Successful season for the Jr. Rex

The Terre Haute Jr. Rex recently completed another successful season of travel baseball. The opportunity for these fine young men would not have been possible without the continued support of Roland Shelton and Casey DeGroote of The Terre Haute Rex. The highlight of our summer was competing in The Stars and Stripes Tourney at The Cal Ripken Experience in Aberdeen, Md.

The Jr. Rex concluded their season recently by hosting The Battle On The Bash at Bob Warn Field. There are many people to thank who made this event possible. Again, thanks to Casey DeGroote for his support that allowed The Jr. Rex to host at a premier facility, which in turn helped fund our travel expenses.

Thanks to Dave Patterson of The Convention & Visitor’s Bureau for providing a pizza party for all teams at The Rex vs. Quincy Gems on Friday night. And to Rob Lundstrom and Allison Morris of The Copper Bar for their cooperation and help with our concessions stand during our tourney.

Also a big thank you to Sean Mang and staff of Indiana State University for their work on the field throughout the summer and especially during our tourney. All players were elated to play on a first-class facility for The Battle On The Bash.

Thank you to the umpiring crew of Don Corey, Matt Joyal, Jerry Keyes, Chuck Lindner and Barry Nicoson for braving the nearly unbearable heat.

We had so many nice comments from coaches and parents of the hospitality of the entire tournament, including Sycamore Stadium, as well as local restaurants and motels. These all combined to give a positive image for the entire community of Terre Haute.

And lastly, a special thank you to all The Jr. Rex parents for your help with concessions, gate, T-shirts, scoreboard and overall park clean up. Without your commitment to The Jr. Rex, such a great and memorable year would not have been possible.
