Copyright 2013 Asbury Park Press All Rights Reserved Asbury Park Press (New Jersey) May 3, 2013 Friday SECTION: NEWS HEADLINE: Berkeley Little League manager suspended after assault charges BYLINE: Nicholas Huba and Stephanie Loder :: The words on the big, green sign on the outfield fence of Berkeley Little League field 2 state simply "Have Fun." For parents, coaches and youngsters, the last two days at the Berkeley Little League Moorage Complex have been anything but a good time. On Friday, a township Little League manager accused of slapping a 17-year-old umpire after he was ejected from a game was suspended indefinitely from the league, said Bob Everett, president of Berkeley Little League. He is barred from returning to the complex and all Little League functions, Everett said. "He can't be here at the complex. His kids are welcome to play baseball and we're hoping that they will," Everett said. Everett said the league's Board of Directors met Friday night in closed session to discuss the future of Th ...

Would You Know What to Do to Save a Life? *Your friend has just been stung by a bee. His face is starting to swell. Do you know what to do? **Your child is enjoying a hot dog at the Little League game when suddenly she stops talking, is turning red and clutching her throat. How do you help her? The answers to these and many other emergency-related questions are as close as your smart phone when you download the free American Red Cross First Aid app. As springtime and summertime activities take people out and about, having basic first aid information close at hand can make all the difference in an emergency. The app gives step-by-step instructions on what to do in a variety of emergency situations from heart attack and stroke, to burns, to broken bones to poisoning and more. The app is not a substitute for formal Red Cross first aid training, but it will help you know what do to until emergency medical help arrives. And that could save a life. Play and stay safe this spring and summer, and let the free Re ...

Thank you Netflix! 3) I just found out my daughter Jessica (3rd grader) is one of the "best hitters" on her softball team, and she's been bumped up to play with the 4th and 5th graders. As a guy who hit cleanup in Little League and Babe Ruth baseball, that makes a me proud :) 4) My other daughter sang "Danny Boy" today and killed it: so work this week has been brutal and long, but life is great!

Guys. This is the major league, not little league. We know how to hold on to the ball here.
I thought the Ranger's fielding would look less little league without Hamilton. I was so wrong.

A workshop for coaches and parents tonight Washington District 1 Little League and Pacific Little League presents : Mastery Approach to Coaching-A Sport Psychology Workshop with Dr. Frank Smoll -University of Washington March 11, 2013, 6:45 p.m. sign-in, 7:00-8:15 p.m. workshop Meadowdale High School, Great Hall 6002 168th Street SW Lynnwood, WA 98037 How Can Coaches Increase Their Effectiveness? In answering this question, over 35 years of research has been conducted on coaching behaviors and their effects on young athletes. A sport psychology training program was developed and tested in this research. The program, which is known as the Mastery Approach to Coaching, is the only scientifically validated coaching-education workshop that has been shown to produce the following outcomes: • Fosters positive coach-athlete relations • Increases the amount of fun that athletes experience • Creates greater team cohesion • Promotes higher mastery-oriented achievement goals in sports and in school • Incre ...
The irrepressible comic actor who enjoyed the high life a little too much after Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day and was in a career abyss until Lost In Translation. Murray’s Irish Catholic parents, Lucille and Edward (a lumbar salesman and keen golfer), had nine children. Bill is the fifth child and his siblings are Brian Doyle-Murray, Nancy, Edward, Andy, John Murray, Joel Murray, Peggy, and Laura. He worked as a golf caddy, to pay his tuition to Loyola Academy, a Jesuit school in his hometown. There, he played sports and did some acting, but was more fond of entertaining his peers than concentrating on the lessons. This sort of behaviour got him thrown out of both Boy Scouts and Little League, and wasn’t well-received at school. One of his teachers described Murray as “brilliant but a terrible student”. He was, however, a voracious reader until about the age of fourteen, devouring books of all kinds. The Murray household was a busy place and not always easy for so many children competing for thei ...
hey y'all...SO PUMPED about the scrimmage on Wednesday in North Port. Erics Little League team is in the Majors division with a record of 6-1. This should be a fun time. Atwater Park is where we will be playing. From the Highway (75) you would get off at Toledo Blade BLVD and go to Price BLVD and turn left. Go about 3-4 miles and the park signs will be on the right. FYI if you want to grab a bite to eat after the game, Buffalo Wings and Wings is a great place close to the field on the corner of Toledo Blade and Price.
My Sunday column, on trying not to embarrass my daughter: It’s something every parent faces eventually. I’ve reached the point with my kids — even the youngest — when I have to monitor my reactions of pride in their accomplishments. It begins with them PRETENDING like they’re embarrassed when you cheer for them. They roll their eyes, but they’re secretly glad to see an actual demonstration of joy over their success. You still get a pass for hooting, fist pumping, and shouting, “That’s my baby!” And then, they become TRULY embarrassed when you go gonzo over a school award, piano recital or sports achievement. Think Steve Martin in the movie “Parenthood” when his kid finally makes the winning catch for his Little League baseball team. He jumps, throws his caps, hoots, scissor-walks, picks up his son in a bear hug, walks on his knees, and flops down on his stomach to beat the ground before flipping over on his back kicking and waving his arms. Oh, how I long to do this. But it’s not c ...

