Baseball Try-Outs 2010

We will be holding try-outs for the 2010-2011 Jr. High Baseball Team Wednesday, Dec. 1st and Thursday, Dec. 2nd. Athletes must be present both days of try-outs to make the team, unless they are playing basketball for the school. Athletes should report to the baseball field directly after school, and try-outs will last till about 4:30-5:00, depending on how many athletes we have come. Athletes also were given a form to be signed by their parents that should be turned in by the start of try-outs. Failure to do this will result in not making the team. We encourage everyone to try-out, but remember that we cannot keep everyone. Cuts will be made after Thursday, and the team roster should be posted at school on Friday. We hope to see you there and Good Luck.
