Hello Team #1 Fall Ball Families!!
There were some recent additions to our roster and I wanted to resend my note from Tuesday so that my new players and families would be able to get up to speed.
Please also note that I have loaded up the practice and clinic schedule to the website, so you should be able to see what’s coming up, and I will have the games added in by the end of the weekend. Our first game will be Sunday, September 15th at Burgess, time TBD.
Looking forward to seeing everyone today at 4:00 at Willow Oaks for our first practice.
UPDATE: THURSDAY PRACTICE TIME CHANGED TO 4-5 DUE TO BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
Hello M-A Fall Ball Team #1!
I am Tony Arata and I am the head coach for Team #1 of the M-A Little League Fall Ball team. Worry not, we will be coming up with a better name for the team at our first practice, which is going to be set for Thursday the 5th at Willow Oaks from 4-5:00 (This practice is short due to Back To School Night for many families). This location will be our regular practice time for the season, but there duration will be from 4-:00-5:30 after this week. Our games will be played on Sundays at Burgess Park on the main diamond. I am coaching along with Justin Benkis and we are very excited to have a fun 2019 Fall Ball season. My son is Augie who is 8 and in 3rd grade at Encinal and he has been in the league for 4 years now, and I have been coaching for just as long. We did Fall Ball last year and it was a great experience, with a lot of emphasis on having fun and developing skills.
Our regular practices will be 4-5:30 each Thursday at Willow Oaks and our games, which start on the 15th of September, will be at Burgess Field. It’s a great experience for these younger players to get a chance to play where our Majors kids play, and they always have a great time on the big stage.
We will be playing the regular season through the 3rd of November and will have a two day Jamboree tournament the following weekend, November 9th and 10th at Burgess.
I have scheduled a special hitting clinic for the Sunday 22nd of September at Foundry Baseball in Redwood City from 12-2pm where we will be given individualized hitting instruction from the staff at the facility.
That’s all for now, more information to come in the coming days. Justin and I are very excited to see your little sluggers on Thursday at 4pm for our first practice at Willow Oaks!
Thank you so much,
