Hi Everyone, several new items:
July 5th: The Dedham team notified us they’re now unavailable for our July 5th game (or for that week, given a tournament conflict). We’ll look to reschedule. We’re exploring whether replacement teams are available that week, but based on initial discussions, the holiday, and games scheduled, that may be unlikely. If not, we’ll schedule at least one practice or scrimmage in the short week.
Attendance: In the morning, you’ll see teamsnaps for each of our confirmed games. Please note any known/anticipated game absences.
Friday games: We may try to reschedule a game for a Friday given our compact schedule. In addition to teamsnap, will you please email me now if you anticipate not being available on Friday July 9th or Friday July 30th.
Walpole game 7/22: With the potential of six baseball days in a row, we were able to move the Walpole game from Thurs July 22nd to Thurs July 15th for a rest day before Sandwich.
Volunteers: There's a WLL schedule for home game volunteers, and we’ll need folks for the scoreboard and snack shack (only our games). Those interested can sign up here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QFTucnwzfofrercPT3mo6bgF3rJMWdexekvr_omDous/edit?usp=sharing
Sandwich: The game schedule will be sent one week prior to the tournament. FYI, birth certificate copies will be required before the tournament. You can send to me by email or give a hard copy. I’ll send a reminder in a couple weeks but mentioning in advance.

I hope everyone enjoyed the Spring Season. A few Summer updates for our team:
-Uniforms: we received the uniforms and found that this year is different in that the league included pants, which is great, but it adds some uncertainty for sizing in advance of Reilly. In the interests of time, I've left your player's uniform in your home mailbox. Some of the jerseys are on the smaller side but I don't anticipate much jersey flexibility by Reilly. If pants don't fit, we may be able to go one size up from what I've given you. I have one extra medium pants, and may be able to get some larges if needed. Please let me know tomorrow if you find major issues.
-Practice: Our 5:30 Tuesday practice will be at Downey instead of Morrison. The weather's starting to look a little iffy - we'll send a note Tuesday if it becomes an issue.
-Volunteers: Thanks so much for everyone's support in filling up the Reilly volunteer schedule. I know it's not ideal to quickly figure out volunteer times particularly this time of year, but we're in good shape and grateful for it.
-Reilly: There will be a national anthem ceremony a few minutes before our 5:30 Wed game in which the players will line up down the base-path. I understand there's a Sheehan 5th grade Tree-Top event right before our game which may make for an interesting cannonball run over to Morrison. If you anticipate any issues please let me know.
-Teamsnap: You should've received a link to the 11A Teamsnap from Greg, which we'll use going forward for scheduling/notification of attendance. If you didn't see it or have any issues please reach out to Greg.
-Sandwich/Thurs: We don't yet have the game-by-game Sandwich tournament schedule. As an FYI, it's very possible we won't have a game until Friday of the tournament, which would make a Thursday night hotel stay unneccesary. The hotel reservations can be adjusted anytime before 7 days in advance of arrival if Thursday becomes unneeded. We'll share game details when we have it.
If I've missed something or there are questions please just let me know.
Welcome to Summer Baseball! My name is Todd Petres and I, along with Greg Warren and Sean Murphy, will be coaching the 11A team. We’re very excited to get back into summer ball with this great group of boys, and things will happen quickly. Here are some things to know:
-First practice will be Tuesday, June 15th, at Morrison Field from 5:30pm – 7:00pm.
-After a year off, our very own Reilly Classic is back on this year, scheduled for June 16th – 20th. Keep in mind that as the host of the tournament, we’ll be expected to have volunteers from each family to help make the tournament work (more info on roles and time slots is forthcoming).
-We play in the Suburban League. The regular season schedule (beginning later in June) is not yet available, but we can expect 2 games a week against other towns, primarily on weekdays. Playoffs are generally the first week of August. We know that particularly this year, summer schedules may be tight, so if your son is not available for a game, please let me know as far in advance as possible so we can plan for subs and lineups, and please plan to arrive 30 minutes before each game.
-We will also be playing in the Sandwich Summer Blast Tournament from July 22nd – July 25th. You’ll need to book hotel rooms by contacting the hotel (mention you’re with the Westwood team) at:
Sandwich Lodge & Resort
54 Route 6A, Sandwich, MA 02563
-Uniforms (hats & jerseys) will be forthcoming, but please be sure your son has a pair of white baseball pants if at all possible.
-Our Selected Roster! :
-This message is reaching you through the WLL site. If there is a better email address for you, or I should include the email of another parent in the future, please let me know.
We look forward to a fun season. If I’ve forgotten something, or if there are questions, please never hesitate to reach out.
