1. Senior Awards Night (May 10)
All seniors who would like to attend Awards Night are encouraged to do so. It is such an important night for these guys, and we would never dream of asking our players to miss Awards Night to play in a game.
2. Senior Night (May 17)
At this point, we are planning to recognize our seniors before our V game vs. Hancock County on May 17. We will begin the ceremony 10 minutes before game time and ask that parents be at DC at least thirty minutes before game time.
3. Summer Baseball
It is my understanding that this is a BIG topic for many of our younger players and their parents right now. My hope is that a little information may help alleviate any concerns. First off, we have NO involvement in Babe Ruth at all; this means that we do not select any coaches, pick any teams, or, most importantly, require any player to play. As long as our players are playing somewhere where they have the opportunity to play and get better, we are happy. The only connection our program has to summer baseball is the DC Dirtbags team that competes in the Twin Lakes Baseball Conference (a league for 3rd Region H.S. teams). This league runs from the end of the high school season up to the Dead Period. Once the Dead Period hits, players are free to play wherever they choose for the remainder of the summer. This team is typically comprised of players who will be playing on the Varsity team the following season; this season, however, we have so many players playing with the KY Naturals that we may have to fill the team with several of our Fr. players. We will be finalizing the roster in the coming week, so all players who will be involved will have an idea of what to expect.
It is my hope that this information will help everyone make necessary decisions and arrangements in the coming weeks and months. Thanks!
