For Tuesday 08/01/2017


Competition is a good thing. One can only appreciate the thrill of victory if they have ever tasted defeat. The giving of a trophy to every participant negates the true purpose of awarding the original trophy to those who went the extra mile and through sheer determination and extra effort became victors and champions. This is not to say that participating is not a noble thing, but that, in my opinion, if everyone wins then really no one wins.

Bradley County has been well represented in recent baseball competition not only in the regular season of play but also in the All-Star teams in which 9 teams placed and were working extremely hard to represent us all throughout post-season play. Each age, team and level reached are listed:

6 year olds, Bradley County Young Guns place 5th in State Tournament; Bradley County Avengers placed 6th in Consolation bracket. 7 year olds, Bradley County placed 4th in Consolation bracket and also received the Sportsmanship Award! 8 year olds, Bradley County placed 5th in State tournament. 9 year olds, Bradley County placed 3rd in State tournament. 10 year olds, Bradley Bullets WON the State tournament and after moving on to the World Series being held in South Haven, MS they were able to finish in 6th place in the Nation on last Tuesday 07/25/2017; Bradley Thunder placed 8th in the State tournament. 11 year olds; Bradley County placed 5th in the State tournament and also received the Sportsmanship Award. 12 year olds, Bradley County placed 5th in the State tournament.

A special thank you was given by Andy Lockhart, Bradley County Parks and Recreation Director to each and every volunteer coach and parents that make our leagues possible. They are currently signing up for our fall sports online at www.bradleyparks.com and at their main office that is located at 3110 Peerless Road for fall baseball, football and cheerleading. Coaching volunteers and umpires are also always needed.

If you are looking for a great place for your children to participate and grow in athletic skill and learn valuable lessons that only teams sport are able to teach and instill as part of their formative years, please know that I, and many more, whole heartily encourage participation in our local communities sporting and competition programs. Please know that each participant, volunteer and parent are appreciated and that Bradley County Parks and Recreation are another reason that Bradley County is Tennessee at its best.
