Overcoming adversity is the secret of champions. Through having the right mindset, not making excuses or taking "no" for an answer, having faith, and being energized by success, you can overcome anything that life has to throw at you.
After the game instead of shaking hands everyone will do this.
This is a story of what transpired during our Town & Country state runs. It begins in 2016 at Flora Indiana, when the 2016 team played in the state finals there, Coach Steve Zellmer stated that all participants should get a banner, (they do not). Steve wanted me to look into getting us one, which I did somewhat. Fast forward to 2019, another State Final run, this time in Frankton Indiana. Low and behold Steve brought up the banner issue again (he is persistent). We checked with the T&C officials they said it was a good idea, but isn’t done. In the fall of 2019 adding in Joe Stiles, Kevin Hickman, Jeff Zellmer and of course Steve we decided to honor those teams along with the 10U team from 2015 (State Finals participant), and the 2016 team (Semi-State runner up). We found a vendor willing to this for us (Creative Vinyl Signs, Inc.Dowagiac, MI), we ordered them, and they were hung on Friday May 1 at the major league diamond.
Your thanks need to be sent to Joe Stiles, and of course Coach Steve.
