Ellsworth Baseball Coach Dan Curtis wrote the following letter to his team. He talks about 3 priorities, and they are in order 1. Family , 2. School and 3. Baseball. He goes on, they aren't team secrets but keys to life. Anything goes wrong with the first two, the third doesn’t exist.

The letter takes on added significance, when you consider Coach Curtis is the Coach of the defending Class B State Champions, and that 2 of his sons would have been on the team this year, including his son Jackson, who would have been playing his final year as a senior.
