St. Joseph Fighting Irish Baseball
Welcome to a new season of Irish Baseball. I would like to thank you for the desire to play the game that is different from all others. Baseball is a TEAM sport; No player shall ever be put in front of the TEAM and their goals. The privilege of playing baseball can be revoked at anytime by the coach, or by the TEAM. We play together, lose together, and win together; never will any one player jeopardize this philosophy or the TEAM CONCEPT.
I believe in the 3-D concept for success in sports.
Desire- the willingness to play, learn and be successful
Dedication-show up on time for all events
Discipline- do what is asked and little things right.
Playing "small ball" is a function of baseball that has to be developed and master in order to continue to strive at a championship caliber team. What small ball means learning how to bunt, how to play the bunt, base stealing, hit and run, and how to pick off base runners.
As an Irish baseball player you are asked to conduct yourself in a manner in which when seen you are a role model to younger ball players and peers. Conduct that you represent the St. Joseph School system, your coaching staff and yourself with pride, dignity and ability that no one will ever doubt. This conduct will instill the moral, social, and pride that will drive success as a player and a person.
