For Team Mom, Nina Rieger, of Henderson, Nevada, family life extends out of the home and on to the playing field - and she would have it no other way!
She is team mom for her son, Caelen's, 10 and under baseball team - the Tampa Bay Rays, while dad, Randy, is the head coach.
When asked about her best experience as a team mom, Rieger gave nothing but praise to her family and team. "There's really no one experience... it's the total experience," she wrote. "I love being a part of my son's sports and my husband's coaching - It's a family affair."
Rieger has an extremely busy schedule: working full time in the gaming industry in Las Vegas, serving on the board for HFFL (Henderson Flag Football League), and working towards a board member position with the PVLL (Paseo Verde Little League). With so much on her plate, the commitment she places in being team mom for the Rays is unmatched.
With a 6th place league finish in their inaugural season playing kid-pitch, and an overall 6-7-1 (W-L-T) record, the Rays have assured a strong group of returning players for next season. With the help of the Riegers, they are well on their way.
Rieger wrote, "Our team ended up with a decent record, but it was our first year in kid-pitch, so it was a learning experience for my husband and son." Next year's goal is to play well and secure a spot in the "Tournament of Champions.
We wish them congratulations on a solid first season, and we can't wait to see how the Rieger-led Rays do next year!
