CANCELLED: Cardinals Practice Session #2
BEGIN UPDATE 01
Due to the weather we will NOT be holding practice today. I typically wait until an hour before the designated time to send out any cancellations.
END UPDATE 01
Coach Tom and myself are looking to hold our 2nd practice session this Wednesday at Field #3 (near the Tee-ball and Softball fields). The session is booked for 75 minutes that should give us a good hour of practice.
Note: Gameday uniforms are NOT required. This way they stay clean for the next game. Dress the kids in comfotable play clothes, hats, cleats, support cup, and other required protection equipment. I'm requiring that they wear a baseball cap so they get used to having them on.
Objectives for the practice are:
Continue to get to know each other
Catching (Fielding) and throwing
Batting practice - setup, stance and swinging mechanics
Practicing situational scenarios
Plays to first (for now)
Communicating on the field - Backing up other players/positions
Hope to see everyone out there on Wednesday. Please let us know if you WILL or WILL NOT be able to make the practice session.

Correction made about Helmets. Updates are highlighted in RED.
END UPDATE 01
Team site and Equipment information:
Below is a a quick list to help everyone get started with the MR-LL season. If you have any questions, please reach out to myself or Tom for help. We will be looking to add additional practice sessions to get everyone comfortable with the team and be better prepared for game days.
MR-LL Website: Please check the MR-LL website for any news or updates for the season (http://mr-ll.org). I use the website to post messages and updates. Its a very good resource to keep everyone informed.
Uniforms and Equipment:The league will be providing hats, T-shirts, and socks to all the players, however, pants and belts willnotbe provided. Please look to select a light grey colored pair of pants for the 2020 season.
Stores to consider:
Dicks Sporting Goods| Walmart | Target | 5 & Below (has limited baseball equipment at very reasonable prices)
Cleats - Not required, but if you expect your child to be an active player then non-metalliccleats are a good addition. Cleats provide good traction when batting, running and fielding.
Helmets - Required that everyone buys thier own helmet. Note: The league will NOT provide supplemental helmets this season as it has done in the past.
Batting and Baseball Gloves: Take your time to get a baseball glove that fits your childs hand and that they have the strength to work the glove. Ensure that the glove is a comfortable fit. Battings gloves are optional, but do come in handy if your child is comfortable batting.
Baseball Game bag - Not necessary, but helps keep your equipment together and ready when you need it.
Game days: During the course of the season, we understand that everyone may not be able to make every practice or game. If you foresee that you will not be able to make practice or a game, please let me and Tom Rafael know as soon as you can to make any necessary adjustments.
Contact information: We can be contacted via email, cell or text
| Cell phone (609) 738-0090

As more information is made available, I will be reaching out to keep everyone updated. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime if you have any questions or concerns.
