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.

A big THANK YOU to all the players, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors and fans who supported our Junior League in 2016. We could not have done it without your help. A special thanks to Brian Cansler, our league Administrator, and Billy Robbins, Field Maintenance Supervisor, for all their dedicated work in operating the league and keeping the facilities in tip-top shape. A special thanks also to Harold and Laura Michael for their hard work in running the concession stand even when they didn't have parent volunteers to help.
We look forward to doing it again in 2017. It's not too early to volunteer for a board position. Just contact a current board member to volunteer for 2017. The more help we have the easier it is on all of us.
Thanks again for a great 2016 season.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WEST END JUNIOR LEAGUE TEAM

* 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.
