Summer Baseball Academy $189

        AGES:    6-12 years old (registration ends May 26th)
    STARTS:    June 4th (6 weeks), WEDNESDAY nights, 5:30-7:30
This is a 6 week long camp on WEDNESDAY nights.  Area high school coaches & baseball pros will run drills & scrimmages.  This academy gives the players an opportunity to work with knowledgeable coaches.  They will not only break down the HOW to do a specific skill, but the WHY.  Many young players look for short cuts - once they understand the WHY it makes the game easier.  We want to eliminate any of the bad habits before they start.
 



   Schedule sync -  There are 3 ways parents can view the schedule and their field locations.  A)  go to "Standings" tab and click their team name  B) go to the "Calendar" tab and select the date and see everything going on at the park that day   C) subscribe to your team.    Schedule Sync is where you can select your team name and click subscribe - and you are done.  All your team info will be sent to Outlook, any calendar program, or your phone.  This is an excellent way you can keep up with the team throughout the year.  Anything that changes on the master schedule is automatically updated on your calendar.   Go to this link http://www.thefarmleague.com/baseball/schedule-scores/ and in 2 clicks all games are on your device.   This is a very cool ap and you will like it.


    Twitter and Facebook - We use these aps to get information out quickly.   We will post rain outs, game info, and photos of teams here.  With twitter, set it up where the tweet is sent to your phone as a text. This way you will know immediately of a status change to the games.  EX: You are on a sales call in the galleria and the weather is fine there. However, raining in Klein.  You will get a tweet about the game.  This is a very fast mass texting system we use.   Facebook is meant for the kids and parents to use to highlight their players accomplishments.  Pass along any info and we will get it up.    I have attached a twitter how to guide which makes it very easy to create an account. Please make sure you have the TFL tweets go to your cell phone as a text.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Farm-League/292643040754221 ////  https://twitter.com/Thefarmleague

Latest news and information about the MLB.
  • The first-place Detroit Tigers reinforced the back end of their shaky bullpen Wednesday night, acquiring closer Joakim Soria from the Texas Rangers for pitching prospects Corey Knebel and Jake Thompson. The trade was completed during Texas' rain-shortened 2-1 loss to the New York Yankees. Soria said he was informed of the pending deal during the delay, and the Rangers announced the move after the game. By the time Soria spoke to reporters in the clubhouse, all his Rangers jerseys had been removed from his locker.


  • OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- What should have been a runaway win for the Oakland Athletics ended with questions and concerns.


  • Alex Cobb struck out 10 and drove in a run with his first major league hit, leading Tampa Bay to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night, the Rays' seventh straight win. The Rays have won 25 of their last 36 games and are 13-4 in July. Tampa Bay completed its road trip at 5-0 and its eight-game road winning streak ties the franchise record set twice. The loss was the third straight for the Cardinals.

Bringing Rec. Baseball BackBy Bill Ripken

Drill of the Month - Push Bun The push bunt, when combined with the element of surprise, can be a great way to catch a defense on its heels, to break out of a hitting slump, or to get a speedy runner on base to lead off an inning.
