Fall Season Announcement
To All Western Hills Families:
Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding as we all have been focused on our friends and families affected by this unthinkable disaster. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the people of Houston as well as anyone dealing with the storm. We recognize that with the start of school, families are busy and lives are hectic. As a result, in an effort to get our Fall Baseball started without creating a scheduling nightmare for you, we are going to eliminate tryouts for this fall. Both the Minors and Majors divisions will be formed by our commissioners and reviewed by both Greg Rives and Mark Greenberg. We will make every effort to keep the teams as fair as possible.
We also want to make sure that all of you are aware of the schedule for the fall. The following will be and overview:
Tball: 1 game/week on Tuesday
Coach Pitch: 1 game/week on Thursday
MP7: 1 game/wk on Wednesday
MP8: 1 game/wk on Wednesday
Minors: 2 games/wk on Monday and Tuesday
Majors: 2 games/wk on Monday and Thursday
Pony: 2 games/wk on Sunday
I would like to again thank you all for your patience and understanding as we navigate through some alterations for this fall. I am certain it will be a great season and look forward to getting on the field. Thanks again to all of our commissioners for their hard work and ability to adjust on short notice.
President Western Hills
IMPORTANT - Little League Bat Changes
With Fall Ball getting ready to start up, you may be considering purchasing a new bat. If this is the case, it would be best to wait for a little bit longer. Little League Baseball along with some other baseball organizations are adopting the USA baseball bat standard. Starting on January 1, 2018, all bats used in Little League Baseball will need to meet the new standards and have the USA Baseball label. Only new bats, that are supposed to start hitting stores this fall, will meet this new requirement. Unfortunately, Little League-approved baseball bats that are approved for use for the 2017 season will no longer be acceptable for use in any Little League game or activity starting on January 1, 2018.
The link below has a video and additional information regarding the new standards and also explains how Tee Ball bats can still be used in Tee Ball divisions, as long as they are labeled Tee Ball and you add the required USA Baseball Sticker.

Weather Policy Updates
The weather forecast is predicting inclement weather this weekend. As a reminder, "If lightning is seen, thunder is heard, OR if the Little League Weather Bug App (Spark) shows lightning within a 10 mile radius, all teams must evacuate to a safe location. All activities will be immediately suspended for a minimum of 30 minutes. Play may resume if lightning has not been seen for 30 minutes, thunder has not been heard for 30 minutes, and the Little League Weather Bug App (Spark) does NOT show lightning within a 10 mile radius within the last 30 minutes. Remember, If you hear it, clear it!"
We will do our best to update the website, the weather hotline, and communicate to commissioners and coaches, but we ask everyone to monitor for the safety our players and families.
Games for MP8, Minors, Majors, and Pony may be delayed but we will make every effort to start games as close to their original starting time as possible.
For specific details on game delays and cancellations, please see below:
