There will be a maximum of 6 teams per division, and each team will have a roster of 12.  Practices will begin in April and the season will run thru mid-July. Standings are kept and a division champion is determined.  Each division has a mid-season All-Star game and a championship tournament at the conclusion of the 14 game season, Players pitch the entire game and regulation baseballs are used.  

Players must provide their own glove, spikes (plastic only) and white pants. WAA will provide bats, balls, batting helmets, catcher gear, and bases for each team.  Shirt, hat and socks are included with the registration fee. Practices will begin in April and the season will run thru the mid-July. Teams will participate in an at least 14 game season. Game time is typically 5:45 PM on weeknights in May and 6 PM on weeknights in June and July. Saturday and Sunday game times will vary.
