How do I earn my parent fee back?

 

Your can earn your parent fee back by working 8 hours in the concession stand, helping out on field clean up days or umpiring Pinto games.  You need to make sure that you record the hours worked in the receipt book located in the concession stand on the day worked.  Once you have completed your 8 hours, the treasurer will write you a check and leave it in the concession stand for pick-up (usually this will take 1-2 weeks).


Can I smoke or bring my dog to Whiteford?

 

We ask that you please leave your dogs and cigarettes at home.


I was an assistant coach this season, does that satisfy my parent fee hours?

 

We appreciate parents who are able and willing to help teach baseball to the young people in our community.  It is our hope that they decide to be a coach because they love the game and enjoy working with kids.  Because of this, we don't award parent fee hours for coaching. 


Can I request a coach or request to have my player on the same team as a friend?

 

We allow parents to request a coach or to be on the same team as a friend during registration.  Once the draft is complete (Pinto-Pony), we let the managers know of all requests and ask them to attempt to make trades to accomodate the requests.  Some requests are fulfilled, some are not.  Our goal during the draft process is to make all teams competitive.


Can I get a refund if my player decides not to play?


Although we understand players have different reasons for not wanting to play, we only have so many spots available per level. A 50% refund will be issued before teams are selected. No refund will be selected after teams are selected. 



When and where will practice be held?

 

Practice dates, times and locations are set by each individual manager.  After teams are selected, parents will be contacted by the coach with additional information.
