Westtown Express Baseball 2021 Season

   FALL BASEBALL

 

FOR ALL Seniors/Juniors/Sandlot/Prep

We are now opening registration for our Fall Season. The Fall season will consist of 3-4 tournaments (12 games minimum, weather pending). We anticipate fielding two teams, an 18U and 14U team if we have enough players. The tournaments will be local and held in Kennett Square/Caln Townships.

For anyone that is new to our Legion program and would like to be added to our distribution list, please send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

As we did in the Spring/Summer season, we are allowed to open up to those at WC East (including feeder middle schools) as the West Chester program will not be fielding any teams this Fall season.

BASEBALL MADE PERFECTLY CLEAR

This is a game played by two teams, one out the other in. The one that’s in sends players out one at a time to see if they can get in before they get out. If they get out before they get in, they come in; but, it doesn’t count.  If they get in before they get out, it does count.

When the ones out get three outs from the ones in before they get in without getting out, the team that’s out comes in and the team that’s in goes out to get those going in out before they get in without being out.

When both teams have been in and out nine times the game is over. The team with the most in without being out before coming in wins unless the ones in are equal, in which case, the last ones go out to get the ones in out before they get in without being out.

The game ends when each team has the same number of ins out; but, one team has more in without being out before coming in.

Just a simple game, isn’t it?

THE BALL PLAYER'S 10 COMMANDMENTS

  1. Nobody ever became a ball player by walking after the ball
  2. You will never become a .300 hitter unless you take the bat off your shoulder
  3. If what you did yesterday still looks big to you; you haven't done much today
  4. Keep your head up and you not have to keep it down
  5. When you start to slide, slide! He who changes his mind may have to change a good leg for a bad one
  6. Do not alibi on bad hops. Anyone can field a good one
  7. Always run them out. You can never tell
  8. Never Quit
  9. Do not find too much fault with the umpires. You cannot expect them to be as perfect as you are
  10. A pitcher who hasn't got control hasn't got anything

Written by Chief Bender, Phila Athletics: 1903-1914
