News
Effective 8/10, we are updating our Covid-19 procedures/precautions based on the new information provided to us from CC R&P on 8/6.  The following MUST be followed:
 
1)  Coaches must wear masks unless on a field and socially distant - over 6 ft.  If you are off the field, interacting with players under 6 ft apart, or at any of our complexes, have your mask on.
2)  Players must wear masks unless actually in the field of play.  Players must wear masks when in dugouts, or moving around our facilities.  Players gear must be spread out 6 feet apart.
3)  Parents must social distance, and must wear masks.  No spectators outside of immediate family allowed.
4)  In addition, we expect that our teams will represent us in the same manner away as we are expecting while at our home facilities.  
5)  All team rosters and registrants are being reported to Carroll County Parks and Rec to allow for Covid Tracing in the unfortunate
event that this becomes necessary.
 
 
Please keep in mind that we are in control of our destiny here.  Many programs have been shut down, and HS sports are cancelled.  These requirements are not up for debate, and must be taken to allow us to continue to play.  Finksburg Baseball & Lady Lions Softball intends to prioritize the safety of our community and families while we make every attempt to find ways to continue to offer youth sports.

Coaches needed for spring 2021 softball

As we look forward for the Lady Lions softball program, we continue to be in desperate need of coaching in virtually every age group and skill level.  We would like to greatly expand our offerings including significantly more younger and recreational softball.  We are looking for coaching for teams for spring 2021, but can offer fall field space for those interested and/ or winter indoor space as allowed during covid-19.

Please contact Frank Roelke at finksburgbaseballpres@gmail.com to discuss.

 

THE LADY LIONS NEED YOUR HELP!!


2020 Finksburg Baseball & Softball Scholarships

I'm proud to announce that for 2020, we are awarding two $500 scholarships for graduating seniors.  Starting in 2019, with funding from our travel baseball program, we are awarding scholarship money for players who have participated in our program and are continuing their education after graduating from high school.

For this year, we had a strong pool of applicants, but the awards go to Dominic DiMaggio, and AJ Delgado.  These candidates won based on a preset criteria of GPA, years in our program, service hours, and an essay about how playing Finksburg Baseball helped them grow.

AJ was a member of the National Honors Society, four year trumpet player for symphonic band, 3 year track discus thrower, member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), healthy decisions club, varsity club and treasurer for the environmental club.  He was a football varsity starter his senior year and will be majoring in business administration and playing football at Stevenson University. His favorite Finksburg Lions memory was being crowned Battle for the Burgh champs in the 2018 16U Wood Bat tournament in Pittsburgh, PA.  AJ played in the program for 9 years, and has also umpired games.

 

Dominic DiMaggio played 12 years in the program, and graduated from Carroll Christian.  He is off to Carroll Community College in the fall.  I recently saw one of his senior pictures holding his Finksburg Baseball T-Ball Shirt.  The DiMaggio family has been integral to our program for many, many years, and I think very highly of them all.

 

I'd also like to use this as an opportunity to mention that we are always looking for donations that can be specifically earmarked to enlarge the scholarship fund for years future.  We received a very nice donation this year from a previous travel coach and I'd love to see it grow so that we can offer even more in years to come.  Don't forget we are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax deductible.


Finksburg Baseball & Softball Families!!

It is with a heavy heart that I post this, even though I know it is the right thing to do.  With the onset of the covid-19 situation across the area, and the recent changes related to the state of emergency in our county, we are forced to put the health and safety of our families to the forefront of all priorities.  Finksburg Baseball & Lady Lions Softball operates as a Carroll County Recreation and Parks sanctioned activity, and as such, follows all protocol issued by them.  Parks and Rec has cancelled all activities from now until March 30th.  I am hopeful that this timeline is not extended, but we will wait for the green light from Parks and Rec before resuming.

We will suspend all baseball & softball activities through this period.  This includes cancelling our field prep day planned for tomorrow.  We will look at the possibility of rescheduling the events previously scheduled during this hiatus, including our upcoming skills clinic.  

We remain hopeful and optimistic that once this period is over, baseball will resume in the best manner possible.  We will continue to keep our parents and players informed of our plans and intentions and we look forward to providing you with the best season possible given the situation at hand.  We appreciate the cooperation of our volunteers, coaches, and parents during this time.

The Lady Lions are looking for coaches and players from 8U-12U for spring 2020

The Lady Lions are looking for coaches for teams in 8U, 10U, and 12U who would like to play in local leagues.  Please contact finksburgbaseballpres@gmail.com for more information.  We have fields and support for younger teams, but need qualified coaches.  We can host teams in Mason-Dixon, CML, and many other local leagues.


Who are the Finksburg Lady Lions?

The Finksburg Lady Lions are a fast pitch softball organization dedicated to teaching girls ages 6 through 18 the fundamentals of the game. We field teams from the recreation level all the way up to travel and tournament play. Our coaches have many years of experience. We begin league play in early April and play through mid June and July for some teams, through November for others. We play our home games at Sandy Mount and Roaring Run Parks. We are affiliated with Finksburg Baseball and part of the Central Carroll Recreation Council. We play in USSSA sanctioned tournaments including World Series events in Virginia, Maryland and Connecticut. We also compete in Central Maryland and Mason Dixon league play.

Devin Jones, graduating from Westminster High School and heading to Elizabethtown College in PA, 11yrs in the program, and Ben Morrison, headed to University of MD, graduating from Franklin High School, 9yrs in the program. 

We are happy to give each of them $500 towards their tuition.  I'd also like to thank the Roaring Run Lions Club, who, without their support, none of this would have been possible.
