Congratulations on clinching a spot to the 2018 NCAA Division II Atlantic National Regional (Thursday, May 17th - Monday, May 21st). As host site for this tournament, I wanted to make you aware of a few things prior to you coming to the area. Several things below are specific things to pass onto your team, parents, and fans:
Directions to our location and information about the tournament are on our website (www.westlawnowls.com). Our mailing address is 2324 Monroe Avenue, West Lawn, PA 19609 (for GPS purposes, the city may need to be changed to “Reading”). When using the Google Maps Application on a smart phone, Search for “Owl Sports Club”.
Our Lodging sponsors (Crowne Plaza Reading and the Hampton Inn) information is located on the website as well. Contact the Group Sales Manager and mentioned that you were referred by the West Lawn Owls when booking.
NO COOLERS will be allowed into Owls Field at Ted Palka Park. Only team members may bring coolers into the park.
Owls Field is Lawn Chair seating only.
Parking is located behind the scoreboard in left field: on the street, paved parking lot, and grass lot. If a team is traveling by bus, we will have reserved parking on the field side curb (on Harrison Avenue) directly behind the scoreboard that will continue towards the batting cages.
Our concession stand will be open through the duration of the tournament. We accept CASH and for the first year, CREDIT CARDS. Our concession stand features hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and assorted snacks and drinks. Should your team wish to make a large order due to a doubleheader or otherwise, we ask that you place that order with our concession stand as soon as possible so we can accommodate you as quickly after the completion of your game.
You will also notice an upper and a lower deck connected to the concession stand/pressbox. We ask that NO coaches, players, or team personnel utilize the UPPER DECK. The UPPER DECK is reserved for Owls Sports Club members, volunteers, and their guests. The LOWER DECK is reserved for School Personnel, Scouts, Officials, Media, Medical personnel, and Coaches. Sports Information Directors may utilize the inside of the pressbox if space permits. NO SPIKES should be worn on the lower deck. NO FANS SHOULD BE SITTING IN THESE SECTIONS.
We hope you find your experience at the Owls Field at Ted Palka Park enjoyable. We are looking forward to a great weekend of baseball.
