The Glebe little league ball wrapped last night.
The league was very fortunate to have the excellent guidance from coach Larry, who is the head coach of the University of Ottawa squad. Larry was out twice a week for the past couple months to help guide the boys and girls through 45 mins of skill development before their games.
Alistair’s team (the appropriately named “Stingers”) was also fortunate to be guided by team head-coach, (and ace-on-the-mound) Tom Korski, who was always a pleasure to be around and who I will remember not only for his nightly rides to the park, but also for his funny, but effective down-home sayings, such as: “Get in the ready position boys, like you are a coiled spring or a jungled cat!”, or, my favorite, “Swing level, like you are sliding the bat across your ma’s kitchen table”.
