Girls Weeknight Fastpitch League
September 11 to November 3

We are now taking sign ups for our Fallball Weeknight League
Games will be played on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings, depending upon sign ups.  
The concept of this league is to give Travel teams an opportunity have  "Friendly Games" with live pitching, in order to prepare for Weekend Tournaments.  With Travelball budgets going
through the ceiling, we also want to provide quality games at a reasonable cost.  Our format is patterned after our previous girls fastpitch leagues for travel teams and will include the following:

Practice Games - No Standings, Playoffs or awards will be given.  Coaches don't have to play with a "Win at all cost" attitude, thereby giving all of their pitchers mound time and to put players at different positions.  The whole point is to get your team "Better for Tournaments".

School Comes First
- teams are not pressured to have all of their players present when a player might have a heavy homework load or a project due.  Aiming for a college baseball scholarship?  Three very important words - Grades, Grades, Grades.

Game Times at 6:15 and 7:45
- this means the length of the games will be 1 hour and 20 minutes, drop dead.  There are a few reasons for this: first, it is difficult for parents to get off work , pick up their kids and be at the park to warm up for a 6:15 game.  On the back side, we are playing on school nights and we want games done and teams packed up by around 9:00PM.  Many people still won't make it home until 10:00PM.  So games times will be crucial.  We must start the second game at 7:45 in order to be done around 9:00PM.

Single Umpire System - in order to keep costs down, we will use a 1 umpire system.  Remember that these are practice games so let's save your team's $$ for tournaments.  We are looking for new umpires so we also hope to pair a "newbie" up with an experienced umpire for training purposes when we can.  We can't put newbies on the field during tournaments with no experience.  The cost of umpires will be included in your League Entry Fee.

Freedom Park General Rules - Freedom Park General Rules pertaining to outside food/ drinks, parking, pets, etc. will apply to league nights.  We will not be charging a gate fee for league.  The Freedom Park Snack Bar will be open with a full grill of many options for food.
