Winter Baseball Clinics

 

The winter weather has arrived outside but the kids may still want to play some baseball. 

The coach for the Waltham High School baseball team Steve Laforest has organized a pitching and catching clinic.  The clinic will be on Sunday nights starting in January and will run into March for players aged 8-12 at Kennedy Middle school field house.  Please check out the brochure for more details.

The senior banquet will be Thursday September 12 2013 at the French Club. The festivities will start at 7pm. The doors will be open at 6pm. Please contact all your players and have them arrive by 6:45.

 

Kudos to the Senior Cards for a job well-done. Congratulations, fellas!

BOTH TEAMS: Enter your team’s statsinto the league website

 

Stat and Score Administration

The website has an administration link on bottom left sidebar of the website:

 

1. Click the administration link.  It will ask for your username and password.  Please pay attention to any capitals and spaces.  They must be typed in exactly as emailed to you. 

2. Click on bottom left Game Results (Stats)

General Reminders / Instructions

·       Helmets must have facemasks and must be worn at all times on the base paths.

·       The pitching machine is mandatory for innings 4-6.

·       Kids pitch innings 1-3.

·       A pitcher can throw 2 innings max per game.

·       A kid who pitches, can’t catch in the same game.

·       Use your best judgment with games that drag on. If you hit 7:30pm, you need to wrap up the current inning and end the game.

·       Regarding weather, the expectation is we play unless there is lightning or the field is unplayable.

·       Call Bill if you think the weather or field makes for unplayable conditions at 617-594-2188. There is also usually at least one board member at the field every night. Just be safe and smart.

 

Working with the Umps

·       Please introduce yourselves before the game, and support them.

·       “Coach” the umps about being loud and moving around the infield to make calls. They don’t have to stay behind the pitcher. If they make a mistake, take it in stride and quietly discuss the call with them in between innings.

·       Umps should sign in on the shack desk calendar and return the clicker at the end of the game.

o    Bill has asked them for notice if they cannot make an assigned game so he can fill their spot. Call him at 617-594-2188 if you have a no-show.

o    The ump should also give each team a game ball at the end. (Game balls are given out to deserving players at the coaches’ discretion.)

·      

In the event you don’t have an ump for your game, please have a coach or parent volunteer act as ump.
There are clickers in the shacks.
