The Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League, which starts its season the first week in May, hosts its spring general team meeting tonight at Williams Lake secondary.
The meeting, which will be held in room 107 at 7 p.m. at the school, requires team captains to be there to go over rules and procedure for the upcoming season.
Linda Barbondy, president of the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League, said there’s still room for one more team. She added with one more team the league will be at capacity with 24 teams (six in each division — A through D).
“Having 24 teams is perfect for the league because then everything works out,” Barbondy said.
The league, which plays at the Esler Sports Complex ball fields, has been working, for a number of years, on raising and acquiring funds to install irrigation at the fields. Following last season the first steps to that happening took place.
“At the end of last season we drilled a well at Esler and now we need to get water from the well to a pump house so that we’re able to use the water,” she said. “We’ll have water up there now, but just no irrigation.”
Regular field maintenance and upgrades are on the agenda for the season. Last year, two new dugouts were built.
“This year our main thing is to build [new] dugouts on field two, and we’ll be working toward the end of the season on getting irrigation.”
League play starts May 1, with the annual Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League Icebreaker Tournament following on May 5-6. The league also hosts the Overlander Slo-Pitch Tournament in June, a year-end tournament in August and a fall ball tournament in September.
