Abig congratulations to all the winners of this year's myriad of
League Championships that took place this past summer. Your hard
work and perseverance throughout the Spring paid off in spades
once the summer months came along.

Junior Baseball over the years. He's also a heck of an outfielder, and he's
shared his tips on how to improve your game with our David Driver, starting
on page 10.

rising pitching stars. And interestingly enough, he's one of just a handful of
players who grew up in New Hampshire. So Jeff was perfectly qualified to
weigh in on how to be an effective hurler in cold weather, considering how
chilly it can be in the Granite State at the start of the season! His advice starts
on page 14.
By the time you get this issue, you'll probably be just about ready to put
down some ideas on your holiday wish list. Cue the 2013 Junior Baseball

annual guide starts on page 33.
