OFF-SEASON
What are the details that I need to know about pre-season workouts?Preseason workouts are led by team captains and usually take place every Monday and Wednesday immediately after school. Meet in the batting cages underneath the football bleachers. Practices typically run ~ 1hr. Bring your glove and athletic clothing, as well as bat and batting gloves if desired.
Preseason weightlifting usually begins in January. Weightlifting happens before school in the Ingraham Weight Room.
______________________________________________________________
Will there be cuts made after tryouts?
This sport is cut (some athletes will be cut and not make the team).  Coaches will determine whether the numbers will support a 3rd JVC team in addition to Varsity and JV.

Equipment athletes should bring to tryouts:
Baseball clothes, molded cleats, glove.  Metal cleats for pitching only, since we are a turf field.

When does the season start and end?
Rams baseball will start in early March, on the first day of Spring sports (March 2, 2020).  Games will begin about 2 weeks later, mid-March.  The regular season usually ends in early May with post-season games following.  

THE TEAM WILL PLAY GAMES DURING SPRING BREAK –please do not plan vacations during that time.

What is the usual practice/game time and locations?
Practices are every day after school ~4:00pm - 6:00pm (TBD) on the baseball field south of campus.  Once games begin, the games will be Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  There are some Saturday practices and some Saturday games.  Games happen at Ingraham (called the Northwest Athletic Complex) and other high schools in the Metro League.

 email address or cell number for updates/alerts.
Is there transportation provided by the school for games played away from school?
If Varsity is scheduled for a home game, JV will play an away game. Players will travel for away games by school bus to or pre-planned carpool.  Parents will need to coordinate with the coach(es) in advance of an away game if their son will not be riding with the team on the bus.

Will the athletes miss any class time due to away games? If so, how is that situation coordinated between teachers and the athletic department?
Away game departure times and home game prep, often result in players leaving school early. With the later school start, school buses are shared among the school district for teams and students. Coaches submit team early dismissal lists through Ms. Huffer and the athletics office, but players MUST be responsible to get their work completed and be aware of what’s due.

How will athletes and parents receive communication about last minute changes regarding games schedules, transportation, rainouts, etc?
