I would like to welcome you and your player to The Twisters, Fall Baseball team! My name is Benjamin Santella or Coach Ben. I am looking to have a fun, exciting, safe and healthy season.
As you have probably expected, social distancing guidelines have followed from spring/summer into fall ball. Additionally, we will not be sharing any personal equipment, i.e. gloves, bats, batting gloves. Unfortunately, we do not have catchers gear for everyone to have their own but the league is providing disinfectant products that will be used by a coach between players. Balls will also be cleaned at the end of each practice before returning to a communal bucket. I will provide hand sanitizer for your player and will ask them to use this at the beginning of and possibly at other times throughout practice.
The Twisters fall ball team is made up of 8 and 9 year-olds, and two coaches. I’d like to ask if there are any willing parents to volunteer as an assistant coach. It is very helpful to have three adults on the field for each practice and game. If you’re interested, let me know and I will connect you with the league. *Bonus! The lucky parent who signs up by Sunday will receive a coveted Minnetonka baseball cap and coaches T-shirt :)
Practices will be Wednesday’s from 6pm-7:30pm @ Bennett, Field 4.
Our first practice is NEXT WEEK, August 26th!
Please use the SSU Play app to let me know your player’s availability for practices and games. This helps a lot when setting the lineup. Also, this app will be my main form of communication for team news.
I look forward to meeting and seeing everyone next week! Please reach out with any questions.
