Our annual meeting is set for Monday, September 24, beginning at 7:00pm in the back meeting room at Cubby's.
Applications for board positions are now open and we are looking for volunteers for those 2018-19 board positions, including both directors and coordinators of various openings.
If you're interested in any position, please contact Matt Krogman with interest.
Acquiring a board position is a great opportunity to earn points for the upcoming season.
Details regarding the annual election will be posted on the website soon, along with distribution of an email.
Brookings Friends of Baseball will be offering a Fall Ball opportunity for current 7th Grade-Senior (13-18.) We have two different options for our young athletes to work on skill development.
The Fall Camp would run from September 4 - October 14 (additional time if weather allows.) Each option would cost $40 or $70 for both options (please note, the registration cost shows $45/$75 which is because of online processing fee requirements.)
Both options would allow our young athletes the opportunity to receive more repetition and work on specific mechanical changes that are difficult to complete in season.
The first option would be Mondays & Thursdays from 6:00-7:30pm and would include pitching and/or catching. A Google sign-up will come out after registration. The sign up will include 20 minute bullpen sessions and/or 20 min catching sessions. Each athlete would complete a warm-up prior to the session. During the session, the athlete would receive specific instruction from one of the coaches to improve mechanics. Each athlete would also receive additional techniques to work on individually - outside of practice.
The second option would be Tuesday 6:00-7:30pm and Sunday TBD, and would include Infield/Outfield/Team Defense/Hitting instruction. Athletes would obtain the opportunity to hone in specific skills and receive additional reps. Sundays could include inter-squad practices to work on specific situations and live at bats.
If scheduling conflicts are holding you back, please contact:
Rob Hirrschoff, 605-690-5470; or Justin Palmer, 605-695-7717
Parents: Please make sure to sign up your athletes soon as the first session is scheduled for next week.
An updated points document was posted on August 13.
For those looking for year-end points, you can volunteer during sub-varsity football games which FOB runs a small concession stand for. A link to that signup can be found below.
An updated points summary will be posted by this weekend for review.
FOB has traditionally staffed the concessions during BHS sub-varsity football games, and will do so again in 2018.
These concession shifts do not require the usage of the grill.
Signups for these games are listed below.
If you were short points during the 2018 season, you can sign up for these shifts and earn points for working these shifts.
New for 2018 are various standards as it relates to bat legality and usage during games.
