I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you, Sidney, for a fine season of baseball. We can hang up our caps with pride for having played some great games and kept our spirits high even through all the loses. Looking forward to next season already...

It's time to rally the forces for the last game of the season. We meet up with the TAGs tomorrow on the ball field. Let's play to the honor of a great season, our fantastic team, and those who are with us now only in spirit. Team pictures with wingbands in place are available on my page if you'd like to select and post yours here. My page is arranged to showoff the fine team I've had the privilege of both playing with and coaching. I thank you for that opportunity.

  The Sports Report
Keets Rip Redtails
Most Bird Channel Baseball League observers looked at the Kevlar Keets’ recent upset of the league-leading Savage Sennies as something they would not be able to repeat. Maybe they were wrong as on Wednesday the Keets kept their bats in overdrive and ripped the Redtail Killer CAGs 34-14.
The game was tied at 2-all in the bottom of the second when the Keets burst out with seven runs as iris and Sidney hit solo home runs and Henry jacked a three-run shot. The Keets followed that with a four-run third as Lattie Jr. hit a two-run homer and the Keets led 13-2.
The Redtails tried to crawl back in the game with 10 runs in the top of the fourth as Sheba hit a three-run triple, Munchkin hit a two-run triple and Gabriella homered with one birdie on base. The Keets said “I’ll see your ten runs and raise you one as they blasted out eleven in the bottom of the inning. Betty. It is, and Mr. Birdie led off with singles to load the bases and Jazzy cleared them with a grand-slam home run. Duty hit a solo shot and Lattie Jr. and Turk reached base. Henry doubled in Duty and Sidney walked to load the bases again. Betty singled in Lattie Jr. and Iris cleared the bases with a triple. She later scored on Tweety’s single and the Keets led 24-12 and coasted to the win as hurler Duty shut the Retails out over the final four innings.
Sheba drove in three to lead the Redtails. Arthur, Munchkin, Gabriella, and Layla all drove in two and Mowgli, Grady, and Ruby drove in one each.
Jazzy pushed six runs across to lead the Keets while Henry drove in five and Iris and Lattie Jr. drove in four each. Tweety, Sidney, and Getty drove in three each, Turk, Duty, and Mr. Birdie two apiece.

We're up against the Savage Sennies, the toughest team in the Talon League. On top of that, we're playing in a packed stadium today at HersheyPark as part of the Rio & Ruby Anniversary Celebration. (The Sports Report will be posted on Rio's page 12707 at about 12 EST) No game has been more important than this one! This is our chance to show that despite our many losses, we are an incredible team if not only for the sense of Pride and Spirit we display when it comes to a love of the game. We've got to pull down those caps, pull up the pants, and stroll out onto that ball field like we own the place and know the future. Yeah, that's it... CONFIDENCE!!

The team needs your awesome catching wing at short in its finest form today, Sidney — that same fine form you've displayed all season.

LATTIE - our first basebird.

He will be missed by his friends and teammates. My cap is off in honor of this fine bird and the flock and family he's left behind.

To honor Lattie's memory, flockmate Lattie Jr. will be stepping up to the plate in his place. We'll be meeting L. Jr. later this week when his picture is posted. T '>

  Here's to The Kevlar Keets!!
This Sports Report was too good not to share with you.

Keets Klobber Senegals
The Kevlar Keets responded to the pep-talk from their manager Turk and flexed their feathers Thursday on the way to a 21-18 win over the tough Super Senegals. The tough little birds powered eleven home runs in the contest and left their opponents mumbling about performance enhancing millet spray.
The Keets got on the scoreboard first in the top of the first inning as Duty and Lattie connected for back-to-back jacks. Turk tripled and Henry lost one over the fence as the Keets took a 4-0 lead. The Keets were still flying high in the top of the second inning as Mr. Birdie tripled and scored on a single by Tweety. Jazzy homered to drive in Tweety and Duty hit a solo shot as the Keets now led 8-0.
The Senegals chipped away at the lead and had cut it to 12-8 entering the seventh but the Keets got two-run shots from Betty and Tweety to extend the lead to 16-8. Betty added another two-run jack in the eighth to boost the margin to 18-8.
The Senegals finally put on their hitting cleats in the bottom of the eighth as they sent eleven birdies up to bat with all of their runs scoring after two outs had been recorded. Lover Boy and Erin Amber reached base and scored ahead of a home run by NY Mango. Lola and Sam singled ahead of a triple by Lars. Max tripled in Lars and then scored ahead of a home run by Pico. Gus added a solo shot and the Sennies had cut the lead to 18-17.
The Keets added three runs of insurance in the top of the ninth and allowed only a solo home run from Erin Amber in the bottom of the inning as they won by the final margin of 21-18.

Hoping all is well with you and Polly. If your summer has been anything like mine, you've had some scary weather. Just last week a pole shed just behind my Bird Barn was ripped out of the ground and thrown into a 50' maple right next to my building. The roof of my summer home was damaged in the process but no birdie inside was hurt. Scared by all the incredible racket but not hurt. Here's hoping you and your sis are safe and it's just busy humans that keep you from the BC. I completly understand THAT.

Well, the ball is not rolling in The KEVLAR KEETS' favor. Not in the least. Our Saturday game against the macaws went to the Big Guys. If you've not been by the BC League page, it's worth the trip to read the write up from that day. Apparently, my fellow 'Keets, we are somewhat of the darlings of the BC League! That fact though does not save us from loosing a game. On the contrary... unfortunately.

