LSTAA in conjunction with the township public works department began a major field rahabilitation project late this summer which will continue into the fall. The association purchased some clay bricks which were installed at the Memorial Field batter’s boxes and pitchers mounds. Additionally, the township has regraded the field in order to make it safer by removing the “lips” that have built up over years. We are very excited about this project and plan to do similar clay brick installations at Woodridge, Steppe, Cross and Shopes in the months ahead.
LSTAA would like to thank the Lower Swatara Township Commissioners and the workers of the public works department for helping us complete this project.
This fall, LSTAA is organizing teams for a fall baseball league. Teams will be formed at the 8-9 level and a 10-12 level. Playing ages are determined by the age you will be as of April 30, 2015 (next year). Players will be playing 8-10 games over the months on September and October with games predominantly on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Practices will start in August and frequency will be determined by the coach of the team after talking with the team parents. A fee may be charged for participation in order to cover umpire and uniform fees.
If you are interested in playing fall baseball or have more questions, contact either Jason Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mark Imler at VPBaseball@lstaa.org ASAP. We like to have our teams formed and commitments made by Tuesday, August 5.
More information will be forthcoming regarding possible Fall Softball Teams at the fast and slow pitch levels.
LSTAA wishes all our families a wonderful and safe 4th of July holiday. We celebrate America, its indepedence, and of course the great game of baseball and softball.
Congratulations to all four Lower Swatara Rookie baseball teams who played in an association “playoff” tournament. Coach Dunlap and Cochran’s teams made it to the final game, which was played last Friday evening at the Major Field in Woodridge. It was an exciting game with coach Dunlap’s team winning with a walk off hit in the bottom of the 6th inning. Congratulations to all Rookie teams and parents for a great 2014 season.
Congratulations to coach Lenny Yospa and his U8 girls for winning the Suburban Softball U8 Fun Day Tournament.
