Avon played a great game and defeated Simsbury 12-5 last night. They play again tonight in Granby at 5:30. Anyone interested in attending, the field is located at Salmon Brook Park off Route 10.

Don't forget about the 10/11 year old All Stars!! They played a great game Monday night and now head to the District 6 Championship game at 5:30 at Sperry Park in Avon. Please come out and support them!

Hi Jessie, Thanks so much for posting the article .. can't wait to read it. We haven't taken our team photo yet. I'll send you one as soon as we do. In the meantime, I'll canvass parents for pictures from Monday's game. My son pitched that game and there is no way I can hold a camera steady and watch him pitch! Also, great news that you are sending Ted to cover our game ... very exciting!!
