TWILB 4/13

Players and Parents –

It’s starting to feel like Spring so that means it’s also going to feel like we have baseball everyday. Players – take care of yourselves and stay healthy. Be sure you are getting plenty of sleep and are eating properly. Parents – you will probably need to do the same if you plan on coming to all of the games. We are in it for the long haul now. Below is a recap of the Spring Break Tourney that the JV and Varsity teams participated in last week, a schedule for this week, and some updates and reminders.
Last Week’s Games
The JV team had a pretty good showing in the 2015 SB Tourney. During pool play they beat Lake Shore 9-1, tied Grosse Pointe North 5-5, and lost to Cousino 6-2 and Dakota 5-2. This qualified them for the Silver Bracket Tournament, where they made it to the championship game by beating Richmond 4-3. However, they lost to Grosse Pointe North in that game 4-2. The JV team is now 3-5-1 overall.
The Varsity team didn’t have quite the showing they expected, only winning one game against Warren Mott 2-1. They lost to Dakota, Avondale, and Richmond in pool play to qualify for the Silver Bracket Tournament. In the opening round they lost to Warren Mott 2-1. The Varsity team is now 3-5 overall.

Spirit Wear
There was an e-mail that went out over the weekend regarding Spirit Wear. All items are now available to be purchased online by going to www.requiredteamgear.com. You will either need to create an account or login using the information you provided last year if you purchased anything then. The team code to use is 156236. The store will only be open through Sunday 4/19!
 
Pictures
Team pictures are today (JV/Freshmen 4:00, Varsity 4:30) all at Princeton. Order forms will be available at the field and you may place your order AFTER the pictures have been taken if you wish.
Sponsors
I have ordered the first round of sponsor banners for the field. As you get new sponsors, please let me know ASAP so that I can order the proper banner for them so we will be able to advertise their business on our field all season. The sponsorship form is attached to this e-mail.
Summer Baseball
I have sent texts out to all of the players about summer baseball and as of today we do not have enough interest to get an entire team together. However, there are many players who I know do not have summer teams that I have not heard back from yet. It is an expectation that if you are in the Lakeview Baseball program, you play on a team over the summer. We are trying to set up a 16U team that will play a local league schedule and travel to 2 tournaments. The cost will be minimal compared to most travel programs. If you were on the Dirtbags 16U team last summer and are 17 now or will be 17 by the summer, you will still be allowed to play on this team this summer – I will talk to you individually. IF YOU HAVE INTEREST, PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP. I will be making a decision by the end of the week whether we have enough to go forward with a team or not.
 
Media Center
Bags will not be allowed to be stored in the Media Center during school for the next 2 weeks. If you need to store your bag somewhere, you can do so on the stage in room 111.
Varsity Showcase
Varsity players – if you are interested in participating in the 2015 Michigan High School Baseball Showcase held in Grosse Pointe, please see me ASAP. More information can be found at www.michiganbaseballshowcase.com. This is one of the very best showcase events in the state and I would encourage you to participate in it if you are interested in playing baseball in college.

TWILB – 4/6/2015

Players and Parents –

I hope that everyone had a nice Holiday weekend. A lot of good things took place last week for the baseball program and we are excited for our Varsity and JV teams to compete in the Macomb County Spring Break Tournament this week. Below is a recap of last week and a look into what’s coming up….
Last Week’s Games
Varsity
The Varsity team split their completed games last week, losing a close one to Utica Eisenhower 4-3 on Monday then coming back and winning in extra innings under the lights against Clawson on Wednesday night 6-3. The Varsity team is now 2-1.
JV
The JV team also split their games this past week, losing to Milford on Monday 14-7 then beating up on Warren Fitzgerald 16-1 on Wednesday at home. The JV team is now 1-2 overall.
Freshman
The 9th grade team won their only 2 games of the week on Monday 12-8 and 7-0 against Milford. We are looking into why Eisenhower was a no show on Friday and apologize for any inconvenience that this caused. The Freshman team is now 2-0.
This Week’s Games
Varsity
Monday 4/6 – vs Warren Mott 2:40 pm @ Warren Mott, vs Dakota 5:00 pm @ Warren Mott
Tuesday 4/7 – vs Richmond 3:30 pm @ Warren Mott
Wednesday 4/8 – vs Avondale 5:00 pm @ Warren Mott
Saturday 4/11 – TBD @ Kyte Monroe
JV
Tuesday 4/7 – vs Cousino 3:00 pm @ Kyte Monroe #2, vs Lake Shore 5:30 pm @ Kyte Monroe #2
Thursday 4/9 – vs GP North 12:30 pm @ Kyte Monroe B, vs Dakota 3:00 pm @ Kyte Monroe B
Saturday 4/11 – TBD @ Kyte Monroe
Spirit Wear
I would like to apologize that there has not been an opportunity to order any spirit wear yet this season. Our contact at Burke’s has been feverishly trying to get in touch with the representative from the company that sets up the site to order from and has been unsuccessful. We will be looking into different options this week and should have some information soon. In the meantime, I do have the “L” hats for sale – $20 each in the XS/SM and L/XL sizes. If there is enough interest in the M/L size, I will order more (it will take approx 4-6 weeks to get them in).
Sponsorships
We are still collecting corporate and fan sponsorships. I have attached the information flyer to this e-mail. The first set of signs for the field at Princeton will be ordered at the end of this week, so if there is a company who is willing to sponsor our season, please talk to them this week. Players – this is a good opportunity for you to go out while you are off school and get some money raised for the program (and you will get money back towards the uniform fee that you paid). I am looking for one parent to please take this form into Buffalo Wild Wings in SCS – they are expecting it. Please let me know ASAP if any of you are able to do this!
 
Team Pictures
Team pictures are scheduled for Monday, April 13th at 4:00 at Princeton. This is for all 3 teams. We will have forms available for the Varsity and JV teams this week and if any Freshman players are around, all of the coaches will have these starting tomorrow – be sure to ask for one. More information as far as what is expected for pictures will be texted out later in the week.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Have a great week!
Coach McGregor

TWILB – 03/30/2015

Players and Parents –

The season is now well under way and despite the weather, we are trying to get in all of the games and practices that we possibly can. Below is what this week looks like in terms of games as well as some updates on items moving forward. Please pay attention to any text messages from your coach this week as field availability is scarce, so practice times and locations may be moved around a bit.
Last Week’s Games
Last week, our Varsity and JV teams kicked off their seasons against Utica. Varsity got a big win 6-1 thanks to outstanding pitching from Steven Selleck and good offensive performances from Hunter Brown, Nick Dozek and Selleck. The JV team lost 5-0 on the road.
