Nighthawks Finest Season

I thought this years time looked to be the finest Nighthawk team I have coached. The numbers prove it. Final record (excluding tomorrow) is 24-8. Thats a 75% winning percentage and is the best season since the start of the club.

Thought you'd like to know!

Nighthawks Take Another League Title

The Nighthawks have clinched the Connie Mack League title. Thats 10 league titles since T ball for those of you that have hung in there with me since the beginning. Thanks David Lee, David Wasser, and Tyler. Thats a pretty nice run.

Also thanks to all of you for the mini-celebration at the hotel to celebrate this milestone. Also thanks Karen, for the cake.

Nighthawks Finish 2nd at USSSA On Deck Sports U17 Tournament

In a field of 21 U17 teams, the Nighthawks pushed through pool play with a #6 seed to qualify for the championship single elimination tournament. After shutting out the 5th seeded team from Orland Park, then shutting out the #1 seeded team from Joliet, we finally fell to Moline in the championship match. Good weekend guys, and we played some of our finest ball in years.

I'll post the photos taken with "da coach" Mike Ditka when I receive them.
