On May 12th my wife and I hosted a bash at my home with all the coaches of the various high schools that have earned the right to play for the Florida High School State Baseball Championships.
The celebration is in honor of all the participants and coaches of the state tournament.
The games were awarded to the City of Sarasota and are played at Ed Smith Stadium (Spring Training Home of the Cincinnati Reds).
Pat Calhoun who is the leader at the Ed Smith Complex has done a phenomenal job in making it possible for Sarasota to be the host for this exciting sporting event. The week brings in added revenues to the area and it is really great to see the stars of tomorrow right here in my hometown.
