Thank you for participating in the 2017 Skiles Test Youth Baseball and Softball season! We hope you enjoyed it. Weather early in the season seemed to be a bigger challenge then years past, but we battled through and enjoyed a long streak of dry weather during our postseason tournament. The league invested in a new surface for the always busy "Frost Field" used for both A League Baseball and two Softball leagues and added additional drainage capacity on Steven Westhoff Field used by A League and Minor League baseball - both projects surely provided relief during a very wet Spring. Removable artificial mounds were added to both baseball fields to allow better flexibility to share the fields with multiple leagues. We refocused our emphasis a little by introducing exhibition games to encourage more opportunity for player development and weexpanded our tournament to use a double elimination format. We introduced the new online experience for registration, scheduling, and instant communication with the SI Play site and app. Here are a few things it took to get through our 52nd season:
Skiles Test Elementary, our host facility, is starting a renovation project. Our league will remain in contact with the Lawrence Township Metropolitan School District throughout project execution. We will communicate updates as needed on items that will have an impact on the 2018 baseball and softball season at Skiles Test. As project details and timelines are passed along to us, we will in turn share with you.
Mark your calendars for early 2018 - registration for the next season of Skiles Test Baseball and Softball will open the first week of January. We will offer the best discounts to those that register the earliest. Our early bird special will be available once registration opens and typically runs into February; don't wait too long because we will have Preseason Player Evaluations in late-February. The season sometimes creeps up quickly as we are still dealing with holidays and snow when time comes to start digging around for the old glove.

Look out for additional emails in the Winter - we are already working with area baseball and softball programs to offer more clinics and workouts prior to the upcoming season. If you haven't had enough baseball or softball yet, area programs still have Summer Camps available, see a full listing here: www.skilestest.com/Site/News/Id/23805
Skiles Test does not have baseball and softball in the Fall, but we do support area leagues that do. Whether you chose baseball, softball, or another sport you can reference details from our area leagues here: www.skilestest.com/Site/Community/Affiliated-Leagues
Thank you for your dedication and participation at Skiles Test Youth Baseball and Softball.
