Dear Cubs fans,
Good afternoon. We've just received an email that our practice scheduled for this afternoon at 6:00 p.m. has unfortunately been cancelled due to rain. Other teams have booked the field for tomorrow afternoon. We'd ordinarily try to squeeze in a joint practice with them, but, of course, these aren't ordinary times.
We'll see you at Upper Broadmeadow on Monday at 5:15 p.m. for our first game. The game is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m., but we'll need some extra time to go over safety protocols again and get in a few more repetitions. We strongly encourage you to engage in some baseball activities with your boys this holiday weekend: catch and whiffle ball are great ways to help rebuild their skills.
And since our kids have become experts at watching YouTube videos during lockdown, we suggest they watch some of these to prepare them for games:

Finally, here's a compilation of the results of players not listening to their coaches: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5ZwNfzusLQ
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend,
P.S. If anyone still needs a helmet, Coach Ayres may have one for you. Feel free to text him at 617.970.0063.
