Opening Day Cancelled and Other Softball Updates

More News 

We are disappointed to tell everyone that with the current weather situation, we, along with the Eau Claire Nationals, have been advised to cancel opening day that was scheduled for Saturday, April 28th.  Opening day will not be rescheduled. 

While we understand that the forecast is finally starting to look nice, it will not be enough to allow us to hold our opening day festivities. In addition to the weather, there are other factors that need to be taken into account, such as the prepping of the fields. The city workers will first focus on preparing the fields that the high schools will need to play on.  Even if the fields “look good”, they will not be ready to be played on until all of the frost is out of the ground. We are also unsure when it will be safe enough to have the water turned on so we can use the bathrooms and concession stand. 

This was a difficult decision to make, because we all want to get out and play, but we have to consider the impact that it will have on our fields if we play or practice on them too early.  

Practice will continue to be held indoors at the elementary school gyms and Boys and Girls Club until notice is received from the City that the fields can be used.  Weather permitting, intra-league softball games for the 10u and 12u teams will be held Tuesday, May 8th.  Softball league games for 8u, 10u, and 12u teams will begin Monday, May 14th.  Our 14u and high school teams will start their seasons in early June following the conclusion of the high school season. 

 

In other news, Eau Claire Fastpitch will have a board meeting on Wednesday, April 25th.  Checks for player registration fees will be cashed after that date.

 

Finally, all league families are expected to work one concession shift at Jeffers Park.  To sign-up for your shift, please use the link http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a094caaab23a31-concessionThis link will also be posted on our home page at www.eauclairefastpitch.com.

 

Let’s hope for warm and sunny days ahead and let’s play ball!
