Good afternoon all!
We have a lot of housekeeping items to go over so I apologize in advance for the novel you are about to read. I suggest a nice beverage before starting.
Thank you to those that picked up your uniforms. For the others, I have given the uniform box to Coach Wallace to hand out pregame. Remember to wear you black shirt, black socks and black hat. The color of the pants are up to you.
With a 11:15a game on Saturday, please plan on arriving around 10:45a. There is most likely a game before us and we won't have much space to warm up other than a short throw in the grass on the side. If anything, arriving earlier than just before the first pitch allows us coaches to set a lineup and fielding position schedule so everyone gets a shot at the infield and outfield positions, as well as, their turn at being the leadoff or clean-up hitter!
When we have games at Chandler during the week, we are responsible to provide one parent to work the Snack Shack for 1 hour (the American League game will provide 1 parent to work the other 1 hour during the game). Here is a list of our Chandler games and I just allocated parents based on last name. It worked out to put two sets of parents for each game although we only need one of you to help. But, if you cannot make a game, we'll just swap with another parent to make sure we have coverage.

SLUGFEST & PICTURE DAY
CRNAA's Slugfest & Skills Challenge Competition and Fundraiser AND Picture Day will be held on Saturday 05/08/2021 at Chandler Fields. In order to make improvements to our fields, etc., Slugfest acts as our annual fundraiser and as a great family-friendly, exciting, hitting/skills contest for all of our players. This year, we have combined Picture Day on this date which will also be at Chandler.
It is the tradition for each team to create a "team basket" that will be raffled off during Slugfest. The team basket may have a theme (be creative!) and may have an approximate value of $100. The actual value will depend on how much we can collect as a team to go towards creating this basket. While you can donate whatever you are comfortable with donating, we normally collect $10 from each player to go towards creating this basket. Delia (Gianni's Mom) has volunteered to organize this basket. THANK YOU!!!
Whew! That was a lot! Unfortunately, Ryan and I will not be at our first game. He's bummed but we have a State Cup soccer game and he's the Goalie!
Looking forward to a great season! Go Orioles!
