JV Season Complete/Tourney Reminders

The JV team finished their season with 2 impressive games.  Wednesday night was a fantastic game with an exciting comeback finish.  Tonight we came up a little short but the boys played well.  It was an honor and privilege to work with these boys this year.  They definitely improved throughout the season and I hope they will continue to play the game.  They are all great ball players.
Now that the JV season is over, I will need the boys to return their pants and 2 jerseys WASHED and the belt and in a bag with their name on it.  They may keep the socks and hat.  Please get these turned in ASAP. 
A reminder that the Varsity tournament starts Saturday morning with our first game at 10am.  The boys should be there by 9am for warmups.  White Jerseys.  All 8th grade JV players are welcome to dress out for the game as well.
Please come out and support the Mustangs this weekend!!

JV game added THURSDAY (May 1)

We DO now have a JV game scheduled for Thursday at 5pm against the Bobcats.  This game will be at Pitts Park (see link below for directions).  The boys need to be there by 4:15pm in Purple Jerseys.  No bus.  This again includes all players in town (V or JV). 

By the way....there is a chance that due to the rain, our home game tomorrow (Wed.) may get bumped for HS makeup or field conditions.  Just be watching email as always.

But for now.....Games Wed. at home 5:15pm, Thurs. at Pitts Park 5pm.

LAMS Baseball (week of Apr. 28-May 3)

This is the last week of LAMS Baseball.  I realize the timing of the 8th grade trip isn't ideal, but it was unavoidable.  Here is our schedule for the week as I know it now.  Things could change as far as times and weather conditions:

Monday - OFF

Tuesday - OFF

Wednesday - JV game at HOME at 5:15pm vs Bellevue.  White Jerseys.  All players in town (JV OR V) should be at this game ready to play.  Practice before starting by 4pm.

Thursday - Slight possibility of JV game.....stay tuned.

Friday - OFF

Saturday - Varsity Tournament begins.  White Jerseys.  All 8th graders invited to dress out.  Bracket is attached once again.  Our first game in at 10am at Lipscomb.  Please be there by 9am for warmups.  WHEN we win, we will then play at 2pm at Lipscomb so the boys will have time for a quick lunch break.  (The loser of that first game plays at 4pm at Lipscomb).

Tuesday, April 22, 2014


As some of you may have heard, we have added a JV game vs Grassland at Grassland THIS THURSDAY at 3:45pm.  Purple jerseys.  I have asked for the boys to be out by 2:40pm and will let you know if I get approval.  Unfortunately, the bus will not be available so we are going to need several parents to carpool and get them there as soon as possible. 

Let me know if there are any conflicts.

JV Game Tuesday - UPDATE

I have just heard from Grassland that there will only be one game tomorrow night (Tuesday).  It will begin between 5:30-6pm and will be a full length game. 

We are trying to secure another JV game, possibly next week, but if that doesn't work out, tomorrow's game will be the last game for our JV team. 

As we did last year, we will invite all 8th grade JV players to dress out for the tournament starting May 3.  They can continue to practice with the team as well. 

We will keep you posted on any future JV games if they work out.

Varsity should come tomorrow to practice at Grassland starting at 3:45pm.

Sunday, April 13, 2014


Due to a scheduling conflict, we no longer have access to our home field tomorrow.  Therefore, the JV game has been cancelled for tomorrow (Monday).  I think weather would've gotten us anyways. 

Since the JV team will not be playing tomorrow, they will now need to come on the bus to Hillsboro Tuesday and practice before/during the V game there.  They should be done by 5pm and can stay and watch V game or leave. 

All other games are on for this week as scheduled as far as I know.

Sorry for the late notice on tomorrow.

Great Varsity game tonight!  The boys played great baseball and we brought home our first win of the season. 

The entire JV team will have an inside practice tomorrow from 3:15-4:15 in my classroom.

Six of the Varsity guys will have a pitching/catching practice assuming I can get a gym.  They know who they are.  I will email if a gym is not available.

We will not practice Thursday.

Friday - All V and JV players in town will need to come to the LA high school field at 3:30pm.  They will practice before our first home game at 4:30pm.  Some JV players will be asked to play in the V game due to a few absences.  All boys should bring their white jerseys.  Those not asked to play can leave at game time or stay in the dugout and support the team. 

Watch for an email at the end of Spring Break about practices.  We may practice on the final weekend of Spring Break for those in town. 

Thanks!  Go Mustangs!

LAMS BASEBALL 2014 Varsity/Junior Varsity

Below is the current breakdown of Varsity and Junior Varsity players for the 2014 LAMS Baseball Team.  Please know that the coaches feel that we have not had enough time or practices to properly evaluate the boys and make this decision.  However, due to our projected game on Wednesday, we cannot delay the decision any longer.  We felt there were some boys who definitely have proven to be varsity players while some have shown us that they belong on the JV team.  Most importantly, there were several boys who in our opinion were on the fence and could go either way.  We have chosen to make a call and divide them, but we stress again that this decision is very subject to change.  We fully expect there to be some movement throughout the season either up or down depending on performance, ability and need.  We reserve the right to move any boy at any time and appreciate your respect and understanding in doing so.
