IN-HOUSE BASEBALL OVERVIEW

WYSI sponsors 6 in-house recreational baseball leagues. The in-house leagues range from instructional coach pitch to competitive player pitch. All in-house programs focus on teaching the players the fundamentals of the game by introducing rules as the player progresses up through the leagues. This process allows the player to focus on the necessary skills at each level rather than an excess of rules.

The in-house leagues are open participation (i.e.; no tryouts) which means all players will be placed on a team that register before the cutoff and prior to the league capacity no matter skill level or experience. Please note, WYSI does conduct evaluations in an attempt to keep teams evenly matched.

Games and practices occur across a variety of locations in Westfield but no travel is required. Our facilities include Shamrock Springs 4Plex, Grand Park, and other Elementary Fields. Our competitive leagues (A - Seniors) will practice or play a game 2-4 nights a week which includes one Saturday game.
