A message from the President:

Hello Spartan softball families. My name is Joe Knapik and I am the president of Burnt Hills Girls Softball. I wanted to take a minute and welcome all of you to a new season!


My goal and league vision is to create a fun atmosphere for girls to learn skills and develop a “love of the game”! The only way this can happen is with all of your support!!! I appreciate your input, assistance , and most of all your patience. We should have both fields looking great and ready for opening day! Thanks to two major purchases. First, quality infield dirt. Second, a huge investment and necessity, the league purchased a field pro tractor to take care of our fields. Our next major project / improvement will be the expansion and development of our third field! Also, batting cages for the girls.


n order to accomplish this we will NEED your help with our ONE and ONLY fundraiser this year! On opening day each girl will receive 5 raffle tickets for each family to sell. Yes, that’s it just 5, of course you may sell more! With a combined League effort we can achieve our goals !!


We are looking for people to help with fundraising, concessions, a home improvement project to our shed (garage door install), as well as various other things that come up during our season.

Opening Day

On opening day we will have a swap meet for the league where we hope to repurpose gently used equipment! Please bring anything you have: gloves, cleats, pants, etc. !!


There are some items the girls will need to play:

  • Softball glove
  • Pants (sweatpants or softball pant)
  • Laced shoes (cleats are recommended)
  • Fielders mask (recommended, but not mandatory)
  • Helmet (the league has some to loan if necessary)

In closing, I want to Thank “The Softball Board”!!! It’s your hard work and dedication that leads by example!


Please feel free to contact me with any questions. PLAY BALL!!!!!
