As the first nine weeks comes to a close I wanted to send out a quick update as to where we are as a baseball program. We have made it 1/4 of the way through the school year which means we are closer to beginning the 2021 season.
I am putting the finishing touches on our winter workout plans. As with previous years we will hold open cages 2 days a week starting in December and pitching/catching clinics starting in January. Also, this year we will be lifting weights and doing speed work on the open cage days. I am working with the athletic department to ensure that all proper protocols are followed including cleaning protocols of the weightroom in the Mez. I will be holding a meeting with the players the second week of November during their lunches to hand out calendars and discuss our offseason and the 2021 season. This is a good time to meet as fall sports will be wrapping up and the winter season is just beginning. Also, in the meeting I’ll have tickets and more information for the players concerning our winter fundraiser, “31 Days of December.”
The varsity schedule is complete, outside of the PNC Park and Canal Park games, and can be found under the schedule tab. It is currently a .pdf document but I’ll add it into the site this week.
The JV schedule is currently at 29 games (we are allowed 27) but I try to schedule over at the moment knowing I’m going to lose 8-10 league games due to teams not having a JV squad. I am continuing to finalize and will try to add the tentative schedule to the site in the next few days.
We are kicking off our “31 Days of December” fundraiser shortly. This is a away to build some funds for our program while also raffling off a number of good prizes each day of the month of December. You can find more information about the fundraiser here.
That’s all for this short update. The 2020 World Series is continuing and is all even at 2 games apiece. Last night’s game was more proof that it isn’t over until the 27th out (21 in our case) is made as a wild play in the bottom of the 9th with two outs helped the Rays earn the victory.
Stay safe and Go Clippers!!!
