Final email and send off
Good afternoon Orioles, thank you all one last time for a wonderful season as I couldn't be more happy with a 12-4 overall record. Even though it ended on a note none of us had in mind; we had a great season and at utmost had fun! Each and every one of your players improved immensely (So I did my job)! 
 
Thank you all for attending the event (practice on Tuesday night), along with a huge thank you to the Shirey's for getting the team pizza and goodies for us to eat afterwards. 
 
Take good care, see you around the ball fields - COACH GRIFF

reminder for this weeks practice
Good morning, almost afternoon. 
Remember we will NOT hold a practice this (Thursday 19th) due to a make up for the other team. In place of that we will practice on (Friday 20th) from 6-8pm. I told the team if we won 5 or 4 games last week (which we did) we wouldn't practice but I think we really need to work on situations defensively and hitting. 
 
Thanks, see you friday. - Coach Griff

Update
Team,
As of yesterday late afternoon it was brought to my attention that we were officially adding a player. He was registered at the start of the season but had other commitments but now is going to be on our roster for the long haul of our season. 
 
I am aware that this is out of nowhere in about the mid part of the season but, I also know we have a great respectful group of young men and women, to make the adjustments and welcome him to our Orioles family. On that note we will have even more players sitting in on an inning.. if we have all players. This will make our roster 13 as I will make adjustments as best as possible. 
 
As the Head Coach I have made the call for our team that he will NOT officially play in a game till Saturday the 7th. I will have him in attendance Tuesday and will start playing with us at practice on Thursday this coming week. 
 
Thank you all and enjoy your Sunday, For those of you coming out to tournament tryouts see you then assuming we don't get rain lets hope.
 - Coach Griff

Tourney interest
Take a look at this. I was an assistant last year and we aren't quite sure about the staff this year but we need the interest before anything. I will mention it after the game this week and at practice along with answer any questions. I just wanted to get this out there asap as the tryouts are in less than a week.
 
 I am a bit behind on our reminders for this week but I'll get that out by tomorrow at the latest in the evening. Brief overview is game wed at home, practice thurs, game sat at home same time at home. 
 
Thanks Coach Griff
 

Parents,

I wanted to quickly reach out to you to encourage registration in our 2022 15U tournament team. Unfortunately, our current numbers for Sunday's tryout are very low, and we are in danger of not having enough players to field this team. 
 
If your ballplayer has not participated in one of our tournament teams before, talk to your teammates and coaches. Several of them have participated in previous years, and I'm sure would be happy to share their experience. As last year's 8U Tournament Team coach, I can tell you that our team had a great time traveling to other parks and spending a few weekends on the diamonds together while getting to participate in a mini-season of games against elevated competition.
 
For those that are already registered, we will revisit our registration numbers on Saturday morning and determine if a team is feasible this season, or if Sunday's tryout will be cancelled.
 
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out.
 
Regards,
Chad Runge
BBSC President

Update for practice tonight: 
 
- showers are coming down in the area. I’m hoping this will passover like it says by 5 ish and we should be fine at 5:30 or so. Our field can hold some rain… it was fairly dry this morning. If we do cancel.. that would be at the field, so let’s just hope it’s a shower.

Team, a couple of updates on this beautiful wednesday morning. 
 
1. We will NOT be making up our game this week so no need to worry about that for your Easter plans this weekend. We'll worry about that at a later date. 
2. I may hold a NOT mandatory practice on Saturday. Once I see that more than 2 players would be interested... I'll consider it more and let you know as I'm aware a handful are out of town. 
 
That's all I got. See you tonight at 5:30-5:45 arrival at brooklyn park. - Coach Griff

Update
Team,
    I've had a couple questions about Tuesdays.. There are NOT Tuesday practices right now. That was just a one time thing that followed into a scrimmage last week. I try to add as many practices as we can get; especially with the weather we had... It was NEEDED! 
****We are just Thursday practices from here on out unless said otherwise. Which can be likely.. with mother nature hating us each Thursday.****
 
Also, I need to know who is in attendance for the game on Wednesday night. I haven't seen you all in about a week (I know right it's killing us all) let's hope that doesn't hurt us.
 
Please reply within 24 hours who is attending the game. If you have or haven't told me please let me know either way. 
Thank you, Have a great night. - Coach Griff

Schedule
Good afternoon team, We have officially gotten the schedule. I have attached 2 documents below. 
 
- The first is the master look of all teams in the co-op and then I made a schedule... copied for just us. 
- Both sites will be updated throughout the season. Just the one I made for us... can be a bit easier to read than the huge master schedule from the league co-op.
  1. As it looks....we will not have to move any practices!
  2.  During the weekdays we will play all home games on Tuesdays and away on mainly wed/tues and a singular monday.
  3. On Saturdays we should be fine traveling or not I'd assume. 
  4. 15 total games, but on some wonky days we don't have a game on saturdays. 
  5. I'm very satisfied with 9 home games and 6 away. 
  6. Playoffs: We will then split the 31 teams into 3 playoff brackets for single elimination. Playoffs will start around 6/14 with hopes to wrap up by the following week or so. Championships may stretch until the last week of June.
  7. The schedule will be added to Game Changer and our BBSC team site. 
  8. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about attending any game. 
Thank you. You'll hear from me soon about tonight's scrimmage and weather

Strength training for throwing and hitting
Team I sent this to a player this morning and would also like to share this with our whole team. Thjs will help throwing strength and hitting power and bat speed. 
 
