Burbank Middle School Baseball Team under Manager Mr. Jeremiah Dozier participated in a short tournament that was held at Briar Meadows Middle School last June. Participating schools included Pilgrim, Westbriar MS, Tanglewood, Pershing, McReynolds, the host school Briar Meadows and Burbank MS. It was a double elimination tournament where Burbank's team reached the semifinals.
Following the tournament, our team also took part in a Campus Clean-Up Activity around the neighborhood.
The Team went to the DBat Softball and Baseball Academy site in West Houston for some batting practice after which they grabbed garbage bags and went around the neighborhood cleaning up. In no time at all, the whole area was sparkling!
The kids are learning that together they can achieve much, not only in the field of play, but in life. Mr. Dozier is very happy to see that, since he's a firm believer in giving back to your community whenever you can.
Our Baseball parents are very supportive of our team. They sponsored the batting practice at DBat and one of the parents, Ms. Stacey Casique, treated the team to a delicious pizza.
Our students welcomed the chance to be outside and play baseball after more than a year of inactivity, and hopefully there will be more good times to come in the near future.
