Mandatory Uniform Sizing, Equipment Inspection, Cookie Dough Fundraiser & Spiritwear


This evening is mandatory for all players and will be held in the downstairs lobby of Erickson Hall (in front of the gym) at WCC. In the parking lot, follow the signs to the Fitness Center and that will take you in the door to the lobby. Due to space restrictions, teams will be staggered. Please meet up as a team outside on the sidewalk 10 minutes before your start time, so the team can go through the process together.

12U - 7:00pm
14U - 7:20pm
16U ST- 7:40pm
16U SK- 8:00pm
18U - 8:20pm

RETURNING PLAYERS - you must bring both your purple button-down and black pull-over jerseys, helmet and bat bag for inspection. If any of these items fail the inspection, you will need to purchase that new item. 2 pair of pants, 2 pair of socks and the new alternate jersey is included in your registration fees. You can also purchase additional uniforms pieces as well.

NEW PLAYERS - WELCOME and just come as you are.

ALL PLAYERS - we will have sample uniform pieces for you to try on. It's very important to PLEASE confirm the size of each and every component of the uniform as once they are handed out, that's it.


A sampling of freshly baked cookies and caramel corn will be kicking off our annual All-Thunder Savory Foods Fundraiser which consists of selling cubes of cookie dough, gourmet caramel corn and fudge cakes as well as bundt cakes. Participation is of course optional but it’s one of those fundraisers where individual profit will be tallied by player for credit towards their 2015 World Series expense. The player sales brochures and all fundraising details will be distributed on evening of 9/18. If you want a sneak preview of all the products for sale you can visit http://www.savoryfoods.com
