A message from our President, Bob Henley....

On Wednesday, June 22, 2016, WHCYBSL will be holding its Annual Meeting and end of season picnic.  The only order of business is to elect Members to the Board for the 2016/2017 fiscal year.

I would encourage all of you to consider volunteering to serve on the Board.  While we contract with HCR&P to provide certain services for us, our League is run entirely by our volunteer Board.  To see the open positions, click here for the 2016-2017 ballot.   If a name is listed under the position, it means that the incumbent Board member is currently planning on running for the Board again this year for the same position.   However, that does not mean that others cannot also run for those same Board positions.

We also are going to have several open positions due to current Board Members opting not to run for re-election next year.  I would like to thank Fred Kaufman, Kathy Reed, Beth Gravanda and Pat Baehr, all of whom are stepping down at the end of this League year, for their many years of Board service!  The open Board positions are as follows:

Travel Softball Coordinator (currently held by Roby Colosimo, who is running for Director of Softball next year)
Rec Softball coordinator
Concessions and Event Coordinator
Baseball 6-8 Age Group Coordinator
Baseball 15-18 Age Group Coordinator
Director of Communications (duties currently being performed by the League VP, Tracy Houghton)

If anyone is interested in learning more about any of these positions, or would like to request that their name be placed on the ballot, please feel free to send me an email at, or call my cell at 410-627-4386.

Many thanks,
Bob Henley


FREE Softball Skills Clinic

Our travel softball program, the Western Howard County Fever, is planning to offer a FREE skills clinic on Friday May 27th at Schooley Mill Park (Field #1) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The clinic will be run by Fever Coaches, as well as Fever Players, and will involve throwing, fielding, batting, base running pitching and catching. If your daughter is interested, please email Robyn Colosimo by Wednesday (5/25) evening indicating your daughter’s name, age, and any particular skill area she wants to work on.

Questions regarding the clinic  can be directed to Robyn at 443.756.0608 or



Softball Select Team Tryouts

We will be conducting tryouts for two “select” teams (one each at the 10u and 12u level).

Select teams play after the completion of the recreational softball season and involve both games and tournament play. Select teams are a perfect way to extend game play throughout the summer and are designed to further develop player softball skills.

Tryouts dates for these teams will take place the 2nd week in June. If your daughter is interested in trying out for such a team, please email
Robyn ColosimoAlso, if you have an interest in helping coach either team, please also reach out to Robyn.

Questions regarding the select teams can be directed to Robyn at 443.756.0608 or


Mark your calendars....
2016 Coaches' End of Season Picnic will be held on Wednesday, June 22nd from 6pm - 8:30pm at Western Regional Park - Pavilion #9
