Commissioner's Notes



Good evening, Waxhaw Baseball Families,

I'm just adding on too the previous emails regarding Fall registration below in case you missed the previous emails.

Right now we are off to a solid start with registration. We are also getting closer to having 100% approval from the Town and UCPS to hold games and Nesbit/Kensington/Waxhaw Elem, even if we are under Phase 2 protocol.

Coaches, please do sign up as soon as possible so your league commissioners can start to form teams (trying to keep teams together as best as possible from the Spring). Our goal is to have teams formed by 8/23 (with evals that weekend), practices starting week of 8/24, and games starting Sept 12th or the week of Sept 14th.

Once we get confirmation we can have a fall season as planned we will then start to invoice our families for payment. There will be a price for returning players (reduced from the Spring), and a price for new players who will need a uniform.

Any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me or your division commissioners.

Thanks!

John Osterberg

Good evening, Waxhaw Baseball Families again,

Quick update with some FAQs regarding Fall Rec Baseball Registration and status:

- You can stay in the division your child was supposed to play this past Spring even if they've aged up to the next division. For example, if your child was to play 6U Coach Pitch TBall, yet turned 7 and usually would move up to Intermediate Machine Pitch, you can still sign them up for 6U this Fall since we didn't have a Spring season.
- Rec registration ends Aug 21st at 9pm. We will look to hold evaluations for players new to the league or players looking for a new experience (Machine Pitch and older). Coaches and teams will be formed and our goal is to start organized practices the week of August 24th. We are hopeful we can start games the Saturday after Labor Day.

More to come. Keep the questions coming if you have them. Go Waxhaw!

 

July 27, 2020

Good evening, Waxhaw Baseball Families,

Hope you and your families are healthy and staying safe during this heat wave! I also apologize in advance for this rather lengthy email being sent possibly multiple times to your inbox but I am sending this out to registrations from the past few seasons to get the word out.

We have Fall Rec Baseball registration up on the website for TBall through Majors! Babe Ruth is still playing their Spring/Summer season, and our Challenge/Travel teams are still working on what their Fall season will look like (some of these teams got started late and may elect to stay together for the Fall unless they need to add a player or two).

When you go to register your player, you'll notice that there is an option to register to be on a "Wait List". This was the only option for us to have everyone register without having to pay a registration fee at this time, no charge nor commitment just yet. With the uncertainty still, although we are very hopeful we have a Fall Rec season (with strict safety protocols in place), we wanted to wait to charge a registration fee until we were confident the Fall season will happen. You still through the normal registration process and check out your player for the Fall Rec season. There will be a $0 balance for now but eventually we will send an invoice (which will include a credit from Spring if you elected that choice). 

There will be no Work Bond fee in the Fall even though that acknowledgement is still on there. We still have a number of families that were not given the opportunity to earn it back in the Spring. Please be on the lookout for some volunteer opportunities in coming weeks to get our fields ready for Fall Baseball.

As far as what the registration fees will be for each division, our Baseball Committee is still discussing multiple options. Registration fees in the Fall are typically lower than the Spring due to a few less games, but if we are able to use the unused uniforms from the Spring, and keep teams from Spring mostly together (with some adjustments that will be needed such as combining teams), there could be a significant drop in the registration fee from what we charged in the Spring (along with the credit if you chose that path). More to come on this.

Quick update on fields and practice/games status. We were able to get our UCPS field reopened today (took some work but we got them to allow us to use these fields despite schools still closed). This opens up the opportunity for practices on the Kensington and Waxhaw Elem fields (with Phase 2 rules still in place and safety protocols). Phase 3 is scheduled right now to go into place August 8th or so, which will allow us to have organized games while following updated safety protocols, which will still probably include social distancing and masks outside the fields, no dugouts except for a few players and coaches, but spectators will be allowed up to some maximum number. Our Challenge/Travel teams have been playing tournaments at other facilities and they seem to be going pretty smoothly as far as following the Phase 2 rules, so I am confident once Phase 3 comes we will be able to follow those rules and have games. As I've mentioned before, the reason other organizations and field complexes can hold games and tournaments is because they are mostly privately owned and run. Our fields are subject to the rules from the Town of Waxhaw and UCPS, who are being very cautious about returning back to us playing ball on their fields and rightfully so for their protection.

If you have any questions on a specific division or any other questions, here is our current Baseball Committee and their contact info (this is on the website):

Rookie: Greg Pennisi  [email protected]

I am looking forward to seeing our ballplayers out at the fields soon, especially with all the improvements we've made this year - Concessions, Real Bathrooms, Kensington Rookies field which looks like a stadium, and most importantly SIDEWALKS at Nesbit baseball fields! 

Again, apologize for the long email and possibly multiple emails. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me or anyone on our Baseball Committee with any questions and let's start getting registered for some Fall Baseball at Waxhaw!

Hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, and surviving this heat!

Couple of quick updates as we really don't have much new happening other than Fall Registration coming up.

Hopefully by next weekend we'll be live with sign-up online for Fall Rec Baseball Registration. Different for this Fall will be that we will not collect any payments up front (in case there is no Fall Season). If we get the green light to have a Fall Rec season then we will invoice you then for registration. In addition, we're figuring out the best way to apply the Spring baseball credit if you chose that option for your child, even without collecting payment it will hopefully be reflected in your account profile when you go through registration. More on this hopefully later this week.

We are still waiting for UCPS to allow us to use the Kensington and Waxhaw Elementary fields (which are 6 of our 10 fields we utilize). The High School fields opened this past Monday, Middle School fields were supposed to open up tomorrow but I believe have been pushed back to July 27th, which was the day they told me Elementary school fields were going to open (will probably be delayed as they're opening up the school fields in phases). So, until we have access to those fields we cannot come up with a date when our Fall Rec season will actually start and teams formed. 

There are a few scenarios our Baseball Board is actively discussing, including keeping teams mainly in-tact from the Spring draft with their coaches, adding new players to teams that are short and/or combining teams that are short. This would greatly reduce the registration fees as we can use the unused uniforms from the Spring and only have to order for new players. This is one of many options we're discussing but as of now everything is up in the air until we get access to those fields as well as move to Phase 3 by our governor, which will allow more individuals to be at the fields and will allow us to actually have rec games. 

I will pass along any information as I receive it and keep you updated on Fall Registration when we go live.

Lastly, our Babe Ruth and Adult Softball teams have started playing games at Nesbit (with safety guidelines being kept), along with our Travel/Challenge teams able to practice only. I do want to reiterate that the Town Parks and Rec Director approved our safety plan and steps to get back on the fields. Please do make sure that you are following the Covid-19 safety guidelines when sending your child down to our fields. If they show any of the signs of the virus, please do not send them down to play. Please act on the side of caution here as the Town is following what we do especially in these early weeks back. If we do end up having a child or coach that has the virus, and was at the fields, please do alert me or his coach so that we can take the follow up safety protocols needed. Thank you!

Waxhaw Baseball Families,

Hope everyone is staying safe and doing well during these unprecedented times. I wanted to send a quick follow up to our WAA Board and Treasurer's email tonight. 

As I'm sure everyone has seen by now Phase 2 will be up and running this weekend as dictated by our Governor. Unfortunately, Phase 3 has been pushed off until the end of June and the number of people allowed at "gatherings" is 25, less than the 50 we were hoping for. That said, we're in talks with the Town, who are in talks with the State to see what that means pertaining to organized youth sports. I am hopeful to have more clarity in the next few days or over the next week. There is a chance we will still be able to be on the fields in some organized capacity soon, our season isn't finished just yet, nor is softball's. Soccer is the only Spring sport that has been officially canceled.

I did want to bring up a request and a comment tonight to all of our baseball families. First of all, thank you for the very few emails we have received as an organization demanding refunds or other demands. I know most of our families know that we are all volunteers on the Baseball Committee and the WAA Board and are trying our best to be transparent and also to communicate information as we get it. We are still hopeful to get some sort of baseball (rec/challenge/travel) going this summer and are waiting for the Town to give us more clarity in coming days. 

My request is to please refrain from spreading rumors and/or fueling the fire that is starting to happen on social media. Fortunately our Waxhaw Baseball families have mostly been silent on these platforms waiting for our official decisions, but other local organizations and even other sports within Waxhaw Athletics have not, unfortunately, and in some cases terrible lies and threats are being made. 

I want to assure you that our Waxhaw Baseball Committee and the WAA Board are actively working on a decision and there are a lot of factors that will lead to our decisions should we have a canceled season - uniforms, field maintenance (yes, we need to maintain the fields even though they're closed), insurance, registration fees already paid, etc... We are a non-profit organization, we budget our registration to pay for the season and then we budget our next registration to pay for the next season. Nobody on the Baseball Committee nor the WAA Board are paid, we are volunteers and try our best to keep the league going. 

My last sentence about keeping the league going is important when we finally come up with what will most likely be a credit towards a future season for those who cannot play this spring/summer season, if there is one. You have my promise we will be transparent with our finances (we are a non-profit so that will be public information). 

My biggest request right now is we appreciate your patience, we appreciate your loyalty to Waxhaw Baseball, and we appreciate sending me directly your concerns and to not post to social media (Facebook, NextDoor, etc...) as that does nothing good for the culture we are trying to build here at Waxhaw Athletics nor the ongoing viability for us to continue as an organization financially. 

