REVISED Grosse Pointe South Baseball Practice Schedule Fall-2020

With the 16 fall practices we have been allowed to conduct by the MHSAA, we have been given an excellent opportunity for players to showcase their ability as well as for the coaching staff to do some much needed teaching of baseball skills.  

This opportunity will most likely NEVER be repeated by the MHSAA.  Therefore, it is extremely important that we have as many players as possible participate in these workouts.  

Attendance lately has been disappointing, with only a total of 18 freshmen and sophomores in attendance this past Saturday, and only 13 varsity candidates. (I have over 30 players on a potential Varsity tryout list.) I realize that some have been involved in fall baseball and others are playing a fall sport.  That should. of course, continue.  Fall sports take priority.  However, there are still opportunities for others who have not been attending to show up, at least occasionally. 

Attached is a revised practice schedule for the remainder of the practices.  They certainly, again, could be adjusted due to weather, so it is important to contact the coaching staff if you have any questions.  

Since all fall sports have been reinstated, our 16 baseball fall practice dates had to be adjusted, mostly because of field availability, as well as many are playing fall sports.  For those who ARE playing a fall sport, that takes priority.

 You should NEVER miss your fall sport to attend baseball.  Just come when you do not have a conflict, which will most likely be only Saturdays.

Any questions please email Coach Griesbaum

Preview of Letter for 2020-2021

The MHSAA has said that football and baseball WILL have separate seasons, for the most part, so players will NOT have to choose between the two. We do not know specific dates yet as far as exactly when the seasons will occur, but it looks like football will go first in early spring and baseball will follow. We will definitely be later than our usual mid-March start.  Football looks to begin around late February to early March with baseball beginning some time in late April to early May.  We have been assured that baseball will NOT go into July but may go later than mid-June with the MHSAA tournament.  Our 38 game dates should also not be reduced, according to an MHSAA representative.
