To All Members,
February 2, 2017 was our second meeting of the year, and our third at the County Library at 2111 Snow Road. So we have moved from our old location. For all the new members we meet on the first Thursday of the month. Jan. Feb. Mar. Oct. Nov. & Dec. All meetings start at 10:00am.
Managers so far are: Senior division, Joe Marco, Stan Zaborski, George Cox, Tom Zingale, Ray Humble, Chuck Parete, Nick Schepis, Harry Danik & Austin Kuder.
Junior division, Tom Zinn, Pat O’Boyle, John Good, Dave “Grover” Kistler, & Jack Roberts.
We have reached an agreement with NEO Soccer and have the facility every Wednesday in Jan. Feb. and March. From 10:00 am to 12:00pm. Starting 1/11/17. The cost is $5 per person. Because of broken lights last year we will be using a softer ball when batting. But fielding grounders are with a normal softball. The location is behind the Parma Hts. Police Station and Yorktown Bowling Lanes at Pearl and Old York Rd.
All new members will have evaluations on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 and will be placed in the draft they qualify for. You will be judged on hitting, fielding, running & throwing. Anyone interested in helping call any officer. We can always use the help. The time is from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Don’t be late!
Umpire classes will be held on Thursday April 6th and Thursday April 13, 2017. They will be at the Recreation Department at 7375 Ridge Rd. just north of Pleasant Valley Rd. Starting at 10:00am. We will try to limit the class for two hours. If you are considering umping please try to attend one or both of these classes.
We have 13 new members so far this season. They are: Steve Cross, Ted Wootan, Arthur Czarnitzki, David Sanchez, Lynn Merholz, Chuck Parete, Jim Durkot, Paul Synek, Gary Armbruster, Bill Edelburg, Tim Wunderle, Greg Lavelle, and Alan Burns.
We will post the revised by-laws on the website in a few days.
Senior Division Director; Tom Zigman
Rules committee: Chairman: Jim Kipfstuhl, Tom Zigman, Ed Kustra, Jerry Bacher & Ken Dippong.
Chief Umpire: Chairman: Len Lieber (Senior ump schedules) Tom Denk (Junior ump schedules)
Sunshine committee: Don Tischler. Our condolences to Jack White’s family as we lost Jack earlier this year.
Historian: Joe Lubowicz / Bob Murdoch
The softball season will start weather permitting on April 27, 2017. If you haven’t attended one of these opening days it’s a lot of fun. We have the Mayor, The Service Director, The Recreation Director and the Marine Band to start off the season. Ceremonies start before the first game. I will have a letter each month and will post on our website so that those that cannot attend our monthly meeting will be informed on what’s happening in our league. So stay healthy and be safe so you can say Play Ball come April.
June 12, 2017 (Monday) (Free Hot Dog picnic) to all paid members.
August 9, 2017 (Wednesday) Steak Roast & All Star games.
Our next meeting is March 2, 2017 at 10:00am @ 2111 Snow Rd.
Sincerely, John Teron
