The Crackerjack Gang

The Crackerjack Gang is a collection of the most unorthodox, but sincerely exceptional, group of baseball players I coached over the last twenty (20) years.
The Crackerjack Gang is a collection of the most unorthodox, but sincerely exceptional, group of baseball players I coached over the last twenty (20) years. If you coach long enough, in any sport, you come to appreciate the true Crackerjacks every year on your team. Crackerjack players make the long hours logged on the field and the monotony of team drills worth every second. Whether it’s the hours spent cramped in uncomfortable team vans, weekend trips to tournaments, team meals, their on-field antics, or just sitting next to them in the dugout, the anticipation of a Crackerjack player routinely engaging in extraordinarily memorable conduct and speech has always been just as exciting as the game itself. While I had the good fortune to experience these Crackerjacks on the baseball diamond, I genuinely believe Crackerjack players transcend the foul lines of a baseball field, and similar characters of the rarest, most peculiar breed are found in every sport and walk of life.
