Coach Dale, Coach Dan and Coach Pat
A few safety items for the upcoming season:
1. No player may have a bat in their hand until they are at the plate. On their way to plate or at the plate they may take some practice swings. We may need parent help with this at younger levels.
2. All players must complete and bring to their coaches at the first practices this Medical Release form. Coaches must keep these forms in the equipment bags in case of emergency. These forms are NOT collected by the league so please do not email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Specific additional safety information will be provided by coaches through their division heads.
