Message:

Dear Niskayuna Baseball Players and Families,

My name is Christopher Mennillo and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and share some exciting news for 2015.   I was recently elected as the 2015 President for Niskayuna Baseball.  I have been volunteering in youth baseball programs for many years including the past two (2) season here at NBL.   I consider an honor and a privilege to serve as the Board President and I look forward to continuing to build on the success that the program has enjoyed over the past several years.

The first and what I think will be the most exciting and beneficial project I am working on is winter workouts for ALL players that are interested in practicing and working on their skills over the winter months. In the past, some teams had independently participated in their own work outs and the league had provided smaller scale workouts for specific levels. We are expanding this to ensure all players have the opportunity to participate and 2014 managers have been asked to not do independent work outs and to encourage players to work out with their teammates and friends.

The logistics of this program are still being developed and we are very close to rolling it out.   More information will be sent out by the league in regards to signing up, price and commitment.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at any time.  I look forward to the 2015 season!

Sincerely,
Christopher Mennillo

Message from Board of Directors

Niskayuna Baseball is aware of the novel Saving Babe Ruth and acknowledges that this is the author Thomas Swyers recollection of some events that are similar to the true events that had taken place in the Town of Niskayuna over the past several decades.
 
Many Board Members and members of the community (including Mr. Swyers) have spent their personal time to make Niskayuna Baseball the success it is today.
 
Niskayuna Baseball continues to provide recreational and higher level programming for over 600 children ages 5-18.
 
We are encouraged with the relationship between Niskayuna Baseball and the High School Administration and Sports Programs, and work diligently to increase communication and a positive  relationship to benefit the players, students and community as a whole.
 
Niskayuna Baseball acknowledges the good work that Mr. Swyers has done to get the league where it is today, but recognizes that Saving Babe Ruth is a novel based on some true events and shared with the liberties allowed an author to make a story more interesting to read.

The Board looks forward to continue to grow Baseball in the Niskayuna community, and is excited by the upcoming 2015 season.

New Board of Directors for 2015

The Board of Directors was elected for the 2015 campaign.  We'd like to thank Brud Cutting, Ashley Edwards and Eric Whitley for their leadership and volunteering to the league over the past many years.  We'd also like to thank Tom Spataro for the past 5 years of being President leading the league and spending a tremendous amount of hours every week to ensure baseball is thriving and available to everyone in the community.  Tom has shifted to a Trustee role for next year.  Lastly we would like to thank their spouses and families for allowing them to contribute to the overall league in general with countless hours, emails and phone calls away from the family - they are the unsung heros.

The new Board for 2015 brings two fresh perspectives.  Angela Antonikowski and Dave Fields.  Welcome!  We're glad to have you both!
