As many of you have heard, there will be WBSA baseball in Whitman this season! Games will be starting around 7/6/20. We are currently looking for youth umpires league age 14 and above to umpire Farm and Minors games. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19, we cannot host classroom umpire training sessions this season. Because of this, WBSA is only allowing youth umpires who have previously umpired with WBSA in the past to be considered for this season. We appologize to all of the 13 year olds who were looking forward to the opportunity, but we cannot safely train you at this point. Hopefully all of this is behind us next year and you are still interested. We are trying to possibly put together an onfield refresher course for those who have umpired before and wish to again this season. Please note: all home plate umpiring will be done from behind the pitcher's mound, eliminating the close proximity to the catcher and batter and also eliminating the need for protective equipment that the umps normally share. If you or your child is interested in umpiring, please email John Bergeron, Umpire in Cheif at [email protected] The pay is $25 per game, per umpire, regardless of whether you are a plate ump or field ump. Please list your name, date of birth and previous umpiring experience in the email. More info to come.
Come out March 21st for a great afternoon for a great cause!!
U14 Softball Championship Game !
Thank you to the WBSA and UIC John Bergeron for once again allowing me to help with our Youth Umpire Program. As John is doing this year and as past UIC's have done before him, we are training our youth umpires so that they are the wiser than their years when officiating baseball or softball. We have a very good training system that has been in place for 20 years or so, something I put together a generation ago, and it still works. I will try to streamline it a bit more this fall/winter [baseball never stops for me] and update the documents to the WBSA when it's done. Thank you to all the young ladies & gentlemen for their attention in the class room and at the field clinic. ANY questions at all, send them to John Bergeron, and John can then flip them to me. USE YOUR RESOURCES... Respects all, Ed O'Dell

Hello WBSA Families & Friends,

Great news! The Governor has just released the rules for the next phase concerning sporting events.

Sporting Event Rules
https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Images/Club/13208/phase-updates.jpg

In terms of social distancing rules, they will remain the same.

Enter and drop off your child by the benches near the concession stand
Leave the fields by the batting cage
During games, areas will be signed and designated for the players. We will not be using the dugouts for the full team

As a last note, we cannot stress how important it is for parents and spectators to spread out. We request that everyone use all available areas, including beyond the outfields, to watch your players. We appreciate your help and cooperation on this.

Thanks and have a great 4th of July!

Farm Updates:

Our Farm Program will start Tuesday, June 30. We will host practices and games Tuesdays 6- 7:30 and no later than 8. We have 4 great Coaches and assistants that are excited to instruct our younger players in drills and stations while practicing social distancing.

Minors Updates:

Minors will have a 6 week, 6 game regular season and then playoffs. Most weeks will comprise 1 or 2 games, weeks with one game will have an organized practice.

Majors Updates:

Majors has 4 strong teams with 4 great returning managers and assistant coaches. We are very excited to announce 2 weeks of crossover games playing each of Abington’s 4 Major League teams this year. We will also play each of our own teams 3 times for a total of 10 regular season games and then a Whitman Championship playoff.

Juniors Updates:

Juniors are proud to announce we have 2 full teams to compete with 8 surrounding teams in some very competitive crossover games. The season will be 6 weeks long with playoffs at the end of the regular season. We have 2 great coaches and assistants to guide our young players in 2020.

Updates on Safety:

Minors and Majors drop off at middle school will be near the concession stands. The WBSA Board and Coaches will assist this week so we can conduct social distancing wherever possible. Please review the rules. Please take your child's temperature prior to drop off and if you’re not feeling 100%, please stay home.

