2010 Resolution Revolution

Baseball players and parents are great. We didn't expect much response from thisyet we received 59 e-mails from our fans. Some were general, some were very specific and all involved improvement over the past year. Thanks to all that responded. Most were very similar, so we just printed just one of each type of response. We will just print the initials and state of each that responded per the request of many who e-mailed us. We will start with the players, then the parents.


1. I am going to work harder, smarter and improve my speed in 2010...A.K. in West Virginia

2. My resolution is to be the first at practice every day and the last to leave...J.M. in Florida

3. I am going to have a lead by example attitude towards my teammates and coach...K.J. in California

4. I want to be the leader of my team and lead by example by working harder and hustling...P.L. in California

5. It's my senior year and I want to remember my friends and coaches by working extra hard and making this the most fun baseball year ever...T.M. in Texas

6. I am going to break the schools all time hit career record this year...T.Y. Georgia

7. The batting title is a big deal in my league and this year it's mine...F.G in Georgia

8. My (high school)won league last year and is returning almost our whole team. Repeat, Repeat! P.I. in New Jersey

9. Pray that we don't have to play in any games in the snow. That really (insert word here) J.R. in New York

2. My God it's already his senior year! We are going to have fun and never lose touch with the team parents. E.G. in Missouri

3. My husband and I have vowed to be positive with our son no matter what he does in a game, because it's only a game...L.L. in Alabama
