Our Work Day to get the fields open and ready for play will be Sunday, March 13 starting at 9am. We had hoped to try for this Sunday, but the fields are still simply too soft. Please try to come out for a couple of hours on the 13th and help us get the fields cleaned up and ready for the kids! We need your help to make quick work of the day.

There will be an exciting change in the Softball Majors division this year, as we merge our Majors softball program with Devon Strafford's Majors program. The groundwork for the change was laid last year when we merged schedules with DS during the season and merged tournament teams, resulting in an impressive run to the semi-finals in the district tournament. The synergy created by merging the teams at this level should make for a very exciting and competitive season, as well as tournament season.
All Softball Majors players will be required to attend an assessment session on Saturday, February 20th at Grand Slam in Malvern. Because of the merger with DS, coaches on both sides need time to evaluate the players prior to the draft, which will take place later that following week. This will allow us to set the Majors teams by the end of February.
We are in need of several volunteers to take on roles within BPALL. Please note the following volunteer needs and contact Mike Nichols at email@example.com if you would like to take the role and/or if you have any questions. Each of these positions involves a very manageable amount of time and could be done by one person or shared by two or more.
