SATURDAY FEEDBACK

There were some last second schedule changes this morning around the 8 a.m. hour but things got sorted out on the direction for the day.  The freshman stayed home and had their own workout which resulted in a final adjustment in the roster (see freshman page for updated roster).  The varsity and sophomores traveled to Brentwood to scrimmage Liberty.  "We threw one pitcher an inning for 7 innings to get a feel for what we had in arms," said Varsity Coach Alkire.  "I was pleased with the amount of strikes the guys threw and the lack of walks that we gave up."

 Alkire also had time to reflect on the weather and potential field damage.  "I decided with the forecast for more rain this weekend to postpone the Kimball scrimmage on Monday.  We would almost certainly put unnecessary wear on our field due to the water on the field.  We will scrimmage on Thursday vs Kimball."


JV Coach Bauer was very pleased with what he saw in his scrimmage on Saturday afternoon.  "We did a lot of good things today.  Every issue that did come up has a fix that is easily coachable.  It's clear what we need to work on and I'm confident we can make improvements," said the new Tracy coach who joins the Bulldog staff from East Union High.  

"We had good work from our pitchers who I generally restricted to 30 pitches.  Kyle Mulhern was phenomenal today on the hill.  Another bright spot was the lack of errors we had on defense.  It was good to see our players respond during the course of the game to the adjustments we were trying to implement.  It's not always easy for a player to make an adjustment mid-game."  

"I like the flexibility we have in our roster for our players to start in multiple positions.  This will serve them well as they move up to varsity."

COACH ALKIRE PREPARES FOR 24TH SEASON

image_name2
Coaches Serrano, Alkire, Crivello, and Goulding

Coach Alkire is just hours away from entering his 24th season at the helm of the Bulldog baseball program.  It was a little over 10 years ago when the program really began to have consistent success and the Dogs became an annual contender in the playoffs culminating in a South Section Championship last year.  If he can gain a win in the first game later this month, Vic will achieve his 360th career win placing him certainly in select coaching company in the region.  

The program looks to be on excellent footing entering the pre-season this year with over 80 kids entering the tryout phase which begins Monday.    "We have 33 student athletes joining us to participate in varsity tryouts, the sophomores have 18, and the freshmen have 31.  It's great to have that many interested athletes that want to play baseball, unfortunately some difficult decisions will loom ahead when rosters have to be trimmed down to a reasonable size closer to February 14," said Alkire.

Joining Coach Alkire in coaching duties this year is long time assistant Tony Crivello, John Goulding, and Kenny Serrano.  Chris Anklam who has been with Tracy for several years is now on staff with Lincoln High.

WEBSITE SPONSORS APPRECIATED

Every year I ask if anyone is interested in placing an ad at the top of this website to promote their business or service.  For $100 your ad will run at the top of this website and the tracyhighfootball.com website for a year.   Between the two websites, your ad may be viewed by over 100,000 visitors in the year.    The sponsorship helps to cover the expenses I have in providing volunteer multimedia coverage of Tracy High sports.

Contact me and I'll explain how I can post your information in the rectangular format you see at the top of this website.  A couple of sponsorships a year really help.  Thanks.  stujossey@tracyhighbaseball.com or 209-609-1456

There are several returning varsity players who have already logged numerous at bats (>50 plate appearances) in a varsity uniform.
