Cotuit Kettleers, 2013 Cape Cod League Champions

Danny Diekroeger, infielder Stanford University, said it so well at the completion of the championship game of the Cape Cod League that "Work, Works!" Danny developed this phrase after our coaching staff spent the summer encouraging our players to improve their work habits, be more detailed when they are practicing, and don't be afraid to get dirty when practicing. It will lead to excellence! Athletes will improve areas of their game with hard-nosed detailed work. The Cotuit Kettleers players made plays (offensively, defensively, and with pitches off the mound) that were executed because those opportunities had been practiced over and over. Danny's statement made me realize the TEAM had bought in thru-out the summer that "Work, Works!" I was so blessed to teach and coach such a hard-nosed group of baseball players who loved to practice and then execute in tough game situations. I say "Thank You" to each Kettleer player in the summer of 2013. You are "Champions" on and off the field.
