Report
In March of 2015, the Broadalbin-Perth varsity
baseball team will be traveling to Myrtle Beach, SC
for a unique Spring Training Experience. The
team will leave on 3/26/15, and return on
3/29/15. This trip is for players on the varsity
team only.
Last year’s trip was a memorable one. The
coaching staff hopes to make this year’s trip just as
memorable, making memories that will last a
lifetime.
Only the 2015 varsity team, and
its coaching staff will attend the
trip. We are also trying to arrange
for an athletic trainer to travel
with the team. Parents are
welcome to attend as well, but
must make accommodations on
their own.
The 2015 varsity baseball team will be
chosen just as it would during any
other season. Only those players who
show a commitment to the team, an
ability to help the team win, and the
character we demand will be chosen as
members of the team. All players,
grades 7-12, are eligible to make the
team.
The team will…
•
Enjoy the finest facilities on the east coast for
Spring Training baseball.
•
Be housed as a team with supervision. Players
will be in rooms of 8. Coaches will be in rooms
near by. Unscheduled door checks will be
conducted nightly.
•
Play 4 scrimmages, and hold 2 practices.
•
Participate in mandatory study hours.
•
Enjoy team-oriented recreation and meals.

All money needed for the trip can be raised by the players!!!
The Baseball program will participate in 2
fund raisers which can raise all of the
money for each player.
•
•
Players who raise funds, and make the 2015 varsity
team, will have 100% of their funds allotted to the
trip, up to $700.00.
Players who raise funds, but do not make the varsity
team, will have 20% of all money they raise earmarked
in their name. The money will continue to roll over
and accumulate until the player either makes the
varsity team in the year of a trip, or leaves the program
through being cut, quitting, graduating, or being
removed from the program for disciplinary reasons.
• All money raised is at the jurisdiction of the
Broadalbin-Perth Central School District. The
program is choosing to use money raised to fund
this trip. No money, at any time or for any
reason, will be refunded to the player or his family
if he does not go on the trip, does not make the
team, or for any other reason.
• Any player who commits to the trip, but does not
meet the fundraising deadline, will be obligated to
pay the balance out of pocket.
th
5 Annual BP-Baseball, “Theo
Higgins” Memorial Golf Tournament
Players will be asked to earn sponsorships for
various parts of the golf course. Sponsorships
should be a minimum of $100.00. All
sponsorship checks should be made out to BP
Baseball. Formal sponsor requests letters can
be printed from www.bp-baseball.com.
BP-Baseball, Yankee Candle Sale
Players will sell Yankee Candles and
accessories. This 40% of all money goes to the
program. We have challenged each player to
sell 500 dollars during the sale, yielding a 200
dollar profit.
Special thanks to Joanne Schmidt and Kylene
Morreale for helping to organize this great
opportunity!
All money for the trip must be raised according to the
schedule below. Any player who intends on traveling
on the trip must meet the payment deadlines. If a
player has raised the money needed by the dates
suggested, then he owes nothing. However, if a player
is short on the dates listed, he will be asked to pay
from pocket to meet the deadlines.

The team will be flying to SC together:
• The team has purchased tickets through US
Airways, and will be traveling from Albany,
NY, to Florence, SC.
• Tickets have already been purchased, and the
deposit for each has already been paid.
• While in SC, the team will be travelling on 3
minivans driven by school personnel.
Parents must sign a waiver for their children
to ride in these vans.
The team will be staying at Myrtlewood
Villas, sponsored by The Ripken
Experience:
• Room assignments will be dictated by the
coaching staff. Players must abide by these
arrangements.
• Players must lodge with the team. No
players may stay with parents or family.
• Strict schedules will be set by the coaching
staff for meals, bed times, and wake up
times.
All meals will be eaten as a team. Parents are
welcome to join.
• Breakfast is complementary at the hotel.
• Lunches will be had at the Ripken facility concession
stand.
• Dinners will be at local restaurants in the Myrtle Beach
area. We will do our best to locate restaurants that
accommodate large groups at reasonable prices.
• All lunches and dinners will be paid for by the players.
Players must be prepared to purchase 7 meals at roughly
10 dollars each.
All recreation time will be scheduled in
advance, and will be spent as a team.
• Most free time will be spent together at the hotel
relaxing, and spending time recovering. The time
in SC will be physically demanding, especially on
pitchers, and players will need ample rest.
• If time and weather allow, the team may enjoy
some activities together. We will likely visit the
Boardwalk, and Broadway at the Beach.
• Players must stay with the team at all times.
Play time will be awarded the way it would
be in any other game during the season
• The coaching staff cannot guarantee that play
time will be equal for each player, or that a
player will play in the position he desires.
• We will attempt to accommodate each player
within reason, understanding that for many,
this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
• As always, playtime is at the discretion of the
coaching staff, and is not open for discussion.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to
attend the trip.
• Parents are more than welcome to fly with the team.
Please see the flight itinerary for flight numbers. As of
last week, there were a few seats available on the flights.
• Parents are welcome to stay at the same hotel as the team,
but must make their own arrangements to do so. The
facility accommodates only player and coaches at the rate
they advertise. The hotel we stay at is a condo complex,
and space is very limited.
• If parents arrange to attend the trip, and pay, but their
child does not make the team, there will be no refunds.
Paying in advance for air fare, lodging, or anything else
does not ensure that your child will make the team.
