There will NOT be any player evaluations conducted this year.

All player requests to play with other players/coaches will be honored as best as possible in order to allow for fun and balanced play on the baseball field.
Please be on the lookout for future coach meeting dates that will start on March 6th and conclude on March 14th. The division directors will reach out with further details.

Note: If a player uses an illegal bat during play, a dead ball will be called and the batter will be called out. If after a play is completed, the bat is found to be illegal, the batter is out and the base runners will return to where they previously were. The opposing team would have until the next pitch is thrown to make a claim of an illegal bat.
Thank you to all of the men, women and children of our great neighborhood who make this program a reality. Let's show the city why we are #1!
COACHES: PLEASE BE SURE TO GIVE WAY TO ANY AND ALL MAINTENANCE CREWS ON FIELDS WHEN REQUESTED-THANK YOU!
