The Cody Legion C team continues to improve as the season winds down.
“We have played well these last few weeks. I feel like the boys are starting to really come together as a team,” coach Connor McLeod said. “We’ve been focusing all year on learning the game and making it fun. The boys are doing a great job of that. Every day we try to teach them something new whether that be fundamentals like how to field a ground ball, or strategical aspects of the game like bunt coverages or pick-off moves.”
