Welcome to the Welles Park Oakland A's
by posted 03/04/2020

 

The weather is starting to slowly get warmer, that means it's time to start thinking about baseball. This email is to welcome you to the Welles Park Majors Oakland A's. 

 

My name is Peter Evans and I will be your son's head coach this year. Coaching along with me will be Ben Look and Jeff Shellhorn. The three of us have been coaching together since the Rookie league, however this will be my first year as the head coach. We are always looking for any additioanl help as well so please do not hestiate to ask. We will find a job for anyone who is interested. 

 

The schedule has been posted at the league's website, http://wppabaseball.com, I have also included the schedule below. 

 

A few important notes for the upcoming season:

  • Practice time - the pratcice schedule has not been set yet. I will send this out to everyone as soon as we are assigned a time/place. I will say that practice will not begin until after 4/15
  • Wood Bats - for those that are new to the Majors Division, wood bats are required for all hitters. All parents should have received an email a few days ago about a wood bat sale taking place at the Chicago Fire Pitch the next two Sundays, 3/8 and 3/15. Please let me know if you have any quesions about this. 
  • Important Dates - One big change this year is that the season is ending one week sooner. The end of the year awards/picnic will be on 7/18. This also means that the playoffs start earlier this year, the week of 6/16. 

 

Please let me know if you have any quesitons or concerns for the upcoming season. I can be reached via email at pevans@gmail.com or phone/text at 773-960-5592. 

I am looking forward to a great year. 

-Pete
