2013-2014 News

Posted by Saugerties Little League on Jun 26 2013 at 08:47AM PDT in 2013 Season

Dear Little League Community,

As all of our All-Star teams are still in play, and some folks are gearing up for Fall Ball, I felt it important to communicate with all of you as we approach the ultimate conclusion of the 2012-2013 season to provide a few updates.

This year our Board was responsible for a number of significant decisions.
We revised the age-old tradition of a Baseball Opening Day! This celebration of all things baseball/softball was a marvelous event and one that speaks to the traditions and the grand sport we all hold so dear.
We approved the use of Patched Umpires for our Boys and Girls Majors Divisions, and Girls Seniors Divisions. The use of the KBUA, and KSUA groups was considered a great success, and was afforded completely by our Concessions efforts. Thanks to you if you volunteered in this regard!!!
We consolidated our Boys Majors Division from 9 teams to 8. This was the number of teams that existed prior to the merge of Glasco and Saugerties several year ago, and was seen as an important step towards maintaining a standard of play that we are accustomed to in Saugerties!
We have approved a field use plan that will finally provide for “skinned fields” for our Girls Divisions as is the trend and best practice in Girls Softball. These field upgrades will be an ongoing project coordinated with the Town Parks and Recreation.
We oversaw the final touches on a newly minted Fence and ultimate drainage project on the Davi Field in Glasco
We are providing for portable fencing for Field #6 as well as a new “stadium” style fencing for Field #2
While there may be other accomplishments these stand out, and by the way were in the midst of a very busy regular season schedule in which 100% of ALL Board members participate themselves as Coaches, Managers, and busy Spectating Parents!!

This September we will be revising our Constitution to provide for the election of Board of Directors in September. This is an important step in hopefully seeing greater involvment of more volunteers in the planning for the upcoming year. There are currently an extensive number of anticipated vacancies, and all interested parties should take note: Little League does not happen without VOLUNTEERS.

The attached information should outline the details. See a Board Member if you have any questions or interest.

Thanks, and have a great end to the 2012-2013 Season!
