Our season will begin on Monday, May 3 and run through June 12. We will have three teams this season - Varsity, JV, and C - and I hope to have both the practice and game schedules available later this week.
We are opening our annual gear store. The store has a selection of high quality baseball attire for players and families, and everything in the store is optional. The store will remain open until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, April 20. This will allow time to deliver orders in support of our first games. The school will provide pants and belts with uniforms, but players that would like to buy and keep their own can get them through our store. Access to the store is provided by the link below:
Players are required to purchase their own hats through the school business office and we will provide purchase instructions after practices start. The hats are identical to last season, so returning players can use the one they bought last year if they have it. We will also have batting helmets for sale if players would like to have their own helmet. Otherwise one will be assigned for each player.
Congratulations Quentin O’Connor!
So excited to announce that Quentin has signed with Yakima Valley College to play baseball after graduation.
According to Coach Schaefer, Quentin may love baseball more than any player we've ever had at Bothell! He has been a three year Bothell varsity player and is looking forward to his final year pitching this spring. Yakima is a great fit for Quentin as it is, according to him, “a very competitive school and a fun environment. They want to win games and I believe they can get me to the next level.”
Good luck Quentin – both here and in your future. We will we watching!
