March 17th, 2019

What a week of baseball.  The weather finally turned (70 degrees on Thursday!!) and we were able to get outside on the field for practice twice during the week.  Additionally, 16 players made the trip to Sandusky Saturday to scrimmage.  The week ahead shows warming temperatures each day and an plenty of opportunities for all players in the program to showcase and fine tune their skills while also working to become more complete baseball players.

It should be a great week for baseball and also for the program as Purse Bingo is finally here on Friday which will be a fun night for everyone with great prizes.  I want to give a huge thank you to Renee Kenneally for all her help organizing the event and to all who have been involved along the way.  The proceeds from the event will really help both the baseball and volleyball programs this year and in the near future.

Here is the schedule for the week ahead:

Purse Bingo: Friday March 22nd 6:00 PM @ the Links at Firestone Farms

  • We are still looking for raffle baskets for the event.  If you have one or are willing to make one please contact Coach Wolf or Renee Kenneally so we can get a count of how many prizes we will have.
  • If you are in need of any more tickets please contact Coach Wolf ASAP as there are still a few available but the number is very limited.

L&M Greenhouse Gift Card Sale: March 1st-March 31st

  • We are selling $20 gift cards to L&M Greenhouse starting in March.   Players have been given a form for orders to take home.
  • The cards will be delivered at the beginning of April just before L&M officially opens.  L&M is a great facility with very nice flowers and items for spring and we highly recommend getting your spring/summer flowers from them.  They have been a great supporter of our program so if you plan to purchase flowers this spring/summer why not choose L&M and get your gift card from the baseball program.

Canal Park

We will be playing a varsity game at Canal Park in Akron (Home of the Cleveland Indians AA affiliate Akron Rubberducks) on April 28th at 4 PM.  We have been scheduled to play Western Reserve Academy.  Admission to the game will be free but we will be selling tickets for future Rubberducks games at $5 apiece.  The Rubberducks will be giving a $500 scholarship to a senior player in the program and if we are able to sell enough tickets, the program will also be giving a $500 scholarship.
