Magee City league baseball play has come to an end.  Under the leadership of Ethan Harper and Jason Webb, the team might have started slow but battled to the end!

Coach Webb shared this interesting story with me:

We were down 9-2 and then a storm rolled in. They suspended play for 20 minutes. Our kids were being kids, sliding in the rain, literally “soaking it all in”.  I thought maybe I should make them be more disciplined right now, but then I remember being 9-10 year old during a rain delay. 

When we resumed play, we scored 9 runs to take the lead and win the game. Everyone was pumped up and it was a huge win for us 

Members of the team:
