Good Morning Sluggers,
I wanted to Welcome everyone to the team, as we are looking forward to a fun filled Fall Baseball season! As you may or may not be aware, the the season is set to start August 17th. We are still awaiting the game schedule, however, I will notify everyone once it has been posted. Please get familiar with the 3&2 site, as you can find information about our team, roster, schedule, etc.
Practices will be on Friday's, with our first practice taking place on August 9th at Shawnee Mission Park (7900 Renner Rd, Lenexa, KS 66219), from 6:00-7:15pm. I have attached maps to assist with locating the field. Per the field representative, we can use the field on a first come, first serve bases. In short, its free.
The league does not provide uniform jersey's for Fall Ball, however, I'm communicating with the league regarding any uniform jersey's they may have left over from the summer session. In short, I'll let everyone know more about jerseys at our 1st practice. Regarding baseball pants, we plan to wear white or gray pants bottoms. As for equipment, Parents must supply their little Slugger with a glove, as gloves are not provided. The league does supply some equipment for the team, such as; a few bats, some batting helmets, throw down bases, catcher's equipment and some baseballs. Feel free to bring your own bat as well.
For the first game, I’ll bring water, juice pouches and a snack for the team. If your little Slugger has any dietary needs/restrictions, please feel free to let me know prior to our first game. Going forward, we'll try to set up a sign up Genie so parents can sign up/rotate bringing game treats.
A big thanks goes out to Coach Justin and Coach Trey whom have graciously agreed to help assist the team with coaching duties! We have a sizable team, so if any other parents are interested in assisting with coaching duties, "Please" let me know!!!!!
Lastly, as I mentioned, attached is a diagram of where we will be plan to practice.
If you have any questions, please let me know. We can answer any questions you may have at practice as well. Once again, we thank you for letting us coach your little Sluggers!
Enjoy your weekend!
