Spring Training in Full swing

"Work now, play later" has been the Valley Baseball Association's (VBA) motto for this season. The team has put in a tremendous amount of work over the last 12 weeks. VBA has been practicing three days per week since January 4.
   The team had an opportunity to put their muster to the test in Kennewick. The club played two games on March 31 and one game on April 1. This was a tune-up for the tournament facet of their season.
   Then April 6 through 8, VBA will participate in a USSSA (World Series) qualifying tournament at Hartman Park in Redmond. Ten other teams will join them. Stop by and watch some baseball!
   The Sandy Koufax regular season begins April 14.
