It's that time of year again, Fall Ball is coming to a close and it will be time to shut down the fields for the winter months. It's a good opportunity to volunteer and help out the League by giving a small amount of time and effort that goes a long way. Manager's we will be holding equipment returns that morning, as well. We will begin at 9:00 am on Saturday, November 5th and will appreciate a nice turn out. Here's what needs to be done and with enough volunteers we can be done in a couple of short hours:
All equipment in storage boxes needs to be picked up and returned to equipment room in community center: Colonial, Quidneck, ASFMS, etc. If someone has a pick up truck that would be ideal. If someone offers to pick up the gear at the other fields before going to Paine, please let me know
Equipment sheds need to be cleaned
Batting cage nets taken down and stored in community center
Press Boxes cleaned i've already started that process
Flags taken down and stored
Center field tarps need to be removed and stored
Sponsor signs taken down and stored
Lastly, we have two more Coventry teams still playing in their respective tournaments if you would like to come out and support Coventry baseball this weekend. Team Lapham's 8/9B team will have a game tomorrow at Paine1 at 4:00pm weather permitting. Rain Day Sunday. Team Pelosi's 6/7's are playing in a weekend tournament hosted by the Coventry Little League on both Paine fields Saturday and Sunday starting at 10:00am.
Congratulations to Team Howman's 8/9 year old Fall Ball team who last night beat a tough Cranston West team to win the 2016 8/9 Fall Ball Pool A District Championship. The team played great throughout going undefeated in the regular season, as well as, sweeping through the winner's bracket during the tournament. Thank you to all who came out to support.
We will be holding our General Membership Meeting on Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 at the Anthony PNA, 15 Meeting Street, Coventry. Among other business, we will be selecting our Committee Leads and filling our committees for the following:
Constitution and Bylaws Committee

Awards and Events Committee
This is a great way to volunteer and give back to the League. You do not have to be on the Board of Directors to be a committee lead or be on a committee. All are encouraged to attend.
