Baseball League Code of Conduct
Those of you who participate in youth baseball may find this a helpful document to distribute to parents in your league next season:

Team Shelters are Rolling!
Literally! Look how easy it is to transport the Team Shelter from one place to another. This means that schools with multi-use fields can utilize the shelter for their soccer, lacrosse and field hockey teams, but then quickly remove it when football needs the field. Contact us about getting your own shelter in your school's colors, affordably.
Some great new programs on the horizon from us. In the meantime, get out there and have some fun in the sun these next couple of days. Exercise, watch your kids play sports, kick or throw or hit a ball around. You've earned the rest and relaxation!
Ultimate dugout organizer
Yesterday we posted some information about the Little League World Series and how all eight regional tournaments were going on right now. If you catch any of those games on TV you'll see players in fancy dugouts just like the ones in the Big Leagues. But what about the average, run-of-the-mill Little League baseball field where all of these kids, and millions more, played their regular-season games? Nearly all of those fields simply have a chain-link fence-enclosed bench that offers no place to store helmets, gloves, bats or other items.
That's why we're proud to carry the Bench Coach Dugout Organizer. It turns that ordinary city field bench into a true dugout experience by providing cubbies for gear and racks for bats. Every travel team and youth baseball league should have these to spruce up the experience for the kids!
All eight regions are in full swing with state champions squaring off to see who gets to go to the hallowed ground of Williamsport, Pa and the Little League World Series. All of these youngsters have big league dreams, but they're still kids at heart. Let's root them on!
Team Shelter - Who Needs It?
The answer? Everyone who is involved with a high school or college field hockey, lacrosse or soccer program. And that's not all. Team Shelters are tremendous for club soccer and travel lacrosse or field hockey programs as well. The beauty of the team shelter is its affordability, portability and much more. No longer will fans in the stands be able to interact with your players on the bench. And, of course, the biggest factor is part of its name...shelter. Wind, rain, snow, sleet, only a mail carrier wouldn't like the Team Shelter. And, to top it off, we're working on a program that will allow your team to get one for free, or at a subsidized cost. More on this to come soon. In the meantime, let us know if you'd like more information or details about this great product.
