TAHLEQUAH — The Northeastern State University baseball team is set to conduct its annual instructional fall league for high school students.
The league is open to individuals of all abilities who will graduate high school from 2013-16. The NSU baseball coaching staff will conduct the league at a cost of $130, and all participants will receive a free NSU baseball t-shirt.
“This is a great opportunity for a player to come and improve his game in a positive environment,” Head Baseball Coach Travis Janssen said. “The emphasis of the league is based on instruction, team play and improvement. Winning and losing will not be emphasized.”
The league will begin on Sept. 9 and will run five successive Sundays through Oct. 7. The first day will be an evaluation process to determine the individual skill level of each player. After the first week, the fall camp will consist of specialized instruction and competition.
Each game will be either six innings long or will conclude after two hours. In-game instruction will be constant throughout the contests, and each team will have a minimum number of players on the roster to ensure ample playing time. Batting all the way through the order and free substitution will be utilized.
“Hustle and enthusiasm will be encouraged,” Janssen said. “This is an opportunity for a player that wants to improve his level of play and knowledge of baseball.”
Reserve your spot today in the fall league. To register, or for more information, contact Travis Janssen at 918-444-3910 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
