Because of the rain that came in last night & with more to come, the River Bluff baseball field will be unplayable today. For any player that arrives for the 10am game, we will evaluate each hitter in the cage and each pitcher will have the option to throw another bullpen.

*Once each day begins, all times are approximate, if we are ahead of schedule we will move into the next session/game immediately.

Player Notes:

-Players are responsible for bringing baseball pants, HS hat, bat, glove, helmet, indoor shoes and any other equipment you may need. DP will provide your jersey.

-Game Rules: 4 hitters = 1 inning

-Parents: Once games begin, please vacate the area behind home plate for coaches and scouts to evaluate.

-On Tuesday, the registration tables will be stationed in RF corner, next to football stadium. Players are to put equipment in 1B bullpen and wear turfs/running shoes, then report to RF at assigned time to meet and run 60.
