|Little League Pledge
I trust in God
I love my country
And will respect its laws
I will play fair
And strive to win
But win or lose
I will always do my best
I will teach all children to play fair and do their best.
I will positively support all managers, coaches and players.
I will respect the decisions of the umpires.
I will praise a good effort despite the outcome of the game.
Where: Willards Little League Field 1
When: Sunday, April 9th, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Who: Anyone interested in helping! If you have sat on the bleachers year after year, make this season the one where you get involved. Umpiring can be very rewarding and often sets a positive example to those around you.
There’s absolutely no obligation implied by your attendance. So, there’s no excuse for you not to come on out, ask questions, laugh at stories and learn from others that have umpired in the past.
Refreshments will be provided.

Despite very wet conditions on Saturday morning, volunteers were out in full force getting the park ready for opening day. We began hanging banners from our league sponsors on several fields. In addition, the temporary fence and foul poles were installed on field 4. Finally, 7 tons of stone were shoveled, hauled and spread on the warning track of field 1. Thank you to all that helped (and to all of the players that are also showing pride in their park)!
If you have free time this week, please lend a hand! There’s a lot to still be done and we’re less than 1 week away. Simply show up at the park and locate any board member for direction as to how you can help.
A HUGE Thank You to the Tull Brothers for supplying and donating the materials and Jay Brittingham for building our new Tee Ball dugout roofs. In the past, we tried to keep our players protected from the sun by installing mesh covers secured by zip ties. As you can imagine, this solution wasn’t the greatest and involved making repairs every time the wind blew hard. These new dugout covers should provide plenty of shade and protection for our little players for years to come. Thanks again!
Need new cleats this season? Ready to make an upgrade to a nicer glove? Here’s a few coupons that should help at the register.

Your field maintenance crew was hard at work today!
