*GREAT JOB TO THE PLAYERS THAT DEDICATED THEMSELVES IN THE FALL OF 2020 UNDER VERY UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCE OF COVID TO WORK IN ACHIEVING OUR 2021 SEASON GOALS!
***WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!
When---Practice begins Wednesday August 28th; Games begin September 11th
Practice---Our off-season rules have changed according to the NCHSAA as of the 2016-17 school year. We no longer are restricted to having only 8 players for skill development sessions each day. We now may have true team “practices”, in which we are not restricted to the number of players that may attend. Also, as of the 2017-18 school year, the NCHASS reduced the “dead periods” throughout the school calendar. This simply means that our players will have more opportunities provided for improvement. With this said, we MUST take advantage of each and every day allowed by the state for fall practice in order to have our program prepared for our Varsity baseball schedule in the spring.
This Fall is crucial for Spring success!
Coach Meadows and the NPHS baseball staff will direct all Fall Practices. Workout sessions will emphasize baseball skill development such as improving hitting mechanics and approaches, individual defensive fundamentals, pitching mechanics, base running skills, team concepts, as well as dramatically improving arm strength through our throwing program. Players will also improve the speed, strength, quickness, agility, and flexibility through our daily conditioning program.
Games--- Players from NPHS will be competing in the Greenville Babe Ruth Recreation Fall Baseball League, Our team will be the “Pitt County North” team. Games will be played during the week. We will play one game per week in September, and two games per week in October. As of right now, NO WEEKEND games will be played. All weekday games are played at Guy Smith Stadium/Prep Field. We will have one team participating in this league, playing a “Varsity Level Schedule”. Our main concern is to take care of the players that we feel are varsity caliber players to match the competition in which this league presents. However, all players will receive some playing time, in order to put to use the skills worked on during the week at our practices. This Fall is an excellent opportunity for our all players to receive the opportunities for growth and improvement. Our Fall Babe Ruth rosters will have no bearing on our Spring NPHS rosters, JV or Varsity. The fee to play on this team is $85.00. This covers the player’s jersey, insurance, and umpire fees. Make checks payable to Pitt County North Baseball, or pay with cash.
***ANY PLAYER THAT IS INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN OUR NPHS FALL BASEBALL PROGRAM MUST ATTEND OUR INTEREST MEETING ON TUESDAY AUGUST 27th @ 3:45 IN ROOM 202 (the Health/Sports Medicine Room)
