Just a few updates and reminders associated with this week.

The Metamora Park District has installed 4 speed bumps in Black Partridge Park to help curtail speeding within the park and improve safety for those getting in and out of cars towards the front of the park.  They were installed today ( 6/14 ).  They haven't been marked yet, so they can sneak up on you if you aren't observant.

Reminder - Game Tonight (6/7)
by posted 06/07/2021

First Game of the Season!

Game Start Time: 5:30 PM
Requested Arrival Time: 5:00 PM
Game Location: Lincoln Fields  @ Washington Park ( Washington, IL )


  • Please make sure the boys bring plenty of water
  • Please make sure the boys have a face covering/mask for the dugout.  I realize that we haven't been enforcing masks at the practices, but the boys don't spend much time together in the dugouts during prractice.  Game situations are a bit different.  Especially when the team is up to bat.  I haven't heard if the Washington Park District has shifted directions on face coverings/masks since they initially communicated their plans out.  I didn't hear back on my inquiry last week.  Just make sure the boys have them in the case they are still needed

You can reach me at the following phone number: (309) 231-5566

  • Just a reminder, you can find these communications online at the following address:


Game Schedule

  • Our game/practice schedule should be accessible online at the following address. 
  • All games this year ( at this point ) are slated to be played in Washington, no matter who our opponent is ( Sunnyland, Washington, Eureka ).  Please make sure you accomodate for travel time to Washington for each game
  • The games are spread across several different locations in Washington.  
  • Try to have the kids at the park 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.  This will give the kids time to warm up their arms.
  • I will send out a cancellation notice through this site if/when I recieve word that a game is cancelled 


Lost and Found

  • It appears that someone may have left a red helmet in the dugout Thursday evening.

Updates ( Week of 5/17 )

Rain, rain, go away!

Shirt / Ball Cap Hand Out

Rain or shine, let's plan on us picking up shirts and ball caps on Tuesday ( 5/18 ) @ 6:00 pm Black Partridge Park's Field 2.

If we do not have practice, I will be parked by the baseball field from 5:50 pm to 6:30 pm.  Look for a gray Honda Odyssey.  

We will also be giving out the picture order forms.  If for some reason you can't make this time, please let me know.



Pictures (individual and team) are tentatively slated to be part of Saturday's practice. 
So for Saturday's practice, please have the boys wear their baseball pants, shirts, and ball caps. 


I will do my best to keep all of you posted.  Thanks to those of you that have looped us in on when you and/or your boys will be out of town.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Two practices in a row!  I hope I am not jinxing us.

That said, it does look like rain is in the forecast for Saturday.  While I don't put too much stake in a forecast more than 24 hours out into the future, I plan to check the diamond condition around 8:00 am.  If I feel it is too muddy, I will send out a cancellation notice around that time.


Uniforms / Gear

The shirts and ballcaps arrived yesterday.  We plan to hand out shirts and caps at Saturday morning's practice. 

Our primary color is red.  With this in mind, we will be going with gray baseball pants. 

If you decide to buy a belt, please make sure it is red. For baseball cleats, remember that only plastic cleats are allowed.  Stay tuned on pictures.  I was approached with a specific date in mind, but it has since dawned on me that people may not have enough time to get pants and cleats lined up in time.



I do not have a detailed game schedule yet. 
Here is what I can provide at this time:

Regular Season: June 7th - July 18th ( plan for 2 games a week )

Tournament: July 18th-July 24th

I am meeting with the Washington Park District next Thursday ( 5/20 ) evening to work out the details of our schedules.  I am hoping to have a detailed schedule available the week of May 24th.  If you have vacation plans during our season, please let me know as soon as possible.  I know of at least one week where we will have a couple players away at Scout Camp.

As always, feel free to reach out to me with questions and/or concerns!
