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.

LEAGUE REPORTS

 

Teeners-Currently Vacant

Playoffs will start at the beginning of July.  Good seasons for both teams. Playoffs from both divisions.  We are hoping to add another team for teeners for next year.


Todd Kirk- Telling them to keep the fields better.  16u team needs to be addressed. They took Legion’s field dry.  

 

Majors-Bernie Seasock

Very good playoff series.  Won by the Phillies. Came back to beat the Rays two times.  Best defensive 11 and 12’s. The winter workouts were helpful.  The 12’s received sweatshirts. 12’s are looking forward to the teeners next year.  



Bill McKee-  How is it in the best interest of a child to be intentionally walked 4 times in a game?  He feels that we should be embarrassed as a league.


During the playoffs we follow Ripken playoff rules.  We treat it as a district tournament. We are playing to win.  It is strategy for baseball.


A rule was resubmitted.  To review the rule before the next season.  It should be fun for all kids. Bill McKee watches his grand-nephew.  He was a embarrassed to be a part of the the league.


Anthony Marusco-When it comes to our playoffs we need to revisit what needs to be done.  We will revisit the rules for playoffs.

 

Minors- Bob Weeks

Congratulate the Mariners for the Championship.  The playoffs were fabulous. It was great baseball.  The parents were mostly well behaved. Callups-there were 21 call ups in over 40 games this year.  The experience was great.


Tomorrow night is the All-Star Game for the kids that are not on the district teams.  


Are we still giving the kids the opportunity to try out for the minors?  


Question about Minor League rules:

#20 Says Playoffs- all tournament games follow playoffs rules.  


We as a league play for the 2 players hit by a pitcher then the player is pulled.  John Howe disagrees with the way that rules are being broken.


Dan Campbell- Spirit of the Law and the Letter of the Law.  


As a group, John Howe opposes what we are doing as an organization.  


Anthony states that the rule that has been referring to the pitching for the kids.  Everything was the same.


John Howe feels that the organization is following apart.

 

Rookies-Jon Dalton

Congratulations to the Angels.  Won the Championships. The pirates came in second and Cardinals came in third. Very competitive this year.

 

Tee Ball- Vicki Hittle

Jr Rookies had 3 teams this year.  Nationals, Diamondbacks and Phillies.  6 way tie for first place for the Tee Ball.  

 

Equipment Manager-

Not present.

 

Parents Auxiliary- Rebecca Farrell

 Not much to report.  We have had lots of positive reports from the parents at the tournament.

Looking at Late July early August.  We would like to see if when the township is down there with heavy machinery.  If you have interest or suggestions to be on a committee. Please contact Dan Campbell.  


Question- What happened to lights on the field?  We are getting the fence first and then moving on...

Field Maintenance-Dan Campbell

My new toy is a 60 inch zero turn tractor.  We got a grant for the fence and backstop on the major field.  It will be done in July. Looking for free tools. This past Sunday we had a week of rain and a lot of rain.  We had three people show up to get the fields ready. We are a volunteer organization. We need help to get the fields ready.  

Coaches if you have a game please help the day of your games.  If you can not help please ask other parents. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Dan Campbell needs help. There seems to be 5-6 people doing a lot of work for the fields.  When it does rain, field dry is 25.00 a bag. Let’s use it wisely. Vacuum the water first, then rake it, let the air and sun get to it.  Leave it alone, Then throw some field dry on it. Let’s make our fields the best that they can.

 

Player Agent- Jim Buggy

8-12 year old binders give him some time.  Winter clinic 40 kids 21 made a district team.  We will repeat it in January 2019. We will group the 10’s with the 11’s and 12’s.  Maybe a Columbus Day clinic.

Minor Phillies won the pizza party for the most attendees.  


When do we need to have the fall ball sponsors.


Can we look into hiring an umpire service for next season?  Our young umpires have not been up to par. We need to find whether it is paid umpires or instructing our umpires, better.  

