Pelham Baseball 2016 Year-in-Review

 

Pelham Baseball 2016 Year-in-Review

2016 was a busy year for Pelham Baseball.  The program took on a number of new and innovative initiatives beginning with a new snack shack and announcer’s booth.  The snack shack provided fans and players with a wide assortment of food, beverage and treat options and served as a great place for players and parents to mingle and share their thoughts on the games of the day.  The announcer’s booth allowed for players to listen to the sounds of the game ranging from the national anthem and warm-up tunes to their name being called as they came to the plate.  In addition, players and parents were treated to a series of new features to the program including.

 

• Major League Baseball-sponsored Pitch, Hit and Run competition prior to opening day

• Eleven-Year-Old Travel Tournament Team (the Predators) which took part in the Nationals Tournament held in Myrtle Beach, SC

• Summer tournament team(s) covering all ages 8 and up.  Teams represented Pelham well as they competed in tournaments held in Tyngsboro, MA and Manchester, NH including placing first in the Hollis-Brookline 9U tournament

• Introducing competitive baseball to the AA Minors division with features including player pitching and catching development

• New apparel options including extra comfy fleece blankets, hooded sweatshirts and player-customized decals and water bottles

 

These new features were coupled with some great continuing traditions including an opening day ceremony which paid tribute to the selfless work of the Ketelaar family to the program, the annual Challenger Under the Lights game, picture day and an off-season training opportunity for all players at Play Ball’s facility in Salem, NH.  In addition, we were treated to some tremendous regular season baseball which saw the Timber Rattlers capture the AAA Minors title and the Royals won an extended playoff series against the Rockies.  

At the end of the year the program sought input from its participants in a year-end survey.  The long hours and commitment by the board members, coaches and volunteers appears to have paid off.  When asked about the overall satisfaction with the program and its direction a whopping 92% responded in the affirmative and 83% said they planned to have their children continue on in the next year and 82% responded that they would refer Pelham Baseball to other families.  93% also said that the coaching within the program was of top-notch quality.

Among the comments submitted in the survey..

 

 “Outstanding communication and commitment shown by coaches. Thank you all!”

“Big bonus points for the TROPHIES given to the t-ball players this year. My son just was thrilled to receive an actual trophy (as opposed to a medal) Thanks for giving those out. I also appreciated that the t-ball coaches pitched to the kids towards the end of the season.”

“This year was a huge improvement from last year with all the practices and games. Our child has improved his skills and attitude a lot due to these changes. Thank you.”

 

While the overall feeling towards the program shows a positive direction the Board also acknowledges there is still much more work to do and challenges to overcome.  In particular, providing more practice time, additional games and the continued pursuit of helping develop better coaches and players.  The Board will also continue to strive to provide timely and informative communication and work hard to ensure umpires are properly coordinated and any field assignment changes or game cancellations are conveyed as efficiently as possible.

The Board is also continuing to explore ways to enhance the program's offerings including exploring the re-introduction of Babe Ruth baseball and even new snack shack features.  While everyone seemed to love the ice cream there is always the yearning for slushies, pizza and other prepared foods as well as continuing to enhance the ability to provide more reliable credit card payment for food and apparel.  These, and other improvements, are always up for consideration as the program continues to grow.

As always, the program is only as good as those who volunteer their time to its continued success.  The Board is grateful to the selfless and passionate work it receives each year from everyone who participate.  While donations are always welcome the most valuable is that of time.  There is always the need for more volunteers and we welcome anyone interested to step forward and get involved.  If not you, then who?

More than anything, the Board would like to thank all parents who entrust their children’s well-being and commitment to allowing their players to learn and grow in the game that we all love.  The mission statement of Pelham Baseball is ..”to create a safe and healthy environment for children to develop their baseball skills as well as learn the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.”  With that in mind the players are always foremost in all the planning and work that is done each year and we hope for another great year to follow.

Little League International Baseball Age Requirement

Little League International implemented a new age range for the 2017 season.  The primary reason for this change is to make the Little League Baseball Division, known as the Pelham Baseball Majors Division, a 12 and under program.  No child playing in this division will turn 13 years of age during their final season of eligibility.  For this reason, the age cutoff for a season will change from 12/31 to 8/31 of the calendar year.

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
