Too much rain this week so we are delaying our opening games and on-field practices this weekend. We hope to get the Majors season started next week at Osage. We will update field conditions through our website and email as usual. The Town updates field availability daily through their hotline 925-314-3484. Here are a few other updates for everyone as we get going.
Future A's Sponsorship
We are lucky to have so many loyal, local sponsors supporting our league. This year, we are also taking advantage of a sponsorship from the Oakland Athletics, who hope to forge stronger connections with Easy Bay youth baseball leagues. Through the sponsorship, the A's are providing uniforms for all players AA and younger. From throwbacks to current day styles, our teams will wear different versions of A's and hats. The A's will also host events with us at Osage Park this spring and our players will have some on-field opportunities at the Coliseum. The expenses we are saving at the league level from this sponsorship are going directly into snack shack improvements and player development.
Team rosters will be published on Thursday 3/14. Practices and games will start soon after.
Friday Night Clinics
One of the wrinkles we started last year and plan to continue again this year is a series of in-season training for players who want to develop their skills beyond their team practices. Sessions will be organized by age group at Osage on Fridays after spring break. More information to come on that.
MLB Pitch, Hit & Run Competition
We will again host an MLB-sponsored competition at Osage on the afternoon of the carnival. Information and registration here. For girls interested in the softball competition, SRVGAL is hosting a similar event on Sunday 4/14 at Monte Vista HS.
