Hello 9AA Green Players and Parents,
My name is Chris Graft and I will be the Head Coach for the 2022 9AA Green Edina Travel Baseball team. Joining me as Assistant Coaches for the season are Josh Budish, Pete Hinze, and Zach Atherton. We are excited to coach the team this year and look forward to meeting you and your sons.
I'm sure you have more questions than I have answers at this point, but I can tell you that we will be participating in the following weekend tournaments, so you can go ahead and put those on your calendar now.
Bloomington - May 13-15
Rochester - June 17-19 (look for a separate email from EBA on how to reserve a hotel room in the EBA block)
Edina Classic - June 24-26 (will need volunteers to help with tournament operations)
In the coming days, I expect to learn more information regarding the start of the season as we begin to have the practice and Metro Baseball League schedule fall into place. I've been told to expect 2-4 games/practices per week.
Team Manager Needed! The team (and coaches) will need the help of a parent volunteer to help with managing the team. This jack-of-all-trades will help with scheduling, communication, and other needs that arise over the course of the season. Please let me know if you are willing to play that role for our team this season.
Thank you, and you will be hearing from me again soon with more details. Please let me know if you have any questions.
