Several years ago, Minor B initiated a combined team warm-up prior to the start of each game. This warm-up emphasizes skill development for all players. In baseball, it is quite possible for a player to go through an entire game without catching, throwing or hitting a baseball! Through the use of the combined warm-up, we ensure that all players have an opportunity to practice a variety of essential baseball skills each time they have a game time. As an added bonus, by combining this warm-up practice with the other team, players have a chance to benefit from the expertise of a wider circle of coaches.
These warm-up practices are considered to be an essential part of the Minor B game time. Therefore, a team who does not have 8 players present at the start of this practice, will be considered to have forfeited the game. Game times that are listed on the schedule represent the start of the combined warm-up practice.
