HARVARD--It is time to start thinking about baseball! Harvard Baseball has worked with AtBats (Majors - The Sports Hub in Leominster) to put together a program to prepare ball players for the spring. The program will consist of six sessions ending just before the in-town ball starts.
Below are the times that each group will be scheduled. Please note that due to expected higher enrollment, some of the groups have more than one session. Players will be assigned to one time slot only per week.
At Bats - Boxboro (every Saturday, February 25th - March 31st) Rookies 1:00 - 2:00 or 2:00 - 3:00* Minors 12:00 - 1:00 or 1:00 -2:00* T-Ball 2:00 - 3:00
The Sports Hub - Leominster (every Tuesday, March 5th - April 9th) Majors 6:30 - 8:00
*Times may change by 1 hour depending on registration numbers. We are going to rent out three cages and focus on throwing/pitching, catching, hitting, and fielding. Register at www.harvardbaseball.org.
We have hired two "pros" this year to work with the players. Below are the bios for each. As with the regular season, we will also be looking for parents to help out. This is a great opportunity for the parents to learn from the "pros" as well.

We anticipate this program filling up quickly, so please make an effort to sign up ASAP. Registration will close on February 7th. You must pay by Paypal, unpaid registrations will be deleted after 24 hours.
Evaluations/Tryouts: We have scheduled Major and Minor league tryouts at AtBats for two consecutive Fridays, March 8 and 15, from 4-8pm. It is required that your child attend one of the sessions. We will be contacting you early in 2013 with details regarding tryouts including scheduling, league philosophy, and placement.
