Team Information

Baseball - Boys Junior Varsity

Baseball (7th-8th Grade)

 

Steve Spears will return as the head coach of our baseball program. Dr. Carleton, who played baseball collegiately, will also serve as the pitching coach.  We have also added Chip Durden to our staff, a former collegiate baseball player who will be our 7th grade head coach.
 
Coaches: 8th Grade: Steven Spears, Dr. Carleton, Darnell Cleary, 7th Grade: Chip Durden, Alvaro Baltodano and Marty Durden.
 
Practices: Practice will begin on February 3. Specific practice information regarding dates, times and location will be shared on the baseball team page on the School website.

 

Parent Meeting: February 3 at 5 p.m. in LC181

 

Required Gear: Players will need a fielder's glove, batting gloves, compression wear to wear underneath on cold days, a bat if desired, an equipment bag if desired.  Each player will also need a pair of white baseball pants.

Hitting: – It is a good idea to have a hitting coach. We highly recommend a place named Sport Sight. Their location is 5856 S. Rice and the phone number is 832-641-3945. These guys are good and familiar with our program and philosophy. We have negotiated a steep discount with them for lessons and training. Mention that you are a Presbyterian student, and you will receive the discount.

Throwing Program: - We have a throwing program that you need to get started on ASAP. The basic elements of the program are:

  • Squared feet – 20 yards approximately
  • Rock Back throwing – a little longer 30-40 yards
  • Slide Step Long Toss – increase the distance gradually and keep your throws low. We want a release out in front of your face and would prefer it to bounce rather than to loop the throw. Throw it on a straight line.
  • Move Back In – get closer and continue throwing but focus on a specific target.

Make sure you begin easily and warm up adequately in Squared Feet. It is important that you do not injure your arm by throwing too much too early. The purpose of the program is to build arm strength.

Game Schedules are online. Opening Day is Feb. 3.
