Summer Baseball

UpdatedThursday June 25, 2020 byBrendan Flatow.

WRA Baseball is excited to announce that baseball is returning for a modified

Summer Sandlot!

Registration is now open at www.wrasports.org for a fun, flexible and safe opportunity to play baseball with your friends!!  

There is no charge for Sandlot, but donations are encouraged if you were not registered for spring baseball.   If you have a friend, neighbor or a visiting cousin that would like to play, just have them register! 

In the Sandlot format, games will be slightly less formal than the spring season but no less fun.  Games will include great baseball, umpires, memories and friends, but unfortunately without the new uniforms or specific team assignments.  This flexible format was elected to allow families on vacation or involved with other summer activities the ability to choose when they will participate without impacting attendance on a given night.     

It’s easy.  Thursday or each week all registered families will receive a Signup Genius.  Choose which nights your child would like to play based on your availability. Shortly after a coach will email you any specifics for your game, including team assignment.  One week you’re on the blue team with your friend, the next the red team playing against him.    

Games will be played on weeknight starting as soon as next week and run through early August, depending on the interest of our families. 

Tentative Schedule:

  • American and National League games will be Mondays and Wednesday.
  • Minor League game will at least one weekday and possibility Saturday based on response.   

The sooner families register, the sooner we can announce a formal schedule. 

You must be registered in order to be included in the weekly emails. Visit  www.wrasports.org and signup ASAP.

If you have any questions, please email: baseball.wra@gmail.com.

We can’t wait to see you on the field!!

 

Our goal is to provide our athletes an opportunity to be active and engaged in a safe environment.  The WRA has created Return to Play Guidelines and Protocols. These guidelines have been constructed from suggestions from a number of sources, including but not limited to the CDC, the State, the County, local health organizations and our sports’ governing bodies.   The guidelines are inclusive of proper social distancing, no physical contact, regular use of hand sanitizer,  no sharing of equipment, proper cleaning of balls and supplies, no spitting, no sunflower seeds, no high-fives or fist bumps and individual equipment bags will be spaced to avoid clusters.  All coaches and parents will be educated on protocols and expected to follow them in order to be included in any WRA activity.
