Warminster Baseball and Softball is an all volunteer, non-profit organization. The organization is entirely funded by registration fees, fundraisers and sponsors. From t-shirts and caps, to the sheds and everything in them, your generous support makes it happen. We would like to thank the parents, sponsors, coaches, managers and directors for their time, talent and support. Also, we thank the Centennial School District and Warminster Township, for the use of their fields!

Hopeful about New Fields!

Thank you all for the great turn out and support! Every seat taken, shoulder to shoulder, standing room only, and all the way out the door!

At times, passionate dialog ruffled some feathers, but in all, discussion was productive. The Township Board has asked the developer to provide more planning detail prior to Hart School property being considered for an R2 zoning change. The developer would like to build all single family homes throughout the property. While leaving no room for fields or associated parking, the developer did commit to helping the community and WBBA build more fields. The specifics were not outlined, but a committee made up of all parties will present ideas to create new fields, elsewhere in the township. If you are interested in joining this committee, we welcome your emails to wbba@verizon.net.

 

We do appreciate the developer’s efforts here. During this planning he has allowed us to continue playing and now commits to help with replacement fields. Centennial School District is also aware of our hardship presented to us when school property is sold. The Township has offered to identify matching funds and grants for finance. And the WBBA is anxious to do the hard work and also start fundraising. As a community, I am sure we can come out of this better than where we started.

 

Thanks again! We all benefit from the work we do to help our children!

 

Sincerely, The Warminster Baseball and Softball Association.

Batting Helmets!

Batting Helmets are required for all ages of baseball and softball. The addition of a facemask is required for softball players. While a couple team helmets will be made available to players, it is highly recommended that players bring their own helmet, that they do not share. Head lice has become a common problem in our school district and may be spread through sharing of head gear. You will certainly find a good selection of gear in sporting goods stores. Helmets can also be found discounted at local department stores. 

Softball Offense often wear headgear, too!

Coaches should wear helmets! A New York Little League coach died Saturday after a youngster's line drive rocketed back to the pitcher's mound, where he had been throwing batting practice from behind a netting.

Richard Becher, 50, was on the mound during batting practice for his son's team at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank when a ball struck up the middle by a 12-year-old batter knocked him unconscious around 5:30 p.m. Several bystanders unsuccessfully tried to revive the Holbrook resident before he was rushed to Brookhaven Memorial Medical Center in East Patchogue, where he was pronounced dead, the New York Post reports.

Retailers offer "Base Coach Helmets" for about $20. This is REQUIRED equipment for all Connie Mack base coaches.

Call for Sponsors!

Have you considered becoming a sponsor? Now, is a great time! New, with a $125 contribution, the WBBA will create a 4'x2.5' sign for an outfield fence or backstop! For details, the following sponsorship programs are available [click here]. Your donation will help our boys and girls with equipment, uniforms and field facilities they deserve. Without your help, it would not be possible to run this organization. THANK YOU!

How are our dues spent?

The WBBA is an all volunteer, non profit organization. Annually, we register about 800 of our township children (including Fall Ball). This results in an operating budget of about $120,000. On average, $150 is spent to provide for each player. We thank you for your support!
