We're busily getting things in place for the upcoming season and opening day. If you would like to help, particularly in the next few weeks at the main diamond - weeding, raking and cleaning -
get in touch with us! No baseball experience necessary! 


Opening Day for the 2019 season is April 6 at Hastings Community Park. Prior to opening ceremonies we will be holding team and individual photos. Your coach will let you know when to arrive for photos.

COME DRESSED IN UNIFORM: Hat, Jersey, baseball pants, cleats are not necessary. 
BRING YOUR PHOTO ORDER FORM: You will receive this with your uniform. All players receive a team photo - please fill out the form regardless if you will not be ordering individual photos. Photos will go rain or shine! Don't worry - the Tim Horton's truck will be on site with free coffee and hot chocolate! 
STAY FOR LUNCH - All players will receive a hot dog lunch after opening ceremonies. Your child will be gathered with their team and will be served as a team. The concession stand will be open for parents and other family members.
GAMES, GEAR SWAP AND SILENT AUCTION - Be sure to stick around after ceremonies for some fun and games on the Rookie Diamond (Volunteer Field), get a final bid in on our silent auction and watch games on the main diamond all afternoon. There will be cotton candy, popcorn and chances to win candy bags! Bring your used baseball gear and clothing to swap at our gear swap tent (more info below). 

OUR SILENT AUCTION IS NOW LIVE! We're having an online fundraising auction! All teams will be asked to contribute a prize to the silent auction but you're not limited to that - if you or your business would like to donate a prize separately, please let co-ordinator Simon Bond know.


All player uniforms will be available for pickup on March 30, 31 and April 2. Please come to Hastings Community Park with your $50 uniform deposit cheque (Rookie, Minor and Major only). You will also receive a photo order form at that time and are welcome to drop off items for the gear swap too.

We will soon be holding our annual Umpire Clinic on Sunday, March 31st

Umpires are the cornerstone to our League and we're always looking for new recruits. Remember, a game without umpires is just another practice!

Everyone interested in umpiring should attend (including adults!), if you are not able to attend please e-mail umpire@hcll.ca with the name of the player's current division for 2019 and contact information.  

Players are permitted to umpire one division level below were they are playing.

Times and more details to be announced.


Help us capture all the fun this season!
