RIVERS MINOR BASEBALL GETTING READY FOR ANOTHER SEASON
by Aaron Tycoles
I know that the weather is not warm enough for baseball, but it is time to start thinking about baseball for the 2018 Season. We are coming off a very exciting year in 2017 which saw 94 kids registered to play baseball. Rivers was the only community in the region that had teams in every age category.
The excitement continued for the executive as we began construction of a new diamond in the fall that will be used 13 & Under and 15 & Under primarily. This diamond is being built with support from the Rivers & Area Foundation, the Brandon & Area Foundation, Baseball Manitoba, Riverdale Municipality, and the Riverdale CDC and will completed this spring. We are looking forward to continuing to make improvements to the park working jointly with the Comets to do so.
Registration will take place in the beginning of March prior to the league meeting on March 15th. More information will be available soon, including a registration for on our website at www.ballcharts.com/riversminorbaseball.
We are currently looking for minor ball parents, or members of the community who are interested in coaching Tee Ball, 8 & Under, 10 & Under, 12 & Under, 14 & Under or 18 & Under can contact Aaron at 204-761-6264, or by email at email@example.com. Certification is required for all coaches, but Rivers Minor Ball will help cover some of the costs of certification.
Umpires are also an important part of the game and we are looking for kids 12 & Over, or adults who would be interested in umpiring this year. Rivers Minor Baseball will be looking at getting a clinic in town, and covering the costs of the umpire’s clinics for anyone who is interested. Please contact Aaron for more information.
