Schedule Changes and Modifications

The VBHS Baseball Prayer Breakfast was a huge success this morning with 100% turnout.  Thank you to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, First Baptist Church and all the volunteers for their time.


The game schedule has been modified due to some cancellations.  Please monitor the website for the most accurate and up to date schedule.  With the changes and additions some additional concessions and press box volunteers may be required.  Thank you for volunteering your time and supporting the program!

We have also added our Varsity Appreciation Nights to the Calendar page as well.  

VBHS Varsity Baseball Broadcast Live on Youtube.com
Mar 2, 2018, 8:01 am


Announcement:  All VBHS Varsity Baseball Games at the Reservation will be broadcast live on Youtube this year.

You can watch the live stream of each home game by going to Youtube and searching for "VBHS Baseball"

If you happen to miss the live stream you can go to Youtube and watch it later!



Thanks to Carter Associates, Inc., Citrus Three, Massey and Romans - Raymand James Financial and Byrd's BBQ and Catering for sponsoring the broadcasts!

Concessions and Press Box Signup
Feb 12, 2018, 5:07 pm




We need volunteers to run the concession stand and press box during our home games.  It is actually very simple.  If you know anyone that would like to earn volunteers hours they can recieve them from the Diamond Booster Club for volunteering in the concession stand.


At the left you will see the Concession & Press Box Signup Tab.  Once you select the tab you can sign up through the Sign Up Genious Link.  There are two links - one for Varsity and one for JV and Freshman games. 


The Diamond Booster Club does profit from selling food and drinks at the games.  If we don't have any volunteers we will not be able to operate the concessions and therefor we will lose our ability to make additional monies for the program.


Thank you in advance for your support!
