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.

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.

COACHES: I am excited to tell you that Elite Baseball is offering a "team rate" for coaches who are looking to continue to have them work with your kids. For those of you who were not able to attend the clinics we held, I can tell you the parents and coaches that were able to attend thought they did a great job. This current opportunity is for you to have them come to your team's weeknight practices and work specifically with your team.

The cost they are currently giving us is $120 for a two-hour practice. I can tell you, this is about what they would get for one kid for two hours, so this is an incredible discount that I would take advantage of if you can.

ELCO Youth Baseball will not be covering any of this expense, as we did not cover any of the costs for the clinic. If you want to ask each player to contribute $10, or you want to defer the cost over your coaching staff, is your preference entirely. I trust that you will come up with something that works for your team.

To schedule something, please contact Matt Knox of Elite Baseball of Lancaster directly at either mattknox@elitebaseballoflancaster.com or 717-421-8575

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. We will have a variety of velcro and flexfit options. Please call Michelle at 717.304.5420 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.
