Baseball & Softball Season Information
May 6, 2015
Teams in MOST divisions are formed, and some divisions still have some openings.
Our website, www.LewPortSports.com will soon be updated with all Game Schedules, Rosters, and Standings.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYE ON THIS SITE for up to date information!
Seniors Teams game schedules do not start until after High School Spring sports have completed, usually on or around June 1. We are still in need of one coach for Teams in Boys Seniors (13-15) and Girls Seniors (12-14) have yet to assemble for practices.
ROSTERS - for all formed teams, including Tee Ball, are found by clicking on "Baseball/Softball", then "Teams". Find your child's name. To contact your coach, just click on the coaches name and an email address will pop up. We are still adding some late registrations, so the rosters may not be 100% up to date, but we are doing our best to update.
Uniforms will be handed out to teams the week before Opening Day (May 12-16) as they become available. Your coach will be giving you a shirt, pants (or shorts) socks and a hat. All coaches will line up their teams biggest to smallest and give out uniforms accordingly. Your uniform will NOT BE A PERFECT FIT. Pants are returned and reused every year. It is recommended that you purchase new, gray pants for the year at any sporting goods store (Laux, Stuart Sports) or even Department Store (Target, Walmart), since used pants can often be stained.
OPENING DAY and PICTURE DAY is Saturday, May 16. There will be a brief introduction of teams and sponsors, free hot dogs, and bounce houses and obstacle courses for the kids until 2:30PM. We hope you can bring out the entire family for a fun day for everybody before the season begins! Picture Schedule will be as follows
Tee Ball 11:30
Starters / Girls Minors 12:15
Boys Minors / Majors 1:00PM
Girls Ponytails / Travel 1:30PM
Rainouts during the season are unfortunately part of baseball. If a day is rained out, the Recreation Department will update our website, www.LewPortSports.com, and contact all of the coaches, who will then notify the team. Decisions on rainouts are made at 4:50PM. Please do not call Town Hall, as 600 participants calling will clog vital phone lines.
Lewiston Baseball & Softball depends on funding from the Town of Lewiston Recreation Department but FUNCTIONS on volunteers and services provided by our citizens in the community. If you haven’t signed up to be a coach, please consider signing up to volunteer in the concession stand, or during the June and July Weekend Baseball and Softball Tournaments. Game Officials and Scorekeepers are ALWAYS needed, as we bring in over 250 teams from all over the country to compete here in Lewiston. To volunteer even an hour, please email Mike at email@example.com
Closing Picnic & Awards Ceremony is set for Wednesday, August 5. At the picnic, which is provided by the Town of Lewiston, kids will have hamburgers and Hot Dogs, entertainment, and fun bounce houses and obstacle courses. All participants of Lewiston Baseball in non-Travel Divisions are given an award, and league champion given special trophies at this picnic. We also honor our neighborhood roots by making this picnic a “Bring a Dish to Pass” event, and in the past our friends, families and players get to enjoy AWESOME Lewiston home recipes.
Umpires in the league are all former or current Lewiston Baseball / Softball Players. They are kids, and not expected to be perfect, just respectful and as knowledgeable of the rules as possible. Each Umpire wears a shirt dedicated to Jonathon “JMill” Miller, an impressive young man and umpire taken away too soon. On their shirts is the slogan “LBFODAT”, which stands for JMill’s motto, “Live by Faith, One Day at a Time”.
