Baseball Brought Us Together

Last night, the entire Panther Organization, everyone who was a part of the Panthers 2016 season, joined together for the end of the year baseball banquet. Everyone who attended the banquet went in very dressy attire. The parents, players, coaches and girlfriends all looked great and ready to enjoy the rest of the night. First, once you came in you had to check-in with the list and then we all socialized for a good hour while eating plenty of appetizers. Then, the doors to the banquet room have oped and everyone took a seat with their clique or family. The announcer then came up to announce how the banquet will play out and congratulated everyone who participated in the 2016 season. After, everyone was served their dinner and we ate a video was presented that showed pictures and memories of the three teams this year. Later, the award ceremony had begun and many talented players were rewarded. Moreover, the seniors were given a tribute and everyone was very proud of what they done. The seniors had also slow danced with their mothers and it was very adorable according to the others. Overall, it was very special night for everyone and some people will leave, but will not be forgotten...

Panthers vs. Cougars ( A Game to Remember )

A win was exactly what Killian needed after dropping two games last week. They got just that beating district rival Palmetto 7-0. Cougars manager Angel Herrera is happy with the way his team came out and showed life on Tuesday. The Cougars got on the scoreboard early in the first when Eddy Arteaga drove one to deep into left for a double to drive in Freddy Zamora, who had double to start the inning off.The fifth and sixth were big innings for the Cougars, where they scored a total of five runs. Gabe Garcia scored Chris Garcia in the fifth with a double to left. Gabe Garcia and Alejandro Mosquera then scored the final two runs of the inning due to an infield error. Eddy Arteaga came up clutch in the sixth when he drove one down the left field line for a triple, driving in Chris Garcia and Kevin Castillo, who had gotten on thanks to a single and double. 

Palmetto did show some life in some of the innings. Aramis Toledo delivered a double in the third, Keaton Zargham shot one up the middle for a base hit in the sixth, but Killian’s pitching kept them in check the whole game. Panthers manager Danny Smith was very disappointed in the loss and hopes that his team can learn from this.

Baseball Banquet Closing In

The last event for Palmetto Panther baseball is right around the corner and everyone is very excited! The baseball banquet is a dinner for the coaches, players, and their families. This is for celebrating the great season the Panthers had and to congratulate the players that have become men to continue striving for greatness in their lives. There will be music, dancing, food, and the award ceremony as well. The players must be nervous about what will they recieve. Furthermore, there will a player/mother slow dance to appreciate all the moms have done for each player. Moreover, the players cannot wait to thank Buffy Heldt for all she has done for the organization and being an extra mother for each player. In all, this will the graduation ceremony for the players that have taken part of the Panther Baseball Organization.
