THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF WMLL & for your support in our two safe & successful 2021 seasons of baseball & softball! It was wonderful to return to a largely normal ballpark environment & games – with standard playing fields & rules, robust schedules, full concessions, unlimited spectators & the ability to hang out at the ballpark with WMLL friends. Almost 1,200 players participated in over 700 games at WMLL in 2021 – 550 in the spring/summer & 630 in the fall. WMLL was also thrilled to resume Challenger League play for boys & girls with physical & mental disabilities after a year off in 2020.
To keep WMLL the special place that it is, with first-class playing fields and a safe family-friendly ballpark, many improvements were made in 2021 – including to infields, bleachers, picnic tables & the playground surface as well as a new fence & trees (click HERE for a photo summary) As a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization, WMLL relies heavily on donations to fund these improvements. THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone that donated in 2021. These improvements would not have been possible without your generosity!
Many more improvements are planned for 2022:
- General: new trash & recycling receptacles, dugout roofs, batting cage netting, & grounds crew equipment + improved WIFI service
- Minor & Battista Fields: new scoreboards & professionally leveled infields (that will improve play & field drying after rain)
- Battista Field: new scorer’s table with simple PA/electrical connections & in-ground outlet behind the mound (for use with a pitching machine)
To support these efforts & our critical player scholarship fund that makes WMLL accessible to everyone, we are asking all WMLL families to consider making a 100% tax deductible year-end donation. You can quickly & securely donate by credit card, ACH payment, or check via TeamSnap (by clicking HERE).
