|The Board of Directors would like to welcome Girls Softball and Big League Baseball (boys ages 13-17) to the Peggy Baker Park Complex. If you have any questions or know someone would be eligible to play in these divisions, please have them contact Brian Von Axelson : 228-4424 (Softball) or Roger Frantz : 243-1975 (Big League Baseball).|
Maintenance of our facilities is a big job as you can imagine. Each year, S.O.L.L. asks for a few hours of your time to help get the fields and buildings in shape for the season. This year we'll be working on the fields April 5th from 9-3. If lots of parents pitch in this becomes an easy job, it's a good way to meet people and it's great community service!
|Each year our league has a
celebration day. Due to a conflict with Spring Break and
"Thunder Over Louisville", this year it will be held on the weekend
after the first week of scheduled games, April 19th.
Currently, we have a variety of things scheduled for this day.||The day will open with a parade|
|Fall Ball 2002 was a big success! We are offering you the opportunity to sign up for Fall Ball 2003 now and will guarantee you the 2002 sign up price of $45. Please let the person taking your registration form know that you want to sign up for both. (The Fall Ball fee will be in addition to any family maximum listed above.)|
|The lights are being installed, and should be ready by opening practices. We are still working on contributions for the concession building, donations of materials and services are needed as well as monetary donations. All games will be played at the new fields.|
|Volunteering is a necessity for S.O.L.L. to have a successful season. Requests for volunteers will be done through the Team Moms on a team-by-team basis. To this end, we will need volunteers for Team Moms. This volunteer position is very important for communication about what is happening in the league. We will need a Team Mom for each team. Other areas we will need volunteers for will be the concession stand, and the two days we have field clean-up. We will ask our Team Moms to help us organize volunteers for these areas. If everyone helps out, no one should have to volunteer more than once for his or her respective team. Because of new requirements from Little League, all Managers and Coaches must be run through the State for background checks. Because of this requirement, all Managers will be required to submit a listing of there assistant coaches prior to the beginning of the season.|
|Yeah! There will be no raffle tickets this year. We will still have an opening day, with parade, but we will not have the carnival games, or the auction baskets.|
|There have been a few rule changes to the local rule books that were distributed to coaches last year. An additional page will be distributed to update the rule books from last year.|
|After much debate, the Baseball Committee determined that teams will remain the same again this year. If your child will be playing in the same division as last year, unless you request otherwise, he will automatically be place on the same team. Because of this, only players moving to a new division, totally new players, and players requesting to go back into the draft will be required to attend a try-out. If you have any questions, please contact a board member. Softball teams will be handled differently because of the addition of new teams.|
|We will be using the internet as much as possible again this year. We will be using e-mail to inform parents about the cancellation of games, as well as, the rescheduling of make-up games. We will also use e-mail to pass along other vital information to our families about events going on in the league. You may also use e-mail to get in touch with the league president at SOBaseball@msn.com|
