Just got word from Ron Jantz that there will not be any games on JULY 3rd. 

"I just spoke with the city…there will be no games at Weiss next Tuesday.  Avon Lake Fireworks festivities will begin at 6:30 that night at Weiss with a concert and such so there will be no activity on fields."

Pitching Clinic Sundays 6-7 Weiss Field #5

Below is an excerpt from Ron Jantz from the ALYBF Pony Tail League in regards to a pitching clinic that they are holding. We will use this as our training ground for pitchers. If your child wants to pitch, plan on attending these Sunday night clinics. We will use 15 minutes of our practice for the girl to use those skills and warm up. This will take lots of practice for consistancy. Thanks for your support.

"I would like to invite all of you and any players moving up to the Minors to the pitching and catching instructional workouts we hold on Sunday nights from 6 to 7 pm on Weiss Field #5.  


Soon,  you will start to have your older players pitch (three pitches per batter) in your games.   Before you get to that point I would ivite you to come out ad learn the basics of windmill pitching and how to teach the girls some very simple and effective drills they can practice own with too.

Every Sunday night (except this Sunday) on Weiss #5 from 6 to 7 pm."

Tuesday June 12th Game

*We mentioned an early practice for pitching this week, BUT we will not start til next week. Be at the field at the normal time 6PM.

*New Batting Order and Positions tonight!

*Snack is Cummings.

*We will begin pitching tryouts next week. We will need about 4 girls to effectively pitch in the last 1/2 of the season. With that said, I know that they all need to be taught. So....

*Mrs. Williams will be our pitching coach. We are working out the details as to when we were going to have the extra practice for pitching. These are the names of the pitchers that said they were interested:


Let me know if there is anyone else that I missed.

We had a great HITTING game Thursday. Those girls should all be proud of themselves!

**EMERGENCY MEDICAL FORMS: I am still missing forms. We have had 2 (small injuries) at each game. Technically your child should not be playing without a form, ESPECIALLY if you will not be there. I will need them by Tuesdays game. Thanks for your prompt attention and understanding.

**DON'T FORGET TO CHECK THE SNACK SCHEDULE (prior blog post links are listed below for your reference-it's labeled Snack Schedule)!!

**MONDAY JUNE 4TH 5:45-8:45 Concession Stand Duty @ Wiess: 

One of the things our team is required to do is volunteer to work the concession stand. We have 3 hours on Monday to cover. I split it up into 1 hour increments. I still need volunteers. Please let me know if you will be able to cover 1 hour between 5:45-8:45. Thanks so much!

**INFIELD POSITIONS: If your child is playing an infield position on this rotation, please let me know if she will NOT be at a game. This way I will know for practice who will be filling in for her spot.

**Practice 6pm Tuesdays/Thrusdays
We will be using pre-game time to teach positions and making plays. Please make sure you daughter arrives at practice by 6:00 so we can avoid confusion (especially girls who are playing in the infield for this current rotation).

**THANK YOU to all the parents who helped out! I have received feedback from parents on who can help, but I would like to put a schedule out on who is helping on which days so as to avoid any confusion of who is in the field, coaching a base, pitching, or on the bench. Please let me know if you can help and specific dates that you can't help (it can only be for the next 2 weeks if you are unsure further out).

THANKS again for all your continued support!
