 2020 Season Preview

It will be back to the field for year 14 and another trip back in time as we continue our "retro", wood bats only format.

The 15 & under Majors will make our first ever trip into the 1920's with teams like:
Chicago Cubs, New York Giants, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates,
Washington Senators, St. Louis Browns, Philadelphia Athletics, and
Detroit Tigers

The 19 & under Seniors will feature teams from the 1970's like:
Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, Cleveland Indians,
Montreal Expos, Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Cardinals, and San Diego Padres

The 18 & over Sunset league will visit the 1960's and field:
Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, and Houston Colt .45s

Included will be more custom uniforms depicting the teams of the eras including some sleevele
ss, a pinstripe uniform, and maybe even a solid yellow or even a solid red head-to-toe uniform set.

We will  again play the schedule at the Barnhouse and Optimist fields starting with a draft of new teams in early April with a practice schedule up to the start of the season in mid-May.  Teams will play 18 to 20 games and play until the end of July.

Opening Ceremonies will again feature guest MLB players and we will continue our honorary commissioner program with families of some of the great Hall of Fame players of the 1920's.  

Mid Season it will be another dose of our annual hitting contest "Power Derby" plus the Derby Cup tourney as the Senior/Sunset coaches (ahem) try to defend their 2019 crown.

Registration info will mail out to returning players around the first of the year and updates will be posted on the website all winter and spring.
