On Wednesday October 10th at 7:30 we will be holding an open house for anyone interested in joining the Easton Baseball League Board. It’ll be held at The Redding Road House and hosted by the Reilly family who are the owners, a league sponsor and members of our league. For anyone interested it’d be a good time to break bread, hang out with neighbors and learn a little bit more about the league and what we’re trying to accomplish.
Personally I’ve had the pleasure of being a board member for over 8 years. As you may imagine my perception has changed over the years. First you start off because of your own kid then quickly learn it’s about so much more. What I ultimately came to understand and the reason I remain involved today is because it’s a great way to give serve to this community. Sports teaches great life lessons and cares little for gender or the color of your skin. Most importantly it’s about providing healthy, affordable options for our children. Whether it’s this game, soccer, lacrosse or a recreation league the benefits remain the same with lasting friendships and memories at the topping the list.
Our needs are not dependent on having knowledge of the game or experience on the field. Don’t let this thought prevent from believing you can contribute. Our board supports everything from event planning to buying equipment. What’s needed is having a passion for providing the best experience possible for our players and members. It’s truly a labor of love. And yes, it has its ups and downs
My last comment for those around the league is regarding one simple truth. We are a small town and as much as decisions seem to be a mystery, the output of a few or self-driven it’s always comes down to match. We’re a small town just trying to figure out how many teams we can put on the field. In comparison our league is healthy than larger towns. This is direct reflection of those who came before us and to those serve the league today. We do our best and understand we’re a work in progress.
Please join us or raise your hand by responding to me or one of my friends on the Board.
Kerry Caylor (President, EBL)
