Titan Baseball Families,
It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the end of our 2017 season and now I am writing you regarding the upcoming 2018 season. Time flies when you’re having fun I guess! As I started to plan out the new Titan Baseball Season, I began to think about the former players that I have been so blessed to coach these past 5 years and what they have meant to this program. It has been a true honor to coach each and every one of these past 5 teams, each one having their own identity, and each one helping build this program into what it is today. Our program, thanks to many great players, has been to the playoffs 4 out of 5 years, making it to the State Semifinals last season. Our team’s success has seen 17 players from the past 5 years go on to play collegiately at Utah, Paradise Valley CC, Mesa CC, Cornell, Scottsdale CC, Cal Poly San Louis Obispo, LSU, Arizona Christian, Shepherd University, Phoenix College, and Gateway CC, just to name a few! We have had a 7th round draft pick, who is currently playing in the Texas Rangers organization, and we have had 3 consecutive Region Player of the Year awards. We currently host a nationally recognized tournament, The Boras Classic, which ESPN televises the championship game from our field! We have also been recognized as having the 2017 Rocky Mountain Region Field of the Year! This award also puts us in the running for National Field of the Year, which will be decided in December! It has been an honor to be the Head Baseball Coach at Arcadia and we will continue to strive for excellence on and off the field.

However, we are not satisfied! Making it to the state semifinals is great, but we want that ultimate prize, State Champions! In order for that to happen the program needs to continue to grow. I have plans to improve the view from the stands by removing the chain link fencing, and poles, and installing netting that will allow for a better view of the game. We also will continue maintaining and improving the field, which has been recognized regionally and hopefully nationally, but all this takes money! We need your help! There is only so much money to go around from the school and most of what we have is from donations already. We are making financial commitments to upgrade our facilities and now need help to fund these improvements. If we want this program to reach its fullest potential our facility must continue to improve! Please consider getting involved with the Booster Club and help us reach our goals! Please contact Booster President Tim Bolden email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
Here's to a GREAT upcoming season!
Yours in Baseball,
Head Baseball Coach

Hello Titans fans! Don't miss the exciting action tonight as Arcadia hosts North Canyon at 6:30. The AIA website had this cool article about your Titans:
MARCH 27, 2017 BY LES WILLSEY, AZPREPS365
Arcadia's baseball team dug deep to extend its winning streak on Monday. The Titans found a way with guys not generally hitting or pitching standouts paving the way.
After falling behind 5-0 after two innings, Arcadia did most of its damage in the sixth and seventh to post a 9-6 win over Campo Verde in a 5A contest at windy Campo Verde High.
Arcadia improved to 10-6 overall and 7-0 in power-ranking games. A big chunk of that power-ranking success has come in the victory streak that reached seven with Monday's four-run rally in the seventh inning. Campo Verde is 9-7 overall and 4-2 in power-ranking games.
Arcadia's unlikely heroes were the No. 8 and No 9 hitters in its lineup -- Jack Walshiire and Jackson Westhoff, respectively. They combined for five hits and six RBI and hit their first home runs of the season. On the mound it was junior Max Reidy.
Walshire doubled his hit total for the season to four with a solo homer to left in the fourth and a tie-breaking RBI single in the seventh. Westhoff had three hits. The big ones were a two-run homer to right in the sixth that pulled Arcadia within 6-5. Westhoff's two-run triple in the seventh put the cap on the game-winning rally and gave the Titans breathing room to finish. Connor Denning notched a save after escaping a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the seventh.
Walshire, who was the DH until the he came on to face two batters, got the win by getting the final out of the sixth with a strikeout.
Picking up the pitching staff was Reidy. Reidy had appeared in four games this season and worked a total of 3 2/3 innings before Monday. He relieved taking starter Ryan Bolden in the third and allowed just one run in 3 2/3 nnings of work.
Arcadia's hot streak began with wins in its final two games of the Boras Classic it co-hosted with Corona del Sol the second week of March. The Titans have added five power-ranking wins to that. They have a tough week remaiining with three more games this week -- Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The same goes for Campo Verde, which has games Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Three-game weeks are a little more common come late March. Four-game weeks are best avoided. Campo Verde used six pitchers -- none throwing more than two innings. The Coyotes had four players with two hits apiece -- Jarrett Wolfe, Brayden Campbell , Garret Thornton and Justin Springborn. Thornton had a first-inning home run and two RBI.
Come out and enjoy all the action.
