LETTER FROM THE BOARD
As the questions and rumors circulate around our league about our situation of where we will be playing next year. I hope this message settles some of these issues.
First and foremost the Board's preference is to "CONTINUE" to play in Barberton. With that said, we also need to have a back- up plan to ensure our league continues to play next year. The city of Barberton is in a very tough and difficult situation, within the next two months they will lose 800 jobs and 1.3M. dollars of tax revenue. Plus, add in the issue that this is an election year for the Mayor. The Board has met with the Mayor and is trying to give the city the time needed to re-work these issues that they are facing and at the same time, and give us the time to make a decision prior to our end of year banquet on a playing site for 2020.
We continue to hear that we will lose players if we move to another site. That is possible and at the same time we can also gain players. We heard this in 2003, when we moved from Kent State to Barberton. In the next 6 years after the move, our league grew to 39 teams and had more players playing than any other previous year. This year we are down to 27 teams.
Our current situation is un-acceptable and needs to be improved. We are a customer to the city and need to be treated like one. Current conditions need to be improved from burned out lights needing replaced, batter boxers with craters need filled in correctly, lights need to be turned on at correct times, restrooms need to be unlocked, and we need to have fields available to make up rain out games and eliminate a huge burden on a few to be a moving and storage company, to move equipment to alternate sites to play.
Over the years we have played in Barberton, we gave the city $70,000 through grants and league funds to upgrade and maintain the fields, along with the fees we pay for each field used to play our games each season. We should never expect to be treated any different than any other league, but at the same time our league has meet its obligation and much "MORE" and we should expect the city to do the same.
The Board will continue its efforts moving forward to ensure that the Silver League has a site to play in 2020 our 34th year. That is our "GOAL".
*** Special Note - On the $70,000 Dollars, $50,000 Dollars of that total was a grant from the State of Ohio and the remainder was from league funds over the 15 years of playing in Barberton approved by previous Board's.
Always remember "life is simple play softball".

RAIN OUT ALERTS
F.Y.I. - For 2019 I am revising the way alerts are sent out. Anyone who has signed up for the rain out alerts will need to go into your account and specify in which division you wish to receive your alerts (i.e. Blue, Gold, Silver, Red, or White). This will eliminate players from getting alerts that do not pertain to their division. For players that have signed up for the rain out alerts - All division ALERT's will be sent at approximately 8:30. If you have not received your alert, at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time, you should assume your game(s) are still on and report to the fields. At that point the games are in the hands of the Umpires. If the Blue/Gold games are cancelled the Silver/Red/White games are cancelled as well for that day.
The AM and PM alerts have been discontinued.
If you haven't signed up for these alerts you can do so at any time. This just may save you an unnecessary drive to the fields on a rainy day.
Note: Several players have been having issues with signing up for these alerts. If you are still having these issues or are a new player attempting to sign up please email me your name and I will try too work through this process with you. I will need your email address, cell phone number, zip code, and phone carrier. Once I have those you will be sent a code from the site which you will need to send me in order to complete the process. If you do not receive a code I will notify the site support and try to get this resolved.
Anyone wishing to add their team photo from last year or this year to the scroll at the top of the site can send it to me via email in .jpg format.
Also during the season you can send me any pictures you would like added to the Photo Album page in .jpg format.
You never know...at some point you may see yourself scrolling across the Silver League website.
