Dear parents,


On behalf of the entire board, I would like to welcome you back for another exciting season of baseball and softball.  I hope that this summer is an enjoyable one for all.  This letter contains a lot of information that you are going to need for this season.  I urge you to read through it carefully, and keep this handy so that you may reference it again as the season progresses.


The first day of practice this year will be the week of April 1st.  The draft will be held the weekend of March 25th.  If you have not heard from your coach within a week after the draft, please contact me at (217) 304-5883 or email me at  I will be sure to lead you in the right direction. 


Pictures will be taken on Sunday May 7th.  Times will be given to your coaches and passed along. Please make plans to have your child there.  Whether you're purchasing pictures or not, please have your children present for the team picture.  We give our sponsors plaques with the team picture on it as a token of our appreciation.  The picture company will accommodate families of multiple players, if you want your children’s pictures taken together.


You will once again be asked to work the concession stand on your team's assigned evening.  Please do what you can to help out when asked, as this is our best way to generate revenue for future seasons.  You will be entered to win a free registration for next season for volunteering.  Winners will be drawn every Friday and posted on our website. 


The season is scheduled to start on May 15th.  The Twilight division will start at a later date due to high school softball.  T- Ball will also start a little bit later.  I look for that to be around the first week of June.  The season will end July 7th, with the end of the season tournament running from July 10th-14th.  The Day of Champions will be on the July 15th this year, and it will be hosted by Catlin . 


Don’t forget you can access us on the web by going to, or find us on Facebook at  You will find a lot of useful information there, including: game results, rain out info, and tournament schedules. Please take advantage of our online registration program available through our website. We urge you to sign up for text alerts on the site, as we will send out vital information throughout the season. Text alerts will be sent out when games are cancelled due to rain or other circumstances.   


We look forward to having a great season this summer!  Thanks again for your participation in the league,


Allan Mackiewicz
