Warriors Baseball players at every level are expected to make a big commitment in the spring. During the season, we will meet Monday through Saturday every week, and possibly on some Sundays when the New England weather forces us to reschedule. So please keep your schedule open, and be prepared for some last-minute changes.
For those of you who are setting up college visits, try to get them all done before tryouts. If that’s not possible, there will be a short window at the tail end of April break, when practices will be optional.
Please review the preliminary spring schedule below, and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
Begin Monday, 3/20, and run at least three days.
Times and locations TBD
Begins the day after tryouts end, and runs through the end of May.
Practices, scrimmages, and games every day after school and Saturday mornings
Practices and games throughout April break (optional from 4/20–4/22, for those visiting colleges)
Varsity practice on Sunday, 4/23, at the end of break, to prepare for the game on 4/24
Varsity playoffs potentially into mid-June
Winter time means it's Crunch Time! As we move indoors for the winter, make sure you continue to work toward your goals for the spring. Here are a few winter training options.

I'd like to congratulate those of you who played fall sports and wish the best of luck to those going out for winter sports. It's very important for all of us to support Warriors teams in every season. Even if you don’t try out for other sports, go to games and cheer on your peers!
Spring is right around the corner, and it's important to be ready to go hard on day one. The weather in New England can make it challenging to stay in baseball shape, but there are many opportunities for everyone to work out and train to prepare for the start of the season. Among these are the Brookline WinterBall clinic and independent training at nearby baseball facilities.
I expect all players, from freshmen up to seniors, to set goals and create plans to achieve those goals. If you need help with this, reach out to me for some guidance.
I am still working on the final details of the game schedule, but I will try to set aside a few days during April vacation for those of you who need to plan college visits. With that said, please try to get those visits done before the season begins, because spring weather could force changes to our schedule.
High school sports is a commitment. Coaches make tremendous sacrifices in our lives to be available during the spring season, and we expect the same from you. Personal issues can be discussed privately if needed.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
