Saturday April 01, 2017

Overall, it was a great weekend of baseball for the Stars. We played solid defense the entire weekend and our pitchers did a good job of throwing strikes and getting ahead of hitters. These two things are even more important this year with the IHSAA implementing the mandatory pitch count rule. At the plate, our hitters did an excellent job of being patient and waiting for their pitch. We scored 30 runs on 30 hits. As a staff, we were very pleased with how the team played in all areas; pitching, hitting, fielding, and base running. One of the keys to the success of the weekend was the electric dugout. Everyone was cheering on their teammates, on and off the field. Each player was in the game mentally, physically, and emotionally. It was a great thing to see. We are in it for one reason: The TEAM.

BNL Baseball Spring Youth Clinic Mother Nature cooperated for the first time in the last four years allowing the BNL Baseball Stars to host the annual free youth clinic outside on Stars Field. Over 80 youth baseball players attended the clinic. The current BNL Star players put the campers through drills including: hitting, infield play, outfield play, pitching, catching, and base running. Each attendee walked away with a door prize which included: autographed baseballs, baseball cards, batting gloves, t-shirts, hats, “Game-Day Experience” certificate, and free summer camp registrations. The RBI Club fed the campers and players lunch after the event. Several of them stayed around to watch the Red and Blue scrimmage. During the clinic, the parents of the BNL players were busy cleaning, raking, hanging signs, and completing other field improvements. Thanks to everyone that made this a great day for BNL Stars Baseball.

"I guess if you’re going to have to go to the loser's bracket consolation it makes it better if you can beat two real quality teams," said BNL coach Jeff Callahan.

"We have some tough teams left on the schedule and I told them we can go one of two ways: We either need to get the ship going in the right direction and start playing well and win some games, or it could get ugly.
