Welcome to Poston Butte Broncos Baseball
FALL BASEBALL INFORMATION
Poston Butte baseball players:
Fall Ball 2013 is right around the corner and the Bronco coaching staff would like to hit the ground running. In order to prepare for the upcoming season, we would like to provide some expectations and guidelines ahead of time to help prepare for the future.
Teams: We will have 2 teams playing for Poston this fall. There will be a team of handpicked players that will represent our highest level of competition and a second team of developmental players. It is very important to determine our interest and numbers for the fall. The Bronco coaching staff asks that all players interested that did NOT participate in summer San Tan Valley legion baseball to send an email expressing their interest to Coach Stevens at email@example.com. Please include your name, grade level, and phone number that can receive text updates.
Schedule: The length of the season will approximately follow this schedule: the developmental team will play mostly on Saturday mornings throughout the month of September to mid-October. The higher level team will also play mostly on Saturday mornings throughout the month of September to mid-October and then will embark on a series of weekend tournaments beginning in mid-October through potentially the month of December. Both teams will practice at least twice a week during the season. More specific dates will follow when the calendar is fully scheduled and completed.
Attire: Players will be in baseball pants and caps. NO cutoff T-shirts will be permitted. Only shirts with sleeves will be allowed. When practicing outside, cleats should be worn on the field. Each player should also have a pair of running shoes with them during each practice. If practice is being held inside, clean tennis shoes are the acceptable footwear. Players should wear clothing that is appropriate for practice. Clothing displaying offensive language or images is unacceptable. All athletes are expected to dress like ball players with hats worn correctly facing forward and no hair exposed under the front of the cap. Each athlete should bring water to practice every day. Game shirts will be provided as part of the participation fee.
Cost: The cost of playing for the developmental team will be $100. The cost of playing for the higher level team will be $175. Payments for Fall Ball can be submitted to Mrs. Elizabeth Mefford through either credit card payment, cash or check. Checks may be made payable to “Poston Butte Baseball Booster Club”. As a second option, players may bring their exact payment in the form of check or cash (if only option) to Coach Stevens at Open Field. Fall Baseball is PAY To PARTICIPATE so please begin arranging finances to allow the opportunity to take the field during a game.
The Bronco baseball program is ready to pick up where we have left off with our returning players and welcome in our new freshmen! I am looking forward to the development of each player. Once again, it’s time to get to work.
