Good Evening All,
Tryouts for CMS Baseball begin on Tuesday 2/19 immediately after school until 5:15 so those who need to take the activity bus can do so.
VHSL Physicals MUST BE TURNED IN.
NO PHYSICAL= NO TRYOUT.
GRADES WILL BE RUN DURING THE TRYOUT SESSION. IF GRADES AREN’T UP TO PAR, THE PLAYER WILL BE ASKED TO NOT RETURN.
The boys should be prepared to go outside if possible. In all likelihood, we will be in the CMS gym and grade fielding, throwing and running as well as coachability and following directions. Students are to be in BASEBALL PANTS, appropriate tee shirt/sweat shirt and sneakers if indoors cleats if outdoors. Players trying out for catcher should have their catchers gear with them. Bats and Batting Helmets are NOT required on this day.
WEDNESDAY TRYOUTS: will be held at 6pm to 8pm at the Annex next to the High School Baseball Stadium. The reason for this is the forecasted weather does not allow for us to be outside. Varsity and Junior Varsity will have the Annex until 5:30. We are not allowed to hit in the CMS gym. The Annex affords us that ability. This also allows us to see the whole package of the player. Hitting and pitching will be graded at this session. Same attire is expected. Bats and Helmets are REQUIRED at this session. As a reminder the boys will need to swing a BBCOR drop 3, they can use another players if necessary. Players trying out for catcher should have their catchers gear with them.
If directions or Transportation is needed to the Annex please contact myself at this email or call me at 804-662-0888.
Players will be graded on the following attributes:ThrowingFielding RunningPitching HittingCoachabilityDiscipline
Roster will be posted Thursday Morning at CMS as well as on the Athletic Blog on the CMS website. Practice for those who make it will be immediately after school in the CMS gym. Parents will be notified via an email communicating date, time and location for parent meeting.
Lastly, if school is closed due to any reason tryouts will shift right one day. 2 hour delays will NOT have an effect on tryouts.
