Continuing Series on Board Roles and Responsibilities:

Message from the Vice President, Christopher Mennillo

The VP role on the Board has been filled by Bill Fredenburg for many years.   This year Bill will be moving to the Trustee position and will continue to actively support Niskayuna Baseball.

This is my second year with Niskayuna Baseball.  Last season I served on the Niskayuna Board as the League Secretary.  I previously served as the Secretary, VP, and eventually President during my five (5) years at Northside Little League (Schenectady).  This year I step into the VP position with an expectation to assist our fine Board and league participants/families as we continue to expand and improve the Niskayuna Baseball league.

The goal as we enter the upcoming season is to continue building a community program that provides quality baseball at all skill levels.  The league continues to look for opportunities to bring families together through our recreation baseball program, hosting of all-star tournaments, and including games by our High School Varsity team on the big field at Blatnick Park.  The coordination of a league this size is no small task and its success is attributed to the men and woman that volunteer, the families that participate, and most importantly the kids that take the field from our young tee-ballers to our Babe Ruth veterans.

I look forward to Spring and seeing you at the park.

Briefly as VP the duties include but are not limited to:

·       Support and backup the President of the league in all aspects

·       Work closely with league coordinator for team and program sponsorship

·       Handle coach selection at all levels with assistance from division commissioners

·       Organize and oversee draft process at the Major and AAA levels

·       Schedule and secure locations for league tryouts for all applicable levels

·       Provide leadership to ensure successful season at the Major and AAA levels

·       Assist coaches with on and off field issues

·       Assist in preparing coaches/players for the transition from Cal Ripken Majors to Babe Ruth

·       Selection of apparel for Niskayuna Baseball store

I’m looking forward to the upcoming year and serving the Niskayuna Baseball community.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email.

Message from the Treasurer, Rand Booth 


The Treasurer role on the Board has been filled by Ben Gabriele for many years.  This year, Ben is moving to the Trustee position.

 

First, we would like to extend our sympathies to Ben and his family, as his father Bernardi passed away this week.   Bernardi was a frequent spectator at his grandson Michael’s baseball games throughout the years, and was a great supporter of Niskayuna Baseball.   Please share your condolences with Ben, as we are sure this a difficult time for him and the family.

 

Briefly, as Treasurer the duties include:

  • Dispense league funds as approved by the Board.
  • Receive all monies and securities, and deposit into the League account
  • Report on the status of league funds.
  • Keep an exact count of all receipts and expenditures.
  • Pay all bills in a timely manner.
  • Undertake any such other duties as requested by the Board
  • Keep records for the receipt and disbursement of all monies and securities and provide a financial report as requested specifying the status of league funds.
  • Prepare an annual financial budget, under the direction of the President and former treasurer to submit to the Board.
  • Provide a written year-end financial report to the Board
  • Ensure that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.
  • Follow Bylaws as established by the Board’s charter

 

I’m looking forward to this role this year, and we intend as a Board to share more information on our financials as we can.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

2013 Survey Results

The Niskayuna Baseball Board would like to thank all that participated in our 2013 season survey.

Over 26% of the League responded on short notice, from across all age groups.  We appreciate the feedback and spent our last Board meeting reviewing the results and comments.

We are going to incorporate many learnings from the survey into the 2014 season, and we hope all will see how your feedback help contributes to the direction of the league.

To see the survey results without the comments, click below or visit the hand outs section.

Please note this year, Spring Travel tryouts are targeted for end of January and early February.

Have an enjoyable holiday season, and remember registration will open by January 10.
