Baseball Fall Workouts
Pay fee for Fall Baseball
Scott Honican returns to coach Garfield's fall ball team, the Sluggers! The team is a combo of 9th-12th graders, playing on Saturdays in the Seattle Elite Fall Ball League and a schedule of nonleague games against 16U/18U teams on Sundays throughout the fall. Practices start August 5th. Games start September 7th. Season ends in late October.
Priority for roster spots goes to returning Garfield players. Rookies will be incorporated if room on roster and skill level appropriate for competition at high school level.
Cost per player is $200, non-refundable. Pay by debit/credit card on booster club website or bring a check payable to "Garfield Diamond Sports Booster Club" to Coach Honican at one of the August practices. Please include player name on subject line of checks.
Players that pay their fall ball fee by August 23rd will get their name on back of their Sluggers jersey.
If money is in question and you want information about scholarship for fall ball, please contact Garfield Diamond Sports Booster Club president Steve Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sluggers jersey is provided and should be worn at all fall ball games. Players that pay by the early deadline will get name on back of jersey.
Players use their own white/gray pants, purple/black socks, purple/black belt, purple/black undershirt and any Garfield hat. Please contact Garfield High School head coach Chris Moedritzer ASAP if you are missing any of these uniform items.
No metal spikes are allowed on synthetic turf fields so make sure you have molded rubber cleats for fall ball practices and games.
Monday/Wednesday/Friday 4:00pm-6:00pm @ Garfield Playfield (August)
Tuesday/Thursday 4:00pm-6:00pm @ Garfield Playfield (September/October)
Practice attendance is optional, although highly suggested if you want to see improvement during fall ball. Players who miss practices for any reason are expected to maintain their baseball skills during the week by running, throwing, hitting, and doing defensive drills so they are ready for weekend game action.
Rainouts will be announced in an email to players and parents at least 1 hour prior to scheduled practice time. No email = practice is on as scheduled.
Saturday/Sunday at various ballfields in greater Seattle area (September/October)
Schedule will be posted on TeamSnap. Players will be required to use the free TeamSnap app or website for fall ball.
Players are required to post their availability by Friday 12:00pm for all weekend games.
Players that fail to post game status by Friday afternoon will not be considered for a spot in starting lineup.
Players and parents will be notified by email of rainouts or any changes to game date, time or location. No email = game is on as scheduled. Players should check their email before heading to ballfield is the weather is questionable.
