This Week in Baseball: February 17th

NATR/Fundraising Meeting:
Seven families have completed our Night at the Races Survey, if you have not done so please do so ASAP. We will have another meeting to discuss planning it on Tuesday, February 18th 7:00PM High School Teacher Lounge for those who wish to help. Thanks to all who attended last week! 
We currently have 35/200 tickets confirmed, 22/100 horses sponsored, and 4/10 races sponsored.
Practice Schedule:
Our practice schedule is available on Google Calendar.
Player Pre-Season Questionnaire:
Thanks to the 10 players who have submitted the 2020 Crestwood Baseball Pre-Season Questionnaire, if have not done so please complete prior to first official day of practice on Monday, February 24th.
Catching Equipment Clarification:
If your son is a catcher the chest protector equipment is no longer compliant and will need a new set that is NOCSAE certified. Every piece of equipment must be NOCSAE certified, some helmets and shin guards are already but the old chest protectors most likely are not. CASB has agreed to purchase two sets for the program for players to use this spring.
Baseball Belts, Socks and Pants:
These need to be purchased by families if they have already not done do. We wear red belts, red socks and solid white pants (no color line down leg) for both JV and Varsity.
Team Spirit Wear:
These are items that players must purchase. I have not heard back from our vendor on costs yet but we will reuse last years hats for returning players; only new players will need to purchase one. Spirit wear includes:
  1. Hat (new players only)
  2. 3/4 sleeve shirt (1)
  3. Practice Shorts (1)
  4. Practice Shirt (1)
  5. Game Day Shirts (2)

Free College Recruiting Showcase:
