Baseball registration, league name contest and ballfield improvement update
The team of representatives and board members from each baseball league has been working diligently with Barry Silverberg to get the final legal details of non-profit status together. While the new organization is not complete, we realize its time to start registering for spring baseball!
To simplify the spring registration process, parents interested in registering their children for baseball will go ahead and register with Round Rock Youth Baseball, Sam Bass Baseball or Old Settlers Express Baseball as done in the past. Please contact your league directly to get early registration information. The new unified league, which has yet to be officially named, will take registrations in the summer and fall.
We need a NAME!
We keep calling this new league we’re forming the “unified league” or “new league we’re forming.” It needs a name! The current leagues have pitched in to create a $100 cash prize for a league naming contest.
How it works: Submit your league name idea as a comment to this blog post. When you register for the blog, we’ll have your name and contact information, therefore if your league name is selected we can contact you and give you the $100 prize. The contest runs from today through 5 pm December 21.
The current group of team representatives and board members that have been working on the unified organization process will select the winning league name at a meeting in January. In the event that two people submit the exact same winning name, the first person to submit the idea to the blog post will receive the $100 prize. This contest is open to participants of all ages, so put your thinking caps on and let’s come up with a great league name!
Ballfield Improvement Update
At the November 21 City Council meeting Chasco was awarded the contract for Part A of the construction project. This includes all the water line, sewage and parking lots. Construction is to begin approximately January 1. The city is in the final negotiations on the contract for Part B which is the beginning of the field renovations and girls softball complex upgrades. The city hopes to announce the final construction schedule soon. This project is going to make our ballfield complex one of the premier facilities in Texas! We’ll keep you updated on developments.
