2014 IMPORTANT UPCOMING EVENTS

The league has assessments for all divisions except T-Ball. Assessment dates are Saturday March 22nd @ Litchfield Middle School (LMS), which is a change from the original date. Players should wear sneakers and bring their baseball glove; bats are not required.  We request that all players attend assessments, but understand that some families will have scheduling conflicts. Please let us know if you are not able to attend.  Regardless, all players WILL still have a team assignment. There will also be a parents meeting held during the assessments; please plan on attending.

We will run the following schedule:

• MAJORS starting @ 9 AM
• MINORS starting @ 10 AM
• ROOKIE starting @ 11 AM

We will also have the “PLAY-IT-FORWARD” table setup. This is a place for parents to exchange lightly used baseball equipment that will no longer be used by their child. PLEASE bring lightly used baseball pants, gloves, bats, etc. that are still in good shape for donation to the PLAY-IT-FORWARD table. Contact Russ Pelham with any questions. Email: Russ@PelhamFamily.com Cell: (617) 999-5387(617) 999-5387.
