Excellent start to the season! Great to see so many smiling faces out there, trying hard, and playing like carefree kids out there. Warmed my soul for sure.
A couple things to please talk to your kids about and get back to me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 857-891-3173). We obviously don’t have the luxury of practices or team huddles before and/or after games so this means of communication will have to do:
1) Pitchers... I do intend to have everyone pitch who wants to pitch (that last part is important). Please ask if/when they would feel comfortable pitching. I’m guessing the answers might range and we will try to accommodate. Please let me know what your son says.
2) Catchers... likewise, this position is not for everyone but I don’t want to always put the same kids behind the plate. This is a tough one if your son has never caught before so if he’s interested, please also let us know if he’s done it before so we can perhaps show him a few things before putting him in.
3) Practice... we are going to write the League and see if there’s a chance for an optional practice on Sunday. Please let me know if interested and when you are available. I think even getting together to throw and take some practice swings will go a long way.
I look forward to hearing from you
Ryan, Steve, Trish, and Mike
