Thanks so much to all the players and parents who helped us prepare the Beechwood fields for the Fall. Thanks also to John Cavannaro from BARA for his help us well. It's quite impressive how we were able to reclaim much of the infleld.
If you have driven by Barnes field this week you may have noticed trucks and workers on the field. We are doing some renovations to the infield areas on Chase and Barnes and laying sod in certain areas at Barnes.
The work should be done next week but the fields will need to remain closed through Labor Day weekend. Please tell your players to use Freedom field if they want to play or practice these last few weeks of summer.
The fields will be in great shape by the time we start Fall Ball games on September 13th.
Registration for Fall Baseball is now open via Sports Pilot. The season kicks off the weekend after Labor Day with games beginning Sunday, September 13th. The leagues are open to all players born before December 31st, 2010 (i.e., will be 5 years old by December 31st 2015). We expect the leagues will be grouped for 5/6 year olds, 7/8 year olds, 9/10/11 year olds and 12/13/14 year olds. We need to understand registration numbers before we can provide a schedule, and for that reason appreciate timely registration.
Games are Sundays only starting in the approximate time slot of 11:30am or 12:00pm and finishing by 6pm. (12/13/14 year olds may have a slightly different schedule cut to playing potential games against other towns). After August 20th, a late fee of $40 will be added. With a late registration, we can't guarantee a spot on a team. Registering on time is greatly appreciated. For more details on the schedule and to register please go to the CYBSA website at http://www.cybsa.net/

Selections for the Summer Baseball teams have been completed. A combination of tryout performance and coaches evaluation were used to select the teams. We are very excited for a fun and competitive Summer Baseball season.
Unlike our Spring and Fall programs, there is a stronger emphasis on assembling the most competitive team at each age range - as we build towards a competitive Williamsport Team.
A few notes:
- Williamsport Tournament Rules restrict us from announcing the team until June 15 - at which time we will work to determine if we can assemble a 11-12 team for anyone players not selected to the team as well as any 11 yr olds not selected
- We have an A and B team for our 11 yr old age group
- Given those who tried out and are interested in playing baseball this summer, we did not have enough players to field a B team for both the 9 and 10 yr old age range - we have selected a combined to play in the South River League
As with any selection process, there may be players and families unhappy with the decisions. We continue to strive to improve our selection process, but also are committed to our goal of building towards a competitive Williamsport Team.
If you have questions or concerns, please use the contact page.
