Inaugural Edition: October 2019

One Complex, One Community

Melrose Incarnation Baseball is a community of families and players who share the three fields at The Inc every spring from April through June. While we have a fantastic group of coaches and parents, the learning our players receive cannot be limited to what they receive on the field. This newsletter, "Field 4", is our way of connecting with Inc families and finding ways to expand kids' exposure beyond The Inc and into neighborhoods, backyards, and dinner conversations across Melrose.

Field 3 Overhaul Underway!

Field 3 Overhaul Underway!

The rains of Spring 2019 proved more than Field 3 could handle; we needed better. An overhaul of Field 3 is in the works to ensure great playing experiences for our Farm League & Coach Pitch players in 2020! Dependent on weather, work will begin in November or March.

Go Ahead, Try This at Home!

Before the Incarnation season kicks off, we've got fall and winter to get through! Below are some tips and tricks to keep your children engaged, excited, and ready to play next spring!

Play more sports!

There are a bevy of benefits for kids who play multiple sports. These include becoming better overall athletes from engaging in multiple disciplines; learning to be smarter and more creative players; and staying more active and having more fun in athletics.  Read More >>

Think ahead for the holidays.

The holidays are a great chance for players to reassess their preparedness for next season by adding a few new pieces of gear to their holiday lists. Plan ahead for foot size changes (cleats), a new glove, batting gloves as a "stocking stuffer", or a new bat for a great present. Alternatively, if gear isn't in the budget, keep your child engaged and excited for baseball with a couple books featuring baseball, or some great new Inc gear from our friends at Mothership of All Design!

Keep your glove in good shape.

As winter approaches it is very important for baseball players to make sure their glove is properly cared for and stored, so that when spring comes around they can go back to playing catch without missing a beat.  Read More >>

Sign up to be a coach or a volunteer

Some kids respond best when their parent is right there on the sidelines with them; other kids need the helping hand of a non-parent to guide the way. If you're eager to help be part of shaping your child's baseball experience, when you register them, register yourself to be a coach or assistant coach as well; particularly at the younger levels. The Inc can always use more helping hands.

You're Joking!

Baseball Trivia

Jackie Mitchell, a 17-year-old female pitcher for the AA Chattanooga Lookouts, once played the New York Yankees in an exhibition game and struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in succession.

By combining the levity of props, jokes, and mottos with the ideals of what baseball is really about, Coach Ballgame connects with kids to achieve his mission: getting them to love baseball.

That's a Fact!

While at the professional level, MLB interest is failing to compete with the NFL and NBA, according to the Aspen Institute, 13.6% of kids aged 6-12 played baseball in 2018, a 3% increase from 2015.
