It is time to start getting ready for Fall Ball! With the addition of our new facilities at MCP, we have decided to make changes to our traditional Fall Ball schedule.
Our program this year will differ from years past; we will not be playing at PAL. We will be playing with a few of our local communities to include Norwin, Trafford Level Green and potentially Penn Trafford and Monroeville.
Scheduled games will start the first Saturday after Labor Day and run for 6 weeks. We will alternate playing sites each weekend, and Fall Ball will act like mini baseball tournaments. All games for all divisions will be played on Saturdays and Wednesdays and practice will be held throughout the week. Each team will potentially play a double header every Saturday.
Registration will be through the website only and will be ready by Friday, August 1st and will close on August 18th. There will be a late fee of $20.00 for registration after that date.
Regarding signups, if your child played their second year of a division (Shetland, Pinto, Mustang, etc.), then they will move up to the next division. Please note that ages and grade levels apply to each division.
For example: Johnny played his second year of coach pitch (Pinto) in the spring, for the fall he will move up and play kid pitch (Mustang).
Johnny just started baseball, but he is going into first grade next year. For fall he will move up to Coach pitch (Pinto).
This year's Fall ball commissioner is Dave Leven. He will be in charge of participating teams and setting the schedule. He can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Uniforms will be simplified to a silk screened T-Shirt and a matching ball cap.
2015 COOPERSTOWN TEAM TRYOUTS
We will be holding tryouts this Thursday 9-18 at 6:00 PM at MCP field 4-3 for the open roster positions on the 2015 Cooperstown Team. If you are going to be entering your second year in the Bronco league next season you are eligible to come and tryout for a spot on the team. Please plan on arriving by 5:45 PM in your inhouse uniform to get signed in and ready to start promptly at 6 pm. Prior to the tryout beginning we will have a discussion with the parents regarding the Cooperstown experience. We want to make sure that everyone has a clear understanding of the commitment to this team and the work that will be involved over the next 10 months to make this an experience that the boys will remember for the rest of their lives. We will have a parent at the tryout that attended Cooperstown this past summer and can answer questions and give you a perspective on the time and financial commitment needed for this team. We will provide as much information as possible and answer questions so that it will help you in making your decision to join the team if you are offered a spot on the roster.
If after the evening of the tryout there are additional questions please feel free to give me a call at 724-312-6400 and I’d be happy to discuss with you.
