I want to start this note by wishing everyone a pleasant and relaxing holiday weekend. I also want to take a moment to thank all of the young men who came out on Thursday to help clean up the field and to get it ready for skill development sessions starting next week.
I need to address a couple of other items. The 3rd Annual Jack Britt Baseball Golf Tournament has been moved to Sunday, October 25, 2015, at 100pm. It will still be held at Gates Four Golf and Country Club. The cost is $65.00 per player. There will be food and drinks as well as prizes before and after the tournament. If you have questions, please call Coach Dague at 910.429.2800 ext. 2222. Also, if you are interested in being a hole sponsor please let me know. Each hole sponsorship is just $100.00. The proceeds go to upgrades to the field and equipment.
Skill development will begin the week of September 7, 2015. Eight players will be selected to participate. Most of the players selected will be returners from the previous season. We will also begin our five-week conditioning session next week as well. Conditioning will take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday starting at 600pm. This is open to anyone interested in trying out for the team in the spring.