1. A four-year-old child, whose next door Neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his Wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old Gentleman's' yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

Jack had his first Little League practice today and did very well. Now I am Coach Wilson, how did that happen. It was fun working with the kids and teaching them some basics.

This is why we mandate Rutgers training, why we have certified trainers and our own clinicians. Why we have more and do more. Prepare for Medical Emergencies at Youth Sporting Events It’s that time again. Pitchers and catchers have begun reporting to spring training. Soon, the true “boys of summer” will descend upon our local parks and ball fields, filled with anticipation over the coming Little League season. This year will be especially poignant for one community in central New Jersey. Freehold Township will welcome the return of Sean Neely, a 12-year-old catcher, who averted tragedy last season thanks to the actions of his volunteer coaches and the foresight of Freehold Township Little League’s Board of Directors. It’s a case study in cool competence, and visionary leadership, that other youth sport organizations should emulate in order to maximize the likelihood that all of our children will have a safe and enjoyable season. For the past 25 years, I have worked with FTLL and hundreds of yout ...

I have been asked to sing one of my most favorite songs in the whole wide world, our National Anthem, at the Opening Ceremonies of Danbury's Little League celebration on March 23! I love this song so much I used to sing it very softly to my children at bed time. (who does that?) I love it so much that I have always wanted to record it with a cinematic arrangement where it sounds like you are on the ship with Francis Scott Key held captive by the British as they attacked Fort McHenry. He was there negotiating the release of the American prisoners being held on the ship when all *** broke loose. For 25 hours the British bombarded the fort when on the 14th day of Sept in 1812 the bombing started to subside and the smoke cleared, Francis peered through the porthole just as the first rays from the sun where appearing over the Chesapeake Bay to see if Old Glory was still standing. I can even here running footsteps on the deck above, and shouting I can't quite understand as a solo violin pierces the darkne ...
I would like to nominate my daughter-in-law Tina Ballard for a Medal. I tried to enter her into a contest for the True character for a Trip to Australia,needless to say it would not take my submission.So then I decided I would just Give her a Medal of HONOUR with a Shower of Praise. I have known Tina since she was a child playing Little League . They do not come any better. I always tell her and others Naomi has nothing on me -She is my Ruth.

I just watched a video of Josh Elliott and Sam Champion (of "ABC's Good Morning America") visiting Josh's hometown, Westchester, CA. It showed the house he grew up in, and it's also the house where his mother (my friend, Toni) had a baby shower for me. Then they went to the Little League field in Playa Del Rey where he and my son played (with and against each other). He named a pitcher from my son's team who was so familiar to me (Josh recalled hitting a home run off of him. Sure glad it wasn't Ryan that he hit the HR off of!)... going back 35 years ago to a time long ago and far away was really fun!

The Bad News Bears ('76 Ritchie) [*** out of 4] Would make a *** of a double feature with ROCKY. Whereas ROCKY found its hero finding a kind of victory in defeat because he proved he was better than anyone's expectations, Ritchie's film is about finding integrity in losing for the right reasons. As the father of a grade-school-aged child, I've seen how Little League baseball can encourage a spirit of competition that's grossly out of proportion to the actual importance of the games. As such, it's refreshing to see a movie that celebrates playing baseball for fun and building team spirit, even if at the end of the day that's not enough to win a big championship trophy. That's not to say that Coach Buttermaker (Walter Matthau, a national treasure as always) embraces the idea of losing- after all, he goes out and recruits a handful of ringers in an effort to make the Bears competitive. But unlike the ultra-competitive coaching staff of the Yankees (because of course it's the Yankees), Buttermaker discovers . ...
Hey everyone! I'm in Little League this year! I'm really excited. But I have to sell 10 raffle tickets. They are $5 each. The drawing will be held on our Opening Day (April 13).

