Cubs to Host Cody Lions Tournament This Weekend

Written by on July 10, 2020

THE CODY CUBS LEGION A TEAM IS PLAYING JUST ABOUT AS GOOD OF BASEBALL AS ANYONE IN THE SATE. THEY CURRENTLY SPORT A RECORD OF 24-13, ARE RIDING A 7-GAME WIN STREAK, HAVE WON 15 OF THEIR LAST 16 GAMES AND 20 OF THEIR LAST 24. NOW THE CUBS WILL GET A LITTLE BREAK FROM THE GRIND OF THE REGULAR SEASON AS THEY WILL HOST THE CODY LIONS TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND. I CAUGHT UP WITH COACH GRENZ AND HE TALKS ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE TOURNAMENT.

WE’VE HOSTED TOURNAMENTS IN CODY FOR A LONG TIME. I DON’T QUITE KNOW HOW LONG FOR SURE. THE LIONS CLUB CAME ON A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO AND STARTED SPONSORING THE TOURNAMENT FOR US. THE LIONS CLUB IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION HERE IN TOWN, RAN BY A GREAT GROUP OF GUYS. YOU KNOW THEY REALLY LIKE TO SUPPORT THE YOUTH AND WE’RE JUST HAPPY TO HAVE THEIR NAME ON ONE OF OUR TOURNAMENTS.”

WITH A TOURNAMENT BRINGS SOME DIFFERENT COMPETITION AS CODY WELCOMES BOTH GILLETTE AND JACKSON TO TOWN. COACH GRENZ ON THE DIFFERENT LOOK A TOURNAMENT CAN PROVIDE.

IT’LL BE GREAT TO HAVE GILLETTE AND JACKSON IN TOWN. BOTH OF THEM HAVE REALLY GOOD PROGRAMS. IT’LL BE GILLETTE’S SINGLE A TEAM THAT THEY’RE SENDING OVER. THEY SEEM TO BE PLAYING GOOD BASEBALL AS OF LATE. JACKSON’S A DOUBLE A PROGRAM THAT WORKS REALLY HARD AT THE GAME AND HAS HAD SUCCESS OVER THE YEARS. THEY FINISHED SECOND LAST YEAR AT THE DOUBLE A STATE TOURNAMENT. SO THEM COMING TO TOWN, IT’LL BE TWO REALLY GOOD TEAMS THAT WE’LL GET TO PLAY, THAT WE DON’T SEE OTHERWISE.”

AS OF LATE THE CUBS HAVE BEEN A FORCE OFFENSIVELY, SCORING OVER 11 RUNS PER GAME IN THEIR LAST SIX CONTESTS FOR THE CUBS OFFENSIVELY IT’S BEEN A ONSLAUGHT OF RUNS, SCORING 11 PLUS RUNS IN THE LAST 6 GAMES. COACH GRENZ ON WHAT HE’S LOOKING FOR FROM THE PLAYERS THIS WEEKEND.

JUST THAT WE CONTINUE TO IMPROVE AND GET BETTER, THAT THE KIDS COME DOWN THERE AND ENJOY EACH OTHER, BEING AROUND EACH OTHER. WE STILL ARE WORKING ON PITCHING. WE’LL BE RUNNING SOME DIFFERENT GUYS UP THERE THIS WEEKEND, SEE HOW THEY DO AND PUTTING SOME PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT ROLES TO SEE IF THAT WILL HELP US DOWN THE LINE. WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON HERE IN THE COMING WEEKS, A LOT OF GAMES, SO WE’RE REALLY GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH OUR PITCHING AND TAKE CARE OF THOSE ARMS.”

AND COACH GOES ON TO TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH FUN IT IS TO BE A PART OF A TOURNAMENT LIKE THIS AND THE EXCITEMENT IT CAN BRING.

IT’S GREAT. IT’S GREAT FOR THE KIDS, FOR THE COMMUNITY. IT’LL BE FUN TO BE AT HOME AND HAVE DIFFERENT TEAMS IN TOWN. BEING ABLE TO WATCH DIFFERENT TEAMS PLAY GAMES. YOU KNOW, NOT ALWAYS IS IT THAT YOU HAVE TO PLAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE GAME. SOMETIMES JUST WATCHING OTHER TEAMS PLAY HELPS YOU. AND WE HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT A LOT THIS YEAR BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T BEEN TO TOURNAMENTS WHERE WE’VE HAD THOSE BREAKS.”
