                     Pee Wee Umpire Meeting

There will be a meeting for anyone interested in Umpiring at the Pee Wee Level on Saturday, April 19th at 9 am.  

This meeting will take place on the International Field.  

We will have a representative from the Capital District Umpire Association on hand to go over a few techniques on how to call a game.

If you are interested, please plan on attending.  If you have any questions, please contact Ron Filkins at roncoloniell@gmail.com 



Opening Day 2014

*The parade will begin promptly at 9 am.  

*All players should meet their coaches and teams at the corner of Sharon  and Tanglewood at 8:30 am.

*All families can watch the Opening Ceremonies at the Major Field after the parade.

*Coaches will "hand off" their players to the parents at the end of the ceremony.

*Only Coaches and Managers will be walking with their teams in the parade. Tball parents are able to walk in the parade, but only coaches will be permitted on the field for the Opening ceremonies.




St. Louis Cardinals Manager, Mike Matheny, was asked to coach his son’s baseball team.

Believing the biggest problem in youth sports is overbearing parents, he decided to write a letter to them, addressing his concerns and expressing conditions he required from his team’s moms and dads.

The long, detailed letter was initially meant for only those with children on his team, but it eventually became the Matheny Manifesto, an impactful, direct, and honest message parents everywhere can learn from.

With many baseball and softball seasons just beginning, we encourage you to watch the Matheny Manifesto Video which appeared on ESPN during the 2013 Little League Baseball® World Series.

The video features Little League’s president and CEO, Stephen D. Keener, and provides important ways you can best support your Little Leaguer®.

I am brave and strong and talented.  But I’m still just a kid.  I am not perfect.  I am a work in progress.  I need you to be patient while I test the limits of my body and work through the emotions that come with success and failure.  When I make a mistake, I wonder if you’ll be disappointed.  When I reach my goals, I look to see if you are watching.  I am a youth athlete.  I love my sport.  You call it a completion.  I call it playing the game.  I am a youth athlete.  I am YOUR youth athlete.  Winning feels great, but your praise feels infinitely better.  Please remember these things and I promise to do my best and make you proud.
