ASE Pee Wee Baseball: Welcome
This is a site for players, parents and fans of the ASE Pee Wee Baseball Team of Goldtrap/Gardner Boys & Girls Club in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. Our mission is to teach the kids solid baseball fundamentals that will enable them to improve their skills and enjoyment of the game. Although we will attempt to be competitive in all our games, our number one goal is for the kids to have fun, whether we win or lose. Our second goal is to develop an understanding of the importance of being a TEAM. We want them to know that we win as a team and we lose as a team. Hope you enjoy the site!

Our player of the week for week 5 of the season is EJ Zanders. He really came to life the last two weeks of the season and has played some good baseball. He went 5 for 7 at the plate this week, while hitting an inside the park home run and driving in three runs. He also played very well in the field, recording several put outs at 2nd base. He has really improved as the season has gone along. EJ is a wonderful kid and a joy to be around and coach. Great job EJ, we are very proud of you!
Not sure if it is the summer heat that has hit our kids or what, but they haven't been the same these last two games. We have had kids not wanting to play, asking to come out of the game and some not even wanting to bat. I know its been a long season and I think it is starting to get to some of them. We lost our 2nd straight game tonight for the first time since 2002. Yes, I'm a nerd, stat junkie. But that's a long time to go without losing back-to-back games, so I'm a little proud of that one. But bottom line is that we need to get these kids going again for these last few games and the end of season tourney.
I was proud of the way we fought back tonight after we were down 10-3. We battled back and made it a close ball game at 10-8. We just have to get our kids to give out the effort on defense. If we can do that, we can play with anyone. We will keep working and keep trying I promise you that!
Our player of the week for week 4 of the season is Meridian Chance. She had a good week at the plate for us this week. In our two games she went 5 for 5 at the plate, while scoring two runs. She is a upbeat young lady that is very coachable and fun to be around. Once I can get her to get that glove on the ground, she'll be just fine. I'm sure she's tired of hearing me say that. She just smiles and keeps on trying. Great job Meridian, we are very proud of you!
Our kids broke out the bats early and often in our game tonight versus Sharum's. We hit the ball well up and down the lineup. Sharum's did not have their regular pitcher at the game and their kids really struggled to hit the ball. Lane and Meridian got things started in the top of the 1st with back-to-back singles. Laiklen would force Lane out at 3rd base but Caine would pick him up with a triple down the right field line, scoring two runs. Parker would then single to score Caine and just like that we had a 3-0 lead.
Sharum did not score in their bottom half of the inning, so our bats went back to work in the top of the 2nd. EJ would reach on an infield single. Dean and Elijah would both groundout to 1st base. Lane would single to score EJ to give us a 4-0 lead. The bottom of the 2nd would be much like the 1st for Sharum's. They struggled to get any hits put together and we would lead 4-0 after two full innings of play. In the 3rd, Laiklen and Caine got the rally going again as Laiklen would double to left field and Caine singled him in for a 5-0 lead. Parker and Louie would both groundout to the 1st baseman, but Caine scored on Louie's groundout to put us up 6-0.
The final inning would see Sharum once again not score and we put up another couple of runs to make the final an 8-0 ASE win. The win moves us to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in league play. See you all at practice Wednesday night.
