Via Sue Sutherlin League Information Officer/Webmaster for the San Lorenzo Valley Little League
Opening Day, almost a week ago, boasted picture-perfect weather and an outstanding program, complemented by awesome breakfast burritos early in the day, followed by traditional grilled hot dogs and hamburgers served up by the always-friendly volunteers at the snack bar (MANY thanks to new snack bar coordinators Katie Snyder and Chuck Wise for overseeing this HUGE, very important part of our league, and to Steven Shabry for being willing to share his expertise to help facilitate a smooth transition)!
Games have started (barely - already a few rained out . . . more on that in a minute), and we're working on getting game results posted as quickly as possible. If you don't see your scores within a couple of days of your game, please contact webmaster Sue Sutherlin or head scorekeeper Scott Murray with your game results, and we'll get those scores updated as soon as possible.
CANCELLATIONS . . .
ALL games scheduled for Saturday, March 19, have been canceled due to weather-related field closures. For the upper divisions (Majors, Minors and AA), division reps and the fields coordinator, along with the umpire in chief, will determine when make-up games will be. Since no standings are kept at the lower levels (A and T-ball), no plans are made at this time to make up those games (although individual managers are welcome to work together to perhaps schedule a make-up game during one of your practice times).
POSTPONED . . .
The t-ball clinic scheduled for this Sunday, March 20, is being postponed. Watch the web site for the new date!
NO DECISION YET . . .
regarding the pitching clinic, also scheduled for Sunday, but check on the web site by Saturday evening for the most up-to-date information.
While I've got your attention, I'd like to let you know about some fun events in the near future, specifically targeted for Little League families.
Sunday, April 17, 2011 - 6th Annual San Lorenzo Valley Day at San Jose Giants! By now all managers should have received tickets for their players (cost was included in registration, and if you don't have tickets yet, division reps should be getting them to you soon), and there are more available for purchase/sale (a portion of the money from ticket sales helps to support SLVLL). Several fun events are planned for that day, please refer to the SLVLL web site for more details.
Sunday, June 5, 2011 - Little League Day at AT&T Park - Watch the SF Giants with thousands of Little Leaguers and their families! SLVLL has bought a block of 250 tickets to sell to our local community. A portion of every ticket ($20/ticket) comes back to our SLVLL. A separate email will go out to team parents, letting them know how tickets can be purchased. Think how much fun it would be to go to a big-league game, to see World Series champs SF Giants play against the Colorado Rockies, with a group of SLV families! Please check the SLVLL web site for more details!
For all the above events, you can find full details at the SLVLL web site www.SLVLittleLeague.org. And while you're visiting the site, please check out your child's team page; check to make sure your child's name is spelled correctly, and if you find mistakes anywhere on the site, feel free to let me know!
