February Newsletter

Sneaking in the February newsletter after quite a busy month!

 

Registration for Spring 2017 closed earlier this week.  If you still want to register, you can, but there is an applicable late fee and we cannot guarantee uniform size requests, although we will make every effort to do so.  Single A and Double A teams being formed currently and Managers at all levels will be selected shortly.  Triple A and Majors Drafts will be held in the next couple of weeks.  We have received a lot of emails about registration this year, and I apologize for any confusion on dates, ages, etc.  We are in the process of transitioning to changes mandated by Little League International and it has caused some havoc to say the least.  We will always aim to do the right thing with placing kids in the right Divisions and will certainly communicate with all of you who have made such requests.

 

We have begun preparations for the nine baseball fields being used by LV Baseball this year.  A common question we have received was regarding West Branch Park.  We will NOT be using West Branch Park this year for Single A.  We are making alternate plans that I think will benefit everyone.  In being cost conscious, we are investigating some options for reducing our field maintenance costs, particularly at Tower Hill and Chestnut Street.  Accordingly, we will be once again calling on our volunteer army to help out in those locations a little more than in the last several years.  Please look for more information on dates for those events very shortly.  You've heard me appeal for volunteers several times - this is one of those times!

 

Some updates on our Fundraising efforts this year - we had a successful campaign at Lee's Hoagie House in January.  This month we are having a Dine & Donate night at the New Britain Inn on Sunday, February 26th from 4pm to 8pm.  Please support this effort to help fund our equipment needs for the upcoming season.  We'll have other events coming up each month and as always - everyone is welcome so invite friends and family!  I'd also like to take a moment to thank all of you who have been supporting our Cooperstown teams' fundraisers.  Those families are immensely thankful for your generosity and hope that you've enjoyed the events.  Also, we are trying something new this year and offering fleece blankets.  You may have seen our Facebook post.  We will have an order form available on this site.  If you are interested in getting one (or two!), please look for them.  Although the weather has been quite pleasant lately, I'm sure there will be some of those late March/early April nights where they will come in real handy!  One lucky winner will be getting one as part of our Registration program!

 

Our annual Dick's Sporting Goods partnership is back.  Dick's Sporting Goods will hold a special League Appreciation Weekend on Saturday, March 4th and Sunday, March 5th for all players, coaches and their family members.  All members will receive 20% off of their purchase!  This promotion is particularly important for our league.  The more purchases made using our e-Coupon increases Dick's sponsorship with our league next season!  In addition, Dick's is offering the same coupons they gave out last year, but this year they are e-Coupons.  You can get them here.  (Please remember the changes to the bat standards for Little League this season.)

 

Last, .... Opening Day is just around the corner!  We are planning a fun-filled event for the afternoon of April 1st.  Our ceremonies will be a little later in the day this year, but it will not be picture day as in years' past.  Picture Day has been moved to later in the season.  There will be more information coming about Opening Day, including rumors of a potential Special Guest!!!

 

I've gotten a lot of feedback on our organization in the last couple of months - some negative, but overwhelmingly positive.  I welcome all of it.  Thank you all for your support.  I can't tell you how excited I am to get back on the field and watch our sluggers go at it!