Little League Facts & Figures 1. The distance between the pitching mound and home plate is 46 feet. The distance between bases is 60 feet. This is 14 and 30 feet, respectively, shorter than a Major League Baseball diamond. 2. A regulation Little League game is six innings long. Of course, extra innings are possible to break ties. If one team gets ten runs ahead of the other after four innings, a "mercy rule" is invoked, and play ends. 3. A base runner is not allowed to leave the base before the pitched ball crosses home plate. 4. Little League umpires are officially unpaid, although they must go through extensive training. 5. Playing in Little League does not necessarily lead to a career in pro ball. Less than 1% of all Major Leaguers ever played Little League. Ex-Little League pros include Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver, Carl Yastrzemski, Mark McGwire and George Brett. 6. Danny DeVito was not small for his age when he played Little League. Other famous Little Leaguers include Tom Selleck, Bruce Springsteen, Kevi ...

Coaching a Little League team in Belleview, Florida. The team iis in the Major division and the players are 11 & 12. We are the Belleview Giants. Coached a team last year and had a good time so I decided to do it again. The players are great! Today was Opening Day and we paraded on to the field and the kids looked sharp and proud. Brought back memories from when I played Little League in Levittown and paraded from Samuel Everitt Elementary School to Snowball Gate field and then years later from Carl Sandburg JH to Twin Oaks field. What a great day I had today remembering my youth and watching these young players have a good time.

There's no Little League-like rule in high school basketball requiring every player on a team to make an appearance, so would someone explain why Coach Ed Azzam of 11-time City Section champion Westchester keeps using as many as 13 players in the first half of playoff games?
so interesting way to start of my morning. I thought I was doing some money for a little league baseball event but in all actuality, I'm going to be doing the color guard of that for a new ship opening for the Marine Corps or the Navy. This whole time I thought I was going to be doing a color guard ceremony for Little League .

Ron Demorest has passed. Ron worked in the Machine Repair department - - - Roland Ellis Demorest, age 87 of Greenville, died Tuesday evening, February 26, 2013 at Spectrum Health United Memorial United Campus. He was born November 17, 1925 in Entrican, the son of Ezra and Grace (Lown) Demorest. He was a proud veteran of the United States Army, and liked to share his Army experiences. He also liked to share his experiences as a young cowboy in West Texas. He was a proud member of the UAW, retiring in 1987 after many years of employment with General Motors. He was a longtime Little League baseball coach in Greenville, and an avid University of Michigan football fan. More than anything, he was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, despite his Archie Bunker tendencies. Roland will deeply missed by his loving wife of 58 years, Audrey; children, Barbara (Robert) Woodard of Gowen, Susan (Wes) James of Texas, Sharon (Scott Betts) Demorest of North Carolina, Roland (Pamela) Demorest of Greenville, and ...
Davis, who passed away in 2004, had a state-wide boys' basketball poll that everybody in the Garden State respected because they knew that he had witnessed every significant team play. (Davis knew field hockey and Little League baseball, too).
Thanks to all for the lovely comments about the GMA piece today where I took Sam back to my LA home. It was a joy to do, especially seeing Sam eat his first Double-Double and sharing the story of my grandfather's witnessing my first Little League home run. But best of all, to share that day with my dear friend Samuel J Champion, and today, a couch with Robin and Bianna, made it all feel like...home.

