It certainly has been a tale of two summers for the Sportsmanship Brigade. In 2012, the St. Louis area couldn’t buy a drop of water. Our grassy plains became unsightly, brown patches of dust. Fast forward to 2013 and communities all over are strengthening levee walls and seeking higher ground in some instances. St. Louis is the new Seattle. Rain has certainly been plentiful in the Gateway City.
As you may have guessed, this has led to numerous baseball and softball cancellations. Kids are a resilient bunch, though. If there’s a chance to play, they’ll gladly take it. Playing in the mud is nothing new for them anyway. It’s the adults that get all freaked out. This brings us to last Saturday morning when the Brigade took in a 5th grade softball matchup between St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and Immaculate Conception-Dardenne.
The following report was sent in to the Sports Commission by Brigade Captain Donovan Lucas:
