The Trinity-Pawling baseball coaching staff is committed to providing each student-athlete with the opportunity to reach his individual goals as a player. For some, it’s improving his skills, increasing playing time, or competing at the varsity level. For others, it’s collegiate-level competition. Our priority is the development of great character — developing each player as a strong and independent person, a well-rounded student, and a contributing citizen. We believe that growth of the complete student-athlete takes place through seizing opportunities and overcoming challenges. We guide all of our players towards growth — through engagement in the classroom, development of relationships, taking healthy risks, broadening their interests, and getting involved in the community. Regular meetings with advisors and coaches are designed to ensure that each player in the baseball program is taking advantage of these opportunities for growth.
The Trinity-Pawling baseball program plays in the competitive New England Founders League with top prep programs across the area. The Pride has established a winning tradition at Trinity-Pawling and continues to grow with each season.

Spring 2021 • founders league Update
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and after many discussions prioritizing community health, safety, and well-being, the Founders League has unanimously, and with great regret, decided to cancel all Founders League interscholastic competition for the 2021 spring season.*
* While there will be no official Founders League interscholastic competition for the spring season, this does not preclude Trinity-Pawling from pursuing some form of interscholastic competition in ways that are consistent with our COVID-19 protocols.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Athletic Director Brian Foster ’79 at email@example.com. Thank you for your continued support and patience.
Trinity-Pawling varsity baseball players begin each season with an annual spring training trip to the Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie area of Florida. The outstanding Florida Coast Spring Training Organization hosts the trip, while our training typically features 5-6 full game scrimmages against top Northeast and Canadian opponents, 6-8 full practice sessions, and numerous additional hitting or pitching specific sessions. Spring training is a critical component of Trinity-Pawling’s baseball pre-season preparation. Upon return from Florida, the Pride typically takes on a few local scrimmages before entering the regular season.
We believe that it is critical for each player to utilize his off-season time to improve himself as an athlete. This includes competing in a second or third sport, participating in our Strength and Conditioning Program, or training in groups or individualized sessions throughout the year. The Strength and Conditioning Program is designed for improving athletic performance and health through a focus on dynamic movement, power, and mobility. The Smith Field House is equipped with multi-purpose flooring, a full-length batting tunnel, bullpen facilities, and training equipment, which provides players with ample space and facilities for year-round development on an individual, group, or team basis.
