Coach (2018):  Nick Piotrowski

Coaching Philosophy
:  The goal of summer baseball is for the boys to continue to work on their skills while practicing and getting repetitions.  Each player will play in almost every game that they attend.  However, the amount of playing time is still earned based on the coaches evaluation of skill, attitude, attendance, performance and execution.  These areas of evaluation may not be evident to the parent from the stands (for instance, the player may constantly miss signs given by the coach that the parent is not aware of).  

Games
:  The A's will play in the Prospects League and play around 12-16 regular season games, plus 3 local tournaments.   Additional tournaments, if decided, will be divided up among all the players

Roster:  14-16 players (approx.) including/plus potential pitcher only (P.O.) at the coach's discretion.  Players may have the opportunity to play with the showcase team on an as needed basis.

2018 Team Tuition:  Approximately $1,250 plus uniform.  The tuition is broken down into three categories 1)  Monthly Player Fee  2)  Team expenses  3)  Uniform
