|WELCOME TO FMS BASEBALL|
1>Excel in effort. Give your best, 100% effort-always!
2> Hustle. On a baseball field, walking is discouraged. We hustle and run at all times! Hustle does not require talent, it requires simple commintment and desire. A team that hustles is a team that has spirit, and one that plays with discipline and enthusiasm.
3>Develop loyalty. Put the FMS Baseball Team first. Be a team player. Help your team members achieve team goals.
4>Be on TIME. When in doubt, be early. Practice/workout times are critical, be dressed, loose and ready to start!
5>Think Baseball. Concentrate. Whether in a game or at practice, keep your mind focused. Anticipate each pitch and fielding situation. Players are never spectators-when you are the field, be prepared on every play--Know you assignments. Develop a respect for the game and it's traditions.
6>Master the fundamentals. Learn the skills. To become a skilled player on game day, start by being a good practice player. If you don't pick up a bat or glove except to come to a game or practice, you will NOT get any better at baseball!!
7>Make every mistake a part of your development. Learn from adversity. Mistakes are common in baseball. Errors are part of the game. What sets winning teams apart from others is atttitude. When a mistake is made, get over it, and make a commitment to learn from the experience.
8>Value Sportsmanship. Be a good sport. Show respect for opponents, officials and fans. Most of all, demonstrate class on and off the field. "Don't embarass your Momma!"
9> Last and certainly NOT least>Don't let grades keep all the work and practice in the bleachers. Pass and Play!!
