• Farragut Baseball, Inc. would like to let all prospective travel league coaches for Spring 2007 know that the process for approving travel teams and their coaches has been revamped. Beginning with the Spring 2007 season, a screening committee will review all travel coaching applications. Ultimately, the league board will approve all travel league applicants before those coaches are admitted into the league. This was supposed to be the case in past years but has not occurred. With this step, the league is rededicating itself to its own set of procedures while updating the application process. Applications will be available at Pak Mail, 11803 Kingston Pike, by mid-November. You may also download travel applications via the Web site at eteamz.com/fbi. Completed applications must be returned to the league by Dec. 31. The committee will review the applications in January and may meet individually with selected coaches. For more information, call Jeff Gary, league president, at 865-556-5013 or by email at farragutbaseballinc@yahoo.com.
