Hey guys, happy Wednesday! Just making sure everyone is aware that our practice is at Mt Etna fields today. We will have one next Monday that is at Hickman multi-use, but after that all practices going forward will be at Mt Etna it looks like. Please refer to the app whenever your not sure.
Also, we have a scrimmage game vs team Wilber this Saturday, also at Mt Etna. Please arrive at 2:30pm ready in full baseball attire, protective cup, etc. Note that only USA approved bats are allowed in Pony. PLEASE let me know asap if you cannot make the scrimmage so we can plan accordingly. Updating your status on the app or website really helps us plan, especially in game situations.
Word on the street is that uniforms are coming in this weekend and will be distributed the following weekend. As the treasurer Im asking all parents to get their registration fees in asap please so all our players will have full uniforms. There may also be a clinic or some bonus offered to the first team that has all players paid in, so lets get it!
If you are not on the SSU Play app, please get it installed on your phone! You may also need to logout and back in to see our team.
Make sure your players are studying baseball rules outside of our normal practices. Their homework was to know what "force-outs" are vs "tag-outs" as well as when you can advance on ground balls and when you have to stay on base with fly-outs. Mustang is a pretty big step for a lot of players, there are tons of rules and unique situations with stealing/pick-offs, dropped 3rd strikes, etc. The ball is always live is mustang.
Thanks everyone and see you at the field today at 4:30!
