Don E. Lambert, 69, of Pen Argyl, passed away early Wednesday morning, April 2, 2014, at his residence. He served as Sectional Director of the Pennsylvania State Legion Baseball from 1990 to 2001 and Regional Director from 1991 to 2014. He coached Junior and Senior Legion baseball leagues and in 1997 was inducted into the Department of Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2001 the Northampton County American Legion Baseball League Hall of Fame. He will be sadly missed by his NORCO Legion family.
 
There has been a change in the structure of our organization with Lehigh West Bethlehem withdrawing from the League. Wind Gap will move from the East Division to the West Division in order to maintain balance thruout the league.. The League will have an 18 game schedule with 16 teams this year. The League Champion must be decided by July 16th. Region 2 will hold their playoffs at Muhlenberg starting July 19th.
 
We ask all teams to please get the dates of your graduations, proms, baccalaureates, and any other conflicts that may occur with the scheduling of games for the season. Please send them to Bob Shebelsky ras@depuyholdings.com, before he draws up the schedule. All changes must be submitted to Bob by May 18th. The Deppe All Star Classic has been scheduled for June 7th @ 12:30 PM. This frees up May 31st to be used for any schedule changes. After the schedule has been finalized, changes must be sent to Chick, Frank D'Angelo & Joe Long. 
 
Registration is underway. Links have been posted for easy access.
 
Future meeting dates: May 18, June 8, July 13, August 3; Clambake August 8.  Mark your calendar.


NOTE: Freemansburg has been selected for the Regionals for 2015. Contact Chris Medei at chrism9@ptd.net with ideas for making it a Home Run for NORCO Legion.
