Jack went to the first day of the try-outs for the Jesuit JV baseball team. He said that there were 27 boys. There are at least two boys still playing basketball and wrestling (Alex and Christian). While the varsity coach said that each team would be 17 to 18 boys at a minimum, the JV team only carried 16 boys last season.
Try-outs started a week later than last year. As a result, I don't expect that the final cuts will be made until Monday, February 25 after the double header scrimmage at Bella Vista. Last year, the final cuts were made on February 18.
[footnote: Rod said that the coach told the boys last night that the JV roster would be 16 boys. I confirmed this with Jack…]
