HGRA Majors Bees vs Seals game

Rotation has been updated for our gameBees vs. Seals Highland Senior High Thur May 28 (I corrected a mistake on my unofficial blog calendar). The game starts at 6:30, but please arrive around 6:00 pm.

The rotation now has a brief of explanation on how positions are assigned

1. Pitchers can do 3-6 outs, they must be consecutive outs

2. No more than twice in any position except catcher

3. Catchers get to play more innings (because it's a demanding position)

We distribute bench time as evenly as possible, but it’s rare to have a completely even distribution. Anyone willing to catch will always get extra time, so if someone wants less bench time catching is a good option!

Coach John will be away for this Thursday game and for next Tuesday practice. We know Jimmy and Aaron will miss this game and that Ben may have a sore ankle (though he moved well in practice!).

If there are any other known absences, or late arrivals, please email BOTH coach John ( and coach Paul (

Asher and one other player left a glove behind, we think Asher might have taken Aidan’s glove by accident. We’ll bring them in our equipment bag.

Ben Taylor is bringing our treats tomorrow.

It may be cold and wet. We recommend a t-shirt, then a long sleeved shirt, then our uniform top on cooler days with a backup rain/wind jacket.

We’ve now had several practices and two games, so this is a good time to pick up early feedback. Please email or pass on ideas, suggestions, etc. Especially let us know if your player is feeling stressed, worried, unhappy, etc.

I’m sorry I’ll miss the game, the Bees have been improving quickly!
