A chance to spend more time with his family and with his kids was too much to pass up.

One of the biggest disadvantages for all spring sports teams being affected by the weather is they likely will have a shortened season, meaning teams will be forced to get league contests in first, leading to teams having to drop early season competitive games against top opponents from around the state.

"The idea was to fly 'em and then we found out it was going to be $19,000 to fly a team to Florida", Miles said.

Link said that this season in particular had its problems from the start.

"The cold has probably been the bigger problems, it just doesn't want to quit". "You're so limited to what you can do in a gym". We've got a new kid (first-year senior), Frank Neff, he's also looking pretty promising also and a couple younger guys, Steven Rowland, Clayton Rowland, a ninth grader; and Wyatt Chudy will also get some innings for us.