Fall Ball- Tom Wood will run the fall ball tee ball.  WE would like to include more age groups in fall ball.  We need to have people help us to run the divisions. We would like the teeners to be involved.  Trying to get kids playing baseball.


We talked about summer baseball.  It is exploratory. We have done it one year.  It was immensely popular. Perhaps pool play??

Someday he will show us a picture and the after picture.  Our next big project will be the outfield for the major field. The locks for the majors. We have new locks coming in hopefully this week. In the cages, lights were installed thanks that to the Hittle Family.  Lights should be turned off by 9:00 PM. Concession Stand had lots of outlets replaced. Shawn Donovan and Brian Kelly did a lot of work. Need tools down at the field. Need ladders, tools, etc. Needs a favor. If anyone can cut the grass let him know.    Anyone want to roll the fields???

LEAGUE REPORTS

 

Teeners-Empty Resigned as of last month.  

We have 22 kids signed up for teeners.  Email went out to all signed up teeners.  Entering into a league playing other teams. Carrying 12-15 on each teener team.  . Closing registration this week. 2 teams will be placed in a tournament during the season.  Looking to play more competitive at the teeners.

 

Majors-Bernie Seasock


We got out on the fields this weekend.  We have 6 teams in the Majors still have a couple of openings.  4 teams have 11 and 2 have 10. 15-17 game schedule. We will have Sunday Clinics starting on April 8th.  This will be a four week clinic. Bernie spoke to Sun Valley Baseball Team to see if 5-6 of them will help out.  Field just opened today, but probably closed tomorrow. We will play 6 weeks with Brookhaven starting on the 11th and the teams will travel from one to the other.  

 

Minors- Bob Weeks

We were able to get on the field tonight as well tonight.  Field Maintenance this Saturday, the field looks great, but still work to do.  There are 72 players in the minors for this year. Working on call ups for the Minor  Bob would like clinics on Saturday and Sundays. Thinking to invite some 7 year olds. More time for the kids to practice.  


Question:  At what time do you call a kid up from Rookies?  Is it okay for us to play with 9? Is is more fun for the kids that have to play with the call-ups?


Bob: If we know ahead of time we will be able to call up kids.  We do not want 2 or three on each team. You can start with nine players.  


Anthony: It is a balancing act.  If head coach knows then you should be asking for a call up or two.  


Michael: It has not been a problem in the past.  I am wondering why it will be an issue this year.  


Chris Darpino:  When will the schedule be out?  

 

Rookies-Jon Dalton

WE finally got on the field yesterday and then it will be closed again tomorrow.  There are 6 teams. One has 12 everyone else has 11. We will be running clinics with the Commissioners.  Rookies will be working with Brookhaven. 8’s will play Brookhaven.


Ralph Papa: Any indoor facilities to use?



 

Tee Ball- Vicki Hittle

For tee ball we have 6 teams.  2 teams with 10 players each. 4 teams have 9 players each.  Each team has a head coach. 2 returning coaches 4 new coaches.  3 teams for Junior Rookies with 10 in each team. We have one coach for three teams.  We have 4 assistants for that team. No practice schedule yet, but it will be coming. She will not make schedule until after rookies are finished.  Schedule will be out early next week. All rules will be emailed to the coaches.

 

Equipment Manager-Jay Hickman

We did equipment pick up last week.  IF we didn’t hook up shoot him an email.  Bats were ordered for each division. Three bats for each division.  Jerseys are ordered. The away team will be in charge of picking up the bats.  Bats need to be returned at the end of every game.

 

Parents Auxiliary- Rebecca Farrell

We are pretty much all set up for Opening Day.  We will have a makeup day for Pictures on the 15.  


Parents want to know if there is an option to pay to work the stand.  The list will be out soon.

 

Facilities-Dan Campbell

This weekend is a huge weekend for his department.  We are starting at 9:00. Each commissioner has a to-do list.  Rookies is getting rocks off the fields. Minor field is in pretty good shape.  Majors field needs the most work. We felt it was better to resod the Major field in the fall.  We will need to pull people from other fields. IF you have a wheelbarrow please bring it. We are doing Weir park and Buggy Field.  John Howe will take the lead on the Teener field. If mother nature fights us we may need to push the field maintenance to Sunday.


