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.

***REMINDER***NEED UMPIRE HELP
January 28, 2015
For those of you who don't know, we need two umpires for each of our junior and senior league games. The rules for these games are pretty much like high school baseball - 90' bases, 60'6" pitching, players can lead off and steal bases to name a few, hence the need for two umpires. If you are interested in umpiring please email Paul Kramlick with your contact information; he will schedule training session(s) sometime in the near future. If you have questions, contact Paul at 283-4241 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please consider helping out.

TEXAS EAST STATE TOURNAMENT - TYLER
July 22, 2014
7/20/14 - Well, the string ran out today as West End lost to Yoakum, ending their Texas East State run. The guys had a great post-season effort, winning District 12 and Section 2 tournaments. They all have reason to hold their heads high. CONGRATULATIONS PLAYERS AND COACHES, you represented our small local league wonderfully. Thank you to Brian Cansler, Billy Conner and Todd Legendre for your time and effort in leading these players to give it their best.
Our West End junior league team lost to Lufkin yesterday and will now play Yoakum at 5 PM today. This is a must-win game for West End in order to continue in the tournament. Let's get behind our team, if only in spirit, and cheer them on to a victory today. GO WEST END!

*** UPDATE ***JUNIOR LEAGUE SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT
July 13, 2014
7/13/14 - Once again weather interfered with the tournament. The championship game scheduled for Saturday, 7/12, was rained-out and rescheduled for Sunday, 7/13 at 1 PM in Bridge City. Unfortunately West End came up short in this game, losing to Barbers Hill 5-4 but it wasn't over yet for us since Barbers Hill must beat West End twice to claim the section title. The second game started and, you guessed it, rain! The game was suspended in the top of the 4th inning with West End leading 5-1. The game will be resumed tomorrow, 7/14, at 6 PM at the Beaumont Baseball field where it left off. Come out and show your support for our guys, they deserve it. Let's hold 'em West End.
7/12/14 - Barbers Hill beat Bridge City last night so West End will play Barbers Hill for the championship at 6 PM tonight in Bridge City.
We have the advantaage in that we only need one win against Barbers Hill but they would have to beat us twice to advance. Let's win the game tonight and not worry about a second game. Tyler here we come!
7/10/14 - 3 cheers for our West End team! They beat Bridge City 8 - 2 to reach the junior league sectional championship game. They will play that game on Saturday, June 12 at 6 PM in Bridge City against the winner of the Bridge City/Barbers Hill game which will be played Friday, June 11. West End needs to win only 1 of possibly 2 games to advance to the state tournament. Let's travel to Bricge City to cheer them on to state! GOOD LUCK TEAM!
7/9/14 - Our West End team came out on top in a close game vs. Orwall, 7-6. They now face Bridge City Thursday, 7/10/14 at 8:30 PM in Bridge City. Keep it going guys! A win in this game puts them in the sectional championship game later this week; then it's on to state.
Once again Mother Nature had her way and caused the junior league sectional tournament to be rained-out yesterday. It is scheduled to be underway tonight, same place, same time.
The 2014 junior league sectional tournament begins today with Bridge City hosting. West End opens up at 6 PM against Orwall. Hope to see as many Beaumont Baseball fans there as possible to cheer on our team to their first sectional win. GO WEST END!
WEST END IS 2014 DISTRICT 12 JUNIOR LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
July 4, 2014
CONGRATULATIONS WEST END JUNIOR LEAGUE! After losing to Jasper in the opening game of the 2014 District 12 Junior League tournament, West End came back to win 5 straight games including beating Jasper twice (Jasper's only losses) to capture the 2014 District 12 Junior League pennant. This team never gave up. They even had to fight the weather and play Jasper twice on their home field, winning last night 9 - 6 in 7 innings. The game lasted until after midnight due to weather delays. Once again the team played stellar defense, turning three 6-4-3 double plays and turned it up a notch in the late innings to cool the hot bats of Jasper. Also, catcher, Logan Henke, stalled a late rally attempt by Jasper by throwing out a runner at 3rd base and Mike Gresham, Stone Mason and Mitchell Breaux complemented the team with great work on the mound. Three cheers to the team and Manager, Brian Cansler along with assistants Billy Conner, Todd Legendre (not shown in photo) and Mike Bennett. The team now advances to the Sectional tournament hosted by Bridge City beginning Tuesday, July 8 and concluding Saturday, July 12. It's not a far trip so let's all get together and show our guys how much we are behind them on the way to State!!
