  • Communicate Practice / Game / Tournament Schedule
  • Recruit a field prep volunteer.  This person is responsible for preparing the field for all home games.
  • Recruit a team manager.  This person helps the coach out with administrative duties such as team communication.

7.  Base box keys will open base boxes at Cardinal Woods and Moor Park.  Prospect Park and the HS have lock boxes that have the Prospect base box and the HS dugout keys.  Contact the CRFA Equipment manager for keys or lock box codes.

8.  Make sure bases and any extra pitching plates are locked up in the base boxes after all practices.  Leave home plate and 1st base on the field.

9.  Base boxes have bases, and all the tools necessary for game field preparation except a chalker, rake and chalk.  See below for field preparation directions.

10.  A chalker, rake and chalk are stored in the big maroon construction box at Moor Park.  Your base box key will unlock the box.  In the event you have a game at Prospect Park or Cardinal Woods Park make arrangements with Mark Bauck to get a rake, chalker and chalk at least a week in advance.
