Team,

Quick note - there is one more opening for the Hitting league, visit the Playballohio.com to learn more and sign up.

G.R.I.P. on Saturday night from 6:00 - 7:30 - Have your kids bring a friend to this unique opportunity to have fun, food and competition and learn a positive message that they might find interesting.  With all of the negative messages that our kids hear every day, why not allow them to have some positive input while having fun?  Donation - $5 for a single or $7 for a player and a friend. 

Open House on Sunday from 4:30 - 7:00 - After consulting the NFL schedule, I decided to have the open house at this time for everyone's convenience.  Individual team meetings are listed below.  We will show you how to get the most out of your individual membership by learning how to read the online schedule for openings, how to get into the building, turn on the lights, lock/unlock the door and most importantly which thermostat buttons NOT to touch.  We will also show you how to use the pitching machines.  I will be happy to answer any questions you may have during this time. 

Team meeting times - A couple of the coaches are unavailable this weekend so we will schedule the appropriate team meetings for next weekend.  Listed below is the schedule.  This primary goal of this meeting is for the players and parents to meet the coach and their new teammates.  There will be several subjects discussed including; how to earn playing time, what the coaches are looking for at practices, what it means to have a good attitude, how the Varsity and JV process will work (13u and 14u only) and a few other items.  Questions will be taken.  I would like to keep the meeting to 30-45 minutes.  If you cannot make the meeting, just let me know and we will find another time to introduce you to the coach.

10u/11u - Coach Larry Stepp - will be at Browns game so this meeting will occur the following weekend - DAY AND TIME TBD.
12u - Coach Larry Marshall - will be out of town so this meeting will occur the following weekend - DAY AND TIME TBD
13u JV - Coach Rich Jovanovich - all 13u players will meet THIS SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH, at 5:00
13u Varsity - Coach Andy Johns all 13u players will meet at THIS SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH, at 5:00
14u JV  - Coach Dan Deleandro - all 14u players will meet at THIS SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH, at 6:00
14u Varsity - Coach Dante Sabatucci - THIS SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH, at 6:00
15u - Coach Scott Koenig - 15u players will meet at the end of practice on SATURDAY DECEMBER 9TH AT 4:30.

We are all very excited about the upcoming season.  We have added some good ballplayers to the organization and I am excited to see the competition for playing time begin (actually it already has at QuEST).  As always, let me know of any questions.

NOTE:  I want to make mention of the fact that some of the players have been goofing around at QuEST and distracting the other players.  Once of the items I specifically mentioned when the players were invited to the team is that they are not to be a distraction to other players during practice or games.  Keith asked for my permission to begin instituting "reminders" to those players who are distracting their teammates during QuEST.   Please mention this to your sons as they will not like the types of REMINDERS that Keith has at his disposal.  We encourage goofing around before or after QuEST or practice but not during. 

Dante
