To All Members,

  After our last general meeting I am proud to announce we have grown to over 270 members and 20 plus associate members. Giving us a total of close to 300 total members, the largest our organization has ever had. Thus allowing us to expand our league to 3 divisions. This expansion will help all 3 divisions be more competitive this season. We are currently implementing the rules for all three divisions. For example Div. 1 will play 9 innings, Div. 2 will play 8 innings, and Div. 3 will play 7 innings per game. All 3 divisions will have 6 teams. The team managers should have contacted all of you by now and the 2018 list of teams are posted on our website. Anyone joining after March 15 will be put on a waiting list for possible replacement if needed by injured players.

The managers for 2018 are:

Division One:  John Good, Grover, Jim Kosakowski, Pat O’Boyle, Jack Roberts & Tom Zinn

Division Two:  Harry Danik, Tim Hexter, Ray Humble, Austin Kuder, Joe Marco & Nick Schepis

Division Three:  Dave Marek, Ernie Peto, Jim Stutz, Stan Zaborski, Jim Ottogalli, & Jim Kipstufl

Division Two Director:Tom Zigman
Division Three Director: Bob Pine
Larry Keating ---- Chief Umpire
Umpire classes for all interested will be March 22, 2018 (Thursday) at 10:00 am at The Recreation Dept.

Season to start (Monday) April 30, 2018 (weather permitting).
We will have the practice schedule for all managers and teams posted shortly on our website. Weather permitting and after the fields dry out from winter snow we expect to be able to use the fields starting April 2, 2018. The Parma rainout # for games will be 440-962-0200. There will no reporting for wet fields for practices.

Sincerely,
