***** FIELDS CLOSED ***** NO GAMES *****
The city just made the call - too much standing water on the fields. They are locking the gates & nobody is allowed in the facility tonight. Sorry guys! This rain is so desperately needed but it sure is causing a bit of a Little League headache! Enjoy the night off. All of tonight's AAA games will be moved a week to next Thursday, the 28th, time pending.

We, as a league, have 275 General admission tickets and 215 Outfield reserve (left field) tix reserved. With 46 teams, that's just over 10 per team! Some teams will likely order way more than 10, while other teams may order none. Just to be safe, best to get your orders in ASAP! Final deadline for ticket money is Monday, May18th. It gets turned in to Nikki - contact info on this photo/flier. *TEAM MOMS* Please handle all orders for your team and turn one big team order in, rather then each family turning their own individual order in to Nikki. Thanks!!

I did not write this, but I could have. And I would feel safe assuming the majority of our managers would echo it, as well. We love what we do! It's a TON of work, but we also get to enjoy the reward of celebrating these kid's victories first-hand. We said yes. Not because we were the most qualified or had near-professional talent and too much free time, but because we love the pride we feel in 'our kids' - all 12 of them. Please be patient with out imperfections & try not to criticize & nit-pick unless you are also willing to say 'yes' when the call goes out.

 

****Today I heard a comment made about me behind my back. I started to turn around and look, but then decided better of it and kept my eyes on the field. My wife hears things like this more often than I do, because many of you don’t know who she is. She tells me what you say. I have received angry emails, full of “suggestions,” about who should be playing where and how I… lost that day’s game for the kids. I thought I’d write an open letter to all of you parents, even though I might never send it. I’ll start it this way: “I am a volunteer.”

I’m the one who answered the call when the league said they didn’t have enough coaches. I understand that you were too busy. I have some news for you. I’m not retired. I’m busy too. I have other children and a job, just like you do. Not only do I not get paid to do this – it costs me money. I see you walk up to the game 15 minutes after it started, still dressed for work. Do you know I’ve already been here over an hour? Imagine if you had to leave work early nearly every day. I’ve never seen you at a practice. I’m sure you’re plugging away at the office. But I’m out here, on the field, trying my best to teach these children how to play a sport they love, while my bank account suffers.

I know. I make mistakes. In fact, maybe I’m not even that great of a coach. But I treat the kids fairly and with respect. I am pretty sure they like coming to my practices and games, and without me or someone like me, there’d be no team for them to play on. I’m part of this community too and it’s no picnic being out here on this stage like this. It’s a lot easier back there with the other parents where no one is second-guessing you.

And I also know you think I give my son or daughter unfair advantages. I try not to. In fact, have you ever considered that maybe I’m harder on him than on the others? I’m sure he hears plenty of criticism at school from classmates, who hear it from you at home, about what a lame coach I am. And if, even unconsciously, my kids are getting a slight advantage because I know them better and trust their abilities, is that the worst thing in the world, considering the sacrifice I’m making? Trust me, I want to win too. And if your son or daughter could guarantee we’d do that, I’d give them the chance.

After this game is over, I’ll be the last one to leave. I have to break down the field, put away all the equipment and make sure everyone has had a parent arrive to pick them up. There have been evenings when my son and I waited with a player until after dark before someone came to get them. Many nights I’m sure you’ve already had dinner and are relaxing on the couch by the time I finally kick the mud off my shoes and climb into my car, which hasn’t been washed or vacuumed for weeks. Why bother cleaning it during the season? Do you know how nice it would be if, just once, after a game one of you offered to carry the heavy gear bag to my car or help straighten up the field?

If I sound angry, I’m not. I do this because I love it and I love being around the kids. There are plenty of rewards and I remind myself that while you’re at the office working, your kid is saying something that makes us all laugh or brings a tear to my eye. The positives outweigh the negatives.

I just wish sometime those who don’t choose to volunteer their time would leave the coaching to the few of us who do.

A note from our scheduler re: the rained-out games:

Hi All, 

**AAA Games that were cancelled on Saturday will be made up on Saturday, May 30th, at 2 pm.  This is the day of Carson High School Graduation and the Aces Day.  Graduation is from 10 to Noon and the Aces play in the evening.  This should be able to fit into most/all people’s schedules regardless of commitment.

Giants @ Mariners on Field 2 at 2 pm
Cardinals @ Dodgers on Field 3 at 2 pm
Red Sox @ Rockies on Field 4 at 2 pm
Angels @ Yankees on Field 5 at 2 pm

**Seniors games from this past Saturday will not be made up unless there is a compelling reason to schedule later on down the road.  All Seniors teams should still have 20+ games on their schedule.

**Majors games are pending. They will be announced at a later date.

Thank you for your cooperation.
-Robert

Here it is!!! The PHOTO SCHEDULE! Photos will be inside at our Indoor Facility on Opening Day, April 18th. Please have your team meet there at least 15 minutes early so you're all there & ready to start shooting right at your time slot. With 46 teams this is a LOOOOONG day for our photographer, so please help keep it as smooth as possible by not being late. If all your kids are not there ready to go at your time, they will take your team photo anyway & your player will be left out of the team shot. Thank you!!

