It's with pride and a bit of sadness that I'm saying goodbye to WC Little League. After 2 years as President I'm stepping down to concentrate on other endevors. My one goal as President was to ensure that all kids got a chance to play as much as possible. I think that I achieved that as much as possible and proved that developing a deep league pays off as we dominated the TOC this year in District 4 (15 leagues).
I wanted to thank all the great volunteers that I've worked with over these two years, all the great parents that I've met and all the great kids that I've coached. I wanted to single out 2 people to thank for going above and beyond the last 2 years:
The incoming President will be selected at the 7:00 PM General Meeting at WCI on September 18th. The public is urged to attend to hear the state of the league and elect the incoming President and Board Members.
I won't be totally gone, I'll be the Schedule Maker again and will be coaching AAA in 2020.
We're ramping up for the 2020 Baseball and Softball seasons. We expect registration to open on the web site in October 2019 and run through December.

Byron Beckes, Walnut Creek Little League legend, has passed away. Byron managed the Angels Majors team for over 25 years, coached dozens of All-Star teams and supported the league in various Board Member capacities as well. Byron is survived by his wife Jutta, who has been the long time Treasurer of WCLL.
Byron’s Angel teams were known as being fundamentally sound, played great defense and one of the teams that always seem to be in contention to win the league title. No matter the outcome Byron asked his players two things. “Did you give 100% effort?”, “Did you have fun?” Bryon gave WCLL 100% of his effort and we know he had fun coaching. Thank you Byron, you will be missed.
Board meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month in the Staff Room of Walnut Creek Intermediate (see map below). They begin at 7:30pm.
Parent Volunteers are at the heartbeat of the league. We have several key positions that we would love to see filled for the 2019-2020 season. If you want to pair up with a fellow parent, the more the merrier! We are simply looking to expand the number of volunteers we have to provide the best experience we can for the kids!
Just a friendly reminder that all team pages are kept private as a safety precaution for your children. Parents do have access to their teams pages, you simply need to log into the website (login you use to register at the beginning of the season) in order to have visibility to the game and season stats.
