Another thanks to our sponsors. Here are just a few…
If not for our amazing families and community the Sluggers Softball Team just doesn’t happen.
Abi, our youngest slugger, is our first player of the season to earn a green helmet for her batting. Abi had a great triple in our last game and also earned an RBI on that hit. That’s how a slugger gets a helmet. It’s not just about a hard hit. It’s about a hit that makes a big difference in the game.
As our season continues you will start to see a lot more green helmets on the field. The Sluggers will keep getting better with the bat and keep earning helmets but for now Abi is the only one. Not bad for a 6 year old.

Coach Shanor was very proud of that hit…
While most teams took photos on the Saturday of opening ceremonies the Sluggers couldn’t make that happen. (drama…)
Not really. We just couldn’t get all of our little green ducks in a row. As heartbreaking as it was, it has all worked itself out. We were able to get our photos done yesterday by the amazing Aj Roe (Photos By Aj). He was able to help us out and get the Sluggers some fantastic shots.
Aj is also involved in the team photos and sponsor posters for the Goddard High School Softball team.
I may be a bit bias to the subject matter but I think they look great.
If you are in the need for some team photos, senior pictures or have a wedding or other event coming up, you need to give Aj a call. Go checkout his site photosbyaj.com and take a look at what he can do. Thanks Aj.
We also managed to have our annual Sluggers Easter Egg Hunt. Now my photos aren’t as nice as Aj’s but I guess they’ll have to do.
Another RGSA Opening Day has come and gone. Saturday we had our opening ceremonies for this year’s spring season and everything went pretty much as usual. Our field was a rainbow of untarnished, unstained new uniforms.
The RGSA board and umpires were all ready and of course the bleachers were full of eager families.
There was one important person missing Saturday morning. For the first time in years, our umpire Sam Delgado was not on the field with us. Sam passed away not long ago and that left a huge hole in our league family. Much of Sam’s family and friends were present in his place.
They were there to not only throw out the first pitch but to help us dedicate one of our fields in Sam’s honor.
So, from now on, the field formerly known as “G” will be call “Sam Delgado Field”.
You can see the rest of our opening ceremony photos in our flickr gallery if you like.
We’ll leave the rest of this post with a just a few photos of Sam.
The umps are ready.
