DHHS Baseball Families,

I hope all is well with you and your family.  Here is some important information that you might find helpful as we get ready to begin our 2022 season:

Registration and Medical Clearance:

All players need to register for baseball with the DHHS athletic department.  You must have an updated physical.  If you have not registered or have not had a physical approved by the school nurse, you will not be allowed to participate at tryouts.  Please double-check with the school to make sure you are all set. 

Contact:  

Please let me know if you would like me to add/remove any emails addresses to our contact list.

Pitchers and Catchers Week:

Baseball is unique because we are allowed to begin a week earlier than other spring sports.  This extra week is called pitchers and catchers week.  It will run from March 12th -18th.  However, the CIAC makes very specific rules about the number of participants that are allowed to be invited (11 pitchers and 3 catchers).  These players will be invited and notified about the schedule by the end of February.  Only returning players are eligible to be invited.  All other players should be using this week to condition and prepare for the upcoming tryout, which will begin on Saturday, March 19th.

Please note:  Our tryout window may continue during the week of March 21st-25th.  Once roster decisions are made, players will be notified by the coaching staff with an in-person meeting.

April Vacation:

Please know that practices and games will be scheduled during April vacation.  Players should plan their schedules accordingly and should be available for all baseball activities.  If there are extenuating circumstances, players should notify the coaches ahead of time.

Partnership with MLL:

We are going to establish a powerful connection with Madison Little League this spring.  There will be ample opportunities for all of our players to engage with the MLL community and become mentors to the younger players and the future of our program.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything or answer any questions for you between now and the beginning of our season.

Sincerely and with Kind Regards,

Coach LaPointe and the DHHS Baseball Coaching Staff
