HELLO EVERYONE I WOULD LIKE TO FIRST LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT I HAD DECIDED TO CHANGE THE NAME PERMANETLY TO "JERRY'S BULLDOGS"..  THE REASON WHY WE PLAYED AT BASEBALL HEAVEN THIS PAST WEEKEND UNDER THE NAME JERRY'S BULLDOGS WAS BECAUSE THE THE OTHER BULLDOG TEAM FROM BAYSIDE IS USING MY NAME BAYSIDE BULLDOGS.. AND I DIDN'T WANT BASEBALL HEAVEN GET CONFUSED IN SETTING UP A SCHEDULE WITH 2 BAYSIDE BULLDOGS TEAM.. I TRULY BELIEVE THATTHE OTHER BULLDOG TEAM (BAYSIDE BULLDOGS) DOES OR WILL HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES WITHIN IT'S RANKS, PARENTS, AND PLAYERS.. AND NO WAY DO I WANT OR NEED TO BE IN ANYWAY OR FORM ASSOCIATED OR CONFUSED WITH THAT TEAM.....THIS TEAM IS WHERE I WANT IT NOW.. ALL THE TROUBLE MAKERS ARE GONE.. WE HAVE A GREAT BUNCH OF PLAYERS AND PARENTS AND TO TOP IT OFF THEY PLAY GOOD BASEBALL... WE ARE YOUNG AND WILL GROW TOGETHER.. SO REMEMBER YOUR TEAM NAME " JERRY'S BULLDOGS"..

I HAVE ADDED SOME NAMES TO JERRY'S BULLDOGS STAFF... PLEASE VIEW IT .. AND PARENTS PLEASE LET YOU  CHILD VIEW IT ..MANY PEOPLE VIEW MY SITE TO SEE WHAT WE ARE DOING.. AND MANY CHILDREN GO ON ALSO TO CHECK US OUT .. SO LET YOUR CHILD HAVE ACCESS TO HIS TEAMS WEB-SITE ALSO .. IT'S REALLY FOR HIM. I ALSO ADDED PICTURES TO THE ALBUM PART OF WEB SITE... I AM IN THE PROCESS OF ADDING A PHOTO FOR EACH PLAYER ON THE ROSTER PART OF THE SITE.. I WILL HAVE IT COMPLETED IN A FEW DAYS .. BUT YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT THUS FAR.. I ALSO WILL LIKE TO SHARE AN E-MAIL I GOT FROM MR. BERRIOS ..ROBERT "ICEMAN "DAD.. ...THIS E-MAIL REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART.. IT'S NOT JUST  ABOUT ME .. BUTS ITS ABOUT ALL OF YOU . YOUR CHILD, AND MY CHILD.. AND WHAT WE BELIEVE IN .. THE CHILDREN.. ..BELOW IS THE E-MAIL .. YOU CAN REPLY-ALL OR JUST TO HIM IF YOU WANT TO.. .. REGARDLESS I FELT YOU SHOULD READ THIS. 

Jerry,  My son said driving home that it felt great being a Bulldog and playing for a great manager and I agreed. Thanks for making us feel part of the team from day one. Your hospitality, coaching skills and most importantly your fatherly skills towards each and every kid is a gift not everyone has.  The parents were also awesome right from day one.  You told my son and I that your team the Bulldogs would be a great fit for my son and you were definitely right. The Iceman couldn’t stop talking about you and his new teammates. I had a great ride home tonight listening to him talk about this team and of course his favorite manager.    Thanks again Jerry. Awesome coaching this weekend.
