Good Evening Faye & Associates,

 

Wanted to share some this week’s updates which include;

 

Practices for the Week:

  • 7:00pm Tuesday at Manitou

This weekend’s Games:

  • 2:00pm Saturday at Bennett 5
  • 2:30pm Sunday at Bennett 5

Picture Make-Up:

  • We will meet Saturday, May 8th at 1:00pm at Kemmetmueller Studio
    • 18336 Minnetonka Blvd of Deephaven
  • Photos will occur outside behind the studio
  • We will proceed directly to Bennett after for our 2:00pm game at Bennett so please be there promptly 

Picture Ordering

  • Important – I will forward your individual email for each player directly from Kemmetmueller indicating that their photos are ready to view/order
  • What happened to paper order forms? Due to COVID, paper order forms are not being used, and most photo studios have shifted to 100% online orders.
  • What are the benefits? Direct shipping as well as the ability to select image from gallery of options, more product options for ordering
  • Why am I forwarding the email to you in lieu of direct from Kemmetmueller? The MBA values your privacy, therefore they do not give out parent/guardian emails to vendors.

Cheering Info:

As I did not receive any feedback, feel free to snag a picture of the table or print to aid in supporting the boys during games:)

Good Evening Faye & Associates!

Welcome aboardJ  I will be supporting our coaches, Brian, Mark, Stuart and of course your son as team manager.  Wanted to outline some details as we begin the season.  As you know we are weather dependent for outdoor activities.  Subsequently practices/games may require rescheduling.  Please be sure to leverage MBA communications, including SportsSignUpPlay.  Further, we will leverage GroupMe for texting last minutes changes as well as any general communications.     

 

Dates to Remember:

Our first game is Friday, April 23rd at 5:30pm against Sky Chairs at Bennett Field 5

Pictures on April 24th, schedule detail forthcoming

Opening Day on May 1st at Bennett Pavillion

MBA Golf Event on June 21st at Deer Run Golf Course

 

Uniforms:

Uniform turnaround is always tight, distribution of jersey and hat will be just prior to our first game and hopefully at Tuesday’s practice.  If not, we may be distributing just prior to Friday’s game.  Reminder to purchase at least one pair of gray baseball pants as these are required with a belt, jersey and hat for games.  Additionally, to avoid mix-ups we are personalizing your son’s baseball cap.  The $5.00 charge will be included with our seasonal costs which I typically collect near the end. 

 

Communications: 

I will post communications on the bulletin and push via email.  In the event you need to refer to a deleted email you can find on our team bulletin board throughout the season.  If you are not receiving emails, please review your MBA profile to verify and/or add your email address(s).  Note that the coaches nor I have the authority to modify your MBA profile. 

The second application I would advise using is SportsSignUpPlay.  If you do not have, search for Sports Sign Up Play in te APP Store.  You should already see Faye & Associates assigned.  If you are seeing last season’s team, simply select the team and it should refresh.  If you are not seeing or only seeing prior year team, please formally sign out and sign back into the application.  If you continue to have issues, please reach out.  We leverage this application for RSVPs, schedules, scores as well as our roster.  This is the only APP that automatically updates from the MBA website with game/practice information. 

Lastly, I created a GroupMe text for the team to leverage impromptu messaging.  Again, the group is titled Faye & Associates 2021.  Please message within to confirm you are receiving texts. 

 

Practices:

Our practices vary by week, please be sure to leverage League Athletics SportsSignUpPlay ap or MBA website to track the latest information. 

 

Season Team Kickoff:

AS we want to continue being COVID conscientious Brian will outline season details via email in lieu of a group meeting.  Should you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Brian directly at brian.hruby@gmail.com

 

Volunteer Shift Requirements:

Every family needs to sign up for 1 volunteer shift per player.  The MBA website will manage volunteer shift signups.  Once games are scheduled I will email with further details.  Please note they have expanded beyond concessions to support additional opportunities to support 2 local tournaments run by the MBA this season.    

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at or call/text at 612-812-8759.  Thanks and I look forward to seeing you at the games!
