I wanted to send a note out to thank you all for such a great season of fall ball! I was so happy with the way the girls came together and played this fall. I hope that you all feel the same and that your daughter's enjoyed the season. If you have any feedback for the coaches, I am always open to constructive criticism so that I can continue to grow as a coach!
Fall State didn't end the way I had hoped - however, we asked the girls to go out and give it all they had on Sunday and I could not be more proud of how they played and how they did just that. If we could have gotten our bats going in that last game, I think it could have gone a different way. Side note: Somerset ended up beating Elk River for the championship.
It was my pleasure and honor to be able to coach your daughters this fall. They are a great group of kids and it makes me proud to know that these are the girls that represent Eden Prairie Fastpitch, they are why I love doing this so much. Thank you for making sure your kids were where they needed to be all season - supporting them at games, tournaments, sitting on a bucket for pitching practice, catching throws to 2nd base for catchers, all of the things that go in to making this a great experience for everyone.
A special shout out to Hugo, Ryan, Ben and Jim for being the best coaching crew. The extra time at practice, throwing batting practice, hitting ground balls/pop flys. It all means so much and I thank you all so much for doing this with me!
We'll see some of you soon at dome ball. But also remember EP Fastpitch will be holding clinics at the Activity Center starting in November as well - for pitchers/catchers and then also hitting/fielding. There will be more communication about those as we get closer.
Please let me know if you have any questions! If I don't see you this winter, I sure hope to see you in April!
Thanks so much!
