I was hoping that this blog would be posted way before baseball season started, but winter staying a little longer that we are used to here in Texas caught me off guard. The boys of summer have already dusted off their cleats and are ready to take to the diamond. I took a visit to the Magnolia Baseball Association Ball Parks before the activity swings into action. The players have tried out, been drafted and practices have begun. Are you ready for some baseball? What a great way to be a part of the the great city of Magnolia , Texas.
This is a volunteer league so it may be time for you to put your hidden talents to work. All games for metro teams(league ball) are played on Magnolia fields. You do not have to drive all the way to Tomball, Conroe, etc. Their league program is and will always be the main focus of the Magnolia Baseball Association even though they offer a select team option. Magnolia Baseball Association offers Little League Baseball for all ages:

The pitching rubber and bases listed above were announced summer 2010. Unlike some of the other leagues around the Magnolia area the Magnolia Baseball Association has it’s weekday games at 6:30pm. They have taken the stance that the players need to be able to get to bed at a decent hour for school. All fields have batting cages for a pregame tune up or a practice pitch or two. It is a great league for your slugger to start his baseball career or to make some new friends on the diamond. Check out the Magnolia Baseball Association and PLAY BALL!!!!
This REALTOR’s Perspective:
Learning the values that teamwork teach at a young age is so important to the development of our society. The children that can “play nicely” with others grow into the adults that “play nicely” with others. Sportsmanship, working together often starts on the baseball field. We all take turns batting, catching the ball, throwing the ball, making the out, scoring the run and sometimes we play a position we don’t want to. Baseball is a classic game for metaphors and life lessons. We have to rise above our ONENESS and work as a team to succeed in baseball and in life. We always can use help once in a while. The pitcher throws the right pitch to cause a grounder. The ball blazes off the bat and takes a bad hop over the shortstops head rocketing into left field. The left fielder is backing up the shortstop, fields the ball , that is now slowed in speed dramatically. The runner is trying to stretch a stand up single into a sliding double. The throw to the second baseman is close, but the tag is on and the runner is OUT!!! Sometime, we have to back each other up, we have to work as a team to achieve the goal of the moment.. in this case….get this man out so we have only two more outs to go. Baby steps, small goals make up the ultimate vision…Winning the League Championship….or in your case buying or selling real estate so you can…..
LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST,
