Orwigsburg Memorial Day Parade – Monday, May 25

Updated 05/21/15

It’s been tradition that the OAYL T-Ball teams walk in the Orwigsburg Memorial Day Parade.  The players walk as teams and each team gets a turn carrying the OAYL banner.

 

Orwigsburg Memorial Day Parade, May 25

Gather at Orwigsburg Memorial Building parking lot at 7:45am.  Parade starts at 8am.

The route is probably the same as last year…Starts at the Memorial, down to the blinker, turn right onto E Market thru the square to Franklin, turn left then left onto Independence and left on S Warren back to square

We will be walking as teams with each team getting a chance to carry our League banner.  It’s a bit of walking, but almost all downhill.

 

Wear your team shirts & hats (Coaches wear your shirts & hats too).  Feel free to bring or add any patriotic accessories.

 

NO GLOVES

NO CLEATS (wear sneakers)

 

At the conclusion of the parade, there will be a brief Memorial Day ceremony on the Square.  We won’t be a part of the ceremony, but I encourage you to stay.  This is a good opportunity to show our thanks and support to our armed service members past and present, especially to remember those that gave their life in service to our country.

 

It’s also a great opportunity to show our thanks to our League team sponsors by parading around in our uniforms.

 

Hope to see you all there!

The Board has decided to have all Head and Assistant Coaches complete a Volunteer Application for 2015.  It can be found under the "Handouts" section of the Main Menu.  Please return the Application to your Head Coach or Other Board Member ASAP.  They also can be emailed to oayltball@hotmail.com.  If you plan to be on the field or bench during practices or games, you MUST complete an application.

What to expect

Updated 03/24/15

Every coach is different, so each coach might have their own special ways of managing their teams.  But, generally speaking, all your child will need to bring to practices are:

·      Glove

·      Water Bottle/Drink

 

SHOES – We do not require baseball cleats be worn, but they are permissible.  NO METAL SPIKES are allowed.  Some kids will wear their soccer shoes.  Others just wear old playground shoes.  DO NOT have them wear brand-new school sneakers – the infield dirt tends to discolor sneakers when the ground is wet.

 

HELMETS & BATS – The league has many batting helmets and bats of various sizes and of decent quality for your child to use, so you will NOT need to bring your own.  However, some kids will bring their own helmets & bats, and that's fine.

 

UNIFORMS – Uniforms will be distributed just before games start (around late April).  Our uniforms consist of a shirt and a hat (true for both players and coaches).  We do NOT supply baseball pants or socks.  Kids can wear whatever they desire on their legs – baseball pants, shorts, sweat pants, etc.  If you are going to purchase new baseball pants, we suggest a gray color.

 

FACILITIES – We have no running water, but we will have a portable toilet onsite for practices and games.  The Concession Stand will only be open during games, selling mostly chips, snacks, candy and cold beverages.  Occasionally there will be pizza slices for purchase.

 

FIELD OF PLAY – Only coaches who are cleared by the league are permitted on the field during practices and games.  Each player MUST wear a heart-guard chest protector whenever they are on the field.  These are provided by the League.  No player is permitted to swing a bat outside the fenced area/field of play.

 

WHATEVER YOU BRING – PUT YOUR NAME ON IT, especially hats, gloves, water bottles, and anything you want back if lost.

 

EXPECT TO HAVE FUN!!!

Please note that we are not affiliated with either Orwigsburg Little League or Orwigsburg Area Girls Softball.  Although most of our kids "graduate" to these two, outstanding leagues, we are an independent organization relying on our own funding sources.  Being independent also means our kids are not subject to strict rules regarding residency or age (within safe reason). 

Every kid that wants to play deserves to play!
