On the third Sunday in June every year, we celebrate our dads on Father’s Day.

Who taught you to pick up a ball, pick up a bat or swing away; dad did.

Countless hours in the car driving you to practice, to a game, to the football field, basketball gym, volleyball court or to the diamond, and we say “Thank You Dad.”

So in honor of all the great dads out there, here’s an opportunity for the area’s high school players and coaches to show their dads how much they really mean to them on this special day:

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!

“On this Father’s Day I’d like to thank my father for...”

On this Father’s Day I’d like to thank my father for always being there to support me. From club games, to beach, to school season, my dad is always at my games to watch me play, and I can never thank him enough for being there for me!

On this Father’s Day we’d like to thank our father for getting up every weekday at 5 a.m. to go to work and to make sure we have everything we need financially to fulfill our dreams of playing college softball. Your hard work has allowed us to travel all over the country to help reach our goal. On your days off, you get up hours before we do to make sure all our bags, coolers, snacks, etc. is in the car when we head out to the ballpark. You have no idea how much that means to us. We just want you to know how much we love and appreciate everything you do and how much you sacrifice for us. We love you!
