Scheduling to Accommodate Club Team Play

For the 2021 spring/summer season, WMLL will utilize alternate weekend scheduling for Rookie, Minor & Major baseball & softball leagues.  Additionally, after Opening Weekend no Junior baseball regular season games will be scheduled on weekends.  See details below.

ALTERNATE WEEKEND SCHEDULES

In alternate weekend scheduling, leagues alternate between “ON” and “OFF” weekends.  During a league’s “ON” weekends, teams in that league typically play games on both Saturday and Sunday.  During a league’s “OFF” weekends, teams do not play any games.

“OFF” weekends are used to give WMLL players & families open weekends for other activities and to allow WMLL players and coaches that participate on non-WMLL affiliated club teams to play in tournaments.

Minor League baseball and Rookie, Minor & Major League softball
– “On” weekends* = May 1 & 2, May 15 & 16, May 29 & 30, Jun 12 & 13, Jun 26 & 27 + Jul 10 & 11
– Special “On” weekend for Minor Baseball = Apr 24 & 25 (Opening Weekend)
– Special “On” weekends for Rookie & Major Softball = Jul 17 & 18 (WMLL league tournament)

Rookie & Major League baseball
– “ON” weekends* = Apr 24 & 25, May 8 & 9, May 22 & 23, Jun 5 & 6, Jun 19 & 20, Jul 3 & 4 + Jul 17 & 18
– Special “On” weekends for Major Baseball = May 1 & 2, possibly May 29 & 30 (hold for Helfaer Field games) & Jun 26 & 27 (WMLL league tournament)

* = if dates fall on or between the relevant League’s Opening Weekend & League Tournament


JUNIOR & SENIOR LEAGUE WEEKEND SCHEDULES

Junior League baseball
To better accommodate Junior baseball players that participate on non-WMLL affiliated teams / leagues, WMLL is trying something different for the 2021 spring/summer season.  After Opening Weekend (Apr 24 & 25), all remaining regular season games will be scheduled for weekdays – typically with two games every week.  Whenever possible, rainout makeup games will also be scheduled on weekdays. As a last resort, rainout makeup games could be scheduled on the following Sundays – May 23, Jun 6, Jun 20, Jul 4. Weekend games may also take place on the weekend of Jul 17 & 18 the the Junior League tournament.

Senior League baseball
Senior League teams typically play one game every Tuesday, Friday & Sunday.

Junior & Senior League softball
