Saturday's Game

Usually during the week Cherokee County Parks and Recreation will prep the fields for us. This is not done for us on the weekend. This means you will have to help prep the field. You and the other coaches will need to move bases, line the field, and help groom trouble areas (such as batter box…) If you have the very first game 9 or 9.30am start
