Just 2 weeks left to register for West Hanover Fall Baseball!!! Please mail your registration forms in soon.

Boys ages 7-14 (as of 4/30/2014) can register to play Fall baseball at West Hanover for the upcoming season.  Registrations will be accepted through July 31st.  Please complete the attached form and mail the completed form along with the registration fee to either Brian Shafer (7-11 year olds) or Brett Stehr (12-14 year olds).  This is a great opportunity for the boys who will be moving up to the next level of baseball next spring as well as those who just didn't get enough baseball this past Spring!  Practices will probably start towards the end of August with games beginning in early September.  Last year all of the games for the 7-12 year old teams were scheduled on Saturdays in the late morning or early afternoon.

Please note that boys who are going into 7th grade and will not be 13 by 4/30/2015 (next year) have the option to move up to Teeners in the Spring instead of playing another season of majors.  If your son meets this criteria and you are considering making this move next Spring then I highly recommend that your son play Fall baseball on the 12-year old Teener team this Fall.  This will give him the opportunity to get use to the larger field with 75 foot bases (15 feet farther than in Midgets) and a 54 foot pitching mound (8 feet farther than in Midgets).  Leading off and stealing are key elements at the Teener level that will be taught during the Fall season.  If you have any questions about Teeners, please contact Brett Stehr (bnbbstehr@verizon.net or 651-9362).

2nd Annual CD Baseball Diamondbackers Golf Tournament

April 10, 2014                                                      


Dear Central Dauphin Rams Baseball Supporter:


Without the support that the Rams Baseball Diamondbackers Club receives from the community, our Baseball Program would not be able to continue to grow, so “THANK YOU” for your continued support.


We would like to announce the 2nd Annual Diamondbackers Golf Tournament. We would like to build on the success that we had last year with our first outing. This will be a great opportunity to celebrate the 2014 baseball season and start the building for the 2015 teams at Central Dauphin.


The 2014 Central Dauphin Baseball Diamondbackers Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, July 25th, 2014, at Manada Hill Golf Course outside of Grantville.  We would like to personally invite you to be a sponsor, play golf or donate a prize.


We have two levels of sponsorship; Green and White.  As a Green sponsor, your business ad (1/2 page) will appear in the Rams’ home game program, and you will receive a hole sponsorship placard for the tournament.  White sponsors will receive a hole sponsorship placard for the tournament.  Prize donations will also be appreciated.  All sponsors and prize donations will be acknowledged in a special section of the baseball program.


The tournament will begin with registration starting at 7:00 am and an 8:00 am Shotgun Start.  An awards ceremony and luncheon will take place immediately following play.


The enclosed information provides details for sponsorship, donation of prizes, and golfing in the tournament.  We hope you will consider supporting the Central Dauphin Rams Baseball program this year by participating in the 2014 Diamondbackers Golf Tournament. 


Your participation helps us to continue to build a winning and successful baseball program at Central Dauphin High School.  With your continued support, we are certain great things are in store for the 2014 season and in the years to come.
