[Apr 01 2019]   Triple A Minors -- April Indoor Practice Series

April is here, which means it's baseball time.  Our registration numbers are looking strong, so we're sure to have a great season.  Let's get it started on a good foot with our April Indoor Practice series, starting this Wednesday evening.

The Indoor Practices will take place for Triple A Minors at Lincolnville Central School on Wednesdays in April, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, April 3  (no bats, please)
  • Wednesday, April 10  (no bats, please)
  • Wednesday, April 24  (bring your bats and helmets, if you wish)

We have nearly 50 kids signed up so far.  So, we're splitting the group into two one-hour sessions, as follows:

  • Player's last name begins with A-K, please come from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
  • Player's last name begins with L-Z, please come from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Please bring clean sneakers (no muddy outdoor shoes on the gym floor) and your baseball glove!

Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your assigned time and wait in the hallway until the coaches welcome you in.  We hope to have someone checking players in and handing out nametags.  Please help with this process to the greatest extent possible.

We hope to have a 15 minute parents meeting in the cafeteria during each hour.  Please stay tuned for this and we'll do our best to explain how the season will shake-out and answer any questions. 

Answering the most popular question now:  Teams will be organized over the next three weeks and announced at the final Indoor Practice on August 24.  We cannot promise all "buddy request" will be accommodated, but we will do our best. 

[Apr 01 2019]   Double A Minors - Pre-Season Indoor Practice Series

  • Sunday, April 14  (no bats, please)
