CONDITIONING BEGINS MONDAY - IS YOUR PAPERWORK SUBMITTED?

Conditioning for baseball begins at 3:30 p.m. Monday.  There is a golden rule in Tracy Unified School Athletics:  "If a student-athlete is missing anything (even a concussion form), it is the coaches utmost professional responsibility to keep the student-athlete from participating until the form(s) are turned in.    The athletic director will not allow any athlete to condition, practice, or play without all paperwork turned in.  Need the paperwork?  Find it here.

Next year this process will go all electronic.

2015 VARSITY COACHES

Tony Crivello Returns As Assistant Varsity Coach
2015 brings some changes to the assistant coaching staff at the varsity level.  The baseball program welcomes back Tony Crivello who played a significant role with Vic and Stevie Alkire bringing the baseball program to prominence in the 2006-2012 era.  Tony took a break from coaching at Tracy High for a couple of years and is now back.  A new face this year is Joel Hight who will be joining returning assistant coaches Chris Anklam and Kenny Serrano.

COACH ALKIRE RETURNS FOR 22ND SEASON WITH 310 CAREER WINS AND COUNTING

Vic Alkire Returns to Coach the Bulldogs in 2015

When you average 20 wins a season, the career victories add up fast.  That is exactly what has happened to Vic Alkire in the latter part of his coaching career, especially the last five to six years.  It was 2009 when Vic achieved the 200 win milestone.  It only took five years to arrive at the front door of the next major plateau of 300 wins last spring.  "It has gone by really fast, said a satisfied Alkire.  "The last 10 plus years of my 21 year coaching career have flown by because I've been having so much fun.  I primarily contribute it to my assistant coaches, the fans, and our active booster club.  I've been fortunate to surround myself with good people.  There are many of my peers in coaching that I've seen come and go because they can't deal with all the off the field responsibilties of being a head coach."

Another factor that Alkire points to regarding his happiness in coaching has been the role of the Athletic Director at the High School.  "I've coached under four of them.  Don Nicholson, Manuel Costa, Mark Stroup, and Gary Henderson.  All have been very supportive of the baseball program, but possibly none more so than our current A.D. Gary Henderson.  He has been right there willing to do whatever it takes to make our program successful during the move off campus," said Alkire. 

"I'm so lucky to coach baseball.  My playing days have long since past me by, but I get the opportunity to still smell the grass, stay involved strategically in the game, and get the infield dirt mixed into my hands.  It keeps me young," said Alkire.

"When I started coaching in 1994 I thought I was going to do this for two to three years.  Boy was I wrong."

WEBSITE BEGINS 9TH YEAR OF BASEBALL COVERAGE

In 2007 I launched this website with a few photos of the games and scoring recaps.    It quickly grew into a much larger endeavor and would eventually expand to other Tracy High Sport websites, photo journalism gigs, a new TCAL website, and much more.  

As this baseball website enters it's 9th year and approaches 400,000 web hits I thank you the viewers for visiting frequently for updates on our baseball program.  I encourage your feedback on my coverage.  Feel free to offer information that you think would be of interest to others, activities of our baseball alumni, and always let me know if you find errors.  

This is a volunteer gig and I can't make all the games due to my day job, but I will update the site daily with information flowing in from the coaches at all three levels and any input you provide that might enhance the website.

If you know someone that would like to run an add at the top of my page, the ad donation helps to offset my costs for web and multimedia fees and equipment.  I'll create and post the ad for $100/year which will also include coverage on the highly popular Tracy High Football website through next year.  Recent advertisers have included real estate companies, hair stylists, insurance companies, restaurants, car dealerships, and other local businesses. 

As the February season draws near, the coverage will pick up in pace and game recaps will include photos, stats, and coaches summaries.  I also try to keep up on our opponents and provide you with insight from other high school sources.

Thanks for viewing my tracyhighbaseball.com website - Stu
