Baseball registration coming soon

The boys and girls of summer are itching to take to the field again

From the desk of Oceanside Minor Baseball president Mike Parlow, a reminder to parents of players that in-person registration for the 2012 season will be available Feb. 18-19 at Save-On Foods in Wembley Mall from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“If your child is new to baseball, please bring their birth certificate.”

In other news, Parlow says OMB is proud to announce the creation of a new Bantam AAA team.

It will be for the North Island, and Parlow explains, adding in a merger with Port Alberni, Comox Valley, Campbell River, and Powell River, the team will compete in the BC Minor Bantam AAA league.

“The Parksville Royals have lent their support to this effort and will be involved in team selection and coaching support,” said Parlow.

The Royals announced previously that the local Premier League club will not be fielding a Junior team for the 2012 season.

“Oceanside has been involved in this league in past and we continue to support our players’ involvement in Bantam AAA,” said Parlow, adding, “for those players who enjoyed the level of competition they experienced in Bantam or Peewee summer ball and wish they could play at that level all season long, AAA is an option you need to investigate. For those players with aspirations to play baseball with the Royals in their high school years, this is an excellent development opportunity.”

The team will be based out of Courtenay and their home field will be Bill Moore Park. It is anticipated that some games may be scheduled at Springwood Park in Parksville as well as in Campbell River and Port Alberni. Parlow said at this time, it appears there will be five Bantam AAA teams on the Island — North Island, Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley and two teams out of Victoria.

All prospective Bantam AAA players are invited to attend winter workouts with the Royals at the Glenwood Sports Center in Port Alberni beginning Jan. 29, from 10:30  a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
