Curve Jr Family in need of HELP!!!

As I’ve told many people, our program is so much more than just baseball, it is like a family.
We have a family who is in need of help.  Rodney and Terri Shultz grandson, 15u player Rodney Shultz nephew, is in need of an infusion that will be done outside of the United States.
His name is Nathan Kost. He and his twin brother, Owen were born 3 months early.  Owen and Nathan spent the first 45 days of their life at Geisinger’s Neonatal Intensive Care unit and at 6 months Nathan was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.  The treatment will cost $15,800.00 and that does not include travel to or from Panama.
There is a go fund me website set up for Nathan for anyone who would like to make a donation.

Please consider making a donation and keep all in your prayers!!!

2017 Curve Jr Season - One of the Best Ever!!!

The 2017 Curve Jr season will go down as one of the best ever.  Not just the wins but also in the
development and growth areas as well.  The senior class has been fun to watch since they were 13 years of age and too see them now before heading to their college careers unfold was just plain fun.
Five of those players made a major contribution in winning the state championship with their High School team.  This made it two years in a row that the Curve Jrs had 6 players on a high school
state championship team. Another high school team with 10 Curve Jrs won their 3rd District
Championship in a row.  All the other seniors made huge impacts on their teams as well
(I might be biased but, I think we are doing a lot of things right)
This class of seniors will be hard to replace but all the younger Curve Jrs showed this summer
that they just might be next to make major impacts on the ballfield.  Every age group
showed great competitiveness and are willing to work hard and learn by being coachable.
I do not remember any other season where there was absolutely no issues with attitudes.
What a FUN group it is to be with and coach at every age level.
I can’t wait for next year!!!
Thank you to all players, coaches, parents for making this the best year ever in program history!!!
Thank you to all the coaches or parents who helped in any way, throwing bp at practice or before games, just willing to help in any way.
Thank you to all the families who support their kids, grandkids, or just friends for making this
a great family atmosphere to be around at and in between games laughing and enjoying everyone.
This was truly the best season ever on every aspect in program history!!!

14u n 15-16u Teams WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!

Congratulations to both teams this past weekend on winning the championship!!!

The 14u team played great baseball all weekend in winning their first wood bat tournament.
They have been so close all year making great improvements in their development and it was fun to watch them get it done this past weekend. Solid pitching, solid defense, and timely hits was present.
Nick Coudriet pitched a complete semi final game winning 2-0 while Evan Shale pitched a complete
Championship game winning 1-0.  The 14u Curve Jrs only gave up 3 runs in 5 games while their bats produced 18 runs in winning the championship!

The 15-16u also had great pitching all weekend.  Garret Holzapfel, Dylan Maddox, Luca
Capperelli, Bryce Helmer, Brendan Grazier, Matt Allison and Bryce Helmer all pitched outstanding leading the Curve Jrs into the championship game.  From there Justin Harr pitched outstanding in the championship game going 6 1/3 innings before giving the ball to Bryce Helmer to
close out the game.  Caleb Jandora had a solid weekend at the plate and the Curve Jrs had some highlight defensive web gems led by Luca Capperelli's fly ball catch landing over the left field fence.
