Demolition and construction of three new concession buildings is underway.  The 40 year old building near Bronco is gone, and the new building should take several months to complete.  During construction we will operate concessions from a POD trailer next to the main batting cages.  With restrooms also gone, the county has provided three porta-potties near the Bronco outfield fence between the three north-end fields. Construction of the football concession building should begin in August, and the building near Pinto should begin around the end of the year. We regret the inconvenience during this construction phase, but look forward to the new buildings. 

East Side Baseball Concussion Policy

East Side Baseball Association (ESBA) recognizes that adolescent athletes are particularly vulnerable to the effects of concussions. 
To comply with the passage of House Bill 284, and to ensure the ongoing safety of our youth athletes, ESBA has adopted the following protocols effective January 1, 2014:
  • Prior to the beginning of each athletic season, an informational sheet emphasizing the risks of concussions shall be distributed to the parents/guardians of all youth athletes.
  • Any youth athlete who participates in youth athletics and exhibits signs of a concussion must be removed from the game, practice, competition or tryout and be evaluated by a health care provider
  • Any youth athlete who is deemed by a health care provider as having sustained a concussion shall not be permitted to return to play until he/she receives clearance from a health care provider for a full or graduated return to play.​
