instructor Certification!!
The Epstein Hitting Certification Program is a high level training for both baseball and softball. Jake is often referred to as the top hitting instructor in the entire country. His ability to understand the swing on a biophysical level and then translate that data in an easy to learn, understandable teaching system is what makes his results so extraordinary. Jake currently consults with 3 MLB organizations, has trained over 250 professional baseball players in addition to his countless number of NCAA baseball and softball stars.
