With a growing number of games being rained out, the plans for the remainder of the season are changing. As of this week we have had more then 100 games rained out. We are working to get each team to their 10 guaranteed-regular season games. However, please understand this may not be possible for every team. Any additional rainouts beginning next Monday the 22nd, will NOT be rescheduled.
All age groups will now play their end of season tournament on Saturday,November 10th. This only changes the date of the tournament for the 6U and 8U groups, as the intercity tournaments were already scheduled on this date. Some age groups may need to start bracket play on Friday evening to make room for all games.
Saturday, October 27th and Saturday, November 3rd will now be utilized as make up days, along with additional week night games, as needed. Make Up games scheduled to be played this Saturday will be moved to Saturday the 27th. Updated schedules will be posted as soon as they are available.
Please use the sign up genius to schedule team pictures. A printable order form is also attached.

5. Team Jersey
Blastball is an excellent introduction to T-Ball and baseball for young boys and girls, known for the base that makes a distinctive "HONK!" when kids jump on it. The game is fast-paced and full of action, perfect for the shorter attention span of youngsters.
Blastball is very safe because players use a foam bat and ball. It teaches fundamentals such as hitting, throwing, and fielding while emphasizing the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.
