PRESIDENT’S REPORTS



President’s Report - Anthony Marusco


Last month we had designer bag bingo.  It was very successful event.  All tickets were sold.  Captured $2500.00.  

Fall Ball Update: Makeup rainouts.  We would like to play the games on Saturdays. Difficult to play when kids are on the football teams and soccer.  Lots of compromising.  Umpires have been fine.  One coach has been difficult during games.  

CPR- looking for an early spring session.  Board and coaches.  Feb/March Timeframe.  

Babe Ruth have started in 2018.  It will be a wood type bat.  A list will be put out relatively soon.  Bat may only be allowed for this upcoming season.  Think about the bat before buying them.  

Looking to correct our Minor field.  Met with the Blue rocks maintenance guy.  Looking to get the fields leveled.

Thank Michael, Todd, Joe and Cory for their time and hard work.  Anthony wishes you the best.

OLD BUSINESS



 

NEW BUSINESS

Can I address the board please?  Jeff Vickers

You should be ashamed of yourselves.  I just want to help finish my sons last year as an assistant coach.  I was thrown out of a game.  I was reinstated.  I have heard rumors.  I will sit on that bench unless the police pull me off the bench.  As a board you have taken away for my kids last year.  It is hearsay and lies.  Three pages of violations.  I haven’t slept in two weeks.  I care about the kids.  I teach them winter, spring, and summer.  Leave me alone and leave my kid out of this.  I am a baseball guy.  I want one year.  20 parents called him up and said what can we do?  I just want to coach my sons last year.  When Ken is off being a TV superstar.  I appreciate the parents that stand behind me.  I want to be remembered.  I am going to do it.  I will coach.  The stuff I heard I would lose my job if those this were true.  The lies that followed me here are lies.



Paul Mullen, Vickers was my kids coach last year.

I have been involved for the last 19 years.

He is a great coach.

They know the routine and respect the game.

I feel like that a lot of kids have learned a lot from him.  What he did with those 12 kids it has benefited all of them.  



Ed Vitale:

I have coached beside this man since our kids have been five years old.  He has the most knowledge.  It is about the kids and not about him.  That man has done nothing but that.  I don’t know what rumors that you have heard.  I have known him for 7 years.  Tossed out of game for asking a question.  I don’t know why asking a question is wrong.



Colleen Smith:

My son has been on his team for 2 years.  When her son heard that he could not coach any longer he cried.  Her son wanted to come and talk.


Carl

I played under Jeff for 4 years at Penn State and he has done a lot for me.


Gary Dougherty:

I had the pleasure of being taught by Jeff.  He has taught me to be a better coach.  By the time they get to the majors they should be able to throw a ball.  Who on the board was there for the two games?  Todd Kirk raised his hand.  If that is what you are holding over this guy then you should reconsider.


Dave Locke:

Last year was the first year that my son was coached.  I am dumbfounded that we are standing here having this conversation.  I was there and saw the call.  I would love for the board to tell you why they were saying no.  I think it is totally obsurd.  If it was about the kids you would put the guys here.  


Bruce Hemingway:

Last season was my first season here at Aston Valley and we had parents who verbally assaulted and got a slap on the wrist.  Coaches were convicted felons.  You guys make me sick.  You guys are sick.  



Anthony Marusco:

Based on the issues that were faced last year.  As the new incoming president I am trying to put procedures into place to make it better.  I am and the board are trying to start over.  No one has been thrown out of our league.  He is a member and his kid is playing at Aston Valley.  The decision that was made was based on events that have occured only at Aston Valley.  


Jeff Vickers:  Am I the first person to be voted down as an assistant?   The umpire threw the money in the air.  I walked to my car.  



Joe Hart: I was at the game at Weir Park. And the way that you spoke to the umpire.  You were within 8 inches of the umpire’s face.  You backed down the third base line.  “What did you say to the kids the next day to explain what happened?”  You were ejected from the game and you wouldn’t leave the game.  



Anthony Marusco:

I think what Joe Hart is trying to get across is what did you tell your kids.  


Gary Dougherty:

Did anyone address the Angels coaches for the kids?  



Jeff Vickers:

I am coaching my last year with my son.  It is our father son time.  For people who don’t know me.  I want this to end.  I want to sit on the bench and keep the book.  Not enough votes.  Lots of problems with the board.  

Husband and Wife


Here is a little nugget to remember me by.  There was a board member that had an umpire throw me out to take over my district team that won states.  


This is so important to me.  I haven’t slept, haven’t eaten.  I am sitting on that bench to be with my son on that first game.  If all of these people who spoke up about me it should mean something.  I am coaching on the field next time.  The lies will stop tonight.  The things that I heard that is personal.  I am a man of my word.  I don’t want you to revote.  I am looking forward to being an assistant.  


John Marantino: I was the head coach of the team against you and I thought that it was a very quick ejection.  I am not here for him or against him.  He did help in the winter clinic.  


John Howe: A guy gets thrown out in the MLB. If you argue


Jeff Vickers: I am not threatening you.  Nowhere in your bylaws does it say that you vote on assistant coaches.  I want one year with my son.  He is having a hard time.  


Anthony Marusco:  How many times were you throw out over your career?  


Jeff Vickers: Three times.  Once in a district game, once in college and once in Aston Middletown.  The inhouse game was overturned by Bob Clarke.  

 

Colleen Smith: He asked to speak to his pitcher and then he got kicked out.  And he got kicked out for raising his hand.  


Jeff Vickers


Joe Hart: What did the kids learn from him getting thrown out?


Bruce Hemingway: The kids were explained that the call was made wrong.  He explains throughly to each and every kids what they did right and what they did wrong and what he did right and what he did wrong.  In regards to Angels were they explained to by the coaches.


Jeff Vickers: Teachers teach.  They teach life lessons not just baseball lessons.   Do you think I like being thrown out of the game.  I want this done. I don’t want to bad mouth you.  I will be keeping the books.  If you need to call the police.  


Michael Grady:  You have coached twenty games.  You have been thrown out twice  I Districts you were thrown out again.  I have not looked at any results.  I am looking at what is happening while you were wearing our colors.  


Jeff Vickers: Let me enjoy my son’s last year.  


Steve Chapman:  I don’t agree with the decisions the board makes and I address it with people individually.  When you are told you are If we voted the board and don’t then we are nothing as an organization.  That is not the right way to do it.  



Anthony Marusco: I am going to have the board having a discussion about it and we will discuss what was discussed here tonight and I will bring to you about what takes place.  I will contact you personally.  


Fran Miles: Everything is negativity.  Let us discuss it and if we were wrong we were wrong.
