Open Gym Schedule The winter open gym
schedule is now set, and can be found HERE.
Winter workouts will take place on Sunday
mornings, and on Monday evenings. All
of those workouts are at the high school,
though some may be moved to the new Sage
College Armory, which has a 190 x 110 foot
indoor turf surface. If we move to the
Armory at any time, we will workout carpool
options. All workouts are optional,
but we expect each player to make a commitment
to winning this winter. If you
are a basketball or indoor track athlete,
that sport should be your priority.
League Stats and Leaders The hitting league
stats have been updated. The big
movers this week were Austin
Famiglietti, who moves into second
place after a big night, and Tyler Graham,
who charged into the top 10 by gaining 4
places! Congrats to those boys and all
who showed up to get their swings.
Beach Payment Schedule Most players had no
problem making their first scheduled payment
through fund raising. A few, however,
have not. If you have not, please
contact me ASAP. The remaining
schedule is below.
Day Coach Chizek has been a
coach on the BP staff for 6 years. In
that time, he has had a positive influence
on the many boys who have learned from him,
showing them how to be better baseball
players and better young men. Coach
Chizek is also a United States Navy veteran
of 8 years. Today, on Veteran's Day, I
would like to thank, on behalf of the BP
baseball program, Coach Chizek and all of
the other BP veterans for their service to
our country. The photo here is of
Coach Chizek, serving on the air craft
carrier, USS Nimitz, which was commissioned
in 1975, and is still in service today.
