WDHS Baseball Weekly Update

Week of May 2nd-9th

WEBSTORE UPDATE - HATS

If you ordered hats you may pick them up with Kristin in the main office. If your son is an 8th grader the freshman coaches will be picking them up and delivering them as soon as possible.

Weather Updates

It needs to stop raining. It is incredibly hard evaluating players when you don't have field time with them. Also, we only have two weeks before games so please be patient early in the season and give coaches time to give players practice opportunities to show what they can do. It may be a longer process than usual.

STRIKE OUT THE STIGMA

Western Dubuque HS Baseball will play in the Strike Out the Stigma-You Matter Mental Health Awareness & Prevention Game on May 25th at Prairie HS. Austin Byler, a 2x MLB Draft Pick and 2x All-American will speak between games. We will wear special jerseys & hats that evening. There is a webstore flyer pictrue if you want to support this great cause.

Epworth Centennial Park does not handle water well. Often times Freshman teams are last in line for the indoor facilities during the end of the spring sport activities. We have to patient and let those varsity teams have priority for facilities while they get ready for state tournament events.
