13U GRIZZLIES open the season in MARSHALL

13U - Michigan Avenue Warm Up @ Marshall - April 23-24

The 13U Grizzlies, 2016 edition, took on three very tough squads this weekend, and put our best effort out there.
The boys faced three #1 starters and had a little trouble getting the bats going. Some solid defense at times, some
good pitching efforts and encouraging attitudes (plus awesome weather) kept spirits high despite the losses.
Hoping for some healing to a couple ailing arms. Ice and rest, boys! Next tournament coming soon.
