 September BOARD MEETING/Elections

Tuesday, 9/13/2016 / 6:30p @ Zalenski's

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Congratulations to our Pinto All-Star Team!

Pinto All-Stars attended 4 tournaments and brought home quite a bit of hardware! 

The team finished 1st in Wintersville, Weirton and Martins Ferry and 2nd in Oak Glen.  

As a whole their record is 18-1 through four tournaments against some stiff competition.  

 

What a great job these players, coaches and parents did representing our league both on and off the field.  I

've had several calls and e-mails from other leagues just to tell me what a great group of kids and parents we have!

ICYBSL is Ahead of the Curve

Effective this year, the WBA Board voted and approved an initiative –PitchSmart- as a proactive measure to help protect young players reduce arm injuries and follow safe pitching practices throughout our league, at every division.  

 NOW  MLB and ABCA have officially endorsed this program! 

What is PitchSmart?A series of practical, age-appropriate guidelines (see article below) to help parents,players and coaches avoid overuse injuries and foster long, healthy careers for youth pitchers.  

These guidelines will be posted in each of our dugouts going forward.

It’s great to be a Trendsetter yet even more satisfying that the health and safety of our children remain the league’s #1 priority.
