WESTTOWN EXPRESS BASEBALL 2022 SEASON
Online Registration Open; 2022 Tryouts April 2nd and 3rd
Online registration for the 2022 Westtown Express American Legion Spring season is now open. We ask that all interested players register online ahead of tryouts. Our web address is https://westtownexpress.com the webpage is still under construction though please use the top right tab ‘2022 SPRING LEGION REGISTRATION’ next to the ‘HOME’ tab on the website.
We would like to field four teams this season: Prep, Sandlot, Junior Legion, and Senior Legion. League age is defined as the player’s age as of 12-31-2022. The four teams are broken out by the following age groups:
- · Prep – 14U (birth year 2008 and later)
- · Sandlot – 15U (birth year 2007)
- · Junior Legion – 16U (birth year 2006)
- · Senior Legion – 17-19 (birth years 2003-2005)
If a player is league age 19 (birth year 2003) and in college, they are eligible to play so long as they played for the Westtown Legion team last year. All players must live in the Rustin High School demographic area to play for a Westtown Express team.
We are planning tryouts at the Rustin High School Varsity Field for Saturday and Sunday 12pm-4pm, April 2nd and 3rd (rain date tentatively set for April 9th/10th). Prospective players must attend at least one, and preferably both, tryouts to be considered for a roster position. Legion is wood bat only and team bats will be available at tryouts for players who do not yet own their own. Registration fees are anticipated to be $400 ($300 for a second player from the same family) and are required at tryouts for a player to be considered for a roster spot (check will be shredded if player does not make a roster). Checks should be made payable to “Westtown Legion Baseball” with the player’s name in the memo line.
The Legion baseball season typically runs from the middle of May (generally when school teams have finished their seasons) through mid-July.
As we get close to tryouts, please check our website for any updates and look out for emails.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
