3/31 Update

Updated Friday March 31, 2017 by John Hand.

There is something for everyone in here....

Saturday April 1

Triple A and Majors "Draft" Workouts are still on.  Time slots to be mailed immediately after this email.   If by chance the weather and roads look poor in the morning, we will email by 6:30am.  Snow date will be Sunday 4/2.

T-Ball Clinic is still on for Saturday 4/1 as well.  11am indoors at the Armory (pictured above.) 125 Washington Avenue 12305 in Schenectady.  All players and coaches are welcome, brothers and sisters are welcome too.  If you are Single A age, and want to attend that is ok too. 

Sunday April 2

Cal Ripken Travel team work outs are the time slots provided by your coaches at the Armory.

Single A Coaches Clinic...Coaches Only (Registered Managers and Assistants) is also at the Armory.  2pm to 3pm.

Double A Coaches Clinic...Coaches Only (Registered Managers and Assistants) is also at the Armory.  3pm to 4pm.

Thursday April 6

All recreation teams will be announced.  You will receive an email with your roster, team name and manager.   At that point your Team Manager will communicate tactically with you.   Everyone will continue to receive weekly league updates typically on Friday, with occasional ad hoc update emails.

Saturday April 8 at 9am

Snow melt permitting, this is field day.  We ask for volunteers to attend to set up the fields and hang sponsor banners.

Sunday April 9

Final scheduled Cal Ripken Travel team work outs indoors at the Armory.  Subject to change based on field conditions.

Other Notes:

Babe Ruth recreation level has been granted a waiver for 16 year olds to play if not playing school baseball for this season.  Register by Monday.   (This is to provide an outlet for these players this year, and leading into older level play we are developing for 2018.)

Also we will be solicting those interested in being Junior Umpires for AA Games from our Babe Ruth level, and will be seeking scorekeepers, announcers and field prep helpers for the Babe Ruth field.  More to come on that.

The recreation baseball season will start no earlier than the Monday after Spring Break, with most games starting Saturday April 29.

Thank you
