Dunwoody Wildcats Varsity Loses Lead Early in Defeat

This Week in Wildcat Baseball

 

 

Team Snap

Every parent and player is required to have a Team Snap account for this season.  Important game and practice updates will be conveyed to parents and players via Team Snap.   Varsity has already received important updates regarding tomorrow's game.  Freshmen have received important details regarding carpool for Monday's game vs Holy Innocents'.    Check Team Snap for details please.

 

 

 

Pants ordered with Spirit Wear

The Spirit Wear orders will be fulfilled in stages.  The pants have arrived!  Debbie Arant will have pants for all who ordered available outside the gym on Monday afternoon.   Even if games/practice are cancelled, all players who ordered pants should find Debbie Arant outside the gym between 2:30 and 3:30 to pick up their pants.   She'll be there early since Freshmen and Varsity have games scheduled tomorrow.

 

 

 

Varsity Monday Game

Every Varsity Parent and Player who subscribes to Team Snap should know already that Monday's game vs Norcross may be moved to Lake Point.  We will let you know ASAP if Coach English is able to get buses.   If you do NOT have Team Snap enabled with SMS, Email or in App notifications please do so NOW because all game and practice updates for the rest of the season will be via Team Snap.

 

 

 

Concession Player Accounts


From now until the end of the season you will get an email from Jim or Carol McCloskey once a week with an attached spreadsheet listing your baseball player's amount in their concession account.  It will show how much they spent that week and if more money needs to be added to the account due to a negative balance.  
 
For the four families with multiple boys playing, we have combined the balances.  If you prefer to keep those separate, no problem, just let us know as soon as possible.
 
The player numbers are just noted to help the concession staff.  Please let me know if any number is wrong.  Also we will add Freshman numbers once provided.  (Note - if a player is called up to another team, the jersey number that he wears on that team may not be his regular number listed on the sheets.)
 
Please do these things for us:  
 
1.  Take a peek before we get going with the first home game this week and make sure that the balance is what you expect.  If your baseball player played baseball last spring, and had a balance in his account, that balance was carried over.  
 
2.  Look at your balances each week.  Sometimes mistakes are made, but we can't go back at the end of the season to fix a disputed amount.  It's up to all of us to check them each week.  
 
3.  If you wish to add more money to your baseball player's account, please take the money directly to the concession stand.  (Checks are acceptable - Dunwoody Diamond Club).  Please make sure you see the concession stand attendant mark the deposited amount on the concession sheet before you leave.  
 
4.  Please stay on top of any negative balance.  The concession accounts are designed to make it easy for the players and families to grab a bite without worrying about carrying wallets or cash to the field.  However, they are not to be used as a credit card!  
 
Finally, for those of you who are new to DHS Baseball, welcome!  I have provided the rules for the concession accounts below but they are also listed with the clipboard in the concession stand.
 
Thanks and GO WILDCATS!

Notes on Handout from Kickoff Meeting

Dues:

The costs of maintaining a first-class baseball program are substantial and continue to escalate. Many baseball program dues have been significantly higher than Dunwoody’s for several years, and ours is still one of the lowest in our region. The volunteer efforts by parents throughout the year are essential to the Diamond Club’s fundraising initiatives. Your efforts and contributions are very much appreciated, and those efforts enable the Diamond Club to keep spring player dues as low as possible. Spring player dues make up less than a quarter of the total revenue of the Diamond Club. To ease the cost of dues, each player in the baseball program can re-sale their Wildcat Cards. 

 

Spring Program Dues cover players pack items, pre-game meals, and the end-of-season banquet.

 

Player Pack:

Included with each player's dues will be the following items in the “Player Pack”.  Coach English sized all the players and will be ordering these items ASAP.  

 

  • New Balance Cleat
  • New Balance Short Sleeve Tee
  • New Balance Long Sleeve Tee
  • New Balance Tech Short
  • The Game Fitted Baseball Hat
  • New Balance Long Sleeve Batting Jacket (Varsity Only)

 

Pre-game Meals:

 

As part of your dues, we provide players with a meal before every weekday game. Pre-game meals are not provided for Saturday games. Parent volunteers will be asked to coordinate delivery of game day meals for the players. A typical meal consists of a sandwich, chips, fruit or cookie and drink.