Watch the videos below and perform them after you watch and listen to them. I recommend watching them fully the first time then watching the video a second time and just pausing them as you go, for example (10 reps, a set of 10/ 1x10) then play video. 
 
1. Throwing strength videos below. Not many items/equipment needed.
 
 
_____________________________________
2. Hitting power and bat speed below.
 
——————————————————————
Throwing on a schedule with a partner helps as well. I described a good throwing program to follow.
 
1.  Work up the throwing activity each time. 
 
Start small with a couple days a week and slowly expand the length between you and your partner. 
 
Start with not very far like 80-90 ft for a couple days a week then ramp the length up each time to about 10 yards more, then make your way to about 5 days a week to a consistent length. 
 
When you make it a good distance (Max distance for the day) slowly make your way back in. Your hardest throws should come at the very end once you and your partner are about 90 ft.
 
 Close with fast hands get the ball back to your partner with fast smooth controlled hands from glove to hand to….throw. 
——————————————————————
Hope this all helps. Any questions let me know. I also recommend doing the throwing 1 video twice per day then do other video twice per day the next day and keep up with that 5 days a week. You can start with 2 days a week and ramp up to begin. Don’t just do both videos in a day focus on the exercises and go from there each day. (Reps better than speed). As for the hitting you can do the same day program I just described since they’re sorta lengthy for 2 videos. 
 
- Take care and of course any questions let me know. Coach Griff

Happy Sunday team. 
- Good practice yesterday. I mentioned to your players throughout the practice about having an additional practice this coming week and possibly the following week. We’ve lost 2 via cancel and 2 not being able to use the dirt infield and those 4 are crucial to be “ready” to start the season. 
 
So my plan is to have a Tuesday practice this coming week. Along with the Thursday and Saturday (weather permitting in each of course). After all it seems April showers have come early. So I want to make the best of this. 
 
This email is to solely see who CAN or CANNOT make it. Please respond if you can’t make a Tuesday practice this coming week. If you don’t respond I’ll assume you can make it. The time and location is the same. 
 
I’ll confirm this practice tomorrow morning by 10am if I have enough that can make it…which from talking to the team seems like we will, but that’s up to you as parents so just let me know. 
 
Thank you and enjoy your chilly Sunday.
- Coach Griff

Good afternoon, Welcome to Spring 2022 Babe Ruth, we're the ORIOLES! 

I am your Head coach Griffin Hinkle, assisted by Coach Alex Ward and our part time

assistant Coach Jack Holmes. I am 19 years old, and my assistants are 18. This

is my second full spring season as a head coach, and this is their first. We

have many years of experience playing together all the way up into high school.

We're extremely excited to be your son's/daughter coaches this spring. In other

words, anxious to get back out on the diamond. We will go more into depth at

our first practice about ourselves for you and your ballplayers to get to know

us more. 

 

Without further ado, our practice's start THIS WEEK. I have allotted us for our weekday practice on (Thursday evenings) and we will also have a weekend practice on (Saturday mornings) till our season starts on April 9 (from what I was told) then we will plan to be Thursdays (only) unless told otherwise. 

- 5:15PM-7:15ish Thursday's @Broadneck Park 3 starting on March 17

(I will move the time back once we get more daylight to help working parents, I'm sorry for the strange time.)

- 8:30AM-10:30ish Saturday's @Broadneck Park 3 starting on March 19th.

 

Games: We will be playing (Home) games on Tuesday (evenings) and games

(Home or Away) on Saturday (mornings I believe). We do not have an actual

schedule currently. All our HOME games will be played at Broadneck Park unless

told otherwise. Away games can be on different days of the week since different

parks and organizations have different field availability. If that happens to

be on a Thursday (practice night) we will adjust our practice night those weeks

accordingly. Once I get the schedule, I will send out ASAP. 

 

Team: Our roster consists of 12 (as of now) total players so that

means playing time is always encouraged when possible. I like great

communication of your child's availability at practices and GAMES, please be

honest and communicate with us as Coaches so we can plan accordingly. If we need

a player the plan is to borrow from the other Babe Ruth team in bbsc, only

if we need a player. But I encourage attendance and arrival at each event, so

we don't have to ever borrow. 

 

Help: We can use any help for practices when it comes to Drills,

Hitting, Feilding, Game situations, Live BP etc. We will have a plan for each

practice. I also will need a scorebook parent on game days. 

 

COVID/Sicknesses:  I ask we please be safe and honest with our symptoms of

anything... Even if it may not be covid it can still spread and affect anyone

on the team. One thing to keep in mind is that COVID is still around us like

any illness so please let me know of any sicknesses right away. I'd rather you

miss a practice with the sniffles before it gets serious to not attend a game

to keep us all safe and healthy this spring. 

 

I will touch base on all these topics and more at our first practice. Finally, we

are all here to play some baseball and get great amounts of playing time. We as

a coaching staff are here also to keep each of you SAFE and to HAVE FUN! Any

questions or concerns please reach out via Text, Call, Email

  • Thank you for your time and sorry for the long email. - Coach Griff
