Sunshine and warm temperatures greeted the Pierson teams this week for their first workouts. The weekend rain won’t keep their younger counterparts from getting ready for spring.
The Sag Harbor-Bridgehampton Little League will hold its final winter clinic in the Pierson High School gym on Sunday. Seven-to-nine year old softball players are expected in from 1 to 2 p.m. and ten-to-twelve year old softball players from 2 to 3 p.m. The seven-to-nine year old baseball players will go from 3 to 4 p.m. with the ten-to-twelve year olds in from 4 to 5 p.m.
Parents who would like to be considered for managing or coaching should attend the clinic for their child’s age group.
The pre-draft evaluations for the 9-and-up AAA and majors divisions will be held in the Pierson gym next Saturday, March 20. If the weather is suitable, the evaluations may move outdoors.
Players eligible for softball majors (girls ages nine to twelve as of Jan 1, 2010) will have their evaluation session from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Players eligible for baseball AAA and majors (kids between the ages of nine and twelve on April 30, 2010) are scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m.
These evaluations are mandatory for players wanting to participate in the AAA and majors programs. The evaluations allow the coaches to pick even teams.
For the third year in a row, the AAA and majors division will have “inter-league play” with Southampton, chapter president Scott Brooks noting the arrangement will “give kids an opportunity to face competition from a different set of players.”
Registration for all the chapter’s divisions is ongoing online at sagharborlittleleague.org. Mail-in registration forms are available at the elementary school.
