Fallball sign ups have begun!
We are looking for managers, for information, please contact Glenn Costello at: email@example.com
- We would like to let everyone know that our Fall registrations have begun. We offer 5 divisions from Shetland through Pony. Fallball games are played on Saturdays only, at York Field, beginning in mid-September through November.
Online registration is now open 24/7.
Fallball is a time for our players to work on their skills – and to get ready for a larger field for next spring. Games for Pinto and above are umpired, but we do not keep score, standings or supply uniforms. This is a time for teams to be creative and pick their own team names! Space is limited, while we wait for managers to step to manage for us. If you can manage a team, please let me know. Register as a volunteer/manager. This allows me to keep registrations open and to get as many kids on the field as we can. If your player ends up on the waiting list, please be patient as I will release players as we find managers.

2019 WPB CONCLUSION OF EVENTS!
- For 2019, we have had another great turn out of players - 630! We had a few rainy days, including our scheduled Opening Day, but we managed to get all our games in. Thank you to everyone for your understanding and flexibility with our reschedules.
We also took a giant leap into the future with GameChanger scoring. We can’t thank our scorekeepers enough! We had a wonderful group of people step up and help us with this challenge. Kudos to our volunteers! When we include 3-4 coaches per team, 1-3 Team Parents and 2-3 Scorekeepers – plus, 10 Board Directors, 5 of whom no longer have players in our league, we truly do have a dedicated group of volunteers! This is an incredible accomplishment every year! These volunteer numbers push us to well over 400 this season - AND, I will say, parent participation like this is what separates us from other leagues. We also want to thank all of our Team Sponsors for their kindness! A list of sponsors will be posted soon.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
One last thing... This season we added "LIVE STREAMING AT YORK FIELD!" We hope everyone got to see their players play. We heard many positive stories of families watching games from far away places. This was a great feature this season! We'll always attempt to deliver the best baseball experience possible.
2019 WPB In-House Season ending Tournament and Closing Ceremonies info below:
On Saturday, we had the conclusion of our Mustang & Bronco Championships! We heard great reports, from all divisions, that we had many competitive tournament games and there were more than a few one run games. Some Shetland teams played extra innings to break ties- Some teams played for 2-1/2 hrs!
Our Pony Division had two dramatic one run games on Saturday. We saw some great pitching, defense, hitting & coaching. We were all very impressed with our future high school players.
It was also great to see all of our competitors play in front of the largest *crowds of the season! Thank you to everyone who invited their extended family & friends to witness the excitement! We watched our players play hard and stay focused on their games. - Every year we see the excitement of playoff pressure get to parents & coaches, much before players feel it. Again, we were proud of our players and coaches by the way they competed and by their conduct. We love your support, but please keep all youth games in perspective. This is the time for our players to experience the great game of baseball and create memories of a lifetime. We want these memories to be positive ones!
*With more baseball spectators expected, at York Field, please arrive early. Reminder: No parking on Santa Fe Springs Rd – South of the Railroad Tracks. It is marked, “No Parking Anytime,” a ticket may be a result. If you park across the street, please use the cross walk at Santa Fe Springs Rd. & Slauson.
THANK YOU TO OUR 2019 WPB SPONSORS -
