May 12, 2010:
Nat's report on Coyotes game: The final score of the game last night was 31-9.
We got off to a rough start (I think we lost something like 20 runs in the 
first 2-3 innings), but things went more smoothly once everyone warmed up.

May 7, 2010:
Last night's game against the Ooze started off well, the Dragons were ahead
3-1 after the first inning. Unfortunately the final score was a 7-4 loss.
But it was a good showing. The Ooze have usually been a strong team, and 
their first game earlier in the week was a defeat of the Unnatural Selection,
last year's #2 team.
May 4, 2010:
An auspicious start -- after an afternoon of dark clouds, high winds, and 
fallen trees, the sun shone on us as we took the field in our first game,
against the Valley Radicals. We took an early lead in the first inning --
we held them scoreless in the top of the inning, and our leadoff batter
Hector started our half with a triple. No scorebook in front of me, but 
we scored at least 3, maybe 4, runs in our first inning. Things looked a
bit tighter as we got further into the game, it was 4-4 and a bit later 
5-5, but then the Dragons breathed fire. Final score was Dragons 14, 
Radicals 6.

April 21, 2010, news from Nat:

The team is officially registered and ready to rock. Practices will

we feel like leaving at Groff Park in South Amherst.

We'll be doing some batting practice and fielding exercises and,
depending on turnout, we might try doing a scrimmage at the end.
Bring a glove and some comfortable clothes to run in. Also, the
weather says that there may be intermittent thunderstorms tomorrow
afternoon. So, bring a raincoat. If it starts to thunder we'll call
off practice. Stay tuned... I'll send out an email tomorrow afternoon
around 4-5 to confirm practice is still on provided the weather
doesn't get too gnarly.

Any questions, directions, or if people need help coordinating a ride
let me know.
