Spring Training Rolls On Around the Country

Despite snow in April and May, Spring Training continues in the Colorado Springs Snow Cap League. Early reports indicate the Hixson Brothers are hitting their stride as June approaches.

“We’ve gotten some good sessions in,” SLWAA President Geoff Hixson said. “Once we hit June, we are going to kick it up a notch. I can’t wait to get back to Illinois.”

Elsewhere, Spring Training has begun in the self-proclaimed center of the universe, Philo, Illinois. Front Office member Jeff Cain, Hall of Famer Spence Hasler and newcomer Luke Kirby have been conducting rigorous training sessions over the last several weeks.

As of today, only five wifflers have signed up for the 2010 event. Thanks to those that have sent in the items. Entry fees and RSVPs are due June 2nd.
