Varsity

For the fifth year in a row the varsity baseball team has wrapped up a winning season. Sectionals starts this week and it is still not official but it looks like the first round game will be played at Buckland Park on Tuesday evening 7 pm vs. Spencerport.

JV/V Banquet

Just a reminder to save the date of May 31st for the banquet. Dinner starts at 6 pm at the Buckland Park lodge. All JV and varsity players and families are invited to attend.

JV

The JV team made it to double digit wins again this year. They finish up their season on Monday in Hilton. They have been a fun team to watch this year and I look forward to working with these guys again this off season.

Freshman

The freshman team plays in a tough league against some big schools but they have been holding their own. Some pics of the team in action below.

Modified B

The modified team is having a successful season. Right now they are 3-0 vs. Pittsford schools and doing really well against the others as well. There are 18 of them and every single player contributes.

Player Meetings

I will be setting up an individual meeting with every player in the program. I do this each year with the high schoolers and now this year I am going to add in the middle school kids as well since we have a 10th period in which to have the meetings. We go over their season and the thoughts they have on it (good, bad or ugly). We discuss short and long term goals as well. We do this now and then we meet again in December/January at our Sunday morning sessions to check in and see if we are on pace and doing everything possible to try and meet the goals the player has set. We will meet earlier in the fall as well if needed.

The Off Season

Hard to believe that we have to start planning for the off season already. The next newsletter will have more information but for now be sure to plan on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings 8-8:55 am in the BHS weight room. This is for ALL Baron baseball players 7th-12th grade. YES the players should be in the weight room on game day. Major leaguers lift on game day and we are lifting early enough where the boys will recover in time to have no effect on their performance.


Our fall program will have a bit of a different look and info regarding that will be out in a couple of weeks.
