Rain? In May?

Can you believe it’s May 14th and we’re still talking about rain?

Here is what we know so far:
Rain is coming sometime Wednesday afternoon and it looks like it will stay with us through Thursday. We’ll likely have intermittent showers on Friday and into Saturday with rain again on Sunday AND Tuesday!

Playoff games! T-Ball Classic! Challenger Game! Everything is at risk!

We’re trying to plan for all contingencies, but sometimes you have to see what happens. Not only are we trying to schedule our games around the weather, but we also need to consider the field conditions. Although the rain may stop, we need to ensure the fields are safe.

We only ask that everyone be as flexible as possible as we reschedule any games that get rained out. If we need to cancel a game due to weather, we will get that info out as soon as possible. The best way to stay informed about our field conditions is to follow our weather text feed. Just text WGLL95125 to 84483. This is guaranteed to be the fastest way to get information about our fields.

More info to come!

If you are interested in representing Willow Glen Little League in an All Star Tournament, please fill out and return the attached Verification of Availability form. The form details the requirements to participate on a Little League sponsored All Star team.

Filling out and returning the form does not guarantee your child a spot on an All Star team. Rather, this form only indicates that you understand the requirements of being on an All Star team and that your child will be available for all games and practices.

Our expectation is that by filling out and submitting an All Star eligibility form, you are committing your child to attend 100% of the games and practices during the All Star season.

All Star selections will be made during the last week of May and teams will be announced on June 2nd.
Parents will be required to perform additional volunteer duties when WGLL hosts the 11 Year Old All Star Tournament at Bramhall Park.

Please complete the form and email to the appropriate All Star manager shown below:

Please include David Duarte at david@universitymortgage.com when you submit your form.

The deadline to return the completed forms is May 25.

If you missed last night’s Under the Lights game, we have another exciting evening of baseball planned!

We’ll have a DJ, photo booth, Tri Tip BBQ, 50/50 raffle, spirit wear sale, raffle for prizes, and what’s sure to be an exciting game between the Majors Red Sox and Navy teams.

Hyland Family Bikes will be behind the right field fence with a bike repair tent ready to support your basic bike repair needs. Swing by and thank them for their support.

The action starts at 4:30 PM when the AAA Columbia Blue plays AAA Gold in the play-in game.

Our pre-game ceremonies start at 7:00 PM. We will honor our Jenice Condie Volunteer of the Year Award recipient, see the T-Ballers run the bases, and have our ceremonial first pitch.

Hope to see everyone out there tonight!
