2015 Diamond League
Our spring season is nearing completion and it’s time to start thinking about summer baseball. I mentioned in our parent meeting that all boys in the baseball program are expected to play Diamond League baseball with Bixby. I’m aware some play on different teams in the summer and we’ll work with your son when there are conflicts. However, we will not always be the one to compromise. What we do is important and the kids are starting to understand the commitment expected of them. If we are fortunate enough to have a player selected to compete on a select team that requires permanent residence in another State then we will work with that player. We also have players that play multiple sports for our school. If there are conflicts we will work with the player on what is best for him that evening. We will have four teams, 2 varsity, 1 JV and 1 incoming freshmen. We will have 12 to 14 players on the varsity teams and JV team. The incoming freshmen team could have a few more players. The purpose for Bixby baseball is the kids get to work on their games for another month. We will compete to win as always, but the purpose is to develop skill and understanding of the game. With lower numbers on the teams it will allow for more playing or developmental time. Games will be Monday through Thursday each week. The boys should be ready to play three games each week. Game times are 6pm and 8pm. Game sites are Jenks, Owasso, Broken Arrow, Union, Berryhill and Bixby. The Diamond League season will start June 1 and end the week of July 6.
After doing research of other 6A programs in the Diamond League, our fee for each player will be $275.00. If you have multiple children in the Bixby baseball program your total fee is $375.00. The fee covers league fees, Coach’s pay, field maintenance, balls, and other miscellaneous cost when a field is used for baseball. The league fees need to be in by May 25.
