VII. Ideas for improving the Baseball program (i.e. What are we going to do with
     the money?)

          a. Coach Stecher shared some ideas of his wish list for the program:

                 i. Field Improvements

                       1. Brick backstop on the Varsity Field
                       2. Dugouts painted inside
                       3. Backstop fence and wood painted
                       4. Chain link fence around the field
                       5. Heavy Duty vinyl drape over backstop fence to help
                          the outfielders pick up ball
                       6. Electronic scoreboard
                       7. Laser level field
                       8. New infield-Bermuda?
                       9. Home side bull pen improvements
                       10. Batting cage improvements

                ii. Equipment needs

                       1. Official Baseballs
                       2. Pitching Machine Baseballs
                       3. 3 Functioning Pitching Machines (2 broken)

                iii. For the players

                       1. Senior watches
                       2. Jackets
                       3. Bats (2 new ones for Varsity, 1 for JV and 1 for

                iv. Other: Hire additional coaches for each level

          b. Discussed how to accomplish and focus on a few that can be
             accomplished this year. Also discussed the importance of trying to
             involve projects that help the entire program (freshman, JV and
             Varsity). Obviously field improvements to the one field helps JV
             and Varsity. Batting cages will help all levels. Discussed some
             ideas that already have been approved by the school such as the
             school doing the painting requests. Mr. Kidd having permission to
             build the brick backstop. Mr. Kamiyama will look into repairing the
             two broken Jugs pitching machines. Mr Crammer will look into
             getting either donated or very discounted baseball items such as
             baseballs, bats, pitching machine balls from local businesses.
             Discussed possibly moving ads from out field to backstop area
             which can double up as the backstop tarp temporily until a larger
             one piece can be purchased. More discussion on this topic at
             future meetings.

VIII. Next Meeting

     March 27, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in Coach Stecher’s room next to weight room.
