***REMINDER - Fall workouts begin on Wednesday, September 9th after school. NO PLAYER WILL BE PERMITTED TO ATTEND UNTIL THEIR ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION PACKET IS ON FILE WITH THE SHS ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. If you have not done so already, please complete the packet through and submit ALL forms related to the Athletic Packet requirement through the website as well.

11-12 GRADERS - Tuesday, September 15th at 4:00p at the Sarasota High Baseball field


REMINDER - Because the Fall baseball program opportunity is completely independent of the SHS Baseball program, there is a cost of $325 per player to pay the necessary expense of insurance, field rental, etc. for those players who make one of the teams. Participation, or lack thereof, in this opportunity does not have any impact on the Spring tryouts for a roster spot on either the JV or Varsity Sarasota High Baseball teams.

SENIOR NIGHT... Wednesday, April 15th, the Sarasota Sailors baseball program was scheduled to “continue the tradition” by celebrating the accomplishments of this year’s Senior class prior to the match up against Braden River. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the game has been canceled… but our desire to celebrate and recognize our Seniors remains strong. The Sailor Baseball coaching staff would like to thank each Senior for the hard work and dedication they brought to our program over the past four years. While we all understand the necessary pause to our season, we are also eager to the time when we can get together (hopefully in the not so distant future) to celebrate these Seniors contributions to the Sailor Baseball program over the past four years.   -Coach Metcalf

Reds escape in 12th on Scooter's walk-off HR 

Source: Report by Mark Sheldon, 

Scooter Gennett already had a home run and a perfectly-executed squeeze bunt on his ledger vs. the Braves on Tuesday. But the Reds' second baseman knew his ninth-inning defensive mistake that led to extra innings would dominate his postgame thoughts if his team lost. (Click Here)

Longstanding baseball tournament helps teams find their groove 

Source: Report by Ryan Kohn,

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Major League Baseball season starts this week, meaning the Baltimore Orioles are no longer in town for all to enjoy. That doesn’t mean there’s no baseball you should be watching, however. Sarasota’s high school scene is in full swing, hitting its midseason apex this week with the Sarasota Baseball Classic. For 33 years, the Classic has brought together both local and out-of-region teams, and that’s no different this year. Sarasota High, Riverview High and Cardinal Mooney High are all playing, as are 11 other teams (Click Here)
