We are holding our annual free Winter Warmup clinic on Saturday December 15th at 10am. Please mark it on your calendar!
To help us gauge attendance please RSVP.
This 1 hour clinic/walkthrough is available for all new or returning 7, 8, 9 year olds (and 10 year olds new to tryouts). We will review basic skills – throwing, fielding and catching, and if time permits hitting. Then we will run through a mock try out sequence. The goal is to help players feel more comfortable going into the player evaluation weekends in early January.
We will meet at Robert Mason fields (next to Golden Gate Rec Center) on San Pablo Ave at 63rd Street in north Oakland on Saturday December 16th at 10am. We plan to go for 1 hour (if we have a high turnout we may go 1.5 hours). Rain will cancel (anything showers up to 24 hours prior). Players should bring a glove, bat and helmet. We will bring baseballs.
We need volunteers to help run our Spring tryouts in January. Please sign up and help out.
If you have friends and family who have not signed up for the Spring 2019 season, please remind them that the competitive division registration deadline is coming up soon – it closes on December 21st (TBall and Farm open until early January).

We are very proud of our Juniors and Seniors All-Star teams – both were 2018 Northern California champions. The Seniors finished in 3rd place in the Western Region and the Juniors were in 4th place in the Western Region. What a great run for the coaches and players on these teams. Our teams are proud to represent Oakland, District 4 and Northern California.
Special thanks to our dedicated managers, Steve Paltiel (Seniors) and Johnny Seal (Juniors) and all of their support staff – it takes a dedicated team of volunteers and parents to make this happen!
