Hi Team Orioles,
My name is Vanessa Traniello (Westley's mom) and I will be your volunteer coach along with Joe Hill for the 2021 Spring Season. We are looking forward to having fun with all the kids on the field!
First Practice will be Tuesday, April 27 at 4:30 at Woodman Park
We'll kick off our first week of practice with 2 thirty minute sessions and then move to 1 sixty minute session per week in May. Please have your player wear comfortable clothes and bring water, a mask and glove.
- Tuesday April 27 from 4:30 - 5 PM
- Thursday April 28 from 4:30 - 5 PM
Games are on Sundays in May at Woodman Park
- Start times will be 11:30, 1:30, 3:30 and 5:30 PM. This gives time to spread out the crowds.
- Teams will play 3 innings (everyone hits each inning)
- Please try and arrive at games 15 minutes before game time so we have time for a team meeting and warm-up. If a child will not be at a game, please notify me.
Equipment and Apparel: The league provides each player with a shirt which should arrive end of April. Please make sure your player is dressed comfortably. Baseball pants or sweat pants for bottoms. For shoes, rubber cleats (baseball or soccer cleats) or sneakers. If you desire to bring your own helmet or bat please label them.
Note: Dicks Sporting Goods in Seabrook has a T-Ball package.
Safety: Baseball can be a dangerous game if safety rules are not followed. We will be diligent in making sure no one puts another player at risk. This means no throwing balls or picking up bats at any time, unless one of the coaches or I say it is OK. We will be very strict about this.
Expectations: The emphasis in this division is not on winning, but on player development and having fun. With that said, all players will play all positions and bat in various positions in the lineup. The one request we have of you is to remember that these kids are still very young, with short attention spans - come with low expectations and plan to laugh a lot!
Our primary goal this season is to make sure every player wants to come back and play again next year.
