Important Notes

Now that we are getting into the training season, I will be sending out messages as often as I think it is necessary to keep you informed.  I've said in the past that I would rather over-communicate than under-communicate.   These Buzzsaws messages are in addition to the newsletter that comes from Play Ball Sports Academy so you may feel that some of the information is redundant.  NOTE:  ALL MESSAGES THAT I SEND TO BUZZSAWS WILL BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE.  You can visit the web-site under the Buzzsaws section and you will fine "recent announcements" where I will post all messages that I send to the entire group.  If there is a message that is sent to a certain age group only, it will be under that specific age group.  So if you aren't sure if you are up to date with information, you can check those two places to be sure. 

G.R.I.P. starts Saturday at 6:00 - As promised, we are beginning our optional program for those who want "more than baseball".  The G.R.I.P. (God Really Is Personal) program will be run by Ty Moorhead every other Saturday throughout the winter from 6:00 - 7:30.  GRIP is filled with action packed games, adventures, testimonies, music, baseball, and of course snacks!  We look forward to seeing you and your friends be part of this unique opportunity.  You do not need to sign up for G.R.I.P., you can simply show up.  The donation for the program is $5 for a single player or $7 for a player and a friend.  I am donating the facility for this program which means that all proceeds from this program will be used for the operations of the program and excess funds will be donated to Meeting God in Baseball.   Read more, click here.

Winter Hitting League  - Starting Saturday, December 8th, Play Ball Sports Academy will be offering its first bi-weekly Winter Hitting League Session.  This league is set up for three player teams to compete in a points system game within the batting cages.  Players can sign up as individual free agents or in teams of three.  This league will have weekly statisitcs of individual and team standings based on the points earned in the bi weekly schedule.  Prizes will be awarded to top performers and teams at the end of the first session.  Players can contact Ty Moorhead at 330·466·4748 or, starting today through Wednesday, December 5th.

Hitting Lessons from Ty Moorhead (schedule filling up) - Ty Moorhead (bio) is taking appointments for hitting lessons starting this coming Tuesday.  For now, Ty will only be offering lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday nights so reserve your time ASAP.  Ty is one of the premier hitters to graduate from the University of Akron and his ability to teach players the technical aspects of their swing to improve their power and average will yield results for hitters of all ages. To schedule your weekly lessons, contact Coach Dante by text message at (330) 714-0252.  If you feel brave enough, you can schedule the lessons through Mindbodyonline yourself by logging into your account. 

Catching and Pitching Programs starting this week (a few spots available) - There are three excellent programs starting this week. 
The Elite High School Pitchers Program - starts tonight and there is one spot available.  This program is designed to build strength and nasty stuff for current or near high school pitchers.  Click here to learn more.
The Hoover Catchers Program - there are two sessions starting on Thursday night and each has one spot available.  Click here to learn more.

Mindbody Error - Many of you have told me that you cannot find the "account payment" button when you login which led me to discover a mistake on my part. .  The "account payment" button I referred to is only available under certain conditions so ignore that advice.  Please check the web-site for more information about how to make an account payment online.  As always, contact me with any questions.
