Flagpole Project - Seeking Sponsors

We are planning to install a new permanent Flagpole at Havenwood Park.  The flagpole will be located in the center of the park, with some benches and landscaping around it.  We will also be installing a permanent dedication marker/monument as part of the flagpole.

We are looking for sponsors to help us raise $2,000 to begin the construction before a dedication ceremony planned for Opening Day of our next spring season.

 All sponsors that contribute $100 or more for this specific project will receive recognition on our website, from the time we receive the contribution, up to one year after dedication of the flagpole.
 All sponsors that contribute $250 or more for this specific project will get their business name engraved on the permanent metal marker to be installed near the flagpole.
 All sponsors that contribute $500 or more will have their engraving in a larger font size on the same marker.

Thanks for your consideration to help our community!  Donations of any amount can be made electronically on this website under SPONSORS on the left menu.

If you have questions, or want to make a contribution in person, please contact Fred Engel frengel@ymail.com 410-897-2119.

Thank You
Flagpole Sponsors

Major League Baseball isn't necessarily the best place to look for consistent good sportsmanship, but here's one example:

On June 2, 2010, Detroit Tiger pitcher Armando Galarraga was one out away from pitching what should have become the 21st perfect game in major league history. The next batter grounded to the first baseman, but he was called safe at first by the umpire. Galarraga knew the runner should have been called out. Even the runner thought he was out. And TV instant replay (before official reviews were allowed) confirmed for everyone that the runner was indeed out.

So what did Galarraga do? He simply smiled, walked back to the mound, and pitched to the next batter. The story is made even better by the fact that Galarraga remained focussed and got the next batter out for the shutout win, but what makes him a good sport is that when he was unfairly cheated out of a perfect game, he said not one word to the umpire, smiled good-naturedly, and got immediately back to work.

And the firstbase umpire, Jim Joyce, who thought the runner was out when he made the call, later saw the slow replay and realized he had made a mistake.  Joyce immediately apologized to Galarraga, and Galarraga immediately and graciously accepted.

Still officially no perfect game in the record books, but PERFECT SPORTSMANSHIP all around.
Sportsmanship
We practice hard. We play fair.
But most importantly, we have FUN!


The Pasadena Baseball Club has a zero tolerance for unsportsmanlike conduct. Whether you participate in the very relaxed Clinic program, our typical "rec ball" Intramural program, or the highly competitive Travel program, we expect all of our players, managers, coaches, officials, and spectators to demonstrate sportsmanlike conduct at all times.  If you can't conduct yourself accordingly, we ask that you please not join our Club.

Good sportsmanship is NOT CONDITIONAL on the other guy also being a good sport.  Good sportsmanship is tested and proven by how you behave when the other guy is being a poor sport.

To help ensure that all members of the Club use good sportsmanship, the Club has established a Sportsmanship Board to promote good sportsmanship and correct unsportsmanlike conduct.

Sportsmanship Board Members
Tom Henry, President
Ray Mills, VP-Clinic
Jan Finch, VP-Intramural
Tim Rathell, VP-Travel

We have adopted Anne Arundel County Rec and Parks Code of Ethics and will consult their Disciplinary Actions as necessary. Our Sportsmanship Policy is located under Handouts, and Coach's Code of Ethics and Disciplinary Actions are located under Coaches Box. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact a member of the Sportsmanship Board.

Guess What? You already have!
 
Your registration fee was actually a membership fee - and with that membership you get the right to help your Club and community to be the best that it can be.  And if it isn't the best it can be, its probably only because you haven't taken full advantage of your membership rights.
 
So please - we are ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS looking for more volunteers.

 Executive Board Members- Organize and lead the basic operations of the Club.
 Associate Board Members - Assist the Executive Board Members in specific functions, such as division directors, fundraising activities, etc.

If you want to help, please contact the appropriate Board Member listed under Contacts, or the President of the Club.

 Coaches - Assist a manager in teaching baseball.
