Domenic Torchio, Cj Rutledge, Cam Eaton
Our First two Practices Will be Tuesday 3/21 and Tuesday 3/28.both 7:15-8:30 at Extra innings in Watertown 100
Parker St Reminders from the league will follow soon, The season Schedule should be up in a week or so.
We have a squad of 13 players. In order to balance the playing time I will plan Lineups, Pitchers, Catchers and position Charts in advance. I do expect we will have conflicts due to High School JV games and AAU Games. Players are expected to prioritize town games over AAU practices as we do not have games on the same night every week. If You have a conflict and can not make a game or practice please give me as much notice as possible, this will allow me time to get callups if needed. I can be reached by text, email or through the reply on the practice and game notifications through league athletics. We will be playing during April Vacation and Our Season playoffs will end by 6/24 Please consider These date when planning vacations. This is the normal week we end the playoffs but with the lack of snow days school is set to get out early this year. If anyone is not around at the end of the season please let me know.
Equipment, Metal Cleats are allowed at this level. Cups are mandatory for any Catcher. If purchasing new pants this year we will be wearing White pants. Bats must be BBCOR for any player 14 and up. First year 13yo only can use a BBCOR or -5 usa bat if they prefer. -10 bats and USSSA Bats are not allowed in Babe Ruth.
The Glare at 1st base can be nasty depending on the time of year, if your player has sunglasses, keeping a set with their gear is a good idea.
Playing time and Player/Parent expectations. While all players will play and bat, playing time will be based on players Ability, Attitude and Attendance. All players who show up on time will play in the game. Players who show up late or do not RSVP will be worked into the lineup as best I can. Any questions related to playing time, positions or coaching decisions should be saved till the next day. I have no problem discussing or answering parents' questions but during the game I will not be able to give you my attention.
Lastly, please do not coach from outside the fence. When these guys are at bat they have plenty to think about and one more voice has never helped a batter hit.
Looking forward to Meeting and working with the team!
