WE NEED COACHES!
The shetland and pinto divisions is in significant need of coaches. Should there not be enough coaches, your child may not be able to play this upcoming season, and your registration fee will be refunded. If you would like to be the head coach of a team to ensure that your child will play baseball this upcoming season, please sign-up during registration with the Shetland of Pinto player agent. Thank You
