by posted 07/06/2020

Hey All,

Just a reminder that we have a new practice schedule.

WEDNESDAYs Only @ 5:30pm - 6:45pm at MME Field 5.

I will not be there this Wednesday, but Coach James and Coach Stuart will both be there to run it. I have a previous conflict that was scheduled way before the apocolypse hit. 

Games this weekend:

Saturday 7/11: 10:00am @ Freeman-3

Sunday 7/12: 12:00pm @ Bennett-2

I will send out a game communication as we get closer detaling arrival times if indeed we can use the batting cages prior to the games.

Thanks,

Steve

Scrimmage Tonight @ 6:00PM Bennett 2
by posted 07/02/2020

Hey-O

Just a reminder we have a Scrimmage Tonight @ 6:00PM Bennett 2 (Arrive @ 5:30)

The other coach and I have been communicating about the potential issues around heat. 

We are working on the possibility of time limits around half innings, longer breaks between innings, etc... Player safety is always the most important thing. Please send extra water with your son tonight - with only eight, I think we can make the dugout work for everyone if they stand/sit where we tell them to. The list below are the eight players I have as attending tonight. If your player's name is on this list and you will not be attending tonight, please let me know so I can make the proper adjustments.

Sid
Austin
Dom
Ollie
Jax
Cole
Max
Ayson

NEW PRACTICE TIME UPDATE:

We have a new practice time moving forward: WEDENESDAYs @ 5:30pm - 6:45pm at MME Field 5 - we really must have been the last team picked out of the hat to draw such an awful field. If I had to guess, I would say it's the far field toward the west end of the football/soccer/track area. If this field were to be reviewed on YELP it might get 1/2 star and management would be spending most of their day responsing to the negative reviews. If any of you saw the Movie Major League, they put the team on a prop plane with duct tape on the propellers and then after that move them to a junky bus to travel the team - that's this field. Silver lining is that the mosquitos do not come out until after 8pm and we will be long gone by then. They also shaved 15 minutes off of the practice and cut them down to one practice a week. I will try to schedule batting cage time during the week, so look for that.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Steve

This Week in Baseball....
by posted 06/29/2020

Hi Everyone,

This week we have two scrimmages and one time change:

Tonight vs Fay & Associates at Thorpe 2 7:00PM
Thorpe 2 is the other field at Thorpe park. It has an actual pitching mound and offers shade for the kids. 

Thursday July 2 vs Boyer @ Bennett 2 6:00 PM
Boyer has the field from 5:30 to 7 and we have it 7 to 8:30.

Arrive at 5:30 to warm up and then we will scrimmage them until 8:00pm

UNIFORMS are IN

I picked up the uniforms today (Deep Burgandy) they will go well with our jet black hats. Combine this with scorching heat and weird dugout rules, I will allow more complaining than usual. 

IF the field is open tonight - please send enough water with your player - it's going to be a Soupy Hot Sweaty Mess out there. 

If you want to stay and watch, MBA says you probably need to watch from Chaska (just to be safe), so bring binoculars. You know what I mean. Thorpe 2 has plenty of trees to stand under or you can stay in your car with the A/C on. 

Our game schedule has been posted on the website - all games appear to be on the weekends through early/mid August.

Steve
