I watched the whole game and am really proud of our guys. But who in god's name thought those jerseys were OK? We look like a 10U team. Awful.

I'm not a fan of the uniforms either, but if the players like them, that's what's important.

Glad the guys are getting some wins. Wins are all that matter, but only 3 HRS on the year.

Given up 12.

I know Drue is playing down a level in DII, but he has 9 on the year. Wish someone would share why he left, with a year left to play DII.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!
