In honor of baseball season starting, it’s time for a little flashback to the 2o14 Westlake Baseball program. While designing this 100+ page booklet was quite the feat, it was all worth it after seeing how happy the players and parents were to have this keepsake.
Westlake High School is located in Westlake Village, CA just north of Los Angeles. Westlake Warrior Baseball is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “promote, develop, encourage, and guide” student athletes through High School athletics.
My boyfriend’s aunt was my connection to this project. It was her son’s (his cousin’s) senior year and final baseball season. Her and a group of other parents were rockstars in helping me with this project. From gathering photos to proofreading to organizing printing, I couldn’t have done it without them!
The cover featured who else but the seniors! The initial pages showcased the coaching staff, letters from the administration, and other information about the program.
Each player from Varsity to Freshman had one page dedicated to them. These pages included player headshots, action shots and stats about the player such as “What’s your favorite food?”
All the seniors got a double page spread because duh it’s their year. The spread below features my boyfriend’s cousin.
All the player’s pages were separated into sections by Varsity, JV, and Freshman teams. Each of these sections had a cover spread that included the schedule, team roster, and of course more action shots!
After 100+ pages of blood, sweat, and tears (not really haha!), we make it to the final cover… All I can say is “Boys will be boys.” 😉