The Hittle Family will hang the lights in the batting cages.  Hoping before the end of this month.


The fence is waiting for the grant for the Major Field.  They will take the existing fence down and then put up the new stuff.  


We are now using both double doors for all the equipment.  If you do not have those keys please see Dan Campbell.


We have purchased a shed for the rookie field.  We need to do some prep work. The township is going to do the prep work.  


If you rake the field and drag the field it makes it much easier for the next day a lot better.  


Please close the gates.  Weir park is a dog park. We do not want our kids playing with the dog poop.  


John Howe- Fence will not happen before opening day, but it will happen this year.  

We are allowed to put the dog signs up on the fields.  


Mr. Morelli- Are you taking care of the tree branch on the rookie field?  

Dan-

LEAGUE REPORTS

 

Teeners-Currently Vacant

Playoffs will start at the beginning of July.  Good seasons for both teams. Playoffs from both divisions.  We are hoping to add another team for teeners for next year.


Todd Kirk- Telling them to keep the fields better.  16u team needs to be addressed. They took Legion’s field dry.  

 

Majors-Bernie Seasock

Very good playoff series.  Won by the Phillies. Came back to beat the Rays two times.  Best defensive 11 and 12’s. The winter workouts were helpful.  The 12’s received sweatshirts. 12’s are looking forward to the teeners next year.  



Bill McKee-  How is it in the best interest of a child to be intentionally walked 4 times in a game?  He feels that we should be embarrassed as a league.


During the playoffs we follow Ripken playoff rules.  We treat it as a district tournament. We are playing to win.  It is strategy for baseball.


A rule was resubmitted.  To review the rule before the next season.  It should be fun for all kids. Bill McKee watches his grand-nephew.  He was a embarrassed to be a part of the the league.


Anthony Marusco-When it comes to our playoffs we need to revisit what needs to be done.  We will revisit the rules for playoffs.

 

Minors- Bob Weeks

Congratulate the Mariners for the Championship.  The playoffs were fabulous. It was great baseball.  The parents were mostly well behaved. Callups-there were 21 call ups in over 40 games this year.  The experience was great.


Tomorrow night is the All-Star Game for the kids that are not on the district teams.  


Are we still giving the kids the opportunity to try out for the minors?  


Question about Minor League rules:

#20 Says Playoffs- all tournament games follow playoffs rules.  


We as a league play for the 2 players hit by a pitcher then the player is pulled.  John Howe disagrees with the way that rules are being broken.


Dan Campbell- Spirit of the Law and the Letter of the Law.  


As a group, John Howe opposes what we are doing as an organization.  


Anthony states that the rule that has been referring to the pitching for the kids.  Everything was the same.


John Howe feels that the organization is following apart.

 

Rookies-Jon Dalton

Congratulations to the Angels.  Won the Championships. The pirates came in second and Cardinals came in third. Very competitive this year.

 

Tee Ball- Vicki Hittle

Jr Rookies had 3 teams this year.  Nationals, Diamondbacks and Phillies.  6 way tie for first place for the Tee Ball.

President’s Report - Anthony Marusco


Last month we had designer bag bingo.  It was very successful event.  All tickets were sold.  Captured $2500.00.  

Fall Ball Update: Makeup rainouts.  We would like to play the games on Saturdays. Difficult to play when kids are on the football teams and soccer.  Lots of compromising.  Umpires have been fine.  One coach has been difficult during games.  

CPR- looking for an early spring session.  Board and coaches.  Feb/March Timeframe.  

Babe Ruth have started in 2018.  It will be a wood type bat.  A list will be put out relatively soon.  Bat may only be allowed for this upcoming season.  Think about the bat before buying them.  

Looking to correct our Minor field.  Met with the Blue rocks maintenance guy.  Looking to get the fields leveled.

