Wed, 5 Mar 2013 20:30:00 ESTSun, 30 Mar 2014 00:00:00 EDTDear Hilltop families:
Here is a quick update on your league and where we stand now that March has arrived.
Communication will be important as we hope the weather breaks and Spring is on the horizon. Not to anyone's surprise but the weather has greatly affected the playing surfaces and we are all curious to see what the fields look like after the snow melts.
Fields and start of practice
- We are all grateful that only three inches snow fell and not twelve.
Fields and batting cages are currently closed and will be opened at the direction of the township and school district. No firm date has been provided.
- To be honest we are a couple weeks away from scheduling any practices. The snow must melt, than the ground must thaw and then the grass has to strengthen,
- The batting cage nets need to be rehung. New stone inserted and temporary fencing removed.
- We will continue to work closely with the township and school district on field openings but our next communication will not be until mid next week and see how the warm weekend affects the grounds.
- We will begin to work on the game schedules this week now that we have a firm number of teams per division. We will run the first pass with opening day on March 29th.
- Schedules are three weeks away. Once we have a projection on field openings than we will feel comfortable releasing schedules.
- All import dates, including opening day will be reviewed again at the next board meeting on Sunday, March 9th.
- Coordinators are working with Don Foley and managers to schedule the team selections. The majority of these selections will begin this weekend into next week.
4-U Pee-Wee Division
- You will receive an introduction letter by the end of the week explaining the program, volunteerism at each session and other important frequently asked questions.
- Welcome to Hilltop and I look forward to meeting you.
- First week of March will be team selection
- March 9th at 7pm will be baseball tournament manager elections
- March 22nd will be Family Clean up day from 10am to Noon
- March 29th will be the Parade/Opening Day 校ll players to Manoa Elementary by 8:45am
- April 12th will be Picture Day 栔ime TBD after in house schedule is released.
- May 5th 栈illtop Night at the Phillies!
- May 17th will be All Star Day and Beef and Beer
All-Star Day and Beef and Beer will be Saturday May 17th
We are going to try something new this year based on the success of the 50th anniversary weekend. We will have All-star day and the Beer and Beer on one day.
- 9-4pm will be All Star activities
- 7-11pm will be the Beef and Beer at the American legion
- (Sunday games will start at Noon for recovery time)
- We will be placing a large tent in the back parking lot to accommodate the additional guests, so line up your baby sitters now.

Mon, 2 Dec 2013 18:00:00 ESTMon, 9 Jun 2014 00:00:00 EDTThis year the Hilltop Board of Directors has decided to hold coaches elections for our DelVal teams at the December 8th meeting at 7:00 P.M. in the American Legion Post (upstairs). This is being done in order for the elected coaches to take an active role in both the pitching and general skills clinics that will take place throughout the winter months and allow for more productive instruction for all girls regardless of initial skill levels. Try-outs for both the 10-&Under and 12-&-Under teams will be conducted in early February as usual, and participation in the clinics will not affect the evaluation process.
I urge all interested coaches to contact myself or Fred Steigerwalt and to attend the Dec 8th meeting. We will have two (2) independent teams (10-&Under and 12-&-Under) playing a full Del Val schedule with end of year tournaments. I have attached general information about our DelVal program for all to review. We are looking forward to an exciting 2014 season, one that is full of learning, winning and most of all enjoyment for the players.
Please see the DelVal information letter and try-out form for more information.
