All those who will be trying out but have not been participating in winter workouts are invited to attend the workout session on Saturday, 2/21 from 8:30 am-10:30 am in the bubble at Double Angel in Parker. This workout, like all off-season activities, is voluntary and the intention is to give all players a chance to knock off some rust for tryouts. Given the unpredictable nature of the weather in February this may be your best opportunity to get some good work in. There is no cost for this workout.
Regarding tryouts, each player must have a “golden” ticket to participate in tryouts. To get your ticket you must complete the athletic packet in it’s entirety and turn it in to the athletics office. If everything is complete and in good order you get your ticket. Remember, NO TICKET, NO TRYOUT, NO EXCEPTIONS. Please, get this done now, do not wait until the last minute. This is your responsibility.
This one is a little long this week, I apologize for that but I want to keep everyone up to date as we head into tryouts.
Next, please note that the week of 2/23 will be both busy and exciting. Tryouts begin that Monday, 2/23, and on that same day we will be having a mandatory meeting for parents in the Community Room at TJ, beginning at 5:30. Additionally, we will be having our annual breakfast and silent auction onSaturday, 2/28 from 9-11:30 in the cafeteria. Tickets for this event are $10 per person and each player must sell two tickets. Right after the breakfast we will head over to All City Stadium for a 1:00 scrimmage against Machebeuf, weather permitting.
With regards to the silent auction we are again asking for donations. We currently have items such as autographed baseballs, sporting event tickets, hand made jewelry, restaurant gift cards and even an overnight package to the Ameristar Hotel and Casino in Blackhawk.
Finally, we will be opening the spirit wear store again for those who may have missed the opportunity to order team wear the first time around. The deadline for ordering is February 1 and scheduled delivery will be February 20. To order spirit wear go to www.playersbench.tuosystems.com/stores/tjbaseball
Contact Steve Van Sky ASAP if you are donating anything to the auction for accurate inventory.
