**Travel Baseball is coming to Wintersville**
This year we’re going to try to do something a little different than we’ve done in the past in Wintersville Baseball. At the age levels of 10u, 12u and 14u, if there is enough interest among the players, we will begin a Travel Baseball program. More information for players concerning costs, timeframe, and try-outs will be coming very soon – so watch your e-mail.
In order to have a great Travel program, we need to have GREAT coaches. Monday evening (October 20) at 6pm, the board will ask coaches who may be interested in coaching one of our travel teams to participate in an interview process at Bantam Ridge Elementary (in front of the baseball fields). We apologize for the short notice, but in order to have viable teams entering travel programs in 2015, we must be able to declare our intentions and enter the teams. We’re already a little behind on the timeline we plan to have in future years.
Please contact WBA Secretary Laura Rauch at 304-723-8509 ASAP to arrange for a specific interview time if you are interested in coaching.

Board of Directors
***Congratulations to the 2015 WBA Board of Directors***
On Sunday, September 7th, at the monthly WBA meeting, elections were held for the 2015 Wintersville Baseball Board of Directors.
Please join us in thanking departing board members for their service to the WBA. We are a better organization today for their years of involvement and input. Leaving the board this year are Herman Campbell, Jason Michalos and Josh Morris.
The board added two new positions this year, which means we've gained 5 new faces and (hopefully) many new thoughts and ideas! Some of our current members also moved to new areas of responsibility. This movement allows our board members to continue their involvement, while not stagnating in one position.
Please join us in congratulating and welcoming the 2015 Wintersville Baseball Board of Directors:
President - John Stout
Vice President - Dave Ferroni
Secretary - Laura Rauch
Treasurer - Stan Cottis
Pony Division - Bob Barnett
Bronco Division - Jason Baker
Mustang Division - Todd Girga
Pinto Division - Nate Gump
Shetland Division - Jen Barnett
Concessions - Chrissy Baker
Fundraising - Melanie Carver
