Final Season Notes

David Jarnes's picture

Our just concluded playoffs clearly demonstrated what is right about this league. Sure we have our numerous differences along the way, but in the end there were outstanding competitve games. Springfield won the playoffs and the regular season, but every one of the four playoff games that Springfield played were decided by one or two runs. Kudos to Teddy and Mark for organizing such an enjoyable weekend for everyone.One of the umpires at our games gave our league an unsolicited compliment,commending us on how we make he and his co-workers feel so welcomed personally. However, the season is not done yet. Next Sunday, August 23 our C and D world series teams will be playing against our counterparts from the Providence league beginning at 1 PM at Clark Street school in Waterford Ct.. Everyone is invited to attend and join in the socialization and food at Oneil's Brass Rail in New London after the game. And of course there is the Gay Softball World Series in Milwaukee beginning August 30. We may also be putting together a couple of teams to compete in the Providence tournament over Columbus Day weekend. This should be a lot of fun and with considerably less travel and expenses than the usual DC tournament. My counterpart from Providence, Jonathan Ricci, should have more information next Sunday.
I will be attending the national NAGAAA meetings August 29 and 30th in Milwaukee. I will have a report of the meetings following the GSWS.
If anyone is seriously considering running for my current position as commissioner, I will provide he/she with the necessary information relative to required filings with NAGAAA, the IRS and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, where we are incorporated as a 501C4 non-profit organization.
Finally, I am deeply touched by the beautiful plaque given to me today honoring my years of service to this league. I truly honored and will cherish this plaque forever.
Thank you,
David Jarnes
