Walnut Creek Pony Baseball
SPRING TRYOUTS ARE OVER!!!
Thanks to all the players who came to our Bulldawgs spring tryouts this year! With the exception of our Saturday 'rainout,' we had some great baseball weather.
Teams are due to be solidified this week. If you are offered a position, you have 48 hours to make your $250 nonrefundable deposit (see payment tab to the left) Then, please plan to attend our mandatory uniform night on November 3rd at The Fieldhouse. Bring your player, as he will get a chance to be sized for his uniform (no dressing rooms, so dress appropriately). Team payments are also due that evening, though we do have an option to pay 1/2 that night, and the balance no later than January 1st.
A huge THANK YOU to the coaches who came out to help get the fields ready and critique the players. The practices were well run, and nicely organized.
Finally, a special shout out to Nicole Damhesel for giving up two weekends to work check-in! Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
