**Your Team/League is in the BLUE Balloon Division** Arrival Information
All parade participants (PLAYERS & COACHES ONLY) should meet at Schaefer Circle – outside of Gates D & E and behind the Home Plate Plaza – at 10:45 AM, in uniform and ready to go.
Your team should report to the BLUE balloons for parade line-up.
Coaches are required to wear a uniformed shirt or hat to participate in the parade. Only three (3) coaches
are permitted to accompany each team.
Parents, siblings, friends, etc. are NOT permitted in the parade line. When the gates open at 11 AM, we ask that parents and others go directly inside the ballpark to view the parade. Parents should remain inside the ballpark upon the conclusion of the parade; no re-entry will be permitted.
Because of our dirt warning track, the pre-game parade is weather-permitting. Please note though that every effort will be made to hold the parade as scheduled.
Per our ballpark guidelines, no hard-sided coolers, glass bottles or cans are permitted inside the gates.
Only uniformed players and coaches are permitted to participate in the parade.
Cleats are not permitted in the parade.
Participants should remain on the “Warning Track” at all times during the parade. No one is permitted on the grass at any time. Participants who violate this rule will be removed from the parade.
Autograph seeking is strictly PROHIBITED.
We ask that participants refrain from any still photography during the parade. Unfortunately, time does not allow for stopping to take pictures, and we must keep the parade moving in order to start the game on time. Family members who are in the seating bowl are encouraged to take pictures or video.
Make sure that each team member and coach has a ticket so they can enter through the ballpark turnstiles after the parade. **Coaches, please be sure to escort your team members back to their families at this time.

From the Orioles:
We are going to hold a second Youth Baseball and Softball Parade presented by Nike before the 1:05 pm makeup game on July 13. We are hosting this second date as a thank you to the kids and families who came out to march today, as well as to provide an opportunity for those fans unable to attend today due to the weather. Tickets and prepaid parking passes for today’s postponed game will be automatically honored for the 1:05 p.m. game on July 13 and do not need to be exchanged. Fans with Youth Baseball and Softball Day tickets are strongly encouraged to attend the make-up game at 1:05 p.m. on July 13.
We also want to provide the kids who participate in the Youth Baseball and Softball Day parade on July 13 with a complimentary kids hotdog and kids Pepsi product or water. Additional information on this offer will be communicated soon.

Parents~ Little League Baseball has implemented a new bat rule for the safety of young players (12 years old and under). All organizations are being mandated to conform to this rule. We are currently updating our web sites rules. Moving forward the league has purchased one new "USA Baseball" bat per team. We are not expecting parents to run out and by a new bat. However, if you are buying a new bat you need to make sure it has the "USA Baseball" stamp on it. Players can practice with their old bats, as long as the coach approves, but only "USA Baseball" stamped bats be permitted in games. The link below shows an example of the bat stamp and explains more details about it.
NOTE~ Colt (16-18 years old) players must use BBCOR. Pony (13-15 years old) have the option to use USA bats or BBCOR. Sorry for the confusion, this is a learning process.
18U must use BBCOR (So, all bats must be -3)
15U can use BBCOR or USA Bat.
12U and under all must be USA Bat.
Lake Shore Youth Baseball
Now thru December!!!!
Moving forward and staying on task with all the Little League organizations in Anne Arundel County, Lake Shore Baseball has decided to change the birth date cut-off. Above are the birth date ranges which utilize the 8/31 birthdate cutoff. They are the new Little League dates that are already in effect. They coincide with the school year which is actually, our main reason for making the change so kids in the same school grade/year will play together.
Thank you for your support in making this transition possible!
Matt has, played baseball for over 13 years, always at Lake Shore, starting when he was 4 years old in Tee- Ball and playing every season to his senior year. Matt is a perfect example of a “Scholar athlete” making Honor Roll every marking period, and earning the highest GPA award this past fall, a 5.0! Along with baseball, he has also played Basketball and was the team captain of the high school varsity football team. Matt has been accepted and will attend UMBC in the fall, where he plans to pursue a Bachelors degree in computer science and coding. Please help me congratulate Chesapeake Senior Matt Blades!
