We Are The Champions!!!!

Whoo-Hoo!!
Ladies & Gentlemen,
By a score of 10-3,
The Sandhills Optimist Baseball
Minor League Tournament Champions of 2008
The........

(Cheers, Applause, Screaming, "Go Royals")

Everyone was so excited over this win.

You see, we were expected & told that the Royals would be the worst team in the league. "You don't want your son to play on that team." some players were told. "They're not gonna do anything this year."

Well, the little 7th ranked (out of 9) Royals with a 5-7-1 season, rolled over everybody they met in the playoffs. They worked hard and they played hard.

It is a well deserved victory & just goes to show that if you want it bad enough, you can make it happen!

Great job, boys!

We're all very proud of you!

Way to go!

We played the Sandhills Optimist
All-Stars last summer in Southern Pines. I remember the name.

Now the song "We are the Champions"
will NOT stop playing in my head.
