BC: 2011 Jewett City Minor League Champion

FC: Always play a game with somebody, never against them. Always win a game, never beat an opponent. - andrew bailey | JOSHUA JAMES LEONE JUNE 2011

1: He pulls on a helmet, picks up the bat, and walks to the plate, "gotta hit and that's that." The crowd starts to yell, the game's on the line, last inning, two outs, the score's nine to nine. Dad yells, "Go get it," but alone there he stands. Hero's are made in seconds such as this, but he's just a little boy, what if he should miss?? Years after the games ended and he's little no more, will be remember the outcome or even the score?? No he'll have forgotten if he was out, hit or a run, he'll only look back on his friends and the fun. So cheer this boy on, alone with his fate, help him remember with fondness this stand at the plate. Spend your time wisely and help in his quest to be a hitter with confidence and always do his best. And when the games over, this boy can stand tall for you've helped him prepare to give it his all!! Inside the front cover of the book, You Can Teach Hitting, by Dusty Baker

7: THE PATH TO THE DUGOUT by Rob Vogt Right-handers are power pitchers. They come from Texas, raised on beef and christened with names like Nolan and Roger. Left-handers are crafty southpaws. No one knows exactly where they come from, but they do strange things in the clubhouse, like reading books in front of their lockers. Right-handers pitch until their arms fall off, or until they can no longer make it out of the seventh inning without assistance from a sub-species known as a relief pitcher. Left-handers pitch into their early forties, or until they are offered jobs in the broadcast booth. Right-handers trow 95-mph fastballs at disrespectful, plate-hugging batters, the baseballs connecting with a painful thud, their seams leaving their, red bite marks on hitters' barely-covered flesh. Left-handers nibble around the plate, Lulling batters to sleep, luring umpires into expanded strike zones. Right-handers storm off th the mound at the end of an inning, pumping their fists - cursing, spitting, glaring. Left-handers curlicue called strike threes around the outside corner and walk off the field quietly, their eyes focused on the path to the dugout and nothing more.

8: Baseball's future? Bigger and bigger, better and better! No question about it, it's the greatest game there is. -Ted Williams

9: Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world. - Babe Ruth

11: WINNERS ARE TOO BUSY TO BE SAD, TOO POSITIVE TO BE DOUBTFUL, TOO OPTIMISTIC TO BE FEARFUL AND TOO DETERMINED TO BE DEFEATED.- AUTHOR-UNKNOWN

13: THERE'S NOTHING MORE AMERICAN THAN BASEBALL

17: Everyday is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's successes or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game everyday, and that's the way baseball is. - Bob Fuller

18: Relaxing After Winning The Championship Game - Josh Leone | June

19: He threw the ball and he's outta there! | Baseball is where boys practice being boys and men practice being boys, and they get real good at it. Mary Cecile Leary
