Their great coach from the very beginning, Frank Webb, died of cancer this past week.
The funeral is Saturday in Missouri.
Travis Resmondo did absolutely the right thing, pulled the team out of both Duals, and they are all attending the funeral.
It will be almost impossible for them to make up the lost ground and win the Conference USSSA title now.
But that does not matter. My friend Frank died. And showing him respect was more important than winning a Conference USSSA title.
By the way, Helmer's team and a couple others paid respect to Frank today by wearing Resmondo jerseys or "Frank The Tank" jerseys in their games.
