Coaches in charge of high school baseball teams in the summer often sound like a broken record.
The reasons they take part of the games throughout the month of June is to expose as many of their players to the game as possible.

Fans are excited, but that excitement may have been amped up a step higher after what the MSU marketing department released on Monday.
Ginger Brown-Lemm took over the Mississippi State women's golf program with a mindset of not settling.
The Hope, Ark., native wanted her Bulldog squad to not only compete in the Southeastern Conference, but nationally against some of the best teams in the NCAA.
Starkville Baseball Association is all about doing what it takes to make sure there is baseball offered to the area kids.
With that in mind, the league decided to change things up a bit this year in order to accommodate some of its younger players.
The Starkville Yellowjackets are getting experience on the baseball field this summer.
With six games per week between his varsity, junior varsity and junior high teams, SHS baseball coach Travis Garner has plenty of opportunities to evaluate talent.

Being a father is one of the greatest rewards a man can experience.
â€śIt is the greatest thing I have ever been able to do,â€ť Choctaw County football coach Adam Dillinger said. â€śIt is the biggest responsibility I have ever had and the greatest rewards I have ever had come from that.â€ť
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to interview Randall Bradberry over the phone prior to his induction into the Mississippi Community College Sports Hall of Fame.
Our visit went well and it was obvious that Bradberry valued the time and relationships he established while playing football at East Mississippi Community College and Sturgis High School in Oktibbeha County.
The New York Yankees officially added the two relief pitchers from Mississippi State to their program on Saturday.
