F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Below you may find a list of frequently asked questions from our families to our organization.  You may also find our Silver Slugger Player Manual a valuable resource to learn more about our organization.

1. General Frequently Asked Questions

Question: “We placed an order for some Silver Slugger swag that I’m hoping to give to my son for the holidays. Is there anyway I can get this from you directly instead of having you send it home with him?”

Answer: Yes, we will make sure that when the swag comes in, you can pick it up yourself. Please contact Brad Woodall at Brad@woodallbaseball.com.


Question: “My son/daughter cannot make practice due to a conflict with another sport/family event/etc, can he/she be late or practice with another team?”

Answer:  If your player will miss practice due to another in season sport or family conflict, then your player may attend another practice or show up late for their team practice. Please give Brad Woodall notification at Brad@woodallbaseball.com, so I are aware and expecting your player. 


Question: “Am I allowed to ask questions to the coach during team practices?”

Answer: No. Unfortunately, due to the number of players within the Silver Sluggers organization our staff must be organized and focused on the players. Answering questions or concerns during practice creates distractions, causes safety issues. However, after practice would be a great time to ask any questions or express any concerns.


Question: “I need to talk to my player during practice or a game, how should I approach this?”

Answer: Unless it is a medical or another immediate emergency, please refrain from communicating with your player. If you must speak with your player, then please get the permission of the Head Coach or Head Instructor to do so.


Question: “During practices at the UW Health Facility, where am I allowed to sit?”
