Opening Day weekend details

1)  Try on your uniform.  Pants can be exchanged for a more appropriate size at First Team Sports on Wade Hampton Blvd.  They are open 9-6 on Friday, and 9-1 on Saturday

2) Uniforms don't come with socks.  Make sure that you've connected with your Team Manager or Team Mom on what color socks you'll need to buy.

3) Team Photos are taken 90 minutes before first pitch for baseball players.  Softball teams have assigned times for photos on Saturday, but their Opening Day game is Monday night.  Players are photographed individually and then digitally combined into a team photo.  Players should have a glove and bat for the photos.  Coaches are not photographed.

4) Do not park in the loop, nor in the grass near the loop at the entrance to fields 1 & 4 at Conestee.  Unfortunately the closest handicap parking spaces are a good distance away from the bleachers, so help your family members that require assistance by dropping them off and parking for them.  

5) Have patience!  While we've been doing this for a long time, each Opening Day comes with some bumps.  There are lots of first time players, coaches, and umpires with us this season, and a thick rulebook.  On top of that, we've overhauled the Coach Pitch rules to try and provide a better experience for those players.  Cheer loudly and respectfully.

6) NO KIDS in the press box, unless it's your kid and they are helping you run the scoreboard.  Your kid's friends, and their friend's friends are not allowed in the press box during games.  This is distracting to the volunteers who are trying to keep up with games on the field.  Tasteful walk-up music is OK, but should be cut off before the batter enters the batter's box.

7) Visit our sponsors on Saturday.  We'll have a couple of tables set up from our sponsors, and they'd love to see you and your player.  Stop by the Greenville Drive tent for prizes and information about our Day at the Drive on April 19th

Have a great Opening Day Weekend, and we'll see you at Conestee and Lakeside!