OLD BUSINESS

Aston Valley Fall Ball


7 Rookie teams

9 Minor teams

7 Major teams


Thanks for all the help getting the fields ready for play.  

There are a few games where there are a few games where no Aston Valley team is playing so he will need help with those.  One sponsor was spelled wrong on


Kids First Swim needs a sign .  


Couple minor hiccups.  Nether has CCD/Sunday school so all Sunday games start at 12:30 and 3:00 instead of 12:00 and 2:30.  



Aston Valley will be walking in the Aston Community Day Parade on Saturday October 7, 2017.  

Can we have a head count for parade?  


We were going to remove the pea stones and it should be on the list to have done for field maintenance day.    


Gift Card for Ron Corrento.

Gift Card for Joe Hart for donating his time to our league. Especially for all of his assistance with the Minor League field this spring.  



The new bat rule goes into effect.  We as a league will have to be prepared for the stance that some parents may not be able to afford the new bats.

The consensus among the board members was to enforce the new bat rules at the beginning of next season.  We also decided that we would purchase two differently weighted bats that both teams could share.  


Question from Craig Stokarski: Will the league send out information about the new bats?  When registration will open we will make sure to have flyers for sign ups.  


Mark put copies of bylaws and constitutions on the back table.  He stated that if a nonprofit organization all board positions can only run for one year.  Article 5 section A states current president if challenged by someone else then the current president cannot run.

PRESIDENT’S REPORTS



President’s Report - Anthony Marusco






OLD BUSINESS

We have only had one rainout.  Out of the five requests to make up we have already made up four of them.  Last year was a trifecta.  BYC, Tri-county, and Aston Valley.  It was nice to have two facilities.  Snack bar has been good, pizza is good, hotdogs are a little expensive.  If you see that it is raining out please come down and help get the fields ready.  


John Howe stated “Dan Campbell has done a great job with fall ball.”


Anthony asked Amanda Doyle for an update for sponsorship.  She updated the form and it will be placed on the website.  


As soon as fall ball is done we would like to fix the pitching mounds on minor and major leagues.  An email will come out.  Probably first weekend of November.  


John Howe is talking to the township about fencing, and lights at the field.  Township commissioners have a meeting next week to see what might happen.

OLD BUSINESS



 

NEW BUSINESS

Can I address the board please?  Jeff Vickers

You should be ashamed of yourselves.  I just want to help finish my sons last year as an assistant coach.  I was thrown out of a game.  I was reinstated.  I have heard rumors.  I will sit on that bench unless the police pull me off the bench.  As a board you have taken away for my kids last year.  It is hearsay and lies.  Three pages of violations.  I haven’t slept in two weeks.  I care about the kids.  I teach them winter, spring, and summer.  Leave me alone and leave my kid out of this.  I am a baseball guy.  I want one year.  20 parents called him up and said what can we do?  I just want to coach my sons last year.  When Ken is off being a TV superstar.  I appreciate the parents that stand behind me.  I want to be remembered.  I am going to do it.  I will coach.  The stuff I heard I would lose my job if those this were true.  The lies that followed me here are lies.



Paul Mullen, Vickers was my kids coach last year.

I have been involved for the last 19 years.

He is a great coach.

They know the routine and respect the game.

I feel like that a lot of kids have learned a lot from him.  What he did with those 12 kids it has benefited all of them.  



Ed Vitale:

I have coached beside this man since our kids have been five years old.  He has the most knowledge.  It is about the kids and not about him.  That man has done nothing but that.  I don’t know what rumors that you have heard.  I have known him for 7 years.  Tossed out of game for asking a question.  I don’t know why asking a question is wrong.



Colleen Smith:

My son has been on his team for 2 years.  When her son heard that he could not coach any longer he cried.  Her son wanted to come and talk.


Carl

I played under Jeff for 4 years at Penn State and he has done a lot for me.


Gary Dougherty:

I had the pleasure of being taught by Jeff.  He has taught me to be a better coach.  By the time they get to the majors they should be able to throw a ball.  Who on the board was there for the two games?  Todd Kirk raised his hand.  If that is what you are holding over this guy then you should reconsider.


