Congratulations to the following players for making their respective teams:
Who Can Play:
Red Dirt is the summer baseball program for our players here at Norman North, as well as the incoming middle schoolers and incoming freshman identified above.
What Are the Teams:
All of our teams will play in the Red Dirt League. We will have 5 teams in the summer program. The teams will be:
Varsity 1 Team
Varsity 2 Team
Freshman Team— those who will be entering their freshman year
Middle School team—incoming middle schoolers at Whittier and Longfellow Middle Schools
**We will place the players on the team that we feel is best for them, as well as Norman North Baseball.
$TBD and is due May TBD (May TBD for accepted incoming 8th and 9th graders). Checks made out to Norman North Summer Baseball or pay via Venmo @nnsummerbaseball .
This covers league entry fees and insurance, field rental fees, coaching stipends, equipment, field materials, field maintenance, and jersey.
What to Bring:
Each player needs to provide the following items: solid white baseball pants, solid black helmet, dark green socks, dark green belt as well as glove and bat.
Catchers need to have gear in Norman North colors: black, grey, or dark green.
The season will begin June TBD and end June TBD. Games will generally be double-headers two days a week (Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday).
We are asking that you make a serious commitment to be present at every game if you are going to play for us this summer. If there are conflicts, please communicate those to the coach in charge of your team. Most league games will be double headers. We will get the finalized schedules to you once they are completed and we get closer to summer.
All summer games will be played at Norman North or the away site for the team you are traveling to play. Almost all games will be played locally in the metro area.
We feel summer baseball is all about development. It is imperative that the young men in this program play summer baseball for Norman North to continue to grow and develop as an individual and as teammates. This has to occur for us to continue to compete at such a highly competitive level in 6A. The summer is the best time to teach the game as well as be able to evaluate the players in this program as we get ready for the 2023 season.
