Parents and Players - Due to the horrible weather we have had this Fall we have decided to extend the Season an extra week!  We will not only continue to practice, weather permitting, but will play additional games through the last weekend of October.  

 

We have also added an extra tournament at the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale. The 2nd Annual PW Fall Wood Bat Invitational Upperclass tournament team will include the upperclass players as well as some underclass players by special invitation from the coaching staff.  The tournament runs Oct 28-30th.

 

Don't forget to moniter the website and schedule for additional games (Chiefs Red and Black) and possible changes.

 

There will be a parents meeting in early November to discuss the upcoming 2017 Spring Season, required paperwork/forms, physicals and fundraising opportunities.  

 

Start recruiting your foursome and door prizes now for the 2nd Annual Fighting Indians Baseball Fundraising Golf Tournament at Meadowwood Golf and Tennis Club on Decmeber 4, 2016.  More information to be provided at the upcoming parents meeting!
