Thanks for Using Our 2015 Site

 Again this year we are posting the District 8 Tournament Rules and Guidelines. Hopefully, they will give the fans more understanding as to why teams travel or not, and what we District Representitives expect to find when we show up at a tournament site. Our goal is always to send the best team to the next level, as safely as possible, within the Little League rules. Go to the handouts section to download the word document.

If you find any mistakes or have any questions a nice email would be appreciated.

Be advised that tournament schedules can change right up to the start of the tournament! Little League Inc. MANDATES that we accept changes up to the last minute. Do not blame the District staff if you get it wrong because you didn't keep checking!

A Piece of the Puzzle
Our two grandsons and granddaughter-in-law recently took on the challenge of coaching a t-ball team of 4-6 year olds in 
Delmar.  They had some frustrating times especially in getting other parents to fulfill the required concession stand duty, but they
 persevered and worked very hard to give their charges the best experience they could provide. This is what one of their parents 
wrote and it made them feel that their efforts were noticed and appreciated. This is what Little League is all about.
 "Thank you for your sweet dedication and love you give to our children. Loving ones, loud ones, quiet ones, hard headed ones
 and shy ones. You help form a puzzle piece for their future. You are to be commended. :" 
 Let's all resolve to be a positive puzzle piece in the lives of these kids.

Personal Note

As some of you know,  and many do not, my wife Patty, formally Assistant District Administrator for Little League Baseball  was inducted into the Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Fame in November of 2009.  To my knowledge she is the first purely Little League person to be so honored.  She was asked to provide a resume and I have posted it in the General handouts section. If you have a few minutes, take the time to read it. There was little news coverage, but we are all very proud of her.