***UPDATE*** JUNIOR LEAGUE DISTRICT 12 TOURNAMENT
July 1, 2014
6/30/14 - We traveled to Jasper with high hopes and positive attitudes in a must-win situation and it worked! It was a close game through 5 innings with Jasper on top 6-2. That's when the West End guys really came alive. They hit the ball, played great defense and the pitching came through. They scored 7 runs in the 6th inning and 8 runs in the 7th and allowed only one base runner for Jasper in those last two innings. Congratulations to the team and coaches. Final score: West End 17, Jasper 6. The District 12 Junior League championship game will be on Thursday, July 3 at our ballpark at 7:30 PM. We really need all the fan support we can muster to cheer on the team to win the district and advance to Sectionals. ONE MORE WIN! ONE MORE WIN! ONE MORE WIN!
6/28/14 - Our West End team came out swinging against Spindletop and coasted to a 20-1 win to put them in the District 12 championship game against Jasper on Monday, June 30 in Jasper. Like the past few games, this game is a must-win since they have to beat Jasper twice to claim the D12 title and advance to Sectional play. The second game wil be Thursday, July 3 at our field. The team is going to need a lot of fan help to keep hopes alive. Come out and give them the boost they need! GO WEST END!
6/27/14 - Our West End team came through with good pitching, hitting and defense as they won over Lumberton. They now advance to play Spindletop on Saturday, June 28 at 7:30 PM at Spindletop's field. Again, this is a must-win game as the winner advances to face Jasper in the District 12 Junior League championsip game on Monday, June 30 (and Thursday, July 3 if necessary). Let's continue to show these guys we really support them in their efforts to win District 12. Come out in force to cheer them to victory!
6/25/14 - Our teams had to travel to Jasper in order to play last night since our field was soaked. West End came out on top by shutting out Amelia in 5 innings thereby eliminating Amelia from the tournament. West End will play next in Lumberton on Friday, June 27 at 7:30 PM. This is a must-win game for our guys so come out and show them your support.
6/23/14 - A bit of baseball strategy back-fired on our Amelia team as Spindletop managed to get the ball past a drawn-up infield and score a couple of go-ahead runs which proved to be the winners. Now Amelia and West End Junior League tournament teams are both in a must-win situation. They play each other tonight at our field. Hope to see you all at the game to show these kids we really suport them - win or lose. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH TEAMS!
6/21/14 - A combination of errors and walks caused the downfall of our West End team on Saturday, June 21, losing to Jasper 11 - 6. Their next game will be at home at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, June 24, against the loser of the game between our Amelia team and Spindletop which will be played this evening at Spindletop at 7:30 PM. Head over to Spindletop this evening and cheer on our Amelia team to victory then do the same tomorrow evening at our field! GOOD LUCK TEAMS!

If you were at the field on opening day last Saturday I'm sure you were impressed with what you saw. Your Board has been working diligently since last September and many improvements have been made since and a few more still in the works. Special thanks go to the following people:
* Mike Bennett for accepting the Operations Director position and making sure things moved forward
* Brian Cansler, Head of Marketing/Business Development, and Billy Conner, Head of Field Maintenance, who worked tirelessly since September to achieve the goals we set especially in the area of physical facilities
* Paula Gresham, Auxiliary Chair - Concessions, for organizing the concession stand that rivals the best around
Three cheers for these and all the others who helped the league in any way to get ready for the season. Thanks also to the parents and fans who came out to support the teams and our concession stand. We hope to see you at the field often and that you will enjoy the great offerings from Paula and her concesison stand crew.
