2017 SEASON BEGINS
by posted 03/27/2017

To all our Families,
 
We would like to apologize if we seem unorganized this year but these rains affected all our best layed plans. Assessments had to be pushed back one week for our Majors teams and three more weeks for our lower division which then pushed back the team formations for the lower divisions. Then, we also had to deal with a shortage of coaches in the Rookies and then in Machine Pitch divisions.  We also had many late registrations and numerous requests for team placement changes. So, after all that, we are finally playing games. 


Schedule goes live!
This means that reminders and/or game changes/cancelations will be sent to you approximately 24 hours before each game via text and/or email – depending on which method you selected when you registered. If you did not select that option and wish to now receive reminders, you must log into your account and change the settings. Please respond to RSVP messages.
 

Fields:
We ask that you police yourselves with respect to food/drinks. Whether a school site or town park, do not leave candy wrappers, food or drink containers behind when you leave.
 
Kaiser Park:  Parking availability is always an issue so we strongly encourage carpooling when possible. All 5 fields will be in use many nights, but unfortunately, there is not enough parking for all. There is overflow parking at the high school with a pedestrian gate for easy access to park and a small lot tucked back near Field A (large baseball field) on your right as you enter Kaiser. If you park along the wooden fence under the oak tree, be advised that you could be cited by police as it is a No Parking zone.
 
Mattie Washburn: has minimal parking in lot directly outside of fields. There is additional parking at the front of the school with field access through the gate nearest the dog run. 

Parking in the neighborhood is also available but PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL when selecting your parking spot. DO NOT park at street corners as this can block line of sight. But most especially, DO NOT block a driveway. You must allow at least 1 foot of clearance between your bumper and driveway. We have received numerous complaints over the years that included pictures of license plates with threats to contact police. These pictures provide proof that drivers are parking within inches on the curb rise.There is parking at front of school lot with field access through gate located nearest to the dog run.

League Parade – April 8th
This is our unofficial Opening Day event. The day includes pictures, team parade, Home Run Derby, barbecue lunch, activities and ending with our highlight - 12 year old Showcase Classic. Look for more information in the next day or so as we finalize the details.
 
Windsor Day Parade – May 6th
10 am - noon. We expect to be invited to participate again. This is a fun event and the kids get a kick out of walking with their teammates to the cheering crowds. We encourage all teams to come out and show their Town spirit.  Coaches should solicit volunteers to walk with you or in your stead if you cannot make it. Kids do not need to be in full uniform –just their jerseys. No cleats! No games will be scheduled during parade times to allow for full league participation.

Remember that these are our kids playing and that they can hear you. Be respectful to them, your opponent, your Coach and our Umpires.

Thank you.

Memorial Bench
by posted 04/25/2015

 

"This bench was inspired by, and in honor, of two amazing men:  Mark Hopkins and Kevin Mendoza .  They were dads, husbands, friends, coaches and volunteers.  They are what makes Windsor so great. Windsor is a community of families. Our community is special with amazing families with great family values. This bench represents that in appreciation of all volunteers.

So take a moment. Sit on the bench and reflect on a moment in time of what baseball meant to you and remember.

 

 

Little League baseball started by a volunteer with a dream; one man, Carl Stotz.  This man had perseverance. He went to 54 businesses asking for sponsorship before he got one that said, “yes.”  That business said “I will do it for the kids.” Carl also used $40 of his own money to start this dream which doesn’t sound like a lot of money but back in 1939, that was half his monthly income and you know there was a Mom that had to “OK” that decision.  That’s confidence.

Players, take time to thank our volunteers. The Moms and Dads that man the snack shack, the brothers that Umpire games and the Dads that coach.

I would like to thank Maryann Alexander and Board and the Town of Windsor for making this a reality.  It’s important to recognize and celebrate our volunteers because without them none of this would be possible and someday, the baseball players of today will be the volunteers of tomorrow; carrying on baseball traditions and all that it teaches us.  It also brings us together as a community."

The Board of Directors would like to thank all the families who made this possible with their support through our raffle last season. We would also like to thank the Town of Windsor Parks and Recreation Department for their support and assistance to ensure that this bench was ordered, received and installed in time for our Opening Day Parade.
