Between The Lines


Between The Lines is a new posting that will be published throughout the 2010 TP House League Baseball season that will feature news bits about our baseball program.

WOODEN BROOMSTICKS NEEDED

The TP Baseball Committee is in dire need of old wooden broomsticks.

Our coaches use broomsticks in our wiffleball training program which assists players to develop better hand and eye coordination in hitting the baseball. We saw off the broom and use the old broom handle as a batting stick.

We kindly ask all parents and players to check their homes or apartments for any old wooden brooms that they no longer need. Just bring them to the park on any game or practice day and we’ll be happy to take them off your hands.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

WANT AD: THERE’S NO LIFE LIKE IT! SCOREKEEPERS NEEDED!

One the most overlooked aspects of our house league baseball program is the need for volunteers to take the time to scorekeep during our games. The scorekeepers role is integral since you really can’t play without someone keeping tabs on the runs, outs and batting orders of both teams. In tandem with the umpires, the scorekeeper keeps the game flowing in an orderly and controlled manner. By scorekeeping, you’ll also develop a better understanding of the nuances and beauty of a baseball game.

The TP Baseball Committee is looking for parents in our Mosquito, Peewee, Bantam and Midget Divisions who are eager to learn the art of scorekeeping. Since the strength of of our TP Baseball Program is our volunteers, it’s a wonderful opportunity for you to help out during games throughout the season. 

Scorekeeping is relatively easy. Interested parents will be duly trained at the ballpark by someone from the TP Baseball Committee at a time that is convenient to them. 

If you are interested in scorekeeping, please email us at [email protected]

NEW EQUIPMENT FOR THE 2010 TP HOUSE LEAGUE BASEBALL SEASON ROLLS OUT

As the 2010 TP House League Baseball season begins, players, parents and coaches will notice that we’ve made another sizable reinvestment in new equipment that will allow players to perform better and more safely.

The Bantam and Midget Divisions are the beneficiaries of new batting helmets, bats and catcher’s masks. Players in the Mosquito and Peewee Divisions will notice new batting helmets and catcher’s masks. All divisions will also see new equipment bags that will make it easier for us to store the equipment and get it to and from the baseball diamonds as quickly as possible.

The TP Baseball Committee would like to thank the parents and players who support our wonderful baseball program. Without your commitment, these equipment upgrades would not be possible.

When you’re at a game or practice, just look for the TP logo.
