Coach's Corner

FHS Tigers Baseball

Head Coach Matthew Cherry

Tiger Baseball Family:


Welcome to Tiger Baseball!  

Please take time to read through all of the information below.  I apologize for the length, but there is a lot to share as we start the year.  If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask.  We are looking forward to getting started with our off-season workouts.


  1. Athletic Physical – Before an athlete can participate in our off-season workouts, they must have a hard copy IHSAA Athletic Physical on file in the Athletic Office that is dated after April 1, 2022.  Here is the form that must be completed by a physician  If you participated in the FHS Physical Night in April, then you have already completed this paperwork.


  1. Final Forms (Registration for Sports) - FHS Sports Registration must be completed by creating an account through Final Forms at  You will still need to turn in a hard copy of your Physical to the Athletic Office, but this online form must also be completed before an athlete can participate in our off-season workouts.   IMPORTANT:  Parents, please makes sure to “tag” BASEBALL when completing Final Forms.  After Parents complete their part of Final Forms, there is a PLAYER SIGNOFF that the Player must complete to finalize their registration.


  1. Tiger Baseball Calendar – The Tiger Baseball Calendar can be found at this link  This is a tentative 12-Month Calendar that is updated at the beginning of every month.


    1. Weights (Non-APC) – will be every Monday and Wednesday after school starting Wednesday 8/17.  This is Weight Room time for all players NOT enrolled in APC Weights Class during the school day.


    1. Open Field – will be every Tuesday and Thursday after school starting on Tuesday 8/30 on the Varsity Field.  There will also be a few Wednesdays once we start scrimmage (9/21, 9/28, 10/5).


    1. ***Players currently participating in a Fall Sport at school do NOT need to attend Baseball Workouts.  Best wishes to you in your Fall Sport!  We will see you after your Fall Season is complete.


  1. Dugout Club – Parent Booster Club meets at 7pm on the 2nd Monday of every month in the LGI Room.  You should have started to receive emails from Dugout Club.  If you are not receiving Dugout Club emails, then please email to let them know.  At the September meeting, the Dugout Club will elect the Scholarship Chair and individual Class Reps (Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman).  If interested in serving in these roles, then please email the Dugout Club at the address above. 


    1. Dine-to-Donate – Dugout Club’s first Dine-to-Donate will be next Tuesday 8/23 at Texas Roadhouse from 4pm-10pm.  Please use the attached flyer on your dine-in or carry out order and Dugout Club will receive 20% of your food bill.


    1. Golf Outing – Tee Up Fore Tigers Golf Outing is scheduled for Saturday 9/24 at River Glen with a Shotgun Start at 2:30pm.  WE NEED GOLFERS!  You can register to Golf and/or Sponsor the event through the Golf Outing Website  A hard copy of the Golf Outing Registration and Sponsorship Forms are attached for you to use to spread the word with family, friends, colleagues, and businesses.  Similar to the last year, securing a sponsorship will go directly to offset your Dugout Club Dues, so we highly encourage you to look for sponsorships.


I believe this is all for now.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Off-season workouts are about to begin!  Looking forward to the preparation for the 2023 Seasons!
