WHAT IS BEAUMONT BASEBALL?
Beaumont Baseball (formerly Amelia-West End Baseball) is a Little-League-sanctioned baseball league comprised of players within both, the Amelia Little League and West End Little League boundaries (some exceptions may apply), for ages 13-18 (some 12's depending on birth date). The league was formed many years ago when it was determined that neither Amelia nor West End could practically support a league for these age groups separately due to low numbers of registrants. While Little League allows these two leagues to combine players for regular season play when teams are formed, it does not allow players to be combined on tournament teams. Consequently, those players selected for tournament play must play on either the Amelia or West End tournament team depending are where they live.

Thanks to Brian Cansler and Billy Robbins, we now have new benches in each dugout and a warning track that runs around the entire field.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WEST END JUNIOR LEAGUE TEAM
August 11, 2015
While we are all disappointed that our West End team didn't make it to the Junior League World Series, we are so proud of their efforts and accomplishments such as:
* Winning 12 straight tournament games and going 4 games into the Regional tournament
* Winning District, Sectionals and Texas East State
* Going further in post-season competition than any other Beaumont Baseball Junior League team
* Going further than any other area Junior League team
So guys, hold your heads high and be very proud of what you did! We know you never gave up and fought to the last out. Be proud to tell others that you were a part of the 2015 Beaumont Baseball West End Junior League team that went as far as you did.
Much thanks also to Manager Brian Cansler and Assistant Coaches Billy Conner and Kenny Sterling. You gave you time and effort to help these guys prepare for the run they had; they couldn't have done it without you.
Thanks also to all the players' parents and any others who helped this team go to Tyler and Rio Rancho. You sacrificed your time and money and for that we are grateful.

EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT COMPLETED
February 26, 2015
Pictured from left: Patrick Cates, Daniel Cates, Robert Canizales, Eric Canizales, Dennis Canizales, Joe Way, Brandon Cates, Akshay Sutrave, and Brandon Storey
Congratulations to Eric Canizales on being awarded his Eagle Scout rank in October, 2014. Eric is part of Troop 194 from St. Jude Catholic Church and played baseball at Beaumont Baseball. Early last year Eric asked if there was something he could do to improve our facility as part of the requirements toward his Eagle Scout rank. We agreed that he could replace some of the concession stand windows, both restroom doors and the stairwell door. We asked that the three old wood doors be replaced with metal-clad doors and all the door frames be replaced with metal frames. Obviously this was a very expensive project since the metal doors and frames cost more than $1000. All this work did not cost Beaumont Baseball one penny thanks to the hard work and dedication of Eric and other scouts and friends who helped him. Thanks to Eric and all those young men in the picture above for volunteering their time to take on a project of this magnitude. And thanks also to Eric's Dad and Mr. Cates for providing the oversight on this project to ensure the work was done properly. Thanks to all for a job well done! If you see Eric or any of the others in the picture please extend a big THANK YOU to them.
