To our West Side Little League Families,On behalf of our West Side Little League Board of Directors, I would like to wish you all a very happy start to the new year. Let's hope this warm weather continues well into our winter season.
Our 2016 West Side Little League Board of Directors is again working this off-season to develop a top-notch baseball program for our West Side youth. Here are a few notes on our recent 2015 successful baseball programs:
1. Our Intermediate Division Team (12-13 year olds) won the New Hampshire Intermediate State Title, they traveled to Long Island, NY for the Eastern Regional Tournament, and placed 3rd overall, losing to the eventual Intermediate LL National Championship team (Commack, NY) in a very close game.
2. Our West Side LL Major League Division Team moved onto the Manchester City-Wide Sam Harris Tournament Championship coming in 2nd in the City of Manchester.
3. Our 8-10 year old AAA Jimmy Fund tournament team went undefeated in Post Season Tournament play.
With the recent controversial announcement that the Manchester East Side Little League program will be breaking from our historic city-wide Little League program and moving to a Cal Ripken baseball program, I'm sure you'll all receive a request (flyer, email, phone call...etc) asking you to leave our West Side baseball program for their Cal Ripken program. I'd ask that you please consider all the recent successes of our West Side program noted above and the benefits of our West Side LIttle League program:
1. A Safety First approach to the game of baseball !!
2. A game designed for our neighborhood, not for a Win at all cost approach.3. A neighborhood game, of players developing their baseball skills with their friends & classmates.4. A player developmental program designed for the player, not the team's need to win.Our West Side Little League program will continue to work towards success without compromising our history, our friends or our neighbors. We're developing a plan to repeat as State Champions in the Intermediate Division, we're looking to further develop our Major League program (and win the City Sam Harris Title this year) and we're looking to build the best developmental program in our Minor, AA, and T-Ball programs.
