Sunset HS Spring Baseball

One thing that was never clear to me is if we (as family) could plan on a Spring Vacation or if all teams will be involved in Spring Break Tournaments.

A: The varsity team will always play some games during the week of Spring Break Vacation. In addition, in alternating years, the Varsity Team has traveled to Arizona for games during Spring Break. The JV & Freshmen Teams are not scheduled to play games during week of Spring Break Vacation. However, it is possible "optional" baseball practice / work out activities may be scheduled for those available / in the area during the week of spring break.

I was also never sure how the "try out" process was done.

A: Baseball is cut sport for Sunset High School. The tryout process is managed by the Sunset HS Baseball coaches and is used to evaluate the baseball skills and potential of all players. Following the try out process, the coaches will determine the number and placement of players on the Freshmen, JV and Varsity Teams. The length of the try out process is usually completed within 4 - 7 days from the initial practice date, try outs will be held each day, rain or shine. If needed, the try out process may extend to Saturday if needed.

Who is the contact person/email for each team when we have questions, concerns, etc.

A: If you have questions, these should be directed to the Head Coach of your son's team. If they cannot answer your question, they will direct you to the appropriate contact. Once teams are formed, coaches contact information will be posted on the SABC website.

Where can game schedules be found for all Sunset Spring Baseball Teams?

A: All Sunset Team schedules can be found on the Metro League website.

Where can players go to get additional instruction or work on skills?
