Westhills Baseball Wants You!

As we enter the second half of the spring season, it's time to begin planning for next year, including electing members to the Board of Directors.

Westhills Baseball is not part of a local park program, nor does it receive any government funding. Instead, we are a non-profit organization, managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and funded by the registration fees it collects, revenues from the Snack Shack and Sports Store, sponsorships from local businesses, and its other fundraising efforts. However, the most valuable contributions by far to the quality of our program come from the parents and other adults who volunteer their time and energies for the benefit of the boys and girls who play at Westhills Baseball.

If you like what you see at Westhills Baseball and have wondered how you could become more involved in such a good thing, now is your chance to make a difference at our league and in the community by volunteering to help Westhills Baseball be the best it can be.

Elections for next year's Board of Directors will be conducted at the field, on Saturday, May 17th and Sunday, May 18th. If you think you might be interested in joining the Board of Directors, please contact Dave Berens at dberens@roadrunner.com by May 10th. If you would like to know more about our Auxiliary contact Colleen Shapiro at ccshap@gmail.com


Westhills logo  Westhills Baseball Academy Summer Camp

Westhills Baseball Academy in association with Southern California Baseball Academy will be holding our annual summer baseball camp 9am-3pm, July 21-25, for players between the ages of 5-12. 

Players will be separated by age group and will receive an SCBA shirt, hat and sports bottle.  We will cover all aspects of the game and maintain a small player to instructor ratio to ensure everyone receives individual attention.  We know there many baseball camps out there but we make sure our camps are instructional and not just "babysitting."  Our camp offers some of the best instruction in Los Angeles, helping players perfect their skills in hitting, fielding, throwing, and general knowledge of the game.

All programs are lead by Mike Glendenning who played 8 years of professional baseball with the Giants and single years with the Royals and Diamondbacks organizations. Mike has been running our camps for 8 years and you will not find a more professional and structured program for your player.  Coaches include former professional and college baseball athletes.  Program costs are $90 per day or $400 for the week. Additional information on our camp is available at www.SCBAbaseball.org

Calabasas Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics

Calabasas Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics

Special offer for Westhills families! 

Westhills welcomes back Calabasas Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics this spring as a Premier Sponsor.

Dr. Elena Rumack, one of the select few Board-Certified specialists in Pediatric Dentistry and clinical instructor and lecturer at the UCLA Department of Pediatric Dentistry, along with Drs. Dave Pair & Jason Pair, warmly welcome Westhills families to the eco-friendly and state-of-the-art kid’s dental office of Calabasas Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, dedicated to treating the dental needs of children of all ages in a kind and caring manner.

At Calabasas Pediatric Dentistry, kids CAN have fun at the dentist! With overhead TV’s where kids can pick their own movies and big “treasure chest” full of toys, Dr. Rumack feels that if children can have fun while developing a positive dental attitude, the more likely they will have good oral health for the rest of their lives!

New patients from Westhills Baseball will get a free Gum Chucks starter kit and 6 refill packs.  Gum Chucks is the ultimate attack on plaque and the only flossing system of its kind.  Resembling miniature nunchucks, they feature disposable tips that are connected by a piece of dental floss. The unique two-handle system increases dexterity and control allowing patients to easily make the dentist-recommended “C” shape with the floss.

In Memory of Bob Kodama

With great sadness, we announce that on March 26, Bob Kodama, our life time friend and loving coach, passed.  For over 30 years, Bob personified everything any parent could dream of in a coach and mentor, and exemplified all we strive for at our league.  Still indebted to his service and the example he set, our Bronco field was named in his honor.  Bob coached generations of players, including those from his family, and contributed so much to the lives of so many children and families in our community.  He made us all the better for knowing him and spending time with him. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

In remembrance of Coach Bob Kodama, games on the weekend of March 29-30 will start with a moment of silence in honor of his memory and our flag will fly at half staff for the remainder of the season.  Those who knew Bob and want to leave tribute to him may place a flower or note on the fence of the Bronco field.
