LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

March 6, 2023

To the West Plains Little League Community 

Welcome to the 2023 season, which marks the 20th season for West Plains Little League!

I would like to start off by saying thank you to all the many people who volunteer within our organization.  We have so many amazing volunteers, from board members to coaches to parents, that make Little League in our area possible.    All of the time dedicated to developing our softball and baseball programs is freely given by people who care to make a difference in the lives of young people.  Not only do the children in our program learn fundamental softball and baseball skills, but they learn the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, and community.  All of this is made possible because of our volunteers.

Thank you!.

In 2022 West Plains served close to 500 children in the West Plains area, ranging from ages 4-12 years old. We have rebounded strong from the COVID pandemic!  We also had many junior high and high school students volunteer as umpires for our league. We saw an increase in the number of tee ball players and an increase in participation in our softball program.  We also had a very successful summer All Star program.  We had two tournament teams that were District 13 Champions and went on to represent our league at Washington State Baseball Little League tournaments!  The 9-10 team represented our league in Vancouver, WA and won two games at state!  The majors team represented our league in Woodinville, WA. Both of these teams represented WPLL very well! 

Our league is designed to build character through the games of softball and baseball.  We ensure that we offer divisions that allow for every child to find a place, regardless of financial status or ability.  West Plains area businesses partner with West Plains Little League and provide valuable financial support. Our fees will remain some of the lowest in the state of Washington thanks to the support we receive from local area businesses. We would like to thank our many sponsors for their support and for showing a genuine interest in promoting baseball and softball in the West Plains. 

The field space that WPLL uses for practices and games around the West Plains area is the property of many different school districts and municipalities.  We rely heavily on these fields, and recognize that without the partnerships that we have, we would be unable to run our programs.  Thank you to the City of Cheney, The City of Medical Lake, The City of Airway Heights, The Medical Lake School District, and the Cheney School District for helping promote baseball and softball by providing field access.    

WPLL is a part of District 13, and District 13 is slated to host the Juniors level All Star Tournament for the state of Washington this summer.  This is an amazing opportunity for our league and for our communities. The tournament will take place at the Medical Lake High School Baseball complex.  We need volunteers and we need financial resources to be able to really put together something special for this event.  If you have any interest in contributing to the planning of the state tournament or have any connections to businesses that might like to be a sponsor of the tournament, please let us know!

Registration for AAA/Majors closes on March 10, 2023 and registration for Tee Ball/Coach Pitch closes on March 26th, 2023.  We are excited for another busy fun spring making memories at the ball field!    

Please keep informed about our league via our website at www.westplainslittleleague.com or on Facebook! 

We are looking forward to celebrating 20 seasons of WPLL with an amazing season of baseball and softball.  We are always looking for future board members and those who want to participate in creating a valuable high quality experience for our youth.  Please let us know if you have any interest in volunteering at any level! 

Let’s PLAY BALL!
