    Hey It's Raining Out What Do I Do?

     

    Parents, managers, and fans please read this important message concerning rain, snow, hail, wind-storms, sandstorms, snow storms, just plain bad weather, and re-scheduled cancelled rained out games. We all hate bad weather and canceling games due to it.. BUT sometimes it happens... You can check the Web site and field phone for updated information. Remember sometimes the web site and message MIGHT NOT BE UPDATED..So when bad weather hits or you are unsure if the game you are scheduled to play is gonna go on we have one simple Golden Rule here at RGMVM:

    1- TO BE SURE YOU MUST COME DOWN TO THE FIELD TO SEE IF YOU ARE PLAYING...
    Calling the field the same day, the day before, the week or the night before does not work.. - Sometimes the phone is BUSY.. - Sometimes the message has not been updated.. - Sometimes the phone never stops ringing. So you cannot update the message… Also calling the Division Heads, or the league President, again the same day, the day before, the week or the night before.. IS NOT AN OPTION........ 

    Sometimes you might look out the window and say: "Look at it out there they will never be playing today" Well most of the times we are and you are going to miss the game, or even worse your team forfeits because it did not have enough players.. UGHHH..

    So please remember that one simple RGMVM Golden Rule..

    1- YOU SHOULD COME DOWN TO THE FIELD TO SEE IF YOU ARE PLAYING...
    and everything will be just cool .. :D

    Also managers are required to come down to the field to check the rescheduled date for any rained out games.

    Boy Scout Organizes Ceanup Eent For Ridgewood Glendale Middle Village Maspeth Little League



    Boy Scout organizes cleanup event for Glendale RGMVM fields

    The Ridgewood-Glendale-Middle Village-Maspeth (RGMVM) Little League fields located at 78-11 Woodhaven Blvd. in Glendale got a much-needed cleanup over the weekend thanks to one Boy Scout’s efforts.

    In order to become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), Steve Hansen had to complete a service project for the community. Hansen decided to give back to the little league baseball organization that he played for as a child, the RGMVM Little League.

    “It was his idea to do RGMVM because he has played baseball down there since he was young and he wanted to give something back to the group that was so good to him,” said Steven Hansen Sr., Hansen’s father.

    Hansen hoped to breathe new life into the fields over a three-day span from July 23 to July 25. The plan involved cleaning and repainting the fields’ six dugouts, painting lines in the batting cages, cleaning up garbage from the surrounding fields, installing bat racks into the dugouts, hanging a sign of the Little League Pledge, and refurbishing the parking lot by pulling weeds in the lot, cutting ivy off of the lot’s fencing and repainting the parking lot lines.

    Hansen had to present his project plan and get it approved by both the RGMVM board and the BSA board. Once the project was approved, Hansen was tasked with raising funds for the project, purchasing and getting donations for the supplies needed, recruiting volunteers, and gathering food and beverages for the three-day event.

    For the project, Hansen raised over $1,800 in donations from family, friends, neighbors and local organizations such as the Glendale Kiwanis Club.

    Volunteers and contributors were current scouts, former scouts, friends and family. Over the course of the cleanup effort, Hansen recruited a total of 24 volunteers, who in total put in 143 man-hours of work.

    By the end of the three days the project was nearly complete, with only the installation of the bat racks and the sign to be completed once they arrive.

    “This has been a great learning experience. Scouting has been a big part of our family’s life,” said Kerrie Hansen, Steve Hansen’s mother. “We are thrilled Steven has embraced this project with hard work, determination and persistence that he displayed. Eagle Scout projects like this have to have a huge influence on shaping a young man’s life. It is probably one of the most difficult things they ever tackled.”

    A Special Thank You Message to All Little League Volunteers...



    A Message from the Chairman

    Dr. Gilmour and Greg Warrington
    As hundreds of dedicated Little League® volunteers gathered in Minnesota for the 26th Little League International Congress, it struck me that while we all come from different places with different backgrounds, Little League volunteers are remarkably the same. We are passionate. We are dedicated. And we are working to make Little League the best organization for the children who play baseball and softball.

    At Little League International, every week is National Volunteer Week. The world joins us in thanking volunteers, though, from April 6 to 12, 2014. This year is a special one for Little League. As you know, 2014 is Little League’s Diamond Anniversary. For 75 years, the passion of Little League volunteers has brought the Little League experience to millions of children in thousands of communities in hundreds of countries.

    A lot has changed over 75 years, but Little League is relevant as ever. The lessons of teamwork, dedication and hard work, and the importance of community togetherness will always be valued. And it’s the volunteers like you who instill these tenants of Little League in players, parents and fellow volunteers day in and day out.

    We hope that you take the time to share in this year’s 75th Anniversary celebration by sharing your memories with the Little League Big Legacy Project. This digital mosaic will help bring thousands of great Little League moments together, while supporting Pitch In For Baseball, and helping more children around the world make new Little League memories.

    Click here to share your memory

    As always, we sincerely thank you for all of your time, work and dedication to the Little League program. We wish you the best of luck this season, and we hope you join us in celebrating Little League’s Diamond Anniversary.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour
    Chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors

    Little League International Issues Update Regarding Composite Bats: Moratorium Imposed Immediately

     

    SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Dec. 30, 2010) - Little League International has placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats in the Little League (Majors) Division and all other baseball divisions of Little League, effective immediately.

     

     "Today's decision of the Little League International Board of Directors Executive Committee is based on scientific research data from the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), which was contracted by Little League Baseball," Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. "The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process."

     

    Local Little Leagues were first informed of the research last September.

     

    "From the beginning, and throughout this process, we wanted to keep everyone informed," Patrick W. Wilson, Vice President of Operations at Little League International, said. "Our intent was to provide local league constituents clear direction regarding composite bats. There is a process through which manufacturers can submit individual models for a possible waiver if they wish to seek it. Going forward, we will let our leagues know which ones meet the standards for the Little League Baseball (Majors) 12-and-under divisions, if any."        

     

     

    Sincerely,

    Little League International

    "The Short Swing"

    image_name2
    Punch Down
    Here are more hitting tips from our friends at Clutch Hitting to help your game. THE SHORT SWING......IS SOOO IMPORTANT...
    Click the link above for a full breakdown with pictures!

    When practicing and working on your baseball swing, emphasis must be placed on the hands and the path that the hands must take. Learning a "short" swing and not a "long" swing can aid any hitter from little league to the professional ranks. The concept of getting to the baseball as quickly as possible, going from a set position to contact point, going from point A (set position) to point of contact (point c) can be accomplished in a theory developed even before baseball ever existed: A straight line.
