Baseball

Program Overview:

Baseball Pitch

The mission of the Greenwich Cardinals Baseball program is to provide the best possible environment and experience to each and every student athlete, in which they can excel daily in the classroom and on the playing field.  The game of baseball is used as a tool to educate, promote and instill the qualities necessary to succeed in the real world both on and off the field.

We expect all players to conduct themselves appropriately on and off the field.  Remember that you represent yourself, your team and your community at all times.

Baseball fields 3 teams: Varsity, Junior Varsity and a Freshman team.  All students interested in playing must register on the Greenwich High School Athletic website and have physicals completed before tryouts to be permitted to play. 


Time Commitment:

We will have practices and games 6 days a week during the season.  You can expect to have a day off on either Saturday or Sunday.  Most practices will start after school during the week and run for approximately 2 hours.  Games are usually scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting between 4:00pm and 4:30pm.
