2020 Varsity Pirate Baseball Classic Champs
Great Oak Baseball Families,
I am happy to say that we are allowed to conduct baseball tryouts next week for all levels. The tryouts will be Tuesday, February 16th - Friday, February 19th from 3:00 - 4:45 at the varsity field. Please arrive a little before for the check in process. As we are currently doing for practice, all players will be asked the Covid health questions and have their temperature checked prior to entering the field. All players must be athletically cleared through Home Campus in order to attend. Also, each player must wear baseball clothes and bring his own drink.
Athletes will be evaluated on aspects of hitting, fielding, arm strength, speed, and comments on attitude, work ethic, and other intangibles. At the end of tryouts on Friday, a coach will talk to each player to let them know if they made the team or not.
If you are unable to attend tryouts due to participation in another fall high school sport on campus (football, water polo, cross country) or you are having Covid issues, YOU MUST contact Coach Morton via email at email@example.com to let him know you will be trying out this year. It is very important to communicate this to arrange a tryout period when your sport is over.
This year is very unique with everything going on and has really changed the way we have done tryouts compared to years past. What's important to understand is that a player who makes the cut after next Friday will not be cut at a later time when athletes from other sports come out. This does not mean that the Varsity, JV, and Frosh rosters will be finalized because some rosters may fluctuate this year.
Finally, our season is set to start on March 20 against Norco. This is just a reminder that players are not able to play both high school baseball and travel ball after that first game of March 20 and that lasts until the season is over on May 26, or until the varsity is finished with playoffs.
Feel free to email me with any questions.