 

End-of-Season Awards Banquet:

 

Dues also include the cost of the banquet for each player, awards and recognition. The estimated cost for parents and others to attend the banquet is $25 each. The date for the banquet will be announced at the end of the season. The banquet will be at DHS, it will be catered in the cafeteria, and the award ceremony will be in the auditorium.

 

Pre-Pay Concession:

 

We will continue to offer the debit system for players.  Players utilizing the debit system must pre-pay into their “Concession Stand Account”. For example, a player may start the season by pre-paying $25. The concession volunteer will debit the account each time the player makes a purchase. The account may be replenished throughout the season.  Charges are not allowed once the account reaches $0. The account will have to be replenished before more debits can be made. Seniors who have money remaining on their account at the end of the season will receive a refund. All other players with money remaining on accounts will be carried over to the next season.
 

Wildcat Cards:

  • We lost/took off 5 sponsors:  d’Vine, CiCi’s, Burger King, Outback & Grecian Gyro.
  •  We gained 5 new sponsors:  Goldberg Bagels, Farm Burger, Empire Pizza, Press Blend Squeeze & Face Haven
  • We have 3-5 card hand outs:  Crema, Orange Theory, Press Blend Squeeze, Face Haven and some left overs from last year.

 Reach out to your past purchasers, friends and neighbors.  NO POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA YET, PLEASE.  WE WANT ALL KIDS TO HAVE A FAIR CHANCE TO SELL THEIR FIRST 25 BEFORE WE ALLOW SOCIAL MEDIA SALES.  ONCE THE MIDDLE SCHOOL PLAYERS HAVE HAD A WEEK TO SELL WE'LL ALLOW SOCIAL MEDIA.

Included in your dues is the price of 25 cards for $20 each ($500).  Once the original 25 are sold, players may purchase more cards from the Diamond Club for $10 each and sell them for $20 (not a penny more). Therefore players/parents can earn $10 per card sold above their original 25.  This is a TERRIFIC way to offset the price of dues.  The cards are very popular and well worth $20.
 

Tournaments for Varsity Players:

2018

  • Early Season Tourney: three-day trip to Brunswick, GA.
  • Spring Break Week: players will have until Wednesday off, East Cobb Tournament Thursday-Saturday.

2019 (anticipated):

  • Four games of the Varsity schedule will be played in South Florida during Spring Break against highly ranked 6-A Florida teams.

Varsity players must pay an additional “trip fee” to partially offset the cost of the trips. Note the fee does NOT include meals, drinks, entertainment, or miscellaneous items. Each player will be expected to have sufficient funds with them on the trip. Details on trip arrangements will be provided in advance.

Outstanding Balances:

Any outstanding balance from a previous season will be reflected on your invoice and must be paid at the Kick- off Meeting. Example: Skipping a concession duty and an “Approved Teen Worker” was paid in your absence, etc.
 

Ways to Reduce Dues:

  1. You may request additional wildcat cards at a reduced purchase price of $10 and resale for $20.
  2. You may sell additional team sponsorships (banners or signage) and receive 10% of the sponsorship applied to player dues up to the total amount of dues. See Bill Gavlak for details.
  3. Many parents in the past have used their employers “giving programs” that match funds.

 

Uniforms:

DeKalb County will provide each player on each team with a jersey and a few helmets for each team to share.  If your son wants his own helmet he can order via our TEAM STORE.  Baseball pants are not provided by the county and are NOT in the Player Pack.  This year all players will be responsible for providing their own pants.   You can purchase from wherever you like but they will also be available in our team store.  All three teams need white pants with navy piping (long or knickers, your choice).   Additionally, Varsity players need grey pants with navy piping (long or knickers, your choice).

