Summer Season Update

Tee Ball, Coach Pitch, and Rookie Parents,


Teams:

Teams are in the process of being loaded into the website.  Rookies and Coach Pitch are loaded (you should see your child’s placement), and I am wrapping up Tee Ball (viewable tonight or tomorrow morning).  We honored as many teammate and coach request placements as possible. There were a few we could not honor due to high demand and limited space.


If you have a concern about your child’s placement, please email me as soon as possible - the uniform order goes out Sunday night.  You also have until Sunday to place Friends and Family jersey/hat orders. I’ll send out a separate email with reminder details about that.


Schedule:

As previously communicated, summer season practices start June 4 and games start June 18.  All play will be completed by the end of July.


Tee Ball runs Monday-Wednesday-Friday.  Coach Pitch and Rookies are Tuesday-Thursday-Friday.  Once games start, there are 2 games a week, with Fridays reserved for practices and rainout makeups.  Practice times are 5:30, 6:30, or 7:30, and game times are 5:30 and 7. We keep Tee Ball on the earlier times as much as possible.  Practices and games are held at Bicentennial Park or East/West Middle School in Grand Blanc.


Specific team schedules are not known until our complete schedule is built.  We have 32 teams across 5 different divisions in our summer season - it's a lot to organize!  We also have to coordinate our field use with Parks and Rec activities. When the schedules are built, you will be able to view them from your account on the website.  For now, you know the nights of play; make a note of the possible times listed above.


Equipment:

All male players, regardless of age, MUST wear a protective cup.  All players should have their own glove. Coach Pitch and Rookies players should have cleats.  Cleats are recommended for Tee Ball, but not required. Coaches have batting helmets, as well as bats that adhere to the new bat requirements.  Players may bring their own bat, as long as it adheres to the new bat requirements.
