941, 

All 4 of our teams are scheduled to compete in the USSSA Sarasota Global World Series from Jun 22-27 to end our summer season.    This tournament has a 5 game guarantee with a possibility of 7 games if we were to win the tournament.     Opening Ceremonies and skills competitions take place on Tuesday night with Games starting Wednesday morning.   

 

With the additional games/days, increase in gate fees, and umpire fees, the tournament cost is much higher than our usual tournaments that have been budgeted for.    

 

In order to compete in this tournament, we will need to collect an additional supplemental $70 fee from all participants to cover the gate fees and additional umpire fees.  (Gate fees will cover all attendees for ALL game, opening ceremonies, and skills competition and is discounted from what they would take if they ran the gate)   

 

These fees paid in checks made payable to:  941 Diamond Academy and should be dropped off during the BP & Bullpen sessions on Wed & Thursday.     This will confirm your spot on the team for the tournament.   

 

USSSA World Series Attendance:   

Please communicate if you CANNOT attend this tournament so we can make plans for guest players, etc.   

 

USSSA T Shirts:  

We must preorder T shirts for teams for those players that would like one.   the t shirts have the USSSA World series logo on the front and all teams on the back .   Please let me know how many and what sizes you would like (if any).

All, 

With the end of the Babe Ruth Regular season, we are still trying to confirm field availability for practices.    At this time, it has not been confirmed.   

 

Our goal is to try to practice Tuesday as planned,  but I will update you tomorrow .   If we cannot,  we will make alternate plans later in the week.   

 

As far as Bullpens and BP,  we are on the same schedule as last week.    And plan on being consistent with it through the end of the summer season. 

 

 

Both the Granite and Grey teams have tournaments this upcoming weekend.   The Granite team will be in Plant City and the Grey team will be in Port Charlotte.  Lets hope for drier weather this weekend.    

 

I will send out tournament recaps and hopefully a more concrete schedule tomorrow.

The 941 Grey Sox finished 1-1 on the day defeating the Mayhem 10-6 to finish 4th after pool play.   6 different players drove in runs as the Sun Sox scored 5 runs in the top of the 5th inning to break a 5-5 tie.   It was a true team effort with solid defense, strong pitching and timely hitting.

The 941 Diamond Academy Sun Sox Grey will play a rematch with the Mayhem @ 8:30 AM at GT Bray Park.

Granite Team, 

Our upcoming Perfect Game tournament scheduled for 6/4-6/6 is right around the corner.   I wanted to get some information out to you soonest.   

 

The Games would be played at the Jetblue stadium complex 

Teams would need to be prepared to play at 8:00 AM Friday Morning.   there is a 3 game guarantee,  and I believe it is $25 per person (over 14) for the weekend pass for spectators or $10 per spectator for daily pass.   

 

 I would like your feedback on a couple of issues:

Teams are required to book their rooms through perfect game.   we can get a room block, but I need to know how many families are planning on staying in fort myers and if so,  for how many nights? 

  1. Please respond back to this email and let me know if you will be getting a Hotel Room for Thursday, Friday  & Saturday night?   or just 2 nights? or commuting back and forth?  

Room blocks are in the Holiday Inn airport / town center which is 10 min from the park and walking distance from the town center shops and restaurants, or the Embassy Suites (13 minutes away and a short drive from shops & restaurants    both hotels are right around $110 per night.   

Please reply back at your earliest convenience.

All, 

 

Here are our summer hitting groups.   Note:  if days/times do not work, we can be flexible,  but just need a heads up to reserve the cage.  Note:  The cage day &  times listed below will be kept blocked for our 941 Summer program and you will not have to reserve them separately.   In addition to these hitting groups, all players are encouraged to come in to 941 Diamond Academy at other times to get their work in on their own.    They will just need to reserve their cage/bullpen times using the online reservation system.  

 

If you would like your player to participate in these hitting groups, but did not respond,  please let me know and we will get him added in.

6/1/2021

All, 

The Green & Gold Teams played in the Port Charlotte Open Tournament this past week.   Both teams put in a good showing finishing tied for 3rd place.    Both teams won their first game on Sunday with the Gold Sox defeating the Naples Storm 8-4 and the Green Sox taking it to the Crucibles 14-1.    Both teams played hard in the 2nd game before falling in the semifinals.   The Gold team swung the bats well most of the weekend and had some gutsy pitching performances.   While the Green team, after a tough Saturday, came out with passion and energy and after defeating the Crucibiles 14-1, gave a very good SW Florida Platinum Elite team everything they could handle with  great defense and gutsy pitching.    Congrats to both teams for a strong showing.   And with the results of this weekend's tournament, that makes all 4 teams at 941 World Series Qualified).
