The St. Cloud Blue Sox 11AAA team is headed to Aurora, Colorado next week to play in a USSSA Global World Series.  This has been in the works for the past 2 months but after the tragedy that happened early Friday morning at a movie theater in Aurora my feelings have changed.  We still plan on going but it was all about the baseball and now it will be about more than that.

Eleven players, coaches and families will be walking into a community shook by a single gunman who killed 12 and injured 50 innocent people.  Knowing that this type of tragedy could happen anywhere it makes us take a step back and be thankful for our families.

The kids have worked hard all season to become one of the best baseball teams in the state but baseball doesn't seem to matter as much as it used to.
