Make up picture day is March 8th (schedule forthcoming)
After so many people spent so much time preparing a fun-filled Opening Day, it is difficult for me to announce that we will be cancelling tomorrow’s activities. No doubt we have a parent or two in the league who is breathing a little easier as they were trying to figure out how to be at Opening Day Pictures, Spartan Basketball Playoffs, and Pinewood Derby all at the same time. For everyone else, I’ve added an explanation behind the decision below. I also want to thank Los Gringos Locos, Sir Michael’s Party Rental, Mark Fortier (www.whataparty.com), Golden State Photography, Kona Ice Truck, and LCUSD for NOT enforcing sales agreements and allowing us until today to make a final decision. They all were also willing to contribute to the league through revenue sharing or significant discounts on services. So, go try Los Gringos bacon-wrapped shrimp and thank Bent Hansen if you see him! Make up pictures will be on March 8. Tom and Chip will be getting new picture schedules out this next week. We hope to regroup for another/different sort of season opening activity here in the coming weeks. See you all soon!
2014 SEASON WRAP UP AND THANK YOU!
1) You will be receiving shortly an evaluation form for the 2014 baseball/softball season. We encourage you take a few minutes to share your thoughts, opinions, and feedback on the 2014 season. We try our best to get out and meet with many parents and learn how we can improve each program, but it’s impossible to take everyone’s temperature in that way. We hope to hear from you, so that we can continue to improve the player/family experience in LCBSA.
2) With MANY, MANY “highlights” (and very few “incidents”), we are thrilled that hundreds of kids had a good time playing ball, learned some valuable life lessons, and made new friends! We believe that youth sports is an important element of community building, and we feel blessed to have such excellent families who come out and support each other!
3) THANK YOU! It’s a little overwhelming to consider the aggregate effort of LCBSA volunteers. Thank you to the mom and dads who make up the LCBSA Board, who serve the excellent cast of league-level volunteers, who serve the tireless managers and coaches, who serve the players and their families. Every person is important and helpful, which makes LCBSA such a great community organization. We invite everyone to join LCBSA somewhere in the service line for the 2015 season – we need YOU!
2014 TOURNAMENT TEAMS
The participation in the tournament teams this year has been GREAT. We had a tremendous increase in the number of kids that came out to participate compared to years past. Case in point: the Mustang 10s had 42 kids try out. Last year: 27. And they have an incredibly talented TWO teams. In three divisions, we have two tournament teams. Great support from all of you - thank you. It's up to us, as willing parents, to help continue to put LC on the map in the baseball world, and your time and efforts are greatly appreciated!
