Cubs win the AAA playoffs! Congrats!

Last night the Cubs won the AAA playoffs over the Giants 14-7 and they will now head to the District 17 Tournament of Champions. They will play on June 8th at 4:30 PM at Pasadena Central’s Victory Park Fields. They will play the winner of Santa Anita and San Marino, who play the day before.

Also, congratulations to the Giants, the regular season champs with the best overall record! They will head to the City Tournament and play on June 7th at 12:30 at Arcadia American’s Windsor Field. They will be taking on the squad from West Pasadena.

And finally, congratulations to the Dodgers, Astros, RedSox and Orioles for a great season of competitive baseball and tons of fun. We look forward to seeing many of those players in the Majors next year!

3) Closing Day is May 31 (more tomorrow on events)

Live, love, and PSWLL!!

Closing Day for PSWLL is Saturday, May 31st, at Allendale Field.

There will be TeeBall games starting at 8am, and fun activities for kids at all levels (wiffle ball home run, pitching speed trials, water balloon toss at coaches, baseball tattoos, a real Pasadena firetruck, fun snacks…) starting at 8:30am.

The formal closing ceremonies will start at 10:30am and teams will be introduced and recognized for their great season, with trophies going to the Champions in each division, home run hitters, and a special ceremony for the 12 year olds who are “graduating” from PSWLL. We also have a dedication planned.

After the events, we close the field for the home-run derby, consisting of those players who hit over-the-fence home-runs. After that…well…you’ll just have to wait for the formal itinerary (coming soon!!).

From the Dodgers…for the June 1 Game

Youth Softball & Baseball Group Leaders,

I hope all is well and that everyone is excited for Sunday’s game and please keep in mind that it is a 5:07pm start time. I encourage you to take the time to read a few pieces of key information that you should relay to the parents of your respective leagues.

Please note this will be one of our largest parades of the year. In order for the kids to have the most enjoyable experience- communication to parents is key. Please relay the content of this email to the rest of the group

-Gates will open at 2:30pm.

-Our parking guidelines have changed. We recommend you purchase parking in advance. To purchase advanced parking at a discounted rate, view freeway routes and parking maps at www.dodgers.com/parking. GA Parking is $10 in advance, $15 at the gate. Bus parking is $35 in advance, $50 at the gate. You can also park in Lots 13 and 14* for $5 in advance $15 at the gate. *there is an uphill walk from these lots, but it is an easy entrance and exit before and after games. Keep in mind for those choosing to park in Lots 13 to 14, it is about a 25 minute walk to the center field check in table.

Parade Info:

-Starting at 3:00pm teams can meet in the Lot G center field parking lot and the parade will begin shortly thereafter. Please keep in mind that if your team arrives later than 3:50 pm it is not guaranteed they will be able to parade.

-If you would like your whole district, league or team to parade all together, please coordinate a pre-game meeting spot and bring a designated league sign.

-We are starting the parade as early as possible on this date to ensure each baseball and softball player will have the opportunity to get the Kids Batting Helmet giveaway. So directly after the parade please have the kids and coaches go to their respective gates. Here they will have their tickets scanned and receive the giveaway item upon entry.

-The parade is for players and up to 4 coaches per team ONLY. All other parents and siblings should go to their seats. We have limited time to parade and want to make sure the players get to fully enjoy the experience.

-Players must wear their team issued uniforms or jerseys to participate in parade.

- Coaches must wear uniform jerseys and/or team hat to participate in parade.

The following items are not allowed on the field during the parade:
- Autographs

- bags, gloves, balls or bats

- stopping to take pictures

- food and beverage

- adults (outside of coaches in uniform)- we have a limited amount of time to parade- parents, siblings, and friends must watch from their seats.

We’d like to remind you to have your kids wear their team t-shirt and hat (to help shield the sun), wear sunscreen, and have fun!
