After our first practise session today, our entire team attended a cookout provided to us by the community. For anyone in Australia who doesn't know what a cookout is, it's a lot like a barbecue, but with a larger variety of foods. It was fun way to meet the local community and some of our fans who seem pretty eager for the season to start. The Elizabethton Twins have a rich history of winning here with 22 straight winning seasons and 4 championships in the last 7 years, so I'm sure the fans expect nothing less then to see us win on the field.
Have to give a shout out to Sam Spangler, who was unanimously voted in to be the official spokesperson for out team. He delivered a wonderful speech to the community thanking them for providing us with our lovely meal for the night.
