Managers for AAA & Above:

Please sure you are adhering to pitch count and rest requirements. You should be counting pitches not just for your pitchers, but also for your opponents and validating them with the opposing coach each half inning. Also, YOU MUST adhere to the pitcher to catcher rule. If a pitcher delivers 41 pitches or more in a game, they may not play catcher for the remainder of the day. See the handouts tab to download a copy of the pitch count and rest requirements and associated rules. Thanks for your cooperation.

Help Keep Our Complex Clean and Please Be Courteous
Please be sure at the end of each game, dugouts are cleaned of all trash and drink bottles.  Also be sure you have all of your team's equipment.  If you play at 6pm, please be courteous and clean and vacate the dugout areas as quickly as possible.

that serves the children of Northwest Philadelphia (the 21st Ward).
  We have no paid employees, and can provide sports activities to resident children only through volunteer efforts and participation. Fees are designed to cover the cost of the baseball and softball programs that we offer.
