Thank you very much to the 18 boys that tried out for the Brielle Elementary School Baseball Team this year. It was a pleasure to work with the boys this week at tryouts. Picking a team is always my least favorite part of being a coach because they are all good boys that I would love to spend my Spring with. There are 10 eighth graders on this year's team so if you did not make the team this year, thank you for your efforts this week. I think there is a great opportunity to make the team next year once the eighth graders graduate and leave 10 openings on the team. If you have any questions about what you can work on for next year, please come see me and we can discuss what I observed at tryouts.
If you do see your number below, congratulations. I'll see you at practice on Monday, April 9th as we prepare for our first game on Thursday, April 12th vs Wall Intermediate School.
Have a great Easter everyone!
March 28th, 2018

March 19th, 2018
We are on schedule to begin baseball tryouts this Friday, March 23rd from 3:10-5:30 pm.

If you are involved in the school play, please wait to tryout on Monday, March 26th. I hope to have the team picked after 3 days of tryouts.

February 26th, 2018

A sign up form can be found outside Coach Labrecque's 4th grade classroom. Please have all your medical forms to Mrs. Looney ASAP.
See you at tryouts.

Last year, we had 16 players on the team and we will try to make 17 team members work this year. I have discussed with the boys that due to the large number of players on the team, playing time could be limited for some players but a letter will come home to address this in more detail in the coming days.
So, congratulations to the following players for making the 2017 Brielle Blazers Baseball team.
