The Experience We-Ha Podcast: PLAY BALL … with West Hartford Youth Baseball League

By Jeff Lovanio

In the Major Leagues, pitchers and catchers will report to spring training camp in about a month, which means baseball fever is already catching fire! With that in mind, West Hartford Youth Baseball League (WHYBL) is already gearing themselves up for spring ball which is also right around the corner and registration is now open.

Ryan and Jeff had the opportunity to sit down with WHYBL President Rob Hanawalt and Board member and coach of spring and travel teams Pat Cooney to talk about what’s in store this year as the league comes into full swing in April.  They provide the details of how the league handles learning and progressing through the ages, coaching and parenting, and about the great community of WHYBL which creates a rewarding experience for all involved.
