It All Comes Down To This!
The AA Orioles have played 20 games and earned 20 victories. Along the way, we've notched 142 hits, including 13 doubles, 7 triples and 2 home runs. We've taken 36 hits by the pitcher, and scored 236 runs. We've faced 562 batters, struck out 262 of them, got 171 batters out in three pitches or less, threw 22 1-2-3 innings, and gave up just 93 runs. We've caught line drives to the hot corner at third, made unassisted double plays, tagged runners out sliding into home plate, caught fly balls to the outfield, made diving catches from the mound and running throws from short stop, picked runners off at first base, and caught others attempting to steal second base.
But now, all of the hard work and all of the great play from this team will come down to just one last game. Your AA Orioles will be facing the Braves in the Championship Game on Wednesday at 5:30 PM on Wolfpack field at Morse Park.
We hope you'll be there to cheer your Orioles on to victory!
Update Regarding Today's Scrimmage
Well, as luck would have it, the postponement of yesterday's scrimmage to today didn't benefit us any; while we did not receive any rain today, the fields and diamonds have standing water so the League is keeping all fields closed.
While the scrimmage we were looking forward to playing is now cancelled, we would like to get the team together at Luttig today to distribute the uniforms and review Opening Day ceremonies...in the event the weather doesn't work against us for Saturday's events, too.
Please plan on being at the park at 5:00 to receive your child's uniform. We look forward to seeing you then.

Baseball Scrimmage Postponed
You have probably all guessed it, but the scrimmage for today has been cancelled. We have talked with the other Coach and we are now going to have it tomorrow at Luttig. Please have the players there at 4:30 as the scrimmage will begin at 5:00. I will be handing out uniform shirts and hats that night as well. Please remember if you have not paid yet it is $8.00
This is our last "practice" before our 1st game on Saturday. Please let me know if you cannot make it.