Have a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
John Osterberg
Waxhaw Baseball Commissioner

Good afternoon, Waxhaw Baseball Families,

This is not an email I want to send but need to. There will be a more official announcement, but in conjunction with what precautions other athletic organizations are taking, we are suspending all baseball operations until further notice. 

This unfortunately means no practices, games, probably Opening Day activities and even the beginning of the season.

I hope everyone understands the importance for this. Again, a more official announcement will be coming but I wanted to pass this along, especially for our players who have practices this evening.

Stay safe, will pass along information as it becomes available to me.
__________________________________________________________________
Good evening, Waxhaw Families,

Three words tonight to all of our fantastic volunteers today - Wow! Thank You!

We had a total of 48 volunteers (including multiple family members and youth volunteers) today between the 2 shifts totaling over 176 volunteer hours. For our Youth Volunteers, please let me know if there is a signature needed for any volunteer hours you need to fulfill, would be glad to sign whatever is needed to verify these hours for you.

There were plenty of rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, and work gloves clearing out all the debris from the flood 2 weeks ago. We were also very fortunate to have a volunteer industrial power wash machine cleaning out our sheds and equipment, as well as Sam's construction backhoe (or whatever that big yellow machine was) moving dirt back onto Nesbit 4. I'm sure I'm leaving out some other very important volunteer items , but what a great day for Waxhaw Baseball teamwork! The parks and fields look nothing like they did yesterday from the flood.

I've reimbursed those who volunteered their work bond fee tonight. Please let me know if you do not see it by the end of the week to the card on file.

Please be on the lookout for the next work bond day (perhaps even as soon as next week). Still a lot more work to do. 

Right now our target day is 3/21 for Opening Day Ceremonies. This will give us a solid month of practices before we get games started (to also account what appears to be a rainy cycle we're in). It will also buy us time to really get our fields in the best shape they can be (especially Nesbit 4) before we start up games. More to come...

Waxhaw Baseball Commissioner

Good evening, Waxhaw Families,

Although registration has closed as of last Friday for most of our divisions, our Intermediate Machine Pitch Rookies division is still looking for a few more players to complete our 6 teams. 

Intermediate Machine Pitch Rookies is our division for players moving up from Coach Pitch 6U TBall, or newer players ages 7-8 to baseball who may have never hit off the machine before. We split up our Machine Pitch Rookies division this season to Intermediate and Advanced, with Advanced being for our experienced machine pitch players getting ready to next season move up to kid pitch Minors.

If you know of a family member, sibling of your child, friend, neighbor, classmate, who may want to play this season, I am keeping the registration for IMP open through Thursday night. 

Any questions please do not hesitate to reach out. Let's do our anti-rain dance also this week so we may get out on the fields soon!

John Osterberg
Waxhaw Baseball Commissioner

Dear Babe Ruth families,

For those of you interested in Babe Ruth League (13U-18U), the Babe Ruth season is a bit different from the Cal Ripken season. Here are a few things to be aware of...

Registration for Babe Ruth will be open until February 29. Practices will start in March, and games in May. 

We generally start with all players in the same division practicing together, and separate in to teams in mid- or late-March.

We're looking forward to a great season with you. If you have questions, you can contact our Babe Ruth commissioners...

13U - Mike Clemente ([email protected])
15U - Corey Wenger ([email protected])
18U - Jeff Mead ([email protected])

Waxhaw Baseball Families,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday Season! That said, time flies and we are about a week or two away from opening up registration for Spring Baseball and I wanted to pass along some important information as we head into the new season. I apologize in advance for the long email (and also apologize that some of you may receive more than one email since I am also sending this to last Spring’s Waxhaw Baseball families).

Many of you know me from coaching and being a TBall/Rookies/Minors Division Commissioner over the years. Recently the Waxhaw Athletic Association Board has nominated me to be our next Waxhaw Baseball Commissioner/President to replace JD Detwiler effective this Spring 2020 Season. I want to personally thank the board and JD for the nomination and have accepted the position. I also want to thank JD Detwiler as well as his predecessor Michael Clemente in developing Waxhaw Baseball to be the tremendous program we have today. They will still be helping out when able to and this help will be much appreciated as I anticipate record enrollment again this Spring.

Here are some important items to pass along (again, apologize for the long letter but there is a lot to get through before Spring season begins). 

Field Improvements:

-    The 2 baseball fields (Kensington Rear/Large and Kensington Front/Small) nearest the elementary school at Nesbit should be baseball game ready for the Spring season. Backstops, fencing, dugouts, and stands should all be in place as well as base anchors and improved field conditions. This will allow our TBall and Rookies divisions to have additional field space for games and practices. There is also a new batting cage at those fields for use by our teams.

-    We should have installed an additional batting cage next to the 3rd base line on field 1 at Nesbit by the start of the season, which will allow our teams playing and practicing on field 4 primarily and also on field 1 to utilize.

