Mouse Races April 24th

Mark your calendar for Saturday April 24th! That’s the rescheduled date for Fike Baseball’s annual mouse races fundraiser. More information to follow, but make sure to reserve that evening for this event.

Saturday Winter Workouts

Both Fike Baseball teams will start their indoor workouts this Saturday January 9th at The Dugout in Independence. Jr Fike will be from 9-10:30AM, and Sr Fike will be from 10:30-Noon. These workouts will be every Saturday until February 27th. Let’s get ready for a new year of Fike Baseball!

Team Hotel Reservations

The following is information on hotels for our out of town trips. The ones listed are where the teams will be staying and Jim has rooms on hold for parents. Parents need to call and pull their room out of the parents block. Refer to the team calendar for tournament dates.

On all senior tournaments and the juniors in Sioux Falls the players will stay in rooms as a team (unless parents are concerned about Covid) with those rooms being paid for by the team. If a parent decides to have the player stay in their room they are responsible to stay in the team hotel and pay for the room.

Important Fike News

Mouse Races – due to unknown Covid-19 restrictions in January we are postponing our annual Mouse Races Fundraiser until late Spring (date TBD). Hopefully by that time we will be able to host this very important fund raiser for our baseball teams. Coaches will contact players once we have a date confirmed, and then we will distribute the tickets for each player to sell.

Winter Workouts – Our winter workouts will start up again at The Dugout on Saturday January 9, 2021. Jr’s start at 9:00AM, and Sr’s start at 10:30AM. These workouts will run through the last Saturday in February. Players must have a signed Dugout waiver before practicing!

Required PaperworkParents, if you were unable to attend the last parent meeting you must contact Jim Moran to get the required paperwork filled out as soon as possible! There are a few forms that must be filled out and signed before players can practice and play this upcoming season, so please get this taken care of soon.
