Parents can start calling on Monday 2/11/19 to pull room(s) from the blocks using a credit card. There are 15 rooms for the Jr team (players stay with parents). There are 8 rooms for the Sr team parents to reserve. We already have rooms for the Sr players.

Also note that as tournament and game dates are announced for both teams they will be added to the Fike Calendar, so keep an eye on it if you’re looking to plan ahead.
If you have not made final payment for your 2019 player fees (or winter workout fee) please do so as soon as possible. Even though our season does not begin until the end of May most of our tournaments have to be paid for months in advance.
Payments can be made through PayPal by using the Jr Fike or Sr Fike menu tabs above that say Payments, or you can bring a check (payable to “Fike Baseball”) to our next practice this Saturday at The Dugout. If you are unsure of how much your balance is please contact your coach or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Practice for today is on as scheduled at The Dugout this morning! Jr Fike practice is from 10-11AM, and Sr Fike is from 11-12PM. Please arrive a little early to fill out the waiver (if you haven’t already). There is a link to the waiver on our website if you would like to print and sign it before arriving.
Below is a link to the waiver that needs to be signed by at least one parent/guardian, or by the player if they are 18 years old, before practice at The Dugout. You can also sign one before practice if you would like. Keep an eye on your team’s Groupme tomorrow morning for any updates regarding practice due to weather…again!