I want to talk today about some things they don't teach in government school and that the lying progressive politicians won’t tell you. The right to bear arms is a natural right of the individual. It wasn't and isn't granted by the government or the Constitution or some slimy politician any more than your right to breathe comes from the government. If you have the right to life, then you must have the means to defend that life against those who would stop you from breathing or who would turn you into a slave or a laboratory rat, which, judging from current trends, appears to be about where we are headed in this country. We live under the most powerful government that ever existed and it's getting bigger and stronger every week as new laws are passed taking over more and more aspects of life that used to be free. There is no literally no aspect of life, no matter how trivial or formerly private that progressive politicians do not have designs on: Little League football, the size of soft drinks, or what y ...
Getting ready for my first real life baseball draft. (Little League) I'm hoping to make a trade for player to be named later.
Had a great long weekend! Surprise visit from my youngest son, Jesse! Spent weekend with Jesse, my son, David and grandson, Rylan. Watched the Bruins live clobber the Tampa Lightning Bolts, visited Tarpon Spring sponge docks, walked the beach, got to see my grandson play a double header in Little League baseball and celebrated a birthday dinner! Now, I need to rest up for about a month!
a group with Ernie Harwell tried hard to save Tiger Stadium & turn it into a museum/Little League park but sadly it didn't work
I love Motocross. It’s just that simple. I like football, baseball, NASCAR (and most other forms of motorsport) and rodeo. I really enjoy most Olympic sports, but all pale in comparison to my passion for, and love of Motocross and its cousins, Supercross and Arenacross. I played Little League baseball and rode in a couple of rodeos but never really got into either of them. I liked football but was too small to play it seriously (I haven’t always been 6’1” and 210 lbs.) and nothing else really interested me, so the fact that I actually raced bikes is certainly responsible for it being elevated to “favorite sport” status in my life. Some of my buddies had dirtbikes as far back as Jr. High. I had a Honda Mini-Trail 70, It was a three speed, but it was still more an old school mini-bike than a motorcycle. One of my friends, Ronnie Reeves, had a customized Honda 100 and one day a bunch of us were out riding in a field in Tehachapi. Three of the guys had dirtbikes and Ronnie let me ride his Honda. I ...
We're doing well & are blessed! Special Olympics baseball for Jacob & Little League for Owen. Busy! Be Well!
Boys and girls who attended the annual Get Together at Houlihans Friday night, it was great seeing everyone. Yesterday I was thinking of all the times playing ball in Memorial, Filmore, Miller, The Bus Station, The girls Little League and Hudson county Park etc. We were like 5, 6, 7, 8 yrs old and here we are again a testament to our era of growing up and playing together on the streets of WNY 40yrs later and it is like yesterday when we see each other. Our defenses drop and we are young once again, uncontaminated by life's experiences enjoying one another again and forever.

Offering the latest composite and aluminum baseball bats approved for BBCOR, Little League and USSSA.
Standing on a cold and windy little league pitcher's mound at Frogtown, today, I looked around me, and I was the only female there. (My 8-year-old daughter, Lizzy, was hiding out in the warm car, playing games on my phone...) I was standing just one step out of a semi-circle of 10-15 men, surrounding a well-spoken man, who was talking about how to coach little leaguers. My eleven-year-old son, Michael, stood in front of me, tossing a baseball in the air, sporting last year's Mountain Ranch Orioles cap. On his right, his former machine-pitch coach (and this year's Majors coach), Mike Sabelberg. On his left, last year's Minors coach, Robert Jarrell. For just a moment, I imagined my dad (long-dead, these past 18 years), standing beside me and looking at me, astounded. I felt him ask, "You were once my only little girl, and now, here you are, President of your son's Little League, looking over the future." Gosh, I wished he was really there with me, but then...I guess he kinda was... Thanks to all thos ...

Although he wasn't a member of our class, just because...many of his listened to his music. His Sister Sue died the next day. Ronald Edward "Rooster" Ruley, 60, of Lexington, a gifted bluegrass musician who played the banjo with drive, precision and power, died Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013. He performed in numerous bluegrass bands and especially loved playing at Hootieville and the Maury River Fiddlers Convention. His first CD was called "Junkyard Jam Session." A second CD, "Rooster's Ruckus," will be released in the spring. "He was the best at being just who he was: a one-of-akind, larger-than-life individual who was fun to be around because one never knew what would happen next," said W. C. "Burr" Datz, a friend, fellow musician and Catholic campus minister who led last Sunday's funeral service. He was also a master mechanic, gunsmith, outdoor sportsman and jack-of-alltrades. In his younger years he raised beagles and coached Little League baseball. He was born Oct. 2, 1952, in Lexington, the son of Nadine ...
There has been some confusion in regards to age groups for each division since National Little League rules over lap ages. The board has discussed streamlining what ages go in each division. While any player eligible by age for a certain division may try out for the higher division (in which they qualify) the following will be the ages that the M-F Little League will be looking for in each division: Tee Ball: ages 4-6 Machine Pitch: ages 6-8 with one year of t-ball Minors Baseball: 9-10 Majors Baseball: 11-12 Juniors Baseball: 13 Minors Softball: 9-10 Majors Softball: 11-12 Juniors Softball: 13-14 Seniors Softball 15-16 If a player has played in a higher division the prior season, they will not be pulled down (LL Rules). Please keep in mind that a player who tries out for the higher division I which they qualify will have to meet a minimum safety score at try-ours in order to be eligible for that team in the draft. We know this topic can be confusing, please ask any questions you may have on here, or dir ...
Chopper: How did you start playing? Petey Hop Hopkinson (Hop): I started playing music because my family moved up to Duchess County from Westchester County when I was about 11 or 12. There was no Pop Warner or Little League up there and that was all I was into. My older brothers all got guitars when they were like 15 and 17 and they didn’t stick with it. So I picked them up because there was really nothing else to do around the house and I just got hooked! I got a good teacher when I was young and then I really got into it. Chopper: Who was your first and greatest personal influence on music? Hop: We were big Southern Rockers, so I’d have to say Lynyrd Skynyrd, and that kind of thing. Actually, one of the guys who you know from your Sunday Nite Jam Session, Ronnie Pauls, was one of the local guys who took me under his wing. When I was about 13 or 14 I bought my first Strat off of him; which I still have. He was a really good mentor for me to have when I was young. Chopper: Describe your music career? ...

