  • Jett, I agree. Would actually be disappointed if the coach did that. Silly for me to even think it.

      If Sparks grandson needed the work then he should be getting more innings. But with his low ERA you got to keep one of your best pitchers game ready by pitching him more often.

      • Little Sparks called and said he got a full scholarship today.

        Very proud of him.

                  • Played his last game last night. Tough night. Gave 2 earned runs but was in trouble in all 3 innings.
                    Finished his first year with a respectable 2.49 era. 4 saves no losses or wins.

                    • Got the official papers yesterday.

                      Little Sparks received a full scholarship.

                      Pretty big day around here. It's a long journey from the first post I posted on this thread more than a decade ago.

                        • Yea jake it's been a long journey. A friend asked me the other day what makes baseball so special?

                          I thought and remembered. Little Sparks senior year he pitched against our crosstown rivals. Didn't make it out of the second inning. They were literally hitting every pitch he threw.

                          His next game was against the state champions and they were stacked. He threw his first no hitter and stuck out 13.

                          That's baseball.

                              • Did Lil Sparks coach set him up with a collegiate summer league team? It's where the best exposure for post JuCo will come from. If he's in a good enough summer league he could be playing with D1 players.
