So embark thirteen year old learned that back and started are now on on this collegiate seem to me about this players. That were on the original thirteen year old angels team. And we have about ten or eleven players that had joined during ice bowl soul a lot of the court did he'd. Have been playing together during ice me from across the city is Antonio. Ministry. Course last year we made championship. Round and it really learned a lot spent a lot of time on the other coaches. Better perennially here I'm of their lessons learned. And quite some of those currencies that the Latin beaten. I didn't and our league didn't and regional tournament. But NBC news called burn at large bid. I'd sort of the players. Make sure we are inadequate Russert because our we sort of fourteen players. Won out over four pitchers and the rest were in the utility. And now obvious that you cannot perform.

Couple wins in the yard below 11 earned run allowed in fifteen innings and then you have a a guy in Carolina named Jack was news news. Really one of those guys you love to have on your team he kind of he gets his uniform dirty. Absolutely. Brian Iraq that amid these difficult problem. We cure organization last year.
