2022 B-W Spring Baseball

Greetings Beth - Wood Community :

Our Board of Directors hopes everyone had a wonderful (& safe) Holiday and wants to offer our best wishes for a very Happy & Healthy 2022 !!  2022 will be a special year for Beth – Wood Baseball, as we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary as a League, that was founded by a dedicated group of Dads back in 1972 !!

SO, WHO WANTS TO PLAY SOME BASEBALL !!  Well that time has arrived and we are excited to announce that Beth – Wood Baseball League will be offering on – line Registration for our Spring Baseball programs - Tee Ballers through Majors (for children who will be of baseball age 4 – 12 as of April 30, 2022) …

The Registration period for Beth – Wood ball this Spring begins Wednesday, January 5th and ends Monday, February 14th (after which there will be an automatic late fee of $ 25 assessed to each Registrant accordingly, provided there is room on the Teams to accommodate late Registrants).  Note that ALL Registrations must be submitted no later than Sunday, March 20th so we may ascertain how many Teams we will have this Spring, have time to conduct Player Screenings, assemble Team Rosters and order uniforms, with a target to begin practicing by early April – games will begin a few weeks shortly thereafter during late April and will run thru the second week in June.

2022 Spring League Registration costs are as follows (NOTE :  fees have been increased slightly due to expected cost increases for insurances, baseballs, equipment, umpires, uniforms, etc.) :

 

4’s Tee Ball             $ 140.00

Tee Ball                   $ 150.00

Rookies                   $ 195.00

Minors & Majors    $ 245.00

For your convenience, Parents will be able to register multiple children at a single time and once again this year there will be maximum charged per Family of $375. as long as you register ON OR BEFORE the February 14th deadline (Registration costs only – does NOT include Ad Patron or other donations) …  As our on – line Registration format will not automatically take this discount if the maximum amount of $375 per Family is exceeded, a credit card refund will be issued accordingly.

The 2022 Spring program will be as follows :

4’s Instructional Tee Ball – Professional Coach Bill Asermely and his staff from CORE Training Academy will once again be running this program for us (the children will not only learn the basics of this great game of baseball but more importantly have a lot of fun doing so) – these sessions will be held on Wednesdays starting at 5:45 PM on May 4th and ending on or about June 15th (specific details to follow once confirmed)

5’s / 6’s Tee Ball – Will be played every Wednesday starting at 5:45 PM and on Saturday mornings at 9:00 AM

*7’s / 8’s Rookies

*9’s / 10’s Minors

*11’s / 12’s Majors

*Note that for these 3 Divisions, there will be three (3) scheduled baseball activities each week (either games and / or practices).  Solely depending on our Registration numbers and number of Teams we are able to form in each of these Divisions, Beth - Wood is hopeful we will be able to play inter-League games against each other as we have done in the past.  If not, we could therefore reach out to other local Cal Ripken Leagues (i.e., Oxford, as we did back in 2021) so we could possibly assemble a schedule to play inter- league Spring Ball games with them (further details to follow) –

For Amity Babe Ruth Spring baseball (for Players ages 13 – 15 as of April 30, 2022), there will be a separate Registration (details to follow within the next few weeks in early February) - if you have any questions pertaining to this program, kindly send us an email so we may promptly address them …

Payment is due immediately upon Registration via a CC.  Should refunds be necessary, these will be sent out directly from the League via the CC you used as well (including those who might register late but there are no available roster slots on the Team).  However, note that there will be NO refunds approved once your child has been drafted on a Team and uniforms ordered.

In addition, if you are interested in becoming a Coach for the first time and / or are currently a Coach in our League and wish to continue coaching in 2022, please indicate this desire on the Registration form when you sign up your child(ren) and we will contact you accordingly.  We are always in need of dedicated volunteers to help the children in our program.

FYI, the most current information pertaining to baseball bats that are acceptable for use while playing Cal Ripken (5 – 12) for 2022 can be found by clicking on the link below :

Also note that Beth – Wood Baseball offers scholarships to those who financially cannot afford to register their children due to economic reasons. Beth – Wood has NEVER EVER turned away any child who wants to learn and play this great game of baseball – for additional information and to learn more about this, please contact B – W President Dwight Rowland directly at bethwoodpres72@gmail.com.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions - looking forward to an exciting Spring season coming up and most importantly safely getting our children back on to the fields again to play this great game of baseball.  Thank you for your continued support of Beth - Wood Baseball, especially since we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2022 !!
