Some Things For 2019

Our new bathroom has also been open for a while now.We are looking to do many smaller uprades around our park inculding securing our building and the purchase of some new tables and chairs. Many upgrades have been done over the last 5 years and we should all be proud of our park. Please take the time to keep it clean by using garbages and keeping cans in piles to be picked nearby the garbage.
-First and last names of all players on all gamesheets. Umpires have been instructed that they will not be paid without proper first and last names. Also must have team name, coaches signature and Dual Division male players must be identified in Coed games with a simple DD beside their name.

-SPN has not made safety equipment mandatory at this time. Our league will also follow this. However we do recommend wearing equipment to protect yourself as you feel necessary. Such as pitching and infielder masks, shin guards, and batting helmets. Any players caught making fun of another or insulting another for wearing protective equipment will be ejected from the game and subsequently suspended.
