2018 WSP Baseball Season Schedule Posted!

West St Paul Baseball schedules have been posted under the Schedules tab. You can easily download or subscribe to specific team schedules if you would like to add them to your personal calendar.


START OF THE SEASON:
 Keep in mind that, even though it's beautiful outside today .... the start of baseball season depends on Mother Nature and may need to be adjusted based on field conditions.  As of today, we'd like to remind you to STAY OFF the fields as they are still very wet and not yet in playable condition.


We know you are as anxious as we are to get the season started, and we will keep you updated this week as conditions change and, hopefully, continue to improve.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
