Westhills Baseball Wants You!

As we enter the second half of the spring seasonit'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 from 10am-3pm, on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20. If you are interested in joining the Board of Directors, please contact Christina Pompeo by 3pm May 13.

In Memory of Mike Noblitt

Mike Noblitt served our community in too many ways to list. Many of you probably knew him as the nice man behind the grill at our snack shack. Those of us fortunate enough to get to know him on a more personal level had nothing less than the utmost respect for this amazing man. His commitment to our kids, facility, and overall community will never be matched. He truly was the anchor of Westhills and served as our patriarch for many years. To say that he will be sorely missed does not even begin to describe the impact his passing will have on so many people. His presence and legacy is tangible at Westhills from the moment you set foot inside the facility to the moment you sink your teeth into a tri tip or breakfast sandwich. He is responsible for nearly every improvement that we have made to the complex over the last 15 years and created the recipes for all of our grill items. It was common for him to be working his tail off at Westhills from sun up to sun down every weekend during the fall and spring seasons. It will take 10 sets of hard working feet to even begin to fill the giant boots he leaves behind.
