Hello ParentSavvy and Lil Chasers,

Stormy here!! What an awesome start to the season it has been. From seeing my Lil Chasers Sunday and Tuesday of our first home stand, Hy-Vee Friday Fireworks, Valentino's Birthday Parties to the actual games; I'm totally excited. I hope to see you and your family at Werner Park soon. 

Now that the season has started and the Storm Chaser players are playing, it's important that they practice every day. They practice taking ground balls, throwing, hitting, running, and catching the ball. They all want to be big leaguers one day and in order to accomplish their goal they have to work on their craft.

How do you think I became the mascot I am today? I worked hard on my dancing skills, stirring up the storm, and making people laugh. 

What do you want to do? Play the guitar? Make video games? Be a professional painter? Whatever you want to do is going to require work.

One of my favorite books (yes, I read!!) is called Outliers. The author, Malcolm Gladwell, taught me about the importance of how much time it takes to master something. He said that in order for someone to really master their craft, they need to put in 10,000 hours or repetitions of something. 10,000!!! I have a lot more dancing to do!!

Here's to you finding a passion and putting in the hard work to truly becoming a master at your craft!!

Your biggest fan,
