Kaufman Lions Club takes a break from playing Monday and Tuesday of this week for STAAR testing in public school. As such, we discourage any organized practice on these days. We resume play Thursday. Teams should check their schedules daily for any changes due to rainouts etc. Managers are responsbile for notifying their players and parents of any changes.
Fan Behavior Concerns!
We take this opportunity to remind parents, coaches and fans that our league is here to provide a place for our youth to play baseball and learn valuable life lessons. One of the lessons we want them to learn is good sportsmanship. We have been increasingly seeing that lesson set aside by some people so they can ridicule players, their kids coaches and the umpires. The kids are watching how the adults act and we want them to have good role models. Our umpires have begun removing those who can't behave accordingly. Our umpires, the Comish and any Lions Club member has the authority remove unruly fans at any time. Please help us to impact our youth in a positive way!
Hits for Hunger Begins May 1!
2014 Hits For Hunger campaign begins May 1st. We are collecting cans and dollars for the Kaufman Christian Help Center. Players will turn in can goods or money to the concession stand through May 31st. Each time you donate 5 cans or $5 you will receive a frozen treat. Please help Kaufman Christian Help Center feed the hungry in our community.
Just a reminder....Steel cleats are only allowed in the 13-14 year old division. However, they are not allowed when pitching on our temporary mounds. Only tennis shoes and nobby, non-metal cleats can be worn on them because the metal tears up the mounds. Thank you for your help.
