Be Kind to your Umps!
Getting ready for the season involves a lot of things! One thing that always seems to slip under the cracks is arming your umps with knowledge. Anyone can order a rule book now...they are no longer guarded material...so please when your season starts...order rule books for your volunteer umpires...depending on the new rates, extra rule books are only $2 for a league to order...$7 for individuals.

CHALLENGER LEAGUES
As some of you may not know we have two new challenger leagues this year. Both Painesville and Geneva United LL will be offering the challenger division this year. Challenger league is available to kids from age 4 to 18, or up to age 22 if still in high school,  who are physically or mentally challenged. It gives them a chance to play baseball in the sun...in a supportive manner. The people who help are called "buddies" as they help the player to participate in the game. When I went to our league in Brecksville I was fortunate enough to meet a lady who was close to 80 years young. She was living in an assisted home and came to volunteer for the challenger league. Jim Cipriani (N.E.O. Challenger President), told me the old people at the home didn't do enough so she wanted to volunteer to help. She came every week and was a buddy to many kids. Friendships are made here for the goal of helping a child to play! It doesn't get simpler than that! I recommend that all our league's staff take a day and make a point of going to visit a Challenger League. So if you have a child who is challenged or if you want to volunteer your time contact the local league in your area to sign up...it will help you put into perspective life's daily routines we take for granted. Even though you may not live in Geneva or Painesville, your child is still eligible to play there so long you are in our District. The Challenger League is also available in Brecksville.
