The concessions stand is now open!
We know a lot of parents spend most of their evenings at the ballpark, so this year we thought we would try a little something different.
We will be offering daily specials all throughout the season, to help parents with evening meals.
Daily Specials will be:
Tuesday- hamburger, fries/chips & drink - $4.50 (cheeseburger - $5.00)
*P.S. Also be on the look out for new menu items:
We are proud to announce that this year we have partnered up with the Danville Dans to offer Meet the Dans Night at the park. We will have a few players coming to the park on Monday June 19th to meet with, and sign autographs for all the kids and parents.
We will also be selling tickets at the concession stand for WRL night at the park. On Wednesday July 12th the WRL will have our own night Danville Stadium. Tickets for this game will be $6 a piece, with half of the proceeds going to the WRL. All kids will get into this game for free by wearing their WRL uniform. These tickets will get you in to this game, plus an additional game of your choice. The Dans will also be raffling off prizes to the people who purchase these tickets through the WRL. Please come out to show your support for the youth of our rec league.
Attention Parent's, you will be receiving raffle tickets on the first day of practice from your coach. You have the option to sell 4 raffle tickets at $25 each, or pay a one time $25 opt out fee. You have the option to sell as many tickets as you would like. There will be cash prizes to whomever sells the most tickets. 1st prize is $200, 2nd prize is $100, and 3rd prize is $50. Good luck to everyone, and thank you from all of us on the Rec board. (TICKETS ARE TO BE TURNED IN TO THE CONCESSION STAND, OR A BOARD MEMBER) Tickets should be turned in no later than June 23rd. The drawing will take place on July 4th.
All Parent t-shirt order forms should be turned in to your coaches no later than May 1st.
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 email@example.com. 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 .
This season we will be trying something new to raise money for future projects. Future projects include a new batting cage, warm up mounds on fields, and new lime for all the fields. We will be raffling 2 guns this year, an AR15 and a 9mm. There will also be a cash option of $750 and $450, respectively. A valid Illinois FOID card will be required to claim a gun as a prize. We ask that all of our families participating in this upcoming season sell 4 raffle tickets each. Each ticket will be $25 a piece. If you do not wish to participate in the raffle, there is an opt-out fee of $25 per family.
Don’t forget you can access us on the web by going to www.westvillerecleague.net, or find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WestvilleRecLeague. 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,
Westville Recreation League President
A letter from Kelli Howard:
I just wanted to thank the Westville Rec League, parents, and the girls who came out for an introductory lesson to pitching . It's great seeing kids who are willing to put forth extra time to work on their skills.
With that being said, I am available for pitching sessions. Lessons are $15 an hour per child in groups of 5 or more. Contact me via Facebook Messenger or call/text 217-918-0084.
