Welcome to Elma Marilla Wales Baseball & Softball
The Board of Directors, Baseball Division, E.M.W. Sports, Inc. would like to state that the main purpose of this organization is to provide the opportunity for boys and girls to play, learn and enjoy baseball and softball in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and fair play. It is essential that all of us conduct ourselves in a manner that will encourage this ideal.
Many hours of time are spent by volunteers to help make this program a success. It is our desire to create a community project in which parents may participate with their children in the baseball and softball programs. Coaches, umpires and workers are always needed and your assistance is most welcome.
Field Clean Up is Sat. April 22
Saturday April 22nd, is Feld Clean Up Day — starting at 9am.
Volunteers are needed to ensure all fields are playable for the start of the house baseball and softball seasons. Volunteers that show up on field clean up day will be given priority to the fields that they, and/or their children play on. The lack of volunteers for a specific league may mean delays on getting that specific field(s) ready on time.
In addition to normal field clean up, volunteer work will be needed to help fix the Major Girls dug out cover framework.
The more volunteers that show up the less work that is needed by each. Volunteers are asked to bring a shovel or rake, if possible.
Equipment pick up is also on Saturday April 22nd, from 10am to noon.
Remember, the fields are not open until after field clean up day is complete. You can practice on the grass, but everyone needs to stay off the dirt portions of the fields. This will ensure that there is no extra time spent fixing issues that may occur while practicing on unprepared wet fields.
If interested in becoming an EMW umpire and are 12 years old or older
(6th Grade and up), please attend the two training sessions.

Your player is responsible for his or her mitt, cleats* or sneakers, and baseball pants* of any color. Many softball players also invest in a face guard (optional) and we recommend that boys wear a protective cup. *Long pants and cleats are recommended for Rookie league and older.
