2016 Spring Classic Review

April 4, 2016 – 07:15 PM

Thanks to all of the players, parents, family members, and volunteers that made this weekend's Spring Classic a great success.  With less than ideal weather conditions, teams from all around the area were able to kick off their seasons!  Results can be found under the 2016 Spring Classic tab on the left side of the page.

We congratulate all of the Champions and Runner Ups from this weekend and wish all of the teams good luck with their 2016 seasons.  We hope to see everyone back at the end of June for the Summer Classic!


April 3, 2016 – 06:45 AM

All 8am games for Sunday are being delayed to 9am.  This affects the following divisions...

8U B, 9U B, 12U A (KF only), 12U B1, 13U B, and 14U B

For divisions being delayed, the morning preliminary round games will be 90 minute, no new inning, games with start times of 9am and 10:45am in order to allow teams the necessary time to travel to their semifinal destinations.

For the 14U B groups at NH, we will stick with a straight 1 hour delay on all of your game times - 9am, 10:45am, and 12:30pm - since those games were already slated for 90 minutes.  We ask that teams advancing to the semifinals in that age group do their best to get to FHRC as quickly as possible.  The FHRC site host will start the semis as soon as it is comfortably feasible for those teams arriving at the site.

Thanks to everyone for their flexibility with these crazy weather conditions.  We are hopeful the weather will be more manageable by late morning.  The Schedule / Results Tab will be updated shortly we these times.  Thanks.
