Wear jerseys, remember water and need helpers

Wear jerseys, remember water and need helpers

Please wear jerseys tonight.

Water bottle reminder.

Take temperature.

Also looking for helpers (who should also take temp before coming). I'd like to have the kids who are unlikely to get to the plate while we're up to bat getting some batting practice or playing catch behind the dugout. This will get kids more reps and keep them distanced better.

Try to have the kids there about 15 minutes early tonight.

Thanks,

Tony

Tessia paid for part of the Jerseys so please pay her $5 per player. Cash is preferred. She is planning on being at practice tonight.

Looking for helpers tomorrow @ Bennett

Looking for helpers tomorrow @ Bennett

Hi, all.

We had our best practice tonight thanks to some extra help. Looking for more tomorrow. Please let me know. The boys worked hard so, hopefully, you had some easy bed times. We saw more progress tonight.

Tomorrow will be hot. Remember to send them with water bottles and maybe extra ice in the water.

Reminder that Thursday practice is cancelled. I'll take it off the calendar.

Since I can't seem to get ahold of you through the app, I'll plan to text in the future as I did tonight in case I need to get ahold of you from the field.

Looking for more helpers

Looking for more helpers

Hi, all.

Please let me know if you'd be willing to help tonight at practice. No significant baseball experience necessary. Just need to take your temperature before attending. Also a reminder to take your player's temp before coming to practice as well.

Schedule changes
by posted 06/25/2020

Hi, all. Please check this message in your email if you are getting the text.

For next week, we are looking to move the Thursday practice to Tuesday. Please let me know if this works for you. Also, another team has reached out and would like to do a scrimmage on Wednesday at 7pm at Freeman 1. Please let me know if this works for you as well.

So next week would look like this:

  • Practice Monday, 5:30 at Freeman
  • Practice Tuesday, 5:15 at Bennett
  • Scrimmage Wednesday, 7:00 at Freeman
  • Cancel Thursday practice

Reminder this Saturday's practice was cancelled. However, I've kept the field reserved for possible one-on-one pitching sessions. If anyone is available, I'd love to do a 15-20 minutes pitching session with your player. Let me know and we'll schedule it. Each player should pitch at least once this season and it can be a stressful experience for some.

Thanks, all.

Tony
