2019 PLAYER EVALUATIONS
Player evaluations for the BASEBALL BOYS MAJORS DIVISION - AGES 9 thru 12 - will be held this Saturday, March 23rd, at noon. No other division needs to attend. The boys should bring their equipment.
The purpose is to gauge the talent level of the players and aide the coaches in drafting teams that have a balance of talent across the division. Majors coaches and assistant coaches are expected to attend and help the players as they move from station to station.
Parents who wish to be more involved should be sure to introduce themselves to any of the board members. Like all youth sports, this is a volunteer organization and we always need more parental involvement!
LOCATION: Stella Maiese Park, 255 Blue Anchor Road in Sicklerville
See ya Saturday!

The following link will take you to an intriguing article from the September 4th edition of Time Magazine. Much of the information you will see in this article you may have heard from many of the WTLL Board members. The biggest difference here is that the author, Sean Gregory, has the actual figures that confirm our assertions.
While there is certainly a place for "travel ball," there's no question that too many of the participants are involved because of unrealistic talent perceptions or, even more regrettably, for the status they believe is bestowed upon them.
Regardless of your feelings about the industry that has become youth sports, it's a great read.
Each year, a new group of parents joins the Little League® family, as their children get set to begin their baseball or softball journey, making new friends, and having fun along the way. And, just like players need a year or two of Tee Ball or Coach Pitch to learn the game, finding a way for parents to be introduced to volunteering is just as important. For those new Little League families, we encourage you to get involved in your local league as soon as possible because it is important to start learning how your league operates at the very beginning of your Little League involvement. Being updated and in-the-know are keys in developing a positive Little League experience for you and your Little Leaguer®.
The best way to get involved is to volunteer. Little League relies on the hundreds of thousands of Little League volunteers throughout the world to offer the opportunity for children and families to forge lifelong memories, and have positive experiences both on-and-off the field. Every local league needs committed volunteers. If your son or daughter began playing Little League last year, or your Little Leaguer is about to start next season, we encourage you to learn what volunteer positions are needed in your league. Volunteers often help with concession stand duties, field maintenance, fundraising, event planning, communications, and coaching.
