Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt 4/19 at Finksburg Public Library

The Roaring Run Lions Club is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday April 19th on the grounds of the Finksburg Library at 11 am.  All Children ages 9 and under are welcome to participate.  No registration necessary.  For questions regarding the event, please ask Steve Auerback by clicking here.

Registration Closed and Season Preparations Begin

Registration for the 2014 Season is now closed.  Teams have been assembled and coaches have reached out to players or should be reaching out to you soon.  If you have questions, please reach out to your coach or your age group coordinator (see contact list on our website).  There are a few important announcements about this season:

  • Opening Day is scheduled for April 12 (again, weather permitting).  Most if not all games will be scheduled at Roaring Run that day.  A full schedule and description of the days events will be out soon.
  • This year we have incorporated inter-league play down to the Minor League Divisions between Finksburg and Westminster Baseball.  The Westminster youth baseball organization has dropped its Little League affiliation and with some minor changes on both sides, we have worked out a common set of on-field rules.  This will provide our players with an opportunity to see more teams, to win a divisional championship and to win a World Series between the two organizations.  We are also looking into the possibility of an inter-league All-Star Game at the conclusion of the season.  
  • Finksburg Baseball is always in need of sponsors or donors.  Our newly created tax status via our affiliation with Friends of Carroll Recs and Parks provides potential donors an opportunity to make a tax deductible contribution to our league.  Finksburg Baseball is an independent organization that receives no funding for its general operations from Carroll County.  The fields at Roaring Run are privately owned and all expenses to operate them come from donations, sponsors, registration fees and the concession stand proceeds.  Anyone interested in making a donation or becoming a sponsor may click here for more details.

As always, thank you for choosing Finksburg Baseball and we look forward to another great season.
