Launching the 2019 Season

January 18, 2019
This is the official kick-off the 2019 season for your Post 43 Jackson Giants.
First, please plan to attend the mandatory Player/Parent Meeting Sunday January 27 @ 4pm @ JH Middle School commons.  Coach Huggins and board members will cover important details for the upcoming season.  This includes team composition, fees, winter workouts, fundraising calendar, volunteer roles & responsibilities and a preliminary game schedule for spring/summer.
Second, team composition. This season, Jackson will field three teams:  Varsity, 17U, and 15U. Both teams play a full schedule throughout the mountain west and finish the season competing in their respective state tournaments.
Finally, think for a moment, about your last experience at a Giants baseball game.  The field was perfectly manicured and ready for action. The press box buzzed with an energetic announcer and you bopped your head to music between innings.  You probably grabbed a burger or dog at the concession stand, maybe even one of our famous walking tacos.  Pretty fun, eh?  This is all made possible by one thing:  you.  Our volunteers.

We ask each family  to contribute 10 volunteer hours throughout the season.  This 10 hours may seem dear right now but when you consider the length of our season, it equates to 2-3 hours per month.  Nothing to it.  Furthermore, baseball parents are awesome people so you’ll get a chance to meet some new faces and actually have a bit of fun.
Can’t wait to see you on January 27 at 4pm in the JH Middle School commons.