 Bad news folks... it looks like some people were not respecting the request to go easy on the infield grass as it was being re-sodded - one of the field's fresh-laid sod got pretty trampled yesterday. Thank you to those that *did* honor the request, but unfortunately the city was not happy & decided to CLOSE THE ENTIRE COMPLEX through Sunday. NO PRACTICES WHATSOEVER! When the city's maintenance crew leaves at 3:30 the gates will be locked to avoid drop-ins that may not see this message. TBall/Coach Pitch fields are OPEN. Thank you, and my apologies to the teams that are losing practice time.

===============================================================

 

posted 4/6/2015

If your team is opting to practice this week (Single-A & above) please see the following message from the city:

"Just an FYI, we will be taking advantage of the down time of spring break week and be doing some re-sodding to the infields of #2,#3,#4 starting today. We will be cutting old areas out and prepping the next two days with sod being put down on Wednesday. Could you please pass this on to coaches and have them try to keep player impact on these areas to an absolute minimum if they are going to be out there this week. We have completed the new pitching mound on Field #1 and have placed clay bricks in all right handed batter’s boxes of all fields."

I am working on formatting the game schedules for this site - in the mean time, the full TBall through Majors schedule is available on our Facebook page (see link at top of page) - and all managers have received it via email. Thank you for your patience!

Thank you to all those that came out for our umpire clinic tonight. We apologize for the confusion on the start time and location. Thanks for hanging in there! The clinic continues tomorrow (Tue, 3/17)... If you didn't make it tonight please join us tomorrow & if you *were* there tonight, we hope to see you tomorrow, too! LOL Please join us in the umpire room (between fields 2 and 3) @ 6:30. There'll be a classroom portion followed by some on-field time at a Jr./Sr. scrimmage out on field 6. DRESS WARM!

TBall & Coach Pitch Managers - you should have all been contacted individually by now, but I'm posting this as a reminder for you as well as an FYI for parents still waiting on a phone call!

THIS SUNDAY, 3/15, at 4:00pm is our TB/CP managers meeting @ out Indoor Facility. This is where team rosters & hats will be handed out. Managers will also choose their practices times & may begin as soon as Monday! Parents - expect to be contacted soon!

***ALSO - Don't forget TONIGHT is our scorekeeper clinic for all of our main-field teams. If you are a Single-A or older team, you are REQUIRED to have a scorekeeper at every single game. Tonight is the night to learn how! Please come join us at 6:00pm. West Side Pour House, 110 W Telegraph St. in the back room.

2 things:

**TBall/Coach Pitch managers - your managers meeting (where you'll receive your rosters & hats) will be this Sunday, the 15th, at 4:00pm in our Indoor Facility. You should be receiving an email shortly.


******ALSO****** Parents, grandparents, friends, coaches, etc... We have our Scorekeepers Clinic set for this Friday, 3/13. Time & location TBA (evening), but please place it on your calendar & plan to attend. EVERY SINGLE TEAM AA & UP must provide a scorekeeper for every game. It's beneficial to have multiple people qualified to keep book in case there are games your regular can't make it to. Parents - come on down! This is a great way to be involved... and the scorekeeper gets the BEST seat in the house - up top in the booth, out of the wind/sun! Please join us!

FIELDS ARE CLOSED TODAY, 3/2/2015!!!

The city just made the call… The fields are too wet to be practiced on today. MANAGERS: If your team was anticipating use of fields today you need to make other arrangements or cancel your practice. I can say that the team signed up for the indoor facility tonight is not beginning until Wednesday, so the indoor facility will be completely empty this evening if managers would like to utilize it. However, we cannot designate for one individual team… It would be open for all.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 MAKE-UP TRYOUTS ARE STILL ON!!

Rather than on the fields, we will hold them inside our indoor facility. See you in there!

posted 2/25/2015

We apologize for the short notice, but there will be
NO OPEN GYM tonight (2/25).
We are using the facility to accommodate tryouts for some of our kids that are in wrestling tournaments last weekend & this coming weekend.
Please let your friends know!
Thank you!

A note for our 13-16 year old kids...

If you tried out for the high school team this weekend and found out today that you didn't make it, you can still play ball with us! We intentionally set the older kids' tryout date a week behind so we could catch those still wanting to play baseball. Please come down to the indoor facility tonight (2/23) or Wednesday (2/25) between 6:00-7:00 to get signed up. The fee is $90. Please also bring a birth certificate and utility bill so we can verify residency and age.
Your tryouts are this Saturday (2/28) from 12:00-2:00.

We have broken it down by age. Please see below so you know when to arrive.

11 year old: 10:00
10 year old: 11:30
9 year old: 1:00
8 year old: 2:30


Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to get checked in & warm up. Bring your bat, helmet, mitt & water (we will have helmets available, if needed) - a hat is also a good idea, as the sun should be shining! Each player will receive a few grounders & fly balls (and field them appropriately) and they will also hit a few pitches & run on the last one. All managers, please plan to be there to observe/rate players that fall into your division's age group.


**If you cannot make it to this tryout the make-ups will be next Saturday, the 28th starting at 9:00. We'll take everyone as they come & be done as soon as we can, so if you need to attend the makeup please get there as close to 9:00 as you can so we don't miss you. Thanks!
