Early Bird Recap

This past weekend proved to be a huge success for the RockIt Baseball family.  The Early Bird Brawl played host to over 125 teams Saturday and Sunday in their annual Spring Tournament.  Nine teams took the field representing RockIt Sports… and four of those teams found themselves hoisting up championship trophies on Sunday.  Director of Baseball, Drew Coker, gives much of the credit to off-season development programs, “There’s no doubt that our athletes came to play this weekend.  We knew they would be ready to compete.  Having all of our teams working hard to develop their skills through our winter program gave us a huge advantage.  It’s great to see all of their hard work translate into wins, especially this early.” 

With a combined record of 24-8-2 this past weekend, the proof is in the pudding and RockIt has definitely hit the ground running.  Many RockIt athletes enter tournament season in a comfortable rhythm with no cobwebs to be swept away or dust to be knocked off.  Director of Operations and Coach Austin Carpenter also views this as hard work paying off,  “This is a clear testament to our off-season preparation and our kids’ hunger to compete.”  It seems while most people waited until last Saturday to turn their clocks forward, some did so months ago!

Congratulations to all of our teams for their success last weekend.  Continue to: listen to instruction, respect the process, and work toward improvement every time you take the field and the winning will take care of itself.  We can’t wait to see what’s in store as teams continue to test their mettle going forward.   We would like to give a huge shout out to our 8U RockIt Blue, 12U RockIt Blue, 13U RockIt Black, and 14U RockIt Blue teams for their championship performances!