Dave Locke:

Last year was the first year that my son was coached.  I am dumbfounded that we are standing here having this conversation.  I was there and saw the call.  I would love for the board to tell you why they were saying no.  I think it is totally obsurd.  If it was about the kids you would put the guys here.  


Bruce Hemingway:

Last season was my first season here at Aston Valley and we had parents who verbally assaulted and got a slap on the wrist.  Coaches were convicted felons.  You guys make me sick.  You guys are sick.  



Anthony Marusco:

Based on the issues that were faced last year.  As the new incoming president I am trying to put procedures into place to make it better.  I am and the board are trying to start over.  No one has been thrown out of our league.  He is a member and his kid is playing at Aston Valley.  The decision that was made was based on events that have occured only at Aston Valley.  


Jeff Vickers:  Am I the first person to be voted down as an assistant?   The umpire threw the money in the air.  I walked to my car.  



Joe Hart: I was at the game at Weir Park. And the way that you spoke to the umpire.  You were within 8 inches of the umpire’s face.  You backed down the third base line.  “What did you say to the kids the next day to explain what happened?”  You were ejected from the game and you wouldn’t leave the game.  



Anthony Marusco:

I think what Joe Hart is trying to get across is what did you tell your kids.  


Gary Dougherty:

Did anyone address the Angels coaches for the kids?  



Jeff Vickers:

I am coaching my last year with my son.  It is our father son time.  For people who don’t know me.  I want this to end.  I want to sit on the bench and keep the book.  Not enough votes.  Lots of problems with the board.  

Husband and Wife


Here is a little nugget to remember me by.  There was a board member that had an umpire throw me out to take over my district team that won states.  


This is so important to me.  I haven’t slept, haven’t eaten.  I am sitting on that bench to be with my son on that first game.  If all of these people who spoke up about me it should mean something.  I am coaching on the field next time.  The lies will stop tonight.  The things that I heard that is personal.  I am a man of my word.  I don’t want you to revote.  I am looking forward to being an assistant.  


John Marantino: I was the head coach of the team against you and I thought that it was a very quick ejection.  I am not here for him or against him.  He did help in the winter clinic.  


John Howe: A guy gets thrown out in the MLB. If you argue


Jeff Vickers: I am not threatening you.  Nowhere in your bylaws does it say that you vote on assistant coaches.  I want one year with my son.  He is having a hard time.  


Anthony Marusco:  How many times were you throw out over your career?  


Jeff Vickers: Three times.  Once in a district game, once in college and once in Aston Middletown.  The inhouse game was overturned by Bob Clarke.  

 

Colleen Smith: He asked to speak to his pitcher and then he got kicked out.  And he got kicked out for raising his hand.  


Jeff Vickers


Joe Hart: What did the kids learn from him getting thrown out?


Bruce Hemingway: The kids were explained that the call was made wrong.  He explains throughly to each and every kids what they did right and what they did wrong and what he did right and what he did wrong.  In regards to Angels were they explained to by the coaches.


Jeff Vickers: Teachers teach.  They teach life lessons not just baseball lessons.   Do you think I like being thrown out of the game.  I want this done. I don’t want to bad mouth you.  I will be keeping the books.  If you need to call the police.  


Michael Grady:  You have coached twenty games.  You have been thrown out twice  I Districts you were thrown out again.  I have not looked at any results.  I am looking at what is happening while you were wearing our colors.  


Jeff Vickers: Let me enjoy my son’s last year.  


Steve Chapman:  I don’t agree with the decisions the board makes and I address it with people individually.  When you are told you are If we voted the board and don’t then we are nothing as an organization.  That is not the right way to do it.  



Anthony Marusco: I am going to have the board having a discussion about it and we will discuss what was discussed here tonight and I will bring to you about what takes place.  I will contact you personally.  


Fran Miles: Everything is negativity.  Let us discuss it and if we were wrong we were wrong.
