Field Clean Up Day
Dear WBSALL Families,
 
As the spring season quickly approaches, it is time for Field Clean Up Day to prepare the various fields around town for play ( The Middle school, Conley, and The Town Park). Even if the grounds are snow covered or wet, we will be out there to prepare the facilities.
 
Saturday March 25th from 9-12, we need volunteers to help with many preparations that include but are not limited to:
Putting benches in dugouts
Hanging safety signage
Hanging Sponsor signage
Hanging backstop netting
Placing trash bins around facilities
Opening the snack shack and bathrooms
Preparing scoreboards
Batting cage netting (if weather allows)
 
Saturday April 1, 9am-11am, we are looking for volunteers to help hang the safety netting from the backstops and the batting cage. The league will have a scissor lift and a couple of volunteers to work from the lift, but is also in need of volunteers to be on the ground to help spread the nets and feed them to the hangers as they navigate around the backstops.
 
Please contact any board member or Town coach to let them know you will be available to help with Field Clean Up Day.  The more volunteers we get, the quicker it will take us to get it done.
 
Majors Coaches, please reach out to your returning families and ask for their help directly to participate in Field Clean Up Day, as these are the families who are most familiar with WBSALL and the field set up at the different locations around town. These returning families know the importance of volunteers to make this league great and a positive experience for our kids. 
Thanks in advance for all your support,  time, and efforts,
Travis Kahoalii
Field Maintenance Director 
and the entire WBSALL Board of Directors

Coaches do not need to make reservations in advance.  Those who attend will be eligible to receive emailed materials from Coach Cronin's System 3 Baseball, his personal approach to coaching team baseball.

Please join Coach Cronin and members of his varsity team for these informative and education sessions on Wednesday, March 22 and/or Friday, March 24.
