Little League preps for 23rd year

The Cayman Islands Little League is slated to host its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 30 October, at 6pm in the upstairs clubhouse at the 
Field of Dreams.

The organisation is heading into its 23rd year of operation, after being founded in 1990. Tuesday’s meeting is intended for parents, coaches, volunteers and the general public to discuss the league’s accounts, future projects and current issues.

In addition, there is slated to be an election of directors. At the last AGM, Paul Gallagher was elected league president, Jeff Pouchie is vice president, Paul Harris is baseball commissioner and Jason Bechard is treasurer. Latoya McField is programme and facilities director, Sara MacKay is public relations coordinator and Pam Parsons is fundraising coordinator.

The various division coordinators include: Cheyanna Stewart (T-Ball), Michael Johns (Pony), Ann Serrant (Single A), Alero Abrams (Double A), Jason Bechard (Triple A), Jonathan Dacosta (Seniors), Jeremy Rice (Girls softball) and Alan Markoff (adult co-ed softball). Little League stages its AGM as the Fall Ball programme heads into its second month. The 2012 campaign, which started in mid-September, has seen smaller numbers but most of the kids find the programme to be instructive, developmental and fun.

Fall Ball practices are taking place three times a week at 5.30pm at the Field of Dreams facility 
in George Town.

Single A (for kids aged 9-10) and Double A (11-12) take the field on Tuesdays, with Pony (7-8) and Girls Softball (11-16) on Wednesdays and Triple 
A (13-15) on Thursdays.

Games, which run until 1 December, are slated for every Friday from 5pm and on Saturdays from 4pm. On Fridays, T-Ball (5-6) and Pony play at 5.15-6.30pm with A at 6.45-8pm. On Saturdays, Girls Softball is at 4-5.30pm with 
AA and AAA at 6-7.30pm.

In the face of inclement weather, the co-ed softball playoffs are still ongoing. Semi-finals across the top three divisions are taking place this week along with the division four finals.

Little League action will soon have more flair via scoreboards. Two are currently in place with two more on the way, all made possible by donations from the last auction.

There are plans for score-keeping clinics in the near future.
