WHY DID YOUR FAMILY CHOOSE CBC?
We were fortunate that my nephew was playing at CBC and my brother shared with me what an excellent organization it was, the impressive roster of coaches, the exceptional facilities at Rivertown and most importantly the philosophy most of the coaches approach the game with which included making sure the boys play multiple positions. When my son was old enough to play at CBC, we made the move and have been extremely pleased with our experience.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY OR ASPECT OF OPENING DAY?
It’s my absolute favorite day at Rivertown! Nothing feels more “hometown” and even American as a huge community baseball Opening Day. It’s an impressive all-day event where parents, grandparents, friends and family all come out to support Creeks Baseball Club players and coaches. It’s a truly unique experience and these boys (especially the younger ones) feel quite special hearing their name and number called on the Stadium Field as they run across home plate with a crowd cheering for them! Couple that with the singing of the National Anthem and fireworks at the end…it’s an event these boys will never forget.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE SEASON?
Without a doubt, our Spring 2022 season was one I will always remember fondly. If you know anyone in the Northeast Florida baseball community it’s likely they will know the name, Rusty Melcolm. Coach Rusty has coached players who are playing in college and in the majors. When our son made his team, the previous year, he called my cell phone introduced himself and asked to speak with my son. He said to my 9 year-old, “This is Coach Rusty Melcolm. Son, I was extremely impressed with your tryout and I’d like to extend an offer to play on my team. What do ya’ say?” It was really a special experience to have the coach call the child instead of the parent (not to mentioned my kid felt like he had just been drafted.) We had two great years with Coach Rusty. He retired during our Spring 2022 season after a few of the best tournaments our boys had played!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MLB TEAM?
GO CUBS! Although my husband, daughter and son are all Yankees fans! So I pull for Rizzo! I mean, what’s a Cubs fan to do these days. :/
