Tuggeranong Vikings Baseball New Senior Playing Tops for 2015/16 Season

For those players who have not received an email. We have decided to purchase new playing tops for our seniors this Season (2015/16) with the hope to purchase new ones for our juniors in the 2016/17 season. Due to the costs involved we are not in a financial position to replace all of the playing tops in one season.

We would like to give you (senior and/or juniors playing seniors only) the opportunity to purchase your playing top outright with the hope of still retaining your number, if you have one. The cost will be $50.00 per top however if you purchased your top within the last two seasons we are happy to do a swap.

If you wish to purchase your playing top, could you please email Kylie at seidel2818@gmail.com your size and playing number by 10 August 2015.
After this time, players who currently own their top will then forfeit the right to their current playing number; we will then be unable to guarantee the playing tops that we order will be available in your size with your current playing number.

Any questions feel free to contact me.
