Here are some reminders about a few upcoming dates as we get ready for opening day.
- During our practice on Monday, 5/1, we’ll plan to run an informal scrimmage with the Orioles. Hopefully the weather will permit so we can get some game-like action before the season starts.
- I’ve added a couple practices to the schedule for this week. We’ll plan to use the field nearest to the Blakewood Elementary school parking lot, or can move into the open field next to it if the baseball field is occupied.
- I’ll hand out the jerseys at the end of our next practice (hopefully tomorrow). Hats will be handed out at pictures next weekend.
- Our team pictures will be at 9AM on Saturday, 5/6, on the 1st base side of diamond 1 at LL field. Plan to be there 15 minutes early to get ready. I’ll hand out the picture forms at our next practice too. The opening day ceremonies will take place later on Saturday, starting with the parade. We’ll all need to arrive at Papa Luigi’s at 11:30. The parent information packet has the rest of the details for the day.
- Reminder to sign-up to volunteer at the concession stand. Details are in the parent packet as well, but our team days for volunteering are on May 25 and June 21.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
