Fairmont High School Fairmont Minnesota























To assist program members in the development of

character, responsibility, and integrity

Make sure we all have FUN! We all need to be enjoying what we are doing!

Players can talk the coach about playing time--- NOT PARENTS

We will not transfer blame! This is not acceptable behavior!

Win as a team and lose as a team!

We are not an ENTITLEMENT program, everyone has a chance to move or down.

It is not how many hours you practice, but rather how much you put into those hours!!

Ever player has a ROLE on the team.

We need the GLADIATOR mentality--- if we play together as a TEAM we have a much better chance to win!!  Be Team Players

Honesty & Trust----- Between players and coaches

If it doesn't get done in the classroom, it probably won't get done on the field!

We have to have a positive attitude and give a constant effort to be successful.


If a player is disrespectful towards any coach or umpire they

will be disciplined at the digression of the coaching staff and athletic director!

Unexcused absences will not be tolerated! We are committed to you

so you should be committed to us and your teammates!!

No player does or says anything derogatory

towards the other team or their fans!



Show Class!


Offensive Philosophy: 

1) Pressure the defense, be aggressive

2) Force the defense to field the ball

3) Bunting makes a difference

4)Score in the first inning


Defensive Philosophy:

1) 1 error or less a game

2) 3 walks or less

3) 60% first pitch strikes

4) 5th thru 7th inning get first batter out

5) 1st inning shut out.


Three things make up a persons abilities--

His knowledge, His skill and his attitude. 

ATTITUDE can make up for the lack of the other two!!!!!!
