We are so very proud of the way in which our Bears players and coaches conduct themselves. Here is a nice note from the parents of an opposing team who witnessed great sportsmanship at an 11U game this week:
Dear Byron Youth Baseball Association,
I wanted to reach out to you regarding the Farmington vs Byron 11U AA Game last night (05/18) that took place in Byron. We are the parents of a Farmington player and Eric is an Assistant Coach on the team. We wanted to acknowledge and share the great sportsmanship that we experienced during the game. Our son, Henry was blessed with hitting his first over the fence Grand Slam. After the ball was brought back to the Pitcher, the Head Coach and the Pitcher stopped the game to make sure Henry received the game ball for his accomplishment. This was a pretty cool experience for Henry and one he will never forget! We would like to applaud the Pitcher and the Coach as we know it was not necessary, nor easy.
As parents, we know it is not always easy to give up that big hit or lose the big game, but the team of boys on the field last night held their heads high and didn't give up. Kudos to the Coaches and Parents of the 11U AA Byron Team for raising and guiding such fine young players! Their future is bright!
Congrats to the Byron 11U MBL team on their second place finish in the Richfield Classic Tournament this past weekend. Their finish earned them a bid into the MBT State Tournament in July. Outstanding job boys!
We look forward to providing your family excellent baseball experiences this summer.
