It has been honestly sizzling & humid this week, which is proper for this time of the year, during the Spring months in Phoenix, temperatures are usually warm, and there are often afternoons during March & May when the temperatures are in the ’90s, then unfortunately, every one of us had a couple of afternoons when the temperatures were close to 100° in May & every one of us had to cancel all of the baseball team practices 3 afternoons in a rowâ€¦ I coach a baseball team in Phoenix & every one of us properly have practices in the afternoon that last 2 hours or more.
Temperatures were still 100° in the afternoon, so every one of us canceled 3 afternoons of practiceâ€¦ When the team finally came back to the field, all of the kids were acting lazy. I told the kids to run the field 3 times & I got a bunch of complaints. After practice was over, every one of us made the choice to go to the locker room to scrub up & there was no air conditioning at all. I could not figure out why the air conditioning wasn’t working. I adjusted the temperature control & I also checked to make sure that the breaker to the air conditioning was on. I contacted the building manager to complain about the indoor temperatures & he told me that the air conditioning could not be fixed until the following week. When I heard the news, I decided to cancel baseball practices for the rest of the week. I hope that every one of us will be able to get back on track next week. The team is going to start playing games in 3 weeks & every one of us aren’t even close to ready.