-    The new concession stand and bathrooms at Nesbit will hopefully be up and running by the start of the season.

-    We are also in the process of building a permanent shed behind the new concession stand to replace the 2 rotting sheds currently in the cul-de-sac at Nesbit.

-    We know there are more things to be improved at the fields, including pathways to all the baseball fields from the street, permanent lights at fields 2 and 3 at Nesbit and perhaps at Waxhaw Elementary, parking issues at Nesbit, etc… but with record enrollment possible this Spring our priority was to get more fields game ready.

-    A new Work Day Bond will be introduced to the league (more on this later) that will help Sam LeNoble and Jeff Zobel, our hard working Fields Commissioners getting the fields ready for the Spring and during the season.

Baseball Divisions:

-    5U TBall, 6U Coach Pitch, Minors (9-10 yr olds), Majors (11-12 yr olds), and Babe Ruth (13U, 15U, 18U) remain the same format.

-    There will be a big change at our Rookies division this Spring and going forward. Our Rookies machine pitch division will be split into two divisions - Intermediate Machine Pitch (IMP) Rookies and Advanced Machine Pitch (AMP) Rookies. This idea has been stolen from other baseball leagues at this age group and the logic behind it is a new player to baseball or just up from TBall is at a big disadvantage to a player heading into their 3rd or 4th season of machine pitch. New coaches to machine pitch are also at a big disadvantage to experienced machine pitch coaches.

-    IMP will be for players new to machine pitch (up from TBall) and for players 7 or 8 yrs old new to the game of baseball (baseball ages aren’t priority, being a novice baseball player just learning the game is the objective for this division). IMP will play on a slower machine pitch speed and the intention is for coaches to teach more basic fundamentals, and for example, be less aggressive with coaching base running.

-    AMP will be for players who are either truly gifted and baseball knowledgeable coming up from 6U coach pitch, or those with some experience with machine pitch and are looking for a higher level of competition to prepare for Minors kid pitch. In coming seasons this will be also those players ready to move up from a season or two in IMP. The machine will be set to a faster speed and the baserunners as well as coaches should be more aggressive on the bases.

-    More clarity to come but these are the basics for the two new divisions.

Evaluation/Draft/Team Formation:

-    We are going to simplify the evaluations and draft process for our players and coaches this Spring (and Commissioners).

-    All players, including Coach’s players, will come to the mandatory evaluations in early February (dates/times/locations TBD).

-    All players will be rated 1 to 5 by all coaches, 5 being highest, after fielding/throwing/hitting evaluations, and there will also be an independent evaluator at each session.

-    The draft process will be simplified, and there is a new process to address coach’s kids who cannot attend evaluations, as well as previous Challenge/All Stars kids who cannot address evaluations.

-    Speaking of coaches, with record number of teams anticipated this Spring we are requesting that anyone who is able to volunteer to be a coach, especially head coach, to please register when you register your player.

Other Developments/Information:

-    We have been in touch with WCWAA (Wesley Chapel Weddington Athletic Association) and besides our normal Waxhaw Baseball rec regular season we are also planning on 1-2 non-conference games against their rec teams this Spring for bonus baseball.

-    In addition, we may also run one or two bonus Challenge Sunday only tournaments vs WCWAA exclusively for all our Challenge team age groups, with Waxhaw hosting one tourney and attending one at WCWAA.

-    Speaking of Challenge, we are planning 7U, 8U, 9U, possibly 10U, 11U, 12U, and 13U Challenge teams this Spring, which will play a higher level of baseball versus other local organizations. More on Challenge in coming weeks as tryouts will be most likely late January or early February. It is still a requirement in the Spring for those looking to play Challenge ball to also play Rec ball (this is not a requirement in the Fall).

-    We are also planning on having our All Star teams tryout and form at the end of the regular season for each age group 7U and older.

-    In addition, and this is new to our league but used in many leagues around the country. With the additional fields and maintenance, the potential need for volunteers to help with the new concession stand, and general fundraising and sponsorships, we are going to charge a $50 “Work Bond” per family this Spring at registration. This “work bond” will be refunded if you or a family member or friend attends one of our work days at the fields (details and dates TBD but announced soon), volunteers one day in the concession stand (again, details TBD), or becomes a Silver Level or higher Sponsor (more info on Sponsorship opportunities to come). There may be other way to volunteer to have your work bond refunded, including potentially volunteering at a fundraiser Home Run Derby we are considering, more info to come. If you do not choose to volunteer the work bond will go towards the general improvement costs of our fields. 

Again, I apologize for the long introductory email as your new Baseball Commissioner. I am honored and excited to hit the ground running. We have been having meetings since the Fall season ended with a lot of developments and I wanted to pass along much of this information along with the requests for the 2 new positions we are looking to add shortly as registration should be opening soon.
