     2018-2019 Thompson Middle School Baseball 

    Welcome to our program if you made the team.  We are excited to have a new group of players and parents coming into our program.  We will let you know when we will have our 1st parent meeting for players who made the team this year.  For guys who made the team, we will work out Tuesday's and Thursday's after school  this fall from 3:15-4:30.  Players currently wrestling or playing basketball for TMS will be excused from workouts.  Our next work will be on Thursday 11-8-18.  We will not have workouts on Tuesday 11-21-18 (Thankgiving week).

    SELECTING THE TEAMS: As a coaching staff, let us say thank you to everyone who came and tried out for the Thompson 7th and 8th grade baseball teams.  Making cuts in the most difficult part about coaching.  This year’s decision was not easy.  When we pick the teams we discuss all players as a staff so every coach has the opportunity to share input on what they have seen out of potential players.

    To the guys who did not make the team:  If you did not make it this year, keep playing, you are welcome to practice and play with us this summer.  You are still growing and developing, so there is a chance you could make the team next year.  Work on getting stronger.  There are still other opportunities to get involved in Thompson athletics this spring: run track, play tennis, golf, football workouts.

    To the guys who made the team:  Some of you will be moved to other positions.  If you made the team this year, look at this year as a tryout for next year, as you are not guaranteed to be on the team next year.  Keep your grades up and stay out of trouble.
