The Whitehall Little League team will be holding a fundraiser on May 25th, and is looking to put together a team together from the GVMABL to play in that fundraiser. We do not have games that weekend. They are looking for 12 guys to commit to playing in the event. A game time hasn’t been set, but they are thinking roughly 4:00pm. There is going to be a BBQ and other games and events to help promote getting younger games involved in playing baseball. If you would like to play and want to help promote the game of baseball for our youth, please contact Josh Lyons at either email@example.com or (406) 565-1825.
The 2013 Schedule has been posted to the League site. To view the schedule go to http://montanahardball.mtbaseball.org/leagues/2….
This year we will be trying a different format for the 2013 season. With an overwhelming 88% of the votes for the poll on the format season, the majority of people selected to leave the schedule as is and with this format.
*Note, I’m still waiting to her back on Heroes Field and until then all games schedule at Heroes field may have to moved or rescheduled. If that is the case I’ll try and get updated as soon as possible.
This year we will be accepting Credit Card payments through Square. If you would prefer to pay with a Credit/Debt Card. I will have a square account and will be able to take these forums of payments. The payment system will be completely open to what you as a player are going to be able to pay at that time. If you have any questions around this please let Jeremy know @ firstname.lastname@example.org. As always we will still accept Cash and/or checks as forms of payments for this coming season.
This year we are looking at structuring the 2013 schedule a little differently. Over the past couple of years there has been several request to how the league builds the season schedule a few of those requests have been….
- Shorten the season by a couple weeks as to allow for people who are leaving for college attend the playoffs
- Get more weekends off during the season to allow for activities outside of baseball
- Double headers to be played against the same team
- Weekday games under the lights
- Have less weekends where one team plays 3 or more times in a weekend
- Allow for players/teams that have to travel for less travel days (ie only play on Sat. or Sun. vs both) We now have several players from Billings traveling to our area to play baseball. This is great for expanding the league but requires a long travel for these players and is tough to do on both Sat and Sun. This applies to players from Livingston as well.
- less 9:00am games
To accommodate this we are looking at structure the schedule one of 3 ways and would like your input on which one to pick
Option 1. Double Headers
One team for a given weekend will have the weekend off. (Each team will have a total of 2 weekends off, not including holiday weekends) The 4 other teams will play a double header against the same team either on Saturday or Sunday. The coaches can decide on two 9 innings games, one 9 and one 7, or two 7inning games.
Option 2. One Game a day
One team for a given weekend will have the weekend off. (Each team will have a total of 2 weekends off, not including holiday weekends) The 4 other teams will play each day Sat and Sun against the same team.
Option 3. 1/2 and 1/2
For the month of June we will do one game a day and for July/August we’ll do double headers (July/August is the same # of weekends as June)
