PRESIDENT’S REPORTS



President’s Report - Anthony Marusco

Not much to say.  Mention our fall ball.  Playing since the second week of September.  Fall ball was improved with the number of teams from last year.  


Rookies

The Nether teams have been supportive about how our fields looked.  Struggling with a catcher for those teams.


JR. Rookies played the Rookies

That went over pretty well.


Minors

Kids looked pretty impressive.


Majors

Wanted to send a feeler out to see if there is anything that we can do to improve,


Tom has worked his rear end off!  Thanks for everything!!


Community Day Parade

Aston Valley participated in Aston Community Day

About 30 kids and parents in the parade.  Township appreciated us for being there.

Field Maintenance-Dan Campbell

August was terrible for rain.  Sprayed the infield three times.  Hired Weeds Inc for the fields and within a week everything was dead.  There were no weeks. Thank Tom Wood for helping getting the fields ready.  I apologize for it not being perfect, but this weekend it looked pretty good.  


This Wednesday, September 19 please come to the field at 6:00 PM to meet about sprucing the place up.  We are having the field and backstop replaced. Hoping to do some excavation and fix drainage issues while the equipment is down there.  We have a very large complex. He would love ideas about what we can do either next year or ten years from now.


Possibly replace foul poles for the minor and majors field.  He did apply for two grants.



Update for Buggy field:  They have done a lot of work over there.  It looks like they are addressing the drainage issue.  It looks like they put drainage in. The facilities director for Penn Delco Dan will meet with to see if we can do something similar with the Minor Field.

AVBL General Membership meetings are held every third Monday of the month at 8:30PM. The meetings are held at the American Legion Post 926 at 3220 Concord Rd in Aston. We welcome you to come out to the meetings and see what is happening in the league, ask questions, voice concerns, get to know other league members, etc. Come on out and get involved! We would love to see you there!!!!!

AVBL Territory

Lots of questions around where our Aston Valley Baseball Leagues boundaries are.  While it is not simple, we are much larger than just Aston!  We are Aston Township and the PennDelco Schools within Aston.  For our Cal Ripken (ages 4-12) division, we also have part of zip code 19063.  We will post a map shortly but in the meantime here is a description of where our 19063 boundaries exist.  If you have specific questions, email our player agent at playeragent@AVBL.org
