Due to the fact that the infield is still wet, we are going to alter our practice plans for today.

V will need to come from 3:45-4:45pm

We will let each boy throw to warmup, hit in the cages and possibly pitch.  Once they have hit in the cages, unless they are needed to pitch, they can leave.

More Pictures from Ronda Sanderson and Leslie Hudson - Thanks!!


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.
