Coaches and Parents: BBSC is looking for candidates interested in applying for the head coaching position for the 2019 BBSC 9U Baseball Select travel team. Tryouts for the team will take place later this summer. The team is open only to those players born between May 1 2009 and April 30, 2010. It is a full-time travel team and costs for playing on the team are considerably more than fees for recreation players. The head coach for the 9U BBSC travel team is expected to stay with the team as head coach through the 14U season. If you are interested in applying for this position, please respond to this email or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All candidates will be interviewed by the BBSC Travel Committee.
2017 BBSC Chuck Slaughter Community Service Award Recipients
by posted 05/30/2018
Current and former Broadneck High School baseball coaches are the recipients of the 2017 Chuck Slaughter Community Service Award. These coaches have over the past several years developed a close working relationship with BBSC and its players—holding coaching clinics for BBSC coaches and skills clinics for BBSC players. They have attended BBSC games and practices at the pre-high school age groups to discuss coaching and teaching concepts with players and coaches and their BHS baseball camps have been attended by scores of BBSC players. They also provide an important service to the community in keeping high school students involved in organized sports.
Specifically, the awards were presented as follows, at a BBSC Coaches meeting early this year, where BHS coaches were speaking to our BBSC coaches:
To Jeff Herrick, former head coach of the Broadneck High School varsity baseball team, and Neal Herrick, assistant Broadneck High School baseball coach, for their commitment to developing Broadneck High School athletes and forging a unique working relationship with BBSC.
To Broadneck High School Head Coach Matt Skrenchuk and his varsity and junior varsity assistants for reaching out to young athletes on the Broadneck Peninsula through clinics and training sessions with BBSC coaches and players.
To Richard Coughlin, for his unmatched dedication to youth baseball on the Broadneck Peninsula, as a recreation coach, a travel coach, one of the founders of the BBSC travel program and now as a baseball coach for Broadneck High School.
The Chuck Slaughter Community Service Award each year honors those who have been leaders in Broadneck area youth sports and particularly in creating a healthy environment and enjoyable experience for BBSC players and families. The award is named after Chuck Slaughter, who prior to his untimely death was one of the biggest supporters and best friends of the BBSC Community.
Congratulations to Jeff Herrick, Neal Herrick, Rich Coughlin and Matt Skrenchuk and his assistant JV and Varsity coaches at Broadneck High School.

The Broadneck High School coaches will once again be holding the Bruins baseball camp in June for those who will be in grades 2 through 9 this coming fall (meaning in grades 1 through 8 right now but going up a grade in September).
This year's camp will be held from June 18-22nd (MORNING CAMP). Coach Matt Skrenchuk & Staff will introduce fundamentals pertaining to warm-ups, fielding, hitting, running and throwing. Each day will end with team concepts and games. Good Sportsmanship will be emphasized each and every day. Campers of all skill levels will have the opportunity to improve their game.
