Month: August 2016

Field Improvements

We have started our field improvement program earlier this month with our first project, which is installing a new backstop system and dug out improvements.  The old backstop was torn down and the new backstop will consist of a brick half-wall and 25 ft. high netting system.  The backstop was also moved closer to home plate which will provide a new picnic area in between the concession stand and the new brick half-wall.  Both dug-outs are getting a 10′ x 10′ extension which will provide storage for field maintenance.  In addition, the dug-out roofs are being raised.  This project should be completed before Labor Day.

During the Fall 2016, we will begin construction of a bathroom/storage facility on the first base side of the field.  There will be two uni-sex family-style bathrooms for use by everyone.  Attached to the bathrooms will be a large storage facility.  This project will also provide running water to the concession stand.  The bathroom project will be completed before the 2017 Spring Season starts.

2016 Fall Baseball Information

The Warriors will be holding try-outs for the 2016 Fall Baseball season on Sept 6th, 7th & 8th.  Try-outs will be held on the field after the school day is over.  For the first time, we will have two JV teams.  Instead of having one team with 20 or more players on the roster as we have had in the past, there will be two teams with smaller rosters which will give all players more game time.

For those players that make the team, there will be a MANDATORY PARENTS meeting on Friday, Sept 9th @ 6:00 PM.  The meeting will be at Nansemond River High School, whether we meet in the school or on the field is still TBD.
