The 2021 High School Baseball Season starts April 5. I am not sure of the baseball field we are going to be practicing at or the time (TBA). Those playing high school football or soccer will not be able to begin baseball practice until their sport is completely over (there is an overflow with the sports and the dates). Once your sport is completed, you aren't going to get much rest time because baseball games start very soon afterward. The baseball schedule is not totally complete because of the changing seasons with sports and new rules coming down by the IHSA. Anyone who has not played a high school sport (Golf, Basketball, Football, or Soccer) must get a sport physical to be allowed to practice or play baseball. If there are any questions, my cell is 217 497 2530 or contact me via email - email@example.com. Call, text, or email me if I have not already talked to you because there are Westville Documents and Forms that you and your parents/guardians must fill out. Thanks, Coach Brazas
