SPRING TRAINING ON THE HORIZON! ONLY 33 DAYS TO GO BEFORE OPENING DAY!
Dear Parents and Players
The purpose of this message is to update you regarding the preparations for our 2010 TP House League Baseball season and when you should expect to hear from us. I’ve attached the Toronto Playgrounds Houseleague Baseball 2010 Division Schedule so that you can remind yourselves of the days and times that your child’s (or children’s) division(s) play and practice. It is important to note that during the pre-season, while we will do our best to stick to the days listed on the division schedule, you may have some practices on days that you won’t have during the regular season. This happens because we want to give each team at least 3 practices before the regular season starts. Our 2010 regular season begins on Tuesday, May 25th ( the day after the Victoria Day holiday weekend).
The Regular Season schedules will be completed and sent to you and posted on the Toronto Playgrounds Baseball website by Monday, May 17th at the latest.
Our uniform pick-up days are scheduled for Tuesday, May 18th; Wednesday, May 19th and Thursday, May 20th in the Alex Duff Building, which is the building in Christie Pits attached to the outdoor pool. We’ll be confirming the times for you by May 14th.
The Tee Ball teams will be put together by Monday, May 3rd, and you’ll be contacted by May 5th with the date and time of your first practice along with the name of your team and the coach. Practices will start the week of May 10th and will take place at the tee ball diamond at the north end of Bickford Park. We will try to schedule each team for three pre-season practices, realizing that not everyone will necessarily be able to make it out to each one.
For the Rookie Ball, Mosquito, Peewee, and Bantam divisions we will hold evaluation sessions before making the teams. We do this so that we can make the teams as balanced as possible. The evaluation sessions for the rookie ball, mosquito, and peewee players will take place on Saturday, May 1st and Sunday, May 2nd (don’t worry, each player will only have to come out on one of the two days!). You will be contacted by Tuesday, April 27th and told which day and time we’d like your son or daughter to come out. The evaluations will take place at Christie Pits, and we’ll meet in the outfield between diamonds 2 and 3 (beside the outdoor pool). The Rookie Ball, Mosquito, and Peewee teams will be put together by Tuesday, May 4th, and you’ll be contacted by May 6th with the date, time, and location of your first practice along with the name of your team and the coach. Practices will start on Saturday, May 8th, and we will try to schedule each team for three pre-season practices, realizing that not everyone will necessarily be able to make it out to each one.
For the Bantam players, evaluations will take place the morning of Saturday, May 8th at Christie Pits diamond #1. You’ll be contacted by May 4th and told the time that we’d like you to come out on the 8th. Teams will be put together on May 8th and you’ll be contacted on May 9th with the date, time, and location of your first practice along with the name of your team and coach. Practices will begin on Monday, May 10th at 6:00 pm.
At this point, I’d like to thank you for deciding to join our TP House League Baseball program for the 2010 season, and we hope that it’s a great experience for you and your child (children). The TP Baseball Committee and I will do everything we can to try to make sure that everyone enjoys playing ball in 2010!!
