What does a ETSB Roster look like?

August 24, 2012
What is a typical roster like for a ETSB team? Starting in the Spring of 2013 a typical ETSB roster will consist of three players to switch out at 1st and 3rd, three middle infieders (SS,2B),4 Outfielders and 2 catchers.Each team will usually have a couple of kids who can be a part of the team as a "Pitcher only" player and the rest of the pitching will come from the position players. Our Fall teams sometimes reflect a "different" makeup. A Fall roster may be somewhat larger to allow for kids who play football and have other functions that may not allow them to be available every weekend. Our goal is to have each kid play a part of every game except for one of the catchers. Catchers catch a whole game then sit out a game. Should a player not play in one game then he will start and play the entire next ballgame. Our program is a "Developmental one" in that we (coaches)teach all the time. Goal number one is to play and learn the game correctly and that will always be more important than winning. If we develope players, we will win games. The two go hand in hand.
