Bettendorf/PV Youth Baseball: Welcome

Tuesday, July 1
The President's message (July 1, 2014):


Welcome back to our website!

Our 2014 season is wrapping up with all-star games and postseason league tournaments this month.
 
On behalf of the entire BPV Board of Directors, thank you to all of the parents, players, coaches and sponsors that have made for another fantastic summer of baseball in our community.
 
As we look to the end of this season, and peek forward to the 2015 season, there will be several openings on the Board, with "old timers" (myself included) stepping aside and finally retiring from this very worthwhile effort and organization.
 
We sincerely hope you will consider volunteering to help out the league in some way in the future, whether as a coach or just as importantly as a behind-the-scenes board member (or both in some cases).
 
From trophies and medals, to team and individual pictures, to concessions, sponsorships, fundraising, game equipment and league management, there's much to do in assuring more than 600 local youngsters annually get to play baseball in our city-wide league.
 
To find out ways to help, please contact one of our league represenatives:
 
Pinto League (8-and-under): Tim Truesdell (359-3765/ttruesdell@christianfamilychurch.org)
Mustang League (9-10 year-olds): Thom Leonard (343-6396/thom4bears@yahoo.com)
Bronco League (11-12): Bob Tappa (499-4702/rftappa@gmail.com)
Pony League (13-14): Don Wendel (271-7046/dwendel@windstream.net)
Colt League (15-19): Steve Tappa (676-8111/tappa@qconline.com)
 
Umpires also are needed, and compensated for their work in all leagues except Pinto (where a parent from each team is asked to umpire those games). If interested, please apply with one of the above league directors.

Fundrasing always is needed, too, wanted and very much appreciated! Please let us know if you can help with this aspect.
 
During July, we are part of the Birdies for Charity fundraiser run by the PGA's John Deere Classic. The program provides prize incentives for donors and guarantees all money raised on behalf of BPV goes directly to fund special projects such as equipment, lights, scoreboards and scholarships. Our goal again this year is to get all of our supporters to continue to pledge at least one simple penny. This small pledge (which would be about $16-$20 indvidually) would help us easily surpass our goal of $5,000, and that total would not include the additional 5 to 10% of John Deere’s Bonus Bucks (money given to BPV based on the percentage of money we raise compared to other charities).
 
Birdies for Charity is 100% tax deductible. Just email your name, address, phone number and guess for the number of birdies made during the tournament (July 7-13) -- as well as the amount you would like to donate -- to jborbeck@cbmsonline.com. Every pledge card filled out is a chance to win a 2014 Chevy Cruze, as well as many other fantastic prizes (JD riding mower and more), and there is no limit to the number of pledge cards you can submit. Any questions, contact Jay Borbeck at 563-260-0816.
 
 
Jim Smith,
BPV Board President
