🌞 Important Update: Changes to Baseball and Softball Practices this Week 🌞 Dear players and parents, As much as we love the great outdoors, we also prioritize your safety and well-being. Due to the scorching heatwave expected this week, we've made some adjustments to our practice schedule: 📅 Tuesday: Today's practices will kick off with a 20-minute walkthrough outside. Afterward, we'll move indoors where it's cool and comfortable to continue our training. Hydration is key, so please remember to bring your water bottles! Practice will still end at 5pm. 📅 Wednesday and Thursday: There will be no after-school practices on these days. We understand the extreme weather conditions can be challenging, so we've arranged to utilize our PE time for practice instead. This will ensure everyone stays safe while continuing to work hard on improving our game. Remember, your safety always comes first! Stay hydrated, stay cool, and stay excited about our upcoming games. . 💪⚾️🥎
