Spartans Offseason Training Program


Sacrifice what you are for what you will become...

The Spartans offseason training program will be held weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:00 pm at Gold's Gym in Plano (NE Quadrant of Park & Preston) beginning December 10, 2013 and continuing until March 28, 2014 (off days are December 24 & January 31).  The cost is $15/session or a special rate of $275 for the entire offseason program (includes an offseason t-shirt) - a $50 savings.

7U Spartans kick off the season with a victory!

Good afternoon all!

We started off a little slow in the first two innings, but we kicked up a notch starting in the 3rd inning!

We had 3 of our Spartans go 3 for 3 at the plate last night!

Quinton, Carson and Caelen!

Quinton had 1 single and 2 doubles.

Caelen had 2 singles and a triple.

Carson had 2 singles and a double and led the team in RBI's with 4.

 

Jackson and Derek each went 2 for 3.

Jackson had a single and a double.

Derek had 2 singles.

Everyone else went 1 for 3!

Bareden Jallo recorded a double. This is a little deceptive in that he hit in our 5th run that inning, and the umpires stopped him at 2nd. It could have been a triple, or possibly even a homerun.

 

We also made some great plays in the field!

Ethan made a great throw from Pitcher to 1st to record the first put out of the game.

Caelen was a beast at 1st Base making several outs.

Carson made a nice play on a grounder at Short Stop and tagged the runner trying to head to 3rd!

The boys made good throws from the outfield, and all of our Catchers did a great job behind the plate!

Congrats to the boys on a good First win!

Have a great day!

Thanks!

11U Spartans Red Defeat Sun Devils 28-5 to Kickoff the Spring 2013 Season!

The 11U Red Spartans came out ready to play on Monday night.  The bats were hot and the defense was much improved.  The boys all hit well with Zach and Nate hitting inside the park home runs, Carstens and Connor with triples, and Grant with a deep left field double!  The defense had only a handful of errors.  The pitchers and catchers did an excellent job and interpreting pitch calls and executing their roles. It was a great way to start the FBSA Spring Season.  We have practice on Wednesday at Bacchus 4 at 7:30 and a tournament at Triple Creek this weekend.  Let's play ball!

Who inspires you? These Dodgers players inspired me.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu won over a lot of fans by playing catch with a kid--"Deuce"--in the stands during batting practice before a Dodger game this week. "Deuce" actually has a pretty good arm himself. See it here: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2013/05/15/Dodgers-Making-Fans-Hyun-Jin-Ryu-Matt-Kemp

Just over a week ago, Dodger outfielder Matt Kemp literally took the uniform off his back and gave it to a fan--along with his cap and cleats--who is suffering from terminal cancer. See it here:
