As we awoke at 7:00AM, the boys reflected on what they needed to accomplish for the day. They made their beds and headed off to the showers and noticed some pretty gloomy skies - indicative of rainy weather.
This did not dampen the boys spirits as they headed back to the barracks for their morning meeting - where we reviewed the plan for the day. At the meeting we discussed the possibility of weather delays and the need to come out with fire every time we had the opportunity.
The boys did not go to breakfast - opting instead for energy bars and more time in the batting cages pregame.
At 11:00AM, the boys were ready to take on the Maroons National Team from Michigan. This team went 1-1 on the first day. The Clutch was the visiting team in this game and came out swinging the stick. Jack Spero led the game off with a hard single to left field and then Jordan Walczykowski hit an opposite field tank to take the lead 2-0. At the end of the first inning, the boys were up 4-0.
