Hi Team!

Me again! Sorry for the multiple emails.

Chris and I are wondering if 6-6:30 pm works for everyone tonight instead? If so, please plan to meet at 6 pm at the Bennett Pavilion/Parking Lot closest to Pavilion. If that doesn't work and some of you can't come until 6:30, that's fine. I'll have Chris update this on the schedule too.

Thank you!! Kristen

Morning Team Blue 10A!!

Just a reminder to those of you who haven't replied about the Proctor tournament to please do so. Some of you reached out and said you were having difficulty with the poll, so please just email me if you're able to attend or not. I will reserve a block of rooms and give more detail on this once I have a head count. My email is kristenmcc29@gmail.com.

Also, just a reminder about the uniform try on and meet & greet tonight. It's at 6:30 pm at the Bennett pavilion or in the parking lot directly next to the pavilion. It sounds like Umpire training is happening tonight too, so exact location is a little TBD right now.

*Please note that you can purchase your baseball pants at Hanus Sports.

Lastly, if you haven't already sent me or coach Chris your player's Birth Certificate, please do so at the email above.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing many of you tonight!

Hello Team Blue 10 A!!

I hope you are all enjoying the start to your Spring Break!

I wanted to reach out and introduce myself. My name is Kristen McCormick, and I will be helping as your team manager this Spring. My son Parker is on the team and attends Saint Therese. We are looking forward to playing for coaches Chris Vitale, Dan Campion, & Chris Novogratz, and getting to know all the players and parents we have yet to meet. We have a ton of baseball ahead of us, so let’s make it a fun and safe season!

Couple important updates for all of you.

Birth Certificates -

The Metro Baseball League requires us to have a copy of each player’s birth certificates on hand for all tournaments. Please either scan or take a photo of the certificate and send it to either coach Chris or me to keep on file. We will not share any info and will either return or destroy these at your request at the end of the season.

 

Out of Town Tournament –

In addition to the local tournaments, we have been given the opportunity to play in an out-of-town tournament in Proctor, MN (near Duluth) the weekend of June 25-27. See details in the links below. We need to register for this soon and will need to block out hotel rooms in advance.

https://www.proctorbaseball.org/proctorclassic

https://www.bestwestern.com/en_US/book/hotels-in-duluth/best-western-plus-spirit-mountain-duluth/propertyCode.24141.html 

I will be sending out a poll for everyone to fill out later today. If most of the team can attend, then I can work on reserving a block of rooms. The other 10 A team will be playing in this tournament as well.

 

Sports Sign Up Play App –

If you have yet to sign up for this app, please consider doing so asap. It is a great resource for team messaging and includes the times and locations for practices, games, & tournaments. You can also RSVP for upcoming practices and games through the app as well.

See link below to register. I sent an email reminder to those of you who have not yet signed up.

Practices –

We will have 1-2 practices scheduled each week starting the week of April 12th. See list of practices released below. These are on the MBA and the Sports Sign Up site as well. I am guessing they will add more practices to the site, and I plan to keep you updated as they do. Directions to practice fields are in the links below the practice times.

Tuesday 4/13 – 5:30-6:45pm Freeman 1 (Maynard’s) – Cages

Wed April 4/14 – 7-8:30pm Thorpe 2

Tournaments –

  1. Friday 5/14-Sunday 5/16 – Prior Lake Tournament *Details to follow.

  4. Friday 6/11-Sunday 6/13 – Shakopee Tournament https://shakopeeyouthbaseball.sportngin.com/page/show/61570-shakopee-tournament

*Please note for all tournaments that the games could start as early as Friday afternoon, and continue (time depending) into both Saturday and Sunday for up to 5 total games.

*State Tournaments begin the weekend of 7/9. As coach Chris stated, we will most likely play in one of these.

 

**Uniforms –

Our travel jerseys are ready for pick up!! I plan to grab these from Bennett field next Tuesday, 4/6 at 6 pm. Coach Chris and I thought it would be a good idea for all of us to get together at the Pavilion there between 6:30-7 pm for both a quick meet/greet and to try on the uniforms. We need to turn in our roster info and the unused jersey’s no later than Saturday 4/10, so please let me know if you will not be able to attend.

*Please note that you can purchase your baseball pants at Hanus Sports. I swung in this past weekend and they are getting low on youth medium, so if you have not already purchased these, you might want to go sooner than later.

 

Sorry for the lengthy email and please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you and GO Team Blue 10A!!
