This is a reminder of two important safety rules for all Baseball and Softball players in Weston Little League.
#1. There is absolutely NO WARM UP SWINGING. It is a Little League International rule that the swinging of a bat by anyone, other than a player actually at the plate, is banned. It is a further rule of Weston Little League that no players are to swing bats outside the batters box or the designated batting cage area. That means the is no swinging of bats behind the back-stop, in the foul territory of any field or any common area. It is not permitted at any time. Children have been seriously injured and worse by being hit with a swinging bat. We ask that ALL parents help their team coaches by reminding their players of this rule and enforcing it if you see if.
#2 All players must be on their teams bench when not in the field. This does NOT include the area adjacent to their bench, but behind the backstop. They must remain to the outfield side of the entryway to the field. It presents a challenge to coaches in ensuring the safety of their players and is a distraction to those pitching and at the plate. Again, we ask all parents to remind their players that they are to be on the bench only. Non-players should also avoid the area immediately next to the bench and should stay a reasonable distance away from the backstop out of respect for the players on the field.
Please join us on Saturday, May 21st for an enjoyable evening to support the town of Weston Baseball & Softball programs.
What could be better than a fun, casual night with friends and other families from town in support of a great cause near and dear to all of us? A fantastic DJ, delicious food, and great auction items will make this event a memorable one!
As you may know, while many parents are extremely generous with both their time (particularly coaching our kids) and their resources, our program operates at a deficit and relies on some support from the broader community. Additionally, due to some capital projects in the past, that our kids are benefiting from today, the league has financial obligations coming due that are not able to be repaid with registration fees alone. Your support would greatly be appreciated. As a non-profit organization, this is a charitable event and a significant portion of each ticket sold (total ticket price is $200 per adult - adults only please.) will be tax deductible. Thanks to the generosity of some families in town who are underwriting the cost of the party, almost all of your contribution directly will support Weston Baseball & Softball’s operations.
Tickets will likely sell out quickly so purchase yours today so you don't miss out. If you are unable to attend, we appreciate your donation.
