40th Annual Mal Walton Junior Varsity Baseball Tournament - 2022

Lynden High School Parent/Player Helper Sign-up

Since 1981 the Lynden High School Baseball Program has hosted the Mal Walton Junior Varsity Baseball Tournament, a season ending tournament for freshmen and sophomore baseball players from local high schools. Go to http://www.lyndenbaseball.com/page19 to read about the history of this great tournament. Lynden High School has hosted this tournament each year. One thing that is needed each year is parent helpers to help us run this great tournament. The coaching staff and players take care of all the field work. Where we need your help is running the concession stand and taking tickets at the gate. Games will be played on each field at 2, 4, and 6 o’clock Friday and 10, 12, and 2:45 on Saturday.

I would love to have at least 2 parents in the concession stand during the entire tournament and at least one parent taking tickets. 

The concession stand would need two workers these shifts:

Friday from 1:30 - 4:30 _____________________ and _______________________

Friday from 4:30 - 7:30 _____________________ and _______________________

Saturday from 9:30 - 1:00 _____________________ and ______________________

Saturday from 1:00 - 4:00 _____________________ and ______________________

The ticket taker, which would be located close to the concession stand, is a person who would be collecting admission to the tournament. Their shifts would be:

Friday from 1:30 - 4:30 _____________________

Friday from 4:30 - 7:30 _____________________

Saturday from 9:30 - 12:30 ____________________

Saturday from 12:30 - 3:00 ____________________

We also need to have an announcer at each game to announce the starting lineups, announce who is batting each inning, and to also play music between innings. This can be players but will need to be parents when Lynden is playing. The following times are:

Game Field                                                            Practice Field

Gm1 Fri 2:00 ___________________                   Gm2 Fri 2:00 ___________________

Gm3 Fri 4:00 ___________________                   Gm4 Fri 4:00 ___________________

Gm5 Fri 6:00 ___________________                   Gm6 Fri 6:00 ___________________

Gm7 Sat 10:00 ___________________                 Gm8 Sat 10:00 ___________________

Gm9 Sat 12:00 ___________________                 Gm10 Sat 12:00 ___________________

Gm11 Sat 2:45 ___________________                 Gm12 Sat 2:45 ___________________

These are shifts that I really need the parents of the freshmen and sophomores to help us out with. The Varsity Team begins the post-season on the Saturday of the Mal Walton Tournament so the parents of the Varsity players will be down in Anacortes cheering the team on. You can see the field from the concession stand and also from where we take tickets. Please respond to me at whitec@lynden.wednet.edu to let me know if you can help out the Lynden Baseball Program at the tournament. I know there have been parents wanting to help us in our fundraising efforts and this is a great opportunity. Thanks so much for your help!!!
