To all Lincoln Youth Baseball and West Portland Youth Baseball Families and Coaches.
Thank you so very much for your tremendous support this year on our Hit-A-Thon event. In total we raised $34,772. While slightly short of our goal, this level of fundraising is just barely short of our record year in 2019. Absolutely fantastic!
Thank you very much!

Big thanks to Linda Salinsky for keeping track of all this information and organizing our fundraising third party. Big thanks to all of our Coaches for getting their teams to participate fully in the Hit-A-Thon and Picture Day. And HUGE thanks to all of our families for this level of financial support. This will go a LONG way to helping us balance the 2021 books.

LYB/WPYB is currently going through the process of preparing for the 2021 spring season.
With that being said, please understand that the ultimate decision is not up to us, but we’ll be prepared when they say “Play Ball”.
Registration is live in with a $20 deposit, you will not be asked for the balance until we feel we will have the green light to play. We do not anticipate not being able to play this Spring, however we are moving forward with caution.
To be on the safe side, we will not be doing many of the traditional large events this season. If things make a drastic turn for the positive, we may revisit the Hit a Thon, picture day, and League Day. As it stands now we’ll be avoiding large gatherings that are not games, games are currently limited to 50 people with social distancing and mask rules in place. We will plan a virtual Hit A Thon, the players will complete at practice.
The most important thing right now is open communication until we decide to move forward with the season, which will probably be early March. If you could also please let your team friends know just in case they missed any emails or social media posts! We don't want to miss anyone. LYB/WPYB is open to residents all over NW/SW Portland and local area students, not just Lincoln High School bound players.
We have many openings for volunteers, both coaches and board member, remember it takes as many people as we can get to make this a successful season for your players.
Sponsors, we are renewing and accepting new team and league sponsors, all donations are tax deductible. We need as many sponsors as possible, sponsorships available for all amounts.
We hope you are well and making it through these unsettling times. We are almost through this and ready to PLAY BALL!
Since we are living in uncertain times we are opening registration and taking only a $20 refundable deposit to secure a roster spot. The deposit will be refunded if the season is cancelled. We are optimistic the season WILL happen but we feel this is the best way for now. Once the season is confirmed we will send you an invoice to pay in full. Deposit will be non-refundable for families that change their mind and not participate.
Registering NOW helps us plan for a successful season immensely, and secures a spot if we are limited with the number of players we can accommodate!

Coach Mike McCormick finished up the 4th session of the Catching Clinic with some of the Lincoln Youth Baseball catchers. Four sessions of receiving, stance work, blocking, framing and throwing will help these catchers this season.
The first sessions were a great learning experience for all the players. On Wednesday evening, Coach Mike McCormick worked on blocking, footwork, stances, glove placement and throwing.
Saturday Alex Keudell worked with a group of pitchers teaching them about arm care, pitching grips, mechanics, footwork and balance.
These clinics just started and there's still time to participate in more, check out our website to sign up now.

Tonight was the opening night of the Lincoln Youth Baseball Hitting Facility. For 2 hours Coach Watson worked with 20 players from the 11U and 12U Select teams. The focus was on offense and the players worked on different skills rotating in and out of the 4 lanes.
Looking forward to 3 more months of off-season workouts to get ready for the 2020 Spring Season.
