Anyone have any feedback in regards to little league baseball in tampa?

PONY -

Wellswood / Forest Hills / North Tampa

Or Little League?

How about Travelling teams?

Any information / experiences would be helpful.

My son plays at Wellswood and we have friends who play at North Tampa and Forest Hills. We like Wellswood, its close to home. I do know that Forest Hills and Wellswood pretty much pick their all-star teams even in the Fall and tend to focus on them. I also know both parks have travel teams. What age range are you looking for? That makes a big difference.

I appreciate the feedback. My sons are still young (shetland) and currently play winter ball at North Tampa. We actually went and watched games at both Wellswood and Forest Hills. I was more impressed with Forest Hills fields and coaching, however I have heard alot of good things about wellswood. I completely understand the Allstar teams and how that all works. Time will tell if they get to that point. However, my family is very familiar with the travelling baseball up north and as much as my sons have a passion for it I can almost guarantee they will be competitive. Is there any recommended neighborhoods near Forest Hills? I agree, driving from New Tampa over is going to be more than a hassle. We found a nice house in Bloomingdale within walking distance to the school and fields. But it is a little league team and I'm not up to speed with the Little League system here.

The Bloomingdale area is really nice and i like it much better than New Tampa. I have a friend who lives in lithia which is close by to Bloomingdale and they have some great baseball parks out that way she says. Forest Hills if tough for newer homes. This area is mostly older homes (1960's) but Carollwood is great is you like those older homes and a great neighborhood too. My son played 4 seasons in Shetland at Wellswood. We love it there and have made a lot of good friends. Very family oriented. I am probably biased but I like the fields and stands at our park better than Forest Hills. But everyone who plays there loves it too. So you never know. Our shetland all-star "A" team won a world series - they were awesome.

Considering the number of Pro players, Allstars and hall of Famers that grew up playing in Tampa's little league system I would say wherever your kid goes they will be playing at a high level.
