To soccer, softball and baseball youth league coaches and organizers:
As indicated elsewhere on this site, Kirk Stewart (and others) will be providing photos and information occasionally from the action at your respective parks. And, like the photo essay below, they figure to be fun.
But we'd like to offer you more exposure on the site by inviting you to submit team photos, action shots, information about your team, its players and its games. You can send information like that to either Kirk at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com. Regarding photos, they should be in focus and please identify those in the photo. Write-ups will be subject to editing. And if you send in a game report, please provide information and names from both teams. Game reports should primarily be scoring summaries and/or stats. Game-turning highlights can also be included.
For softball and baseball, if you have someone that keeps a scorebook well, you could send me the scorebook from a game and I can write it up from that. Please include rosters from both teams (or the full names of the players from both teams and their numbers on the scoresheet) and a phone number for me to call if I have questions.
By the way, the key thing about scoring is often judging what is a hit and what is an error. An error is charged on a play that the fielder should've made with routine effort. (That's where the judgement comes in.) The scorer's handbook actually includes the line: "give the hitter the benefit of the doubt."
It also helps to show who drove in runs as well as who scored them.
We want BryantDaily.com to be a place where youth sports can be celebrated. It's at your service.

Community events and information about classroom and club events at the schools are also welcome here too, including photos. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org

Contrary to a report in the Murfreesboro newspaper, the Bryant Lady Hornets and a few of the other softball teams at the Southern Lady Warrior Classic over the weekend got to play more games after Thursday despite heavy rains. The Lady Hornets finished 3-2 in their games there.
