E.T.S.B. Visitors


July 14, 2015 – 10:00 AM

Coach Cardenas Head a Coach at SFA has extended an offer to our organization to have a private workout with him and his staff for recruiting purposes. This is of no cost to you and is a good offer. I would like to have ALL of our players to be in attendance. Start at 10am Tuesday the 14th.

18U UT-Tyler Game times, Locations and Hotel Info

Game times for this weekend and location is posted below. Our squad will only play one game at Frankston HS and we have no games Friday. Only one night to spend on the road. Again, I an sorry about the schedule and venue change and we will find out what happened with SFA. For more info on SFA, please read the article below. AS always the directions and location of each field can be found on our "Directions" Section on the left hand side of this Main Page. Frankston HS, if driving directly from home to the field, is best accessed by turning left on HWY 175 out of Jacksonville on the North side of town. After the game you can go into Tyler where the rest of the Tourney is located at UT-Tyler for our team. Each team is playing at Frankston at least once and we are one of those who are not being asked to play on Friday as well. Our Houston folks will find it much easier to go to Tyler and Frankston by driving to Lufkin first. Should you get lost or need assistance on directions, please call Ray Clary at 936-414-1381.

Direct line for game info is through Rodney McCray at 313-574-3131

Some Quotes to live by and think on

"The first time you quit it's hard. The second time it gets easier. The third time, you don't even have to think about it"

" I don't think it's about who you play, I think it's about who you are."

"Process guarantees success. A good proces, guarantees good results."

It is important that pitchers know the following:

1. If you want to start and pitch on weekends you MUST be able to throw strikes.

2. You must get your arm in shape guys. Long toss and Bullpen work and are a must for a pitcher to be effective

3. Be able to repeat a good delivery from pitch to pitch

4. Know when to back up the bases and where to be

5. Be ready when your time is called!!!!
