February was a busy month for the Sluggers. Throughout Sundays in February and March, Coach Dan Long organized a series of weekly clinics for Rec Softball player ages 6-9 years old. The purpose of the camp was to introduce players to the game and to have a great deal of fun with the activities. Several of our Sluggers players assisted with the camp.

On February 19, 18u Coach Dan Long coordinated an “Older Teams Competition” with our 18,16, 15, and 14u teams. There was first an intense hour warmup with all teams working together. Next, teams had been equally divided so that all teams were a mix of different ages, much like high school teams. For the rest of the night, the divided 4 teams played a round robin of 3 games each. “I liked playing with different Sluggers. It was a good time,” said 18u player Jane Moran. “I got to hit against some of our older pitchers which was a great experience,” said 14u player Emma Wokurka. Coaches included 16u Coach Jodi Swiatkowski, 15u Coach Scott Mariani, and 14u Coach Jeff Ardito. Night turned into early morning at the Schaumburg Sports Center, where games finished at 2:00am.

Trivia Night was held on Friday, Feb 17. “We had a record number of guests this year at 511 people attending,” said Director Michelle Greenfield. “I purchased autographed pictures for my girls, and they are already choosing their favorites,” said 10u Coach Phil Falcone. A silent auction and various other activities were followed by dinner. The evening concluded with the annual Trivia Night Contest. “Our Rec Softball Commissioners supported us by reserving 21 guests who participated in the event. We appreciate their involvement, and our plans are to support each other for many years to come,” said Commissioner Frank Hill. Trivia night helps to defray the cost of renting the Slugger Training Center, home of the Sluggers elite hitting facility.


The month concluded with 2 hitting clinics conducted for interested rec softball players. Each player participated in numerous drills and each was given an analysis of her swing and a plan of action for improvement. “The clinic was well-planned and extremely well-executed. Our coaches were just fantastic in teaching the skills of hitting we covered in the clinics,” said Head Commissioner Frank Hill. Thanks also go to our Slugger players who helped with the event. Concluded Lily Pasquerelli, “I had a good time, especially in teasing Coach Hill.”

March begins the high school season for our older teams, while our younger teams will continue to work on hitting and fielding skills, as well as competing in a few indoor games.
