We just wanted to send out a reminder about this evening District Game in Carlyle.  All games will be played at the Carlyle City Park which is located behind the swimming pool.  Our game begins this evening at 7:00 pm.


Also, we just wanted to give you all a heads up that there will be a $5.00 cover charge tonight which will buy you a pass for the entire tournament.

Kyle & I would like to send out a huge "THANK YOU!" to everyone for the surprise baby shower last night between games!  The gifts were all absolutely adorable and we can't wait for Baby Wehrle to arrive to put them all to good use.

All the love & support throughout the season has been so meaningful and we could not ask for a better group of players & parents to spend this special time in our lives with!

Thanks again!

Kyle, Sarah, & Baby Wehrle

Concession Stand Work Lists

Hello All!

Just tying up a few loose strings before the season begins and wanted to let you all know that I have posted the Regular Season Concession Stand List, as well as the Wooden Bat Tournament Concession Stand List in the left hand column of the webpage under Concession Stand Work Lists.  The lists have been saved as PDFs for you to print out ... so you will always know when you are scheduled to work.  Also, please note that some of you may not have signed up at the first intial meeting of the year therefore you were assigned days/times to work.  If you are not able to work your assigned time(s) then it is YOUR responsibility to find a replacement and/or switch with another parent.

In the concession stand this year you will find a cork board and white board right inside the doorway.  The cork board will have our game schedule, work schedules, as well as any other notes or notices.  The white board will be used to leave notes, as well as make a list as things begin to run low or run out - this list will be used by those of us who run to Sam's to restock the goods.
