Our 2014 OAYL T-Ball Season has come to a conclusion
I hope you all enjoyed this season. I know I did! Hopefully your child or children learned a little and had a lot of fun while doing it. Thank you all for helping to make this another successful and enjoyable season!
Now that our Player Recognition Day has passed and (hopefully by now) you have received your Team Photos, please let me know if there are any issues by emailing me at: email@example.com. I will do my best to resolve any issues.
If you have any comments or suggestions, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE email them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) – good or bad. We want to know what works and what doesn't and what's worth spending your money on.
My #1 goal is to always make sure the kids are having fun, followed by #2 teaching them something while getting some form of exercise, and #3 trying to keep costs down. In order to help keep costs down, as announced at Player Recognition Day, we will again be instituting the UNIFORM PARTIAL REBATE program for players returning next year. If you can reuse your shirt and hat in 2015, we will offer a PARTIAL REBATE of your registration fee. The amount of the rebate has yet to be determined. But I know there are about 8 Thomas Pharmacy jerseys and hats in my house, and I don't really need anymore. Plus, we are looking to lower registration costs again next year, and we will continue to have an all-fundraising option as well.
If your child is graduating to the Big(ger) Leagues – Congrats! And Good Luck! Here are the links for Orwigsburg Little League and Softball

If your child is coming back next year – GREAT! Next year, our league will be open to Orwigsburg area (from anywhere really) boys & girls with birthdates in the years 2008, 2009, 2010.
Check back here in January 2015 for Registration Information for the 2015 OAYL Season.
Hope you all have a wonderful offseason!
Stay Active and Keep Having Fun!
(PS. Special thanks to head coaches Abbey, George, Krista, Jamie, Robyn, Jesse, Joe & Heather and all of those who helped out with prepping the field, Opening Day, and Player Recognition Day. There are truly countless people who all contribute to make this league awesome. GREAT JOB, EVERYONE!)
We are EXTREMELY grateful for the financial support we receive from our Team and Sign Sponsors. Without our sponsors, our registration fees would be double what they are today. Contact information for our Team Sponsors can be found on our website under the "Sponsors" link. [Contact information for our Sign Sponsors is coming soon!!!] I encourage you to use the services that our sponsors provide whenever possible, and please reference OAYL when doing so.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Team or having your sign displayed at our field, please contact OAYL President Brian Baldwin via email at email@example.com or you may call him at 570-294-3889. Although many of our Team Sponsors are longtime supporters, our registration numbers may require us to go to more teams in the future. If that is the case, we would need new Team Sponsors. And we are ALWAYS accepting new Sign Sponsors. Our current annual sponsorship fees are $250 per team and $100 per sign. For new or replaced signs, the fee for the first year becomes $375 which is our cost to fabricate your sign; for subsequent years, it reverts back to $100 annually.
Please help us if you can by becoming a sponsor. Our program depends on the commitment of our volunteers and the financial contributions of our sponsors. Without either, our program cannot succeed.
