Letter from the President

​Letter from the President
Feb, 2020


We started off mid January with our Board of Directors meeting and discussed many rule changes submitted by you and many others for 2020. The list is too long to write here, but a few that affect all are, 1) the pitchers screen can be moved anywhere from 3’ to 6’ in front of the pitching rubber. 2) The board has been reduced to nine members. All managers have been removed off the board. The new board consists of the 4 officers, 3 Division directors, the Chief Umpire and the Rules chairman.

We now have 3 new Division Directors, they are: Div. 1 Don Taylor, Div. 2 Terry Dempsey and Div. 3 Larry Govang. These men will work with the managers of their division and report to the President and the board through-out the year. They all have good ideas and I welcome all of them to their new positions.  
During this month’s general meeting it was suggested to move our New Player evaluations to Caps Field House in Valley View. So, this morning I reached out to Mike Sweeny the owner and we now have a new date listed below for new players only and managers at this great facility. There are 80,000 sq. ft. under roof and real balls may be used and the lighting is great. This opportunity to use this facility is as close as you can get to real outdoor fields during the winter months. Thanks Mike for such a short notice to evaluate our newest members to Huff- n – Puffers Senior Softball.

Sadly, this morning I awoke to another current member that has passed, Mr. Ed Pawlowski is now on a team in heaven I’m sure playing softball. Ed asked me when I visited him, Please, don’t forget to draft me when I get up there someday. I have had Eddie and Ray Zellers both on my teams through-out the years and will never forget them. I’m certain Ed is at peace now, God Bless.
