2018 Lewiston Baseball & Softball League Information

April 27, 2018

 

Teams in MOST divisions are formed, and some divisions still have some openings.

 Our website,      www.LewPortSports.com will soon be updated with all Game Schedules, Rosters, and Standings.  As of May 9, all division with the exception of Boys Seniors (13-15) have been assigned.  There are still spaces available in Girls Minors (7-9), Starters (7-8) and Boys Seniors (13-15).  All other divisions are now on a waiting list.

 

PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYE ON WWW.LEWPORTSPORTS.COM for up to date information!

 

BOYS Seniors Teams game schedules do not start until after High School Spring sports have completed, usually on or around June 1.  We are still in need of one coach for Teams in Boys Seniors (13-15) and we are still in need of 2-3 more players to complete a team.  Please reach out to friends that have yet to sign up!

BOYS MAJORS DIVISON has not yet started as we search for coaches!

Boys Seniors (13-15), Boys Majors (11-12), Boys Minors (9-10), Ponytails (10-11), and Girls Seniors (12-14) divisions are all TRAVEL DIVISIONS.  These teams will play most of their games at Lewiston Home Parks, but will be expected to travel within Niagara County for games.  This is a change in 2018 for Boys Minors (9-10).  If you are not comfortable with this change, we will refund your registration fee before the season starts.

Since many divisions now have a WAITING LIST, the league will be enforcing a "No Call - No Show" policy.  If your child misses three practices or games without notifying your coach on your intention to continue playing, your child will be replaced by a player on the waiting list.  COMMUNICATION is the key.  Since Baseball and Softball are sports that are dependent on the active participation of a full team, your child can ruin the experience of his/her entire team by excessive absences.  

ROSTERS - for all formed teams, including Tee Ball, are found by clicking on "Teams and Rosters" on the site.  Find your child's name.  To contact your coach, just click on the coaches name and an email address will pop up.  We are still adding some late registrations, so the rosters may not be 100% up to date, but we are doing our best to update.

Uniforms will be handed out to teams the week before Opening Day (May 12-16) as they become available.  The league will be giving you a shirt, pants (or shorts) socks and a hat.  UNiform try-ons have begun in every division, and coaches will send players to the concession stands for fittings.  Your uniform may NOT BE A PERFECT FIT.  Pants are returned and reused every year.  It is recommended that you purchase new, gray pants for the year at any sporting goods store (Laux, Stuart Sports) or even Department Store (Target, Walmart), since used pants can often be stained. 

PICTURE DAY is Saturday, June 2nd.  There will be a brief introduction of teams and sponsors, free hot dogs, and bounce houses and obstacle courses for the kids until 2:30PM.  We hope you can bring out the entire family for a fun day for everybody!  Picture Schedule will be as follows

Girls Ponytails / Seniors  10:30AM

 Starters / Girls Minors  11:00AM

Tee Ball 12:00PM

Boys Minors / Majors  1:00PM

Travel Teams and Makeups  1:30PM

Rainouts during the season are unfortunately part of baseball.  If a day is rained out, the Recreation Department will update our website, www.LewPortSports.com, and contact all of the coaches, who will then notify the team.  Decisions on rainouts are made at 4:50PM. Please do not call Town Hall, as 400 participants calling will clog vital phone lines.

 Lewiston Baseball & Softball depends on funding from the Town of Lewiston Recreation Department but FUNCTIONS on volunteers and services provided by our citizens in the community.  If you haven’t signed up to be a coach, please consider signing up to volunteer in the concession stand, or during the June and July Weekend Baseball and Softball Tournaments.  Game Officials and Scorekeepers are ALWAYS needed, as we bring in over 250 teams from all over the country to compete here in Lewiston.  To volunteer even an hour, please email Mike at dash3640@yahoo.com

 Closing Picnic & Awards Ceremony is set for Wednesday, August 8.  At the picnic, which is provided by the Town of Lewiston, kids will have hamburgers and Hot Dogs, entertainment, and fun bounce houses and obstacle courses.  All participants of Lewiston Baseball in non-Travel Divisions are given an award, and league champion given special trophies at this picnic.  We also honor our neighborhood roots by making this picnic a “Bring a Dish to Pass” event, and in the past our friends, families and players get to enjoy AWESOME Lewiston home recipes.

 Umpires in the league are all former or current Lewiston Baseball / Softball Players.  They are kids, and not expected to be perfect, just respectful and as knowledgeable of the rules as possible.  Each Umpire wears a shirt dedicated to Jonathon “JMill” Miller, an impressive young man and umpire taken away too soon.  On their shirts is the slogan “LBFODAT”, which stands for JMill’s motto, “Live by Faith, One Day at a Time”.