 

Team Store:

Following is the link that will allow you to order spirit wear for the season, duplicate items from the player pack, plus a few "extra gear" items like stirrup socks, batting helmets, batting gloves, knickers (short baseball pants), regular baseball pants, etc.  (None of these items are required but a portion of every order from the online store will be donated back to our program as a fundraiser).  Team store link:  https://dunwoodybaseballstore.itemorder.com/sale

Johnathan Langley: Learning The Value In Serving Others

Our Stories: Johnathan Langley

Johnathan Langley
Georgia Tech baseball

“Our Stories" is a RamblinWreck.com feature that provides first-person stories from current Georgia Tech student-athletes on their journey through academics, competition and life once their athletic careers are over. These young men and women represent the ideals of what it means to be a STUDENT-athlete at Georgia Tech. These are their stories.

Johnathan Langley: Learning The Value In Serving Others

As a young kid growing up in Atlanta, my dream was to be a Georgia Tech baseball player. While I never found a spot on the official roster, the lessons I’ve learned from my position on the team have been invaluable.

My freshman year at Georgia Tech, I walked into head coach Danny Hall’s office and asked how I could walk on to the baseball team. There was no doubt in my mind I wanted to continue playing baseball for as long as I could. I started when I was four years old and began catching when I was eight. What really drew me to the catcher position was getting to be a quarterback of the field, directing players and telling them where they need to be positioned. I stuck with catcher throughout little league and travel ball, and when Coach Hall and assistant coach Jason Howell told me where I’d fit best on the team, it was as the team’s catcher…for the bullpen.

I’ll admit being the bullpen catcher wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I went to try out for the team. I’d never be listed on the roster and never have my chance to take an at-bat in a Georgia Tech uniform. I had to transition from batting fourth in high school to assisting pitchers through warm-ups. At the time, I thought, it wasn’t ideal. But as a senior, I’ve put the incredible opportunity I’ve been given into perspective. Being a member of the Georgia Tech baseball team has allowed me to grow on a personal level and on a spiritual level, and the impact I’ve made on this campus has stretched far beyond the confines of the bullpen.

   

In high school, I was recruited by some smaller schools, but earning a strong education was a primary goal for me, and thus, Georgia Tech was always at the top of my list. Since becoming a student-athlete I’ve gotten involved in organizations like the Student-Athlete Advisory Board, as well as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and 925. Both FCA with campus director Keith Brown and 925, a bible study lead by our player development coach Steve Tamborra, have been crucial in helping me grow in my faith, live out my faith in God and act on it daily, which has helped me tremendously during my time at Georgia Tech.

I don’t know exactly where my future will lead me after I graduate from Georgia Tech, but I know that because of my experience on the baseball team, including the leadership roles I’ve taken on as a student-athlete, I’ve realized that I want to do something where I’m helping others. From playing a supporting role on the team to traveling to Costa Rica this past summer—my first time out of the country—as part of the Jackets Without Borders program, I’ve learned the immense value in serving others. I don’t need to hit the walk-off home run to put a smile on someone’s face. It’s the small moments, the advice I give to a struggling pitcher or an upcoming freshman, and the bonds I make with my teammates and other student-athletes that truly mean the most.

If I had it my way, the end of this baseball season won’t mark my last time as a part of a baseball organization. I’d like to get into coaching, something I, in some ways, have been doing for four years as I’ve worked with the pitching coach to set the Georgia Tech pitchers up for a successful outing on the mound. Perhaps I’ll continue catching as a bullpen catcher for a professional team. Either way, I’ve begun to embrace the role of serving others without needing to be in the spotlight. In turn, I’ve realized that I get just as much out of helping people as they do.

From the campus organizations I’ve been able to be a part of to the trips I’ve taken to the long-lasting relationships I’ve built, I can be nothing but grateful that I stepped into Coach Hall’s office freshman year asking for a spot on the team. Baseball has provided me with much more than a catcher’s mitt, and if I can find a way to keep doing what I love, I won’t be straying too far from the bullpen anytime soon.
