Happy summer everyone and hope this announcement finds you all well and healthy. After several conversations within our board members, members from within our league, public officials, other league members, Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Commissioners, etc. Northwest Baseball will be opening our fields for spring rec teams for practices only starting June 2, 2020. We will be strongly enforcing the following guidelines and we are asking that all parents, guardians, coaches, etc please go over these with your player/s.
- No teams allowed in complex without prior approval from Tammie Rankin-Gerecke through email only, please do not text (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Only 1 parent/guardian per player allowed in the complex at this time for practices
- Absolutely no seeds or gum allowed in the complex
- No food is allowed in the dugouts
- No physical contact, no high fives, no handshakes
- Must try to keep a social distance between players and coaches
- Wash hands as much as possible
- Face masks optional
The restrooms behind the snack bar in between fields 6 & 7 will be the only ones open at this time. Only 1 person allowed at a time.
There are some teams that the coach and/or players had other summer commitments. We will be reaching out to those teams that need coaches in the next couple days to see if another parent would like to help. If no other parent is available, We will find a coach for those teams.
At this time, we do not have a date when games will start. It is the parent’s decision if they want to continue to have their child participate. If your child or any others in your family shows signs of being sick (fever, cough, body aches, etc) please keep them home.
If you have decided, you would like to take one of the credit options or have any questions please send the request and/or question to email@example.com. Also, if you have requested a credit and things have changed and you would now like to participate please send an email to above as well.
We would like to thank the team sponsors that have reached out to us and given us what they would like us to do with their sponsor. Coaches, If you have not reached out to your team sponsor yet please do so. If your sponsor would like their check returned to them, please have them send an email with their mailing address requesting the check returned to them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We greatly appreciate your team sponsors.
Greatly appreciate all of your support and the wonderful emails we have received.

The scoreboards are working and ready to use. We ask that only adults operate them. They are $900 each to replace. Watch the video and it will walk you step by step on how to use the controller. When your game is over please return and plug the controller in the room behind the bathrooms. You will see a table where they are stored. Good luck this Spring.
Northwest Baseball has been dealing with some internet issues, and that's why our cams have been down for the Fall season. Spectrum doesn't offer service on our side of Chester, so we have had to get creative to make this happen. Prime Time Signs has let us install service, and American Business Machines is helping us fix this problem free of charge. We are hoping to have our camera network for games up and running soon.
WE HOPE TO HAVE OUR GAME CAMS BACK SOON!
**Northwest Baseball has gone high tech! If you have loved ones who won't be able to make the tournament, we have you covered! If your team plays on fields 5,6,7,8 they will be live each day. The fee to watch the games is FREE, but donations are accepted on the camera page and helps with our streaming costs! All you have to do is go to the LIVE CAM tab at the top of our website and select your field.
*NOTE: We will not take calls or emails about plays you may disagree with on our feeds, the umpires are the last call!!
Thanks for joining us at Northwest Bakersfield Baseball!
The Northwest Baseball Spring season is about to kick off! The players have their gear, but do you??? Well look no more, we are now offering Northwest Baseball apparel!! A portion of each purchase will go right back to the league! We will be adding items later in the season!
