The Matawan Aberdeen Babe Ruth league has always and will continue to led by our dedicated volunteers who act as managers, coaches and board members and allow this league to run and teach out children the "American Pastime".
We are currently looking for volunteers to coach at all levels of the league, but in particular, in the Tee Ball and Pitching Machine age groups.
We are also looking for prospective Board Members to keep the league running efficiently and plan for the future to ensure the league remains financially sound, while continuing to make the necessary investments to make improvements at Toomer field and around the league.
Continuing on progress made in 2017, we are looking for a group of parents to join our Diamond Club which will help us run our snackstand during the upcoming season, as well as work with the board on other fundraising opportunities for the league. We are looking for 5-6 volunteers this season and will waive one registration fee as a thank you for your efforts.
If you are interested in any of these, please contact us at email@example.com or contact our league President, Mike Caldon directly.
