Coach Pitch Tonight
by posted 09/27/2021

Good morning!

 

Tonight I am planning on starting coach pitch with the boys. I know that we did not practice this but we will see how it goes. If you would be able to prep your boys prior to the game and just let them know that we will be doing coach pitch, hopefully they can be mentally prepared for it and know what to expect.

 

I will plan on pitching 4 pitches to the kids. If they do not hit the ball on the 4 pitches then we will bring the tee out. This seems to be consistent with the rest of the league. 

 

If you do NOT want me to pitch to your athlete and would rather them hit off of the tee right away, please let me know and we can make that happen!

 

We have 4 games left, hopefully the weather will hold out for the next two weeks and we can get all of our games in.

 

I will see you all tonight!

9/25 Game
by posted 09/24/2021

Good morning,

 

Just a reminder of our upcoming game on Saturday, 9/25 @ noon on field 3, the same field we have been playing on.

 

Coach Ben is not able to make it to the game. Is there anyone who might be able to help me out Saturday? Responsibilities would mainly be making sure the kids are behaving in the dugout while we hit, getting the kids who are about to bat ready to bat, and then making sure the kids are in the correct positions in the field. I have a lineup card ready to go. Please email me or text me if you're willing to help!

 

Thank you!

Good morning!

 

Here is an update on our snack schedule-

Monday, 9/20 (Today) - Kal

Saturday, 9/25 - Adrian

Monday, 9/27 - Micah

Saturday, 10/2 - Jack

 

If you haven't been added to the snack schedule and would like to, please email/text me so I can add you on! If you cannot bring snack for the date I have you down, please let me know as well.

 

So far we are split on whether to do coach pitch or continue off of the tee. I'm still waiting to hear from a few parents on this topic so if you haven't already done so, please let me know if you are in support of switching to coach pitch! See my previous post for more details on this.

 

For today, we will continue to hit off of the tee.

 

Thank you all for supporting our kids each and every game! We will see you all tonight.

Uniforms/Hats and Coach Pitch
by posted 09/15/2021

Good morning!

 

Our uniforms and baseball hats are in! I picked them up yesterday and they look great. I will bring them to our game on Saturday and distribute them as everyone shows up. If you can, please arrive to the game a bit early to help with this process.

 

According to the league rules, it is highly recommended not to do coach pitch until after the first two weeks of games. I know we have played teams so far that have done coach pitch with some limited success. My focus right now for our next two games is to continue to support our athletes in, first, getting in our batting stance and then have a nice, even swing, keeping our heads down and eyes on the ball while hitting off of the tee. Hopefully this will provide a nice foundation as the season continues.

 

With this in mind, please let me know if you are in support of switching to coach pitch starting September 25. I would toss 3 pitches, and if there are 3 swings and misses then I will bring the out the tee. A couple things to consider: 

1) Not every athlete will have success with coach pitch every single at bat, or possibly not at all. We have kids who just recently turned 4 and then some 5 year olds who are much more developed.

2) As you may have noticed with the other teams, coach pitch will slow down the game and will not provide the athletes with as many at-bats per game. We have a 1-hour time limit, and no more.

3) We did not practice any coach pitch during our practices earlier in the season as I did not know we would be having teams doing coach pitch at all, let alone this quickly. Therefore, if we switch to coach pitch I would recommend practicing it a bit at home if able.

 

Please let me know if you are in support, or not, of switching to coach pitch starting September 25. 

 

Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing from you!
