2022 SPRING BASEBALL REGISTRATIONS WILL BEGIN ON NOVEMBER 1!
- Our 35th Anniversary Spring season is fast approaching, please sign up early and secure a roster spot!
We'll be back on the fields in early January, for evaluations, and we expect a full season of baseball for spring.
MANAGERS - Please register early to allow as many players as possible on the fields! For more information email us at: email@example.com
FALLBALL HAS BEGUN!
- We just want to say it's been great to see everyone return to the fields! Even with all of the distractions we’ve had, we are fielding 24 teams and nearly 300 baseball players!
Thank you to our managers, coaches and volunteers, as well as our parents, for your determination and flexibility to assure our kids returned to play our great game of baseball. We would also like to say a special THANK YOU to Angela Barron for looking after us with the ever-changing county guidelines, as well as the festive decorations for our Opening Day!
Also, we’ll throw in a reminder for Spring 2022.. We are constantly on the lookout for team managers. Spring registrations begin in November and we can only grow with participation from our parents. Please register early and let us know if you can take a team for us! We are hoping a return to our annual 650+ kids for spring - And we need managers to make that happen! - We also need volunteers to help run our league. Please speak with one of our directors, if interested.
FALLBALL NOTES -
We are all part of a team, at WPB, and we would like to send a friendly reminder that we could use your help, on Saturdays, to allow our baseball program to run even smoother. - Please read below:
• All bats must have the USABat stamp, with the exception of wood bats. Older bats & USSSA bats without the stamp are illegal in PONY Baseball. This is a liability issue and the player & manager could be ejected. During spring play, for every division, the penalty is: The manager and the player will be removed from the game, as well as the next scheduled game and cannot be replaced. PONY Rule: 18.E.(7)
• Coaches have already stepped forward as volunteers for the kids. They could use some help from parents when it comes to field set ups. Please volunteer to assist coaches when you see them setting up or putting things away.
• We are responsible for our trash at the fields and around the bleachers. If you don’t pick up your trash, we have to clean after you. Also, sunflower seeds are not allowed at the fields. If you bring them, please collect your shells in a container. Cleaning up someone else’s seeds is not something we volunteered for – especially with the health issues going around. Seeds also end up on the field, for the kids to play on.
• Please DO NOT bring your dogs to the fields. Pets are fun, but they are not allowed at our York Field Complex. This is a city ordinance and you can be ticketed, if your dog is not a permitted service animal. Please pass this on to any family and friends attending games.
WPB Merchandise –
• Our hoodies & t-shirts will be available on most Saturdays.
Thank you for your support!
