Congratulations go out to all of you from Coach Eric and myself, all of our parents and your fellow Pride players. You guys will be playing in the neighborhood of 70 games this season between school and The Prides schedule.  Its a TON of baseball in WNY with our short season. I know all of you absolutely love this game - the next 5 months are going to be VERY busy for you guys - remember to prioritize things and budget your time wisely. I'm sure all of your school coaches join me in reminding you all that your school work comes FIRST!  Keep your grades up, study hard, and when its time to hit the field - get out there and enjoy every minute of it - play hard every single pitch and the rest will take care of itself. Always give 100%, play every game as if it were your last. I wish you all the very best this season and can not wait to see what the 12 of you do as a team together.

Pride's offense hits its stride in first scrimmage

The Pride's offense kicked off the season Saturday night at the Wehrle Golf Dome with an impressive 18 run showing. 15 hits, 6 of them for extra bases - with a team batting avg. of .517, and an on base % of .758 . We've got a few things to go over but a solid showing both offensively and defensively. Offensively, Lucas Potter went 2 for 2 and Dylan Fritz, Alex Harvey, Justin Wisniewski, and Matt O'Brien all went 2 for 3. On the defensive side of the ball, the pitchers stood out, consistantly pounding the strike zone all night long. Although each pitcher was only given an inning of work - as a staff, the Pride took down 9 batters in strike outs over 5 innings - Matt Shalloe getting 2 of them in a 1-2-3 3rd inning facing the heart of our oppenents lineup.
