On Wednesday, 5/14/14, more than a dozen Lebanon County fire departments escorted a gravely ill brother fireman home from the hospital. Robert Sweigart, a volunteer firefighter from Myerstown's Goodwill Fire Company, was being treated for leukemia. However, recently the treatments have proven unsuccessful.

To show our support and gratitude to this generous community volunteer, ELCO Youth Baseball's Goodwill Fire Company team will wear orange wristbands for the remainder of the season. Orange being the color for leukemia awareness.

In addition, we respectfully ask that everyone in our extended baseball family consider making a donation to Goodwill Fire Company. (Please write Robert Sweigart on the memo line of your check.)

Checks should be mailed to:
Goodwill Fire Company, No.1
299 West Washington Avenue
Myerstown, PA 17067

Please keep Robert's family in your thoughts and prayers.


Fall Baseball Sign-Ups:

ELCO Youth Baseball will once again offer fall baseball to all players with a "baseball age" of eight to eleven years old. "Baseball age" is defined by the age that your child has obtained by May 1st of the current year.

Sign-ups for the following divisions will be held on June 21st and June 28th at the "End of Season" tournaments at the Newmanstown Rec fields. Tournaments on both days will run from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. If you are interested, please stop by the pavilion during these days and times to sign-up.

9U Fall Baseball (Eight and Nine year old players based on age obtained by May 1st): Teams will be entered into the Lebanon Valley Pony Baseball League. The fall season will run from approximately mid August to late September. The registration fee for this league is $20.00. Please contact Ron Lutz (610.823.2377 or elcoyouthbaseball@gmail.com) with any questions.

11U Fall Baseball (Nine*, Ten and Eleven year old players based on age obtained by May 1st): Teams will be entered into the Lebanon Valley Midget Baseball League. The fall season will run from approximately mid August to late October. The registration fee for this league is $40.00. Please contact Craig Blatt (cbstang14@comcast.net) with any questions.

* The nine year old player that signs up for the 11U Fall Baseball division would be expected to try out for one of the midget teams (ELCO Gold or ELCO Blue) next Spring.

END OF SEASON TOURNAMENT: ELCO Youth Baseball (EYB) is excited to announce that this year we will be hosting “in-house” tournaments for all of our teams at each age level, excluding midget teams and 14U teams. “In-house” means that this is only for our EYB sponsored teams. All games will be played at the Newmanstown Recreation Park fields. This will also be considered our equipment “turn-in” day. When each team is eliminated, coaches will turn in their equipment at the designated area. Please see below for a brief description of each tournament.

6U Tournament (June 21st): By definition this will not be a tournament per se, but actually the end of the season where all teams will play their last game on the same day at the same field. The players will not experience the competition of a tournament, but should feel the same excitement as there will be multiple teams playing together for a fun day of baseball.

8U Tournament (June 21st): For the vast majority of players at this level, this will be their first taste of tournament baseball. They will play in a single elimination tournament. Each game will only be four innings long to help speed up play and to keep all players interested throughout the day. Click here for the bracket.

10U Tournament (June 28th): Teams will play in a single elimination tournament. Each game will only be four innings long to help speed up play. All 10U pony rules will apply. Click here for the bracket.

12U Tournament (June 28th): Due to our number of teams at this level, teams will play a round robin style tournament. Each team is guaranteed three games. Each game will only be four innings long to help speed up play. All 12U pony rules will apply. Click here for the bracket.

These tournaments would not be possible without our 2014 sponsor, Bob and Jake Man’s Pig Roast.


facebookDO YOU FACEBOOK?: If so, we'd love to have you "Like Us" as it is a tool we use to give periodic updates throughout the year. Click here to visit our page.


CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS: We are always in need of more corporate sponsors. If your company would be interested in being a sponsor for one of our teams, please view our sponsorship forms.


VACATION PLANNING? Every year we have parents ask us when they should plan their vacations, to ensure not missing any baseball. This year we anticipate our season and playoffs to be concluded by June 30th.


HATS FOR SALE: We have had some interest from parents wanting to buy team hats. Either the blue and gold for the travel team or the black and white of the recreational division. We have some extras for sale. Please e-mail baseball@elcoyouthsports.org for more information.


USED EQUIPMENT: We have gotten some questions from parents who want to know if we are interested in receiving donations of gently used catcher's equipment and bats. We most certainly are. Please feel free to contact any of the committee members or our equipment manager. Unfortunately we are not interested in used pants, cleats and gloves.
