RIVERS MINOR BASEBALL SET FOR 2019
As a long winter draws closer to the end hopefully very soon, and all the snow disappears it is time to start thinking about spring and the upcoming Baseball Season in 2019.
Rivers Minor Baseball has seen incredible growth over the past few years, with over 100 kids playing the game as part of our association in 2018. 103 registered players to be exact. With the new diamond close to be completed and continuing work by the Rivers Baseball Association.to upgrade the facility we are looking forward to another exciting season.
Viterra Field will ready to go this season and will be used for kids of all ages, and with the portable fence will be able to be used as the second diamond for the Senior AA championships this August that the Comets are hosting. The Baseball Association has raised close to $19,000 of the $26,000 budget to complete the diamond through the buy a foot campaign and through the social that was held on New Years Eve. Rivers HELP is also holding a social on March 16th with the proceeds donated back to the project which is greatly appreciated. Tickets are available at locations throughout town.
Minor Baseball registration will take part on Wednesday March 6th as part of the spring registration night at the Riverdale Community Centre. With age groups ranging from Tee Ball for players as young as 4 and 5 years old to 18U. Our 18U team will be hosting the Midwest Regional Championship this July at Comet Field, the first time that Rivers Minor has hosted such an event.
An umpires clinic is also being planned for April, all interested individuals should contact president Aaron Tycoles by the end of March. We are also looking for volunteers, either from parents of volunteers in the community to umpire, help coach or sit on our executive, as well as anyone willing to volunteer at the Regionals or the Senior Provincials.
