The Season is Here

The spring season is about to begin and everyone is ready for it. Last Wednesday, we had the Dinner on the Diamond, which is an actual dinner with the team and our families on the field. The weather was terrible, but it was still enjoyable to bond and eat good food with each other. Today, the Baseball team wears their uniforms to represent themselves and because tomorrow marks the starting point of the season, the annual Blue & White Game. We are expecting a crowd of a thousand people to attend the event from our school and the whole Palmetto Bay community! This year is extra special because we are including a Miracle League game for the first time ever. This means kids with disabilities all over the community will have a chance to play baseball for their first time, which is very heartwarming. Then right after the Varsity will clash in a game against each other...this is exciting! Next, the Junior Varsity will play against each other right after and so forth. Finally, there will a huge barbeque during the game for all the hungry attendance to our field. This will be the perfect way to start the season right with our panther family. All eyes are on us this season so lets start off with a bang!

The Beginning

My name is Hector Vazquez; I am a new transfer here in Miami Palmetto Senior High. Baseball is my passion and I truly love the game. I came from Felix Varela, but I'm happy to call Palmetto my home now. I can see big things happening this year and I am totally excited for the baseball season this year. Our team is stacked with great players I can see lots of wins and a state championship this year. We have to keep working though, we need to bond, practice extremely hard, and become brother all the way through. I'm happy I am on this team and program. The Panthers Baseball program is well structured and organized. We have an amazing time in practices but, we get our work done. We have an outstanding coaching staff made up of, Coach Smith and Coach Steiner. Coach Smith is a tough, serious coach and has lots of information to give me as a pitcher because he was a great one back in the day. Coach Steiner is just the same but, he is way more loose and loves to crack jokes like a clown. Well the season is right around the corner and the team is pumped, the team is ready, and the team is PANTHER STRONG.
