Welcome to the new Wausau Baseball and Fastpitch Softball website!
Our Mission Statement:
To teach our children the fundamental skills of baseball and fastpitch softball, while at the same time, instilling in them values and character that will serve them well in their future endeavors. We are a volunteer driven organization committed to building an appreciation for the games of baseball and fastpitch softball through quality coaching and supportive parental involvement. It is our fundamental belief that every child with a desire to play baseball or fastpitch softball be afforded the opportunity to participate, where the emphasis is not always on winning, but on good sportsmanship, fair play, discipline, safety, teamwork, and most of all…..fun.
Happy Holidays From Wausau Youth Baseball & Softball
Well the snow has fallen and the bats and gloves are, for now, put away anxiously awaiting Spring. The 2014 season was tremendous with 884 kids participating in the various leagues of Wausau Youth Baseball and Fastpitch Softball. Those kids were served by a host of volunteer coaches, managers, board members and other league officials. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and effort to make a difference in a child’s life.
In 2015 we hope that each of you returns to play baseball or softball. I recently read an article that discussed the importance of participation in youth sports for a child’s development. I know that the programs of WYBS are one positive step in that development. Please consider returning to play in 2015 and ask your friends and neighbors to join with you.
I wish to thank the Board of Directors, Player Agents, Managers, Coaches, Umpires and every volunteer that works to make WYBS successful. A special thank you goes out to Jeff Blomquist, who after numerous years of service as a board member, Vice President of Softball and coach/manager retired from WYB&S. Jeff, you have been a great volunteer and ambassador of softball, thank you for everything.
This year we hosted the 11-12 year old Little League State Championships at Doepke Park. It was a terrific showing and provided excellent baseball. I wish to thank Melissa Klade who volunteered to chair the event. Melissa’s efforts and organization made for a terrific tournament experience for all involved.
Additional kudos to Tim Kostroski and his family who have worked tirelessly in maintaining the Doepke Park diamond for many years. It is one of the premier diamonds as a result of Tim's efforts as well as other volunteers of our organization. If anyone has an interest in helping in the maintenance of that diamond, please contact me directly.
Finally, to our players and parents, thank you. I can relate that it may be easier to stay home and not go to the diamond a couple of times a week, but I hope someday you can truly appreciate the benefit and memories you create every time you participate.
Looking forward to seeing you on the field come Spring of 2015. Keep checking our website for upcoming dates.
