KIND, a proud sponsor of the Blaine Area Little League, will recognize a KIND Player of the Week now through the end of the season.
Open to B.A.L.L. players of all ages, coaches have been asked to nominate players who demonstrate the PlayKIND Rules each week. The KIND Player of the Week will be posted here, and will receive a gift from KIND.
Ask your coach for details.
Thanks to all who signed up for pitcher development training with Erik Lovdahl. We have one more session for anyone who has signed up but was unable to get to both maintenance sessions. Join us and learn off season drills to keep your skills fresh.
Thursday, 8/11 at 8 a.m.
Owen Hasling, 5/6 Rafters
Owen started out the season shy and reserved and by the end he was friends with everyone and having a blast with his team. His coach says he, "has the determination that every great athlete should have and he is fun to watch.” Hasling not only improved his game, he boosted team morale when he was on the bench. “When it was his turn to sit I could hear him cheering his teammates on.” Congratulations, Owen, you are the Play KIND Player of the Week!
Collin Guy, 5/6 Rox
Collin has continually shown great sportsmanship as a B.A.L.L. player. His coaches say, “Not only does he love to play, he comes and is a great team supporter. Last week he was helping another player and using encouraging words to help the other teamate improve. Collin has been an awesome player on the Rox team and we hope he continues playing baseball in the future.” Congratulations, Collin. You are the PlayKind Player of the Week!
Jack Harris, 5/6 Rafters
Jack's coach nominated him for his good sportsmanship, and his determination to be a good baseball player. "He doesn't give up no matter what and he is extremely kind to all of his teammates," his coach said. "He always has that adorable smile... unless he's batting then he gets serious." Congratulations, Jack Harris. You are the PlayKIND Player of the Week!