WBSA Covid 19 Rules and Regulations for Whitman Little League Phase 2 (Practices) -https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Images/Club/13208/WBSA%20Covid%2019%20Rules%20and%20Regulations%20for%20Whitman%20Little%20League.pdf

We have hand sanitizer and wipes for use by the players and coaches. Coaches and League officers will have marked and will know where they are. All Players must have their own helmet. If you can’t get a helmet for your child, WBSA will provide one. Players are also urged to have their own bats. All players must use their own glove and batting gloves. No sharing of these. All Players must have their own water bottle, thermos, and any personal food items to be kept with their equipment in their dedicated fence section area. Please inform coaches of any medical issues prior to first practice.

Please have your kids use the bathroom at home right before they go to practices. Bathrooms will be open if needed. Rules state that bathrooms should be used as little as possible.

We want All Players and Coaches to remain healthy, so please be smart and respectful of Our Whitman Baseball community. We will ask All Players and a Guardian (Parent) to sign the rules for 2020 as we will Strictly enforce the Rules and Restrictions.

We will have some additional game rules and regulations when the Governor signs off in the next few weeks. Parents must also adhere to Social Distancing and we will enforce this. All the fields have plenty of space and area for parents or guardians to watch. Each fence section is over 6 feet apart, so we ask you to use these separate sections for each family.

We are excited to start and appreciate the Board of Health, Town Officials, and our Board of Directors that worked very hard to get us back to playing Whitman Baseball this year. We know this is a lot but we want to make sure we are thorough and professional as we conduct this important and very much needed 2020 Baseball Season.

Please reach out to Julie Cappelletti ([email protected]) if you have questions about Safety.

Thanks and Play Ball!

[06/08/20]   Hey Everyone,

We’re letting everyone know we will finalize teams by this Friday. After that’s complete, coaches will reach out about procedures and practices, which should start as early as next week for Juniors & Majors/Minors. Farm will start after that.

As a note, we ask you to check your child’s registration to verify your child’s age so we can place them in the correct age bracket. Just log into wbsall.com, choose your account, and click your child’s name to verify their information. Also, if you have not paid yet, please do so so we can pay for uniforms and equipment.

If you have questions, please reach out to John Graham.

We look forward to getting the season started!

Thanks,

WBSA

[06/05/20]   Hello WBSA families,

Get excited to get started playing baseball! We’ve worked with the Whitman Board of Health to put together a detailed plan to ensure our players’ and families’ safety during practices. We’ll be updating this plan in phase 3 to cover game rules.

WBSA Covid 19 Rules and Regulations for Whitman Little League Phase 2 (Practices)

We feel these measures will keep our players and families safe during baseball activities and will require strict adherence to all guidelines for all coaches, players, and families.

We’ll be starting practices for Juniors and Majors/Minors June 17th. We’re planning to start games on June 29th.

The Farm program will kick-off a week later, June 24th.

Coaches will reach out to their players before practices start.

Update on Instructional Baseball

We’ve met as a board tonight and decided that in the best interest of safety, we’ve voted to cancel the Instructional Baseball season for Spring 2020. We’re hoping to host at least one baseball clinic later in July for our Instructional players. We’ll coordinate with the Whitman Board of Health to determine when and if this will happen.

It was a tough decision to make, but we feel it is best for our Instructional players’ safety.

If you’re unsure about having your child play baseball this season, we understand. That’s why we’d like to inform everyone that if you would like to roll over your child’s registration until next season, you can lock in the registration fee you’ve paid for the 2020 spring season, even if your child is moving up to a higher level program next season. This also applies to Instructional Baseball.

Please reach out to [email protected] by Saturday to inform us if your child will not take part, as we’ll be putting teams together this weekend.

If you have already signed up for the 2020 Spring Season, other than for Instructional Baseball, your children will be assigned to a team. Coaches will be in touch soon.

If you would like a refund, please reach out to [email protected]. For Instructional Baseball, we’ll automatically roll over your child’s registration to the next season unless you request a refund.

If you have questions, please reach out to John Graham ([email protected]).

We’ve been working hard through this crisis to put together a great program for our kids, and we’re thrilled to start up Whitman Little League!

Thanks,

WBSA
