It has not stopped raining.............we have made the decision to cancel all Friday games in an attempt to get Pragemann and Gaylord Fields dried out for the 74 games on the slate for Saturday.......we will be at Gaylord Fields later today if anyone is looking for me since they will take a lot of work for Saturday. We will do our best and post any updates here.

It is now finally time for the old Coach to retire. I have met some great young ladies, super assistant coaches and some helpful parents. It has been a thrill to be part of it from the beginning. But it's time for young people to get involved in coaching........My hope is that I left you all with some good life lessons.......I'll miss the competition but I'll see you all at the summer tournaments....Recent years have been difficult emotional times off the field and it's time for me to recharge in a different way. My garage will still be open for people who want to learn through lessons. I still enjoy teaching. I appreciate what all of you have contributed to this journey.


"Thanks for the Memories"

Ron Piazza, TRADITION Softball