There’s a major part of the Mendocino Coast that is impossible to know if: • You’ve never been involved with Little League; • You’ve never watched the Fort Bragg High School boys play a basketball game against Lower Lake or a football game against Willits; • You don’t have any friends who grew up here; • You’ve never fished on the ocean with a commercial fisherman; • You’ve never witnessed a logging operation; and • You’ve never shopped at The Purity.
Spring MUST be around the corner if it is time for Little League in Dutchess County
Want to get REALLY confused? Try reading Little League's bat rules for the 46/60 and 50/70 field sizes. Just go back to wood already. Of course the reason that won't happen? The bat companies make too much money selling non-wood bats.

Spring will be here before we now it. For years while my son was in school, the two of us would take a three to four day "Spring Break" road trip to fish with my Day. We took trips to Lake Livingston in Texas, Toledo Bend in Louisiana and if we only had a couple of days, we'd fish Kentucky Lake. Our last trip was to Toledo Bend, a twelve hour drive from Nashville. On the way back, we talked about how much my Dad enjoyed our trips. During the ride back, the topic of Golf and Baseball came up. Golf played a huge part of my life for years, the same with my Son and Baseball. On the ride home, we spent a couple of hours estimating how much the both of us had played the two games. For my Son, the best we could figure, from T-Ball, Little League, summer leagues, school teams, travel teams, fall leagues and tournaments, my Son had played in 400 to 500 baseball games. As for golf, I played three to four rounds a week for nearly 20 years and I practiced three times as much as I played. My best estimate was that I h ...

START OF THE 2013 CHALLENGE SEASON CoulOak Little League will again be sponsoring a Challenge Team program for kids in our league during the 2013 season. The Challenge Program is an opportunity for kids interested in playing additional baseball at a higher skill level to participate in several weekend tournaments on a "not to interfere" basis with our Little League recreational program. This program formally begins with tryouts in February and these teams will participate in several tournaments throughout the spring, summer and possibly fall seasons, dependent upon interest of the players/parents. This program, along with the Winter Workouts program we have held the last three years, has been a key factor in the development of our players (and coaches) and the success of our teams in post season play each year. Below is a list of the Head Coaches and the tryout information: Age 6 Coach Neal Graham Sun 2/24 @ 1:30 Oakdale Age 7 Coach Rudy Kenley Tue 2/19 @ 6:30 Oakdale Age 8 Coach Kevin Hudson Sun 2/24 @ 1 ...
Wish I had Little League. I play Cal Ripken... well now babe ruth
How am I feeling? Dang. I am starting to finally get used to my heavy heart. Being the woman that cries in public. All it took today: I am out, enjoying my coffee, reading the paper and look over at the table by the window...a young boy sitting with his grandma and grandpa. And boom. I am sad. Tears pouring out of my face. What a blubbering *** I feel like sometimes. Just the random thought that my son is never going to be able to be with my dad, his awesome grandpa, ever again, breaks my heart into hundreds of pieces. I HAVE TO STOP BEING SAD. I HAVE SO MANY BLESSINGS. AND SO MANY OTHERS SUFFER WAY MORE LOSS AND PAIN. I am mentally taking myself to my happy place...playing catch with my son...sitting on the bleachers at his Little League game. Ahhh. Okay. I gave-up being negative for Lent. Gotta keep reminding myself. THANK FOR LETTING ME VENT. I should go to my friend's pottery studio and get wet&dirty at the wheel. Make something at least. Or go play the piano? Or a few rounds of disc golf? Go to the . ...
A special thank you to the Joshua Wilson Trust Foundation for donating to our Challenger Division. I would like to share a few words from his family.Sometimes its the little things that mean the most. Challenger Little League provided my son so many opportunities through baseball for 20 years. We started with Concord American then on to Clayton Valley Little League and then on to ECLL to rebuild Challenger baseball in East County. As a thank you to what Little League has provided my son Joshua and the Joshua Wilson Trust Foundation will be donating speciafically to ECLL Challenger Baseball. It is Joshua's hope that many more kids with disabilities get the opportunity to enjoy baseball like he did for 20 years. We miss our ECLL family but wish you all the best.
