Westwood Little League: Welcome

Westwood Little League

Westwood Little League is a volunteer run, non-profit corporation that has been serving the community for over 60 years. Each year we operate a Baseball and Softball youth sports program for over 400 children. We do this through the generous support of our sponsors and tireless efforts of our volunteers. If you are new to Westwood Little League, “Welcome to our family”; if you are an old friend, “Welcome back”.

Help Needed for Little Major Special Games

Westwood is a host site for the Little Majors Baseball Special Games tournament on June 4-5.  As a host, we need to provide scorekeepers for the games.  We also need people to staff concessions so we can raise more funds for the league.  Hosting Special Games is a way we can give back to the larger Little League community in Kalamazoo as there will be teams from many of the leagues in District 2 participating.

Please use the Sign Up Genius to take a time slot to help.

Twas the Night Before Opening Day

We are just a few hours from the start of the season! And tomorrow looks like a great day to play!Just a couple of last minute reminders.

- The parade starts at 8:00 so please be at the Fire Station by 7:30 if you have a vehicle to transport a team, or by 7:45 at the latest. No candy can be thrown to parade watchers!

- If you are towing something for the parade, we ask that you drop your riders and move your vehicle to the Indian Prairie parking lot.

- Bring non-perishable food items for the District 2 Food Drive in memory of Larry MacPhee. Let's try to win the award for most pounds per player.

- If you did not get your uniform this evening, you will be able to get it from your coach or team parent tomorrow morning.

- The parking lot at the fields will be very crowded in the morning. We will try to have it marked, but pull into the grass on the west side of the lot and fit two rows of vehicles in the middle. Leave an aisle at the south end to be able to drive around and head back toward the entrance. Be courteous and drive slowly.

All the schedules are posted (finally).  Thank you for your patience as we worked our way through this process.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

A few dates that were previously announced have had to be changed.