I was to be here this evening to prepare you for tomorrow's game against the Brazilian Bombers but much to my surprise, the game has already been played. (Maybe your Coach has been hit in the head one too many times by a fly ball and I just don't know which day it is anymore.) Interestingly enough, after Asha chastised the Macaws for beatin' up on us little guys, she and her team came out and promptly repeated the beating. Yes, we lost. Again.

I don't know what to tell you, Team, other than if we can't win this series with our baseball talents, let's win the hearts of our competitors by being cheery, outgoing, friendly, and eternally upbeat. Isn't that what a Budgie's famous for anyway?

My cap's off to all of you, for being here for your team, time after time.

The KEVLAR KEETS are due for a turn around, don't you think? Let's hope Wednesday's game is that turning point.

For your convenience, I'm including, once again, the names and numbers of your teammates in case you feel inspired to, you know, get out there and cheer the group on to VICTORY!

Welcome back!! Good to see you've been able to wing your way by the BC here lately. We've missed you. I know, I know, this spring and summer-like weather just makes computer time a rare thing.

Coach Turk here. The following Sports Report will show that though we are small, we are mighty and we put up an incredible fight to the finish in our Bullet-Proof Kevlar vests. I'm very, VERY PROUD of my team.

The Kevlar Keet’s defense had on their bullet proof vests early shutting out the Pois for the first 2 innings. The Keets scored 3 runs in the 1st when Jazzy opened while a solo HR and then Duty, Lattie and Henry all hit triples to make the score 3-0. However, the little birdies were unable to increase their score in the 2nd. In the 3rd, the Pois got on the scoreboard when Junior scored when Rafiki hit a HR. The Keets would come right back as Jazzy, Duty and Lattie combined for 2 to make the score 5-2. After a defense dominated 4th, the Pois came out swinging with singles from Jack, Apollo and Mongo, doubles from George and Romeo and Junior’s HR to take a 6-5 lead. The Keets would retake the lead in the 6th when Betty and Iris scored when Mr. Birdie hit a triple. The Keets would increase their lead in the 7th scoring 3 runs as Lattie, Turk and Henry loaded the bases and scored when Betty hit a triple. The Kevlar defense would shine again stopping the Pois and entered the 9th with a 10-8 lead. The Pois were determined to break through the Keet’s defensive shield and tied the game when Junior scored when Molli hit a HR. In extra innings, the Pois would break the tie when Tiki scored when Nippy hit a single and thne Hal hit a HR to take a 3 run lead. Keet Tweety would hit a double to get things started for the Keet but the Pois slammed the door shut. Final Score: Da Pois ‘N” Dem 13, Kevlar Keets 10.

Your part in the defensive plays was mighty important in holding the Pois to a lower scoring game. Thanks for being on the ball there at the Short Stop position.

Our next match up comes against the Tiel Terrors. They're no longer undefeated. The Grey Knights took'm down a notch! We're gonna keep that trend going! Yeah!!

Hope the rest of your week is a fine one. T '>

Our last game against the TAGs didn't roll the way we would've like but we've got another opportunity to turn this season around TOMORROW!

We'll be playing the Pois'N'Dem Team in our first game of the Inter-League Round. We need this one, TEAM KEVLAR. Not to depress you but here's how our record currently stands;

Game 1 KEETS/Quakers WIN!!!!!!!!
Game 2 Keets/ C2 Hawks
Game 3 KEETS / Zons WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Hey Sidney & Polly
Flapper's doing great, flying around everywhere & getting a bit better at landing! Mom got a new cage as it's now time for Flaps to move out - not too far away though, her cage is on top of ours! Stampee & I had a good look around the cage and it's pretty sweet. Mom put up some foam on the inside bars to protect Flapper's wings - she has to flap vigorously to move anywhere! Plus, there's a real nice nest in there - Stampee & I thought we could have it but sadly no, mom said it's for Flaps! Mom gave me a lovely bath the other day when the weather was warm. As you can probably guess from my pic, I had a great time! Nothing like a good soaking heehee... Vote 4 you both. Lil Jerry.

Well, Team, the Red Tailed Killer Greys took that last game from us. As your coach, I'm willing to take full responsibility as I failed to make it around to leave words of preparation and encouragement. (It's pretty bad when the coach misses a game!)
Though our impressinve team is down three games out of five games, the season is yet YOUNG, leaving us lots of opportunity to win many more. Our next chance is a week away; SATURDAY! KEVLAR KEETS vs TAGS.

And now an important Baseball Announcement!!

The Bird Channel Baseball League will be holding its First Annual All-Star Game the first week in June. You need to start thinking of who you want to vote to your LEAGUE's All-Star Team. Members of each league will vote for the team to represent them at the big game. You cannot vote for a member of your own team! EACH player needs to vote for one player at EACH POSITION and send your ballot to the BC League Page. Cast your vote as soon as possible!

Let's put together a great team for the TALON LEAGUE! Members of that league include the Columbina Conquistadors, the Savage Sennies, the Quakers, US, the TAGS, C2 Hawks, and the CAG2 team. If in 'watching' any of those games you noted an exceptional player in a particular position, vote for them to play on the All-Star Team. I'd like to see a strong showing of voting by the KEVLAR KEETS on the BC page. Pretty please!
