Welcome to 2019 Mustang Baseball

We can smell the turf: Baseball is around the corner and we want to make sure everyone is ready for tryouts on Feb. 25 and the start of the 2019 season.

Register for Spring Sports

Registration for Spring 2019 sports is now open. The RHS Athletics Office has posted a Word document with everything you need to know about getting eligible for baseball. Step by step, it will help you navigate the confusing and not-very-intuitive online registration process in Parent Access. Download it here:

Pro tip: Don’t wait

In addition to submitting the necessary registration forms online, you’ll need to download and complete a medical history and physician evaluation form:

The medical history is required once a year; physicals expire every two years and must be current through the last possible day of the baseball season (May 25).

The last day to register for baseball is Feb. 22. Make your appointments, fill out forms, pay fees and fines, and turn in everything well in advance. You won’t be able to try out unless your registration material has been processed.

Sports Participation Fee

LWSD charges a $200 participation fee to play high school sports. Fees are collected on a per-sport basis and cover some of the expenses necessary to field a team. Baseball is a cut sport, which means that this fee is not due until the player makes a roster. If you have questions about fees, caps for families and multi-sport athletes, or waiver requests, contact the RHS Athletics Office for help.

Check the list

How do you know if you’re cleared to try out? The names of eligible students are posted in the window across from the bookkeeper’s office. When in doubt, check the list.



2019 Tryout Schedule

Tryouts for the 2019 season start at 2:45 p.m. on Feb. 25 and continue on Feb. 26 and 27. They will take place at Hartman Park and the RHS baseball field—the coaches will tell you exactly where you need to be. Varsity, JV, and C-team rosters will be posted on this site on Feb. 27 once tryouts conclude.

  • Feb. 25: All players report at 2:45 p.m., ready to go. We’ll hold a meeting and tryouts at RHS; check back here or your email for the specific location. The workout ends at dusk.
  • Feb. 26-27: Tryouts for Freshmen and Sophomores are scheduled from 2:45-4:30 p.m., Juniors and Seniors from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Feb. 28: First official day of practice, 2:45-5:30 p.m. This will also be our tryout makeup day in case of bad weather.

Tips for Tryouts

  • Make sure you’re registered for Spring sports. You can’t try out unless you’re eligible.
  • Know where you need to go and be there early to sign in, get organized, and help set up. Check this site or your email for specifics as we get closer to tryout day.
  • Wear a shirt with a number on it.
  • Wear baseball gear. That means baseball pants, cleats (no metal spikes, please), a hat, batting helmet, cup, and belt. Break in your new shoes, gloves, and other equipment well in advance.
  • The program doesn’t supply bats, helmets, gloves, catchers gear, or other personal equipment during tryouts. If you need something, work it out with a returning player.
  • You can drop off your gear with a coach at 7:15 a.m. outside the boy’s locker room on each day of tryouts and we’ll secure your bag during the school day. Be sure to confirm with the coach when and where to retrieve it; you’re responsible for getting your gear to the field.
  • Have fun! It takes no extra skill to hustle, show leadership, and be a great teammate. These qualities are more rare than you think.
  • Be ready to commit. Not everyone makes a team, and not everyone makes the team they expect. When you try out, we presume that you’re committed to practicing and competing all season no matter which team you’re on.
  • Finally, it’s a busy week. Rest up, eat well, and get your homework and other obligations squared away so you’re mentally alert and physically ready to do your best.
