Will You Be Ready When Your Opportunity Arises?

“In playing ball, or in life, a person occasionally gets the opportunity to do something great. When that time comes, only two things matter: being prepared to seize the moment and having the courage to take your best swing.” - Hank Aaron


What WE Do:

We must practice as we expect to perform in games and that is simply competitive, aggressive, mature, effective, and efficient.  We don’t leave practices, games, careers saying, “I would’ve . . . I could’ve  . . . I should’ve . . . “  We leave practices, games, and careers saying, “We did…”

We practice in a positive manner to achieve positive results.  We completely support one another, yet we strive to meet our individual goals.


Social Media Guidelines

"Treat every conversation you have on social media as if it were a nationally televised press conference."

Tips for avoiding social media mishaps:

  • Don't post anything you wouldn't say to your family, a coach, employer, or media.
  • Set security settings so only friends can see social media activity.
  • Your followers and your friends are a reflection of you.
  • Avoid any negative posts and any opinion on a controversial subject or topic.
  • Don't post when emotional.
  • If you are second-guessing a possible post, don't post it.
  • Ask for guidance from a coach or administrator if you are uncertain about how to respond to something.

Saber Baseball Code

  • Students First – Athletes Second
  • Be an example of Integrity and Class:
    • You represent yourself, your family, your school, your community, your coaches, and our baseball program – so do it with dignity, loyalty, trust, and pride.
    • Always do the right thing . . . especially when nobody is looking.
  • Challenge yourself and your teammates to be better each dayLeave each practice knowing that NO ONE out-worked you.
