As the new President, my plan is focus some of our energy on developing our young baseball players and coaches. Our goal is to provide the players and coaches with opportunities and guidance to foster teamwork, respect, discipline and an appreciation for this great game.
Last year, the Board strived on improving policies to provide the best baseball experience for all of our players, parents, community clubs and volunteers.
I look forward to working with everyone, with a goal of providing a rewarding and positive experience to our kids.
