The 2014 OBALL Fundraiser was held on Friday, July 18th from 7-10pm at the IRON CITY CAFE at 4002 Jennings Road.
To all who attended the fundraiser and supported OBALL – - – THANK YOU VERY MUCH! We sold 180 tickets and had over 40 baskets to raffle off. There were side boards and 50/50. We also raffled off a Kindle Fire HD! Profit for this fun evening has been totalled at $3560.00!!!! This money will go towards everything needed to keep OBALL running smoothly for your children!
Christina Minite’s picture of the TBall Red Sox All Stars won the photo contest with 38 likes! She will receive a $25.00 gift card to AMC Movies.
Thanks to Becky Derwis for such a great idea! Keep watching the website for all the pictures from All Star Day.
FYI – we collected $67.00 and many, many pounds of non-perishable food for St. Michael the Archangel Parish Food Pantry. Thank you to all who brought more food than requested! This donation will go to help those in need in our community.
NEW INFORMATION: UPDATED UMPIRE SCHEDULES ARE ATTACHED BELOW. ALL COACHES SHOULD CHECK TO SEE IF THEY CAN HELP UMPIRE AT LEAST 3 GAMES DURING THE SEASON. PLEASE CHECK YOUR OWN TEAM’S SCHEDULE AGAINST THIS SCHEDULE AND MAKE SURE TO SIGN UP!
COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES – - PARTICULARLY LITTLE F AND BIG F – - If you have not signed up to umpire your required 3 games in TBall and Pee Wee, please do so immediately!!! Go to the Schedules page and pull up your schedule and the tball or pee wee schedule and compare/choose some games to umpire! This has to be done!
For OBALL to continue to thrive, it is very important that we have our coaches come back to the Tball and Pee Wee divisions and umpire the games. It is important because #1. you know the rules better than pulling parents from the side lines! #2. OBALL cannot afford to pay umpires for pee wee and tball games!
COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES – If you want to continue to protect 6 kids, then you MUST, MUST, MUST do your required games.
We are to a point where we may have to begin assigning teams who aren’t playing to Pee Wee and Tball games…. Then it will be your team’s responsibility to fill the umpire slot for that game.
FYI, Big F Coaches, if you have some really responsible Big F players, they are more than welcome to help you or one of your assistants umpire. They can read the rules and get up to date on the newer rules implemented. The players can also get VOLUNTEER HOURS for high school for umpiring.
Sign up by sending an email to OBALLHELP@gmail.com or by emailing or texting Nick Vah (Tball) or Gary Smith (Pee Wee) ASAP!!
Dear Family and Friends,
My name is Greg Margevicius.
My grandmother is in Mt. Alverna nursing home in Parma. I am a Boy Scout pursuing my Eagle Scout rank. For my Eagle Scout Project I am putting in 3 benches at Mt. Alverna, around the pond area. In order for me to put these benches in I have to put in 3 concrete pads. Mt. Alverna staff are very excited about how this addition will change the entire dynamic around this part of their complex. Currently there is no opportunity for residents or guests to sit around and enjoy the view of the beautiful pond.
The benches Mt. Alverna wants are quite expensive, being heavy duty for the outdoors, about $900 each. My entire project budget is $4000.
I was wondering if you or someone you know would be able to contribute to this project. Contributions are tax-deductible, and donors will be recognized in my Eagle Scout Program. Checks should be made payable to “Troop 221” and please put “Margevicius Eagle Project” on the memo line. Please mail all checks to 6035 Brookside Drive, Cleveland, Ohio 44144.
Please find attached a PDF providing more details about the project.
Thank you for your consideration,
Eagle Scout Candidate
COACHES – Please be sure to report your game scores to OBALLSCORES@gmail.com
Winning coaches need to report scores ASAP!!!! Tball and Pee Wee coaches should also report the names of the game’s umpires.
Everyone umpiring in TBall and Pee Wee should check the game scores to be sure your name was reported properly and so that you get credit – this includes parent umpires.
THE 2014 OBALL RAIN OUT PHONE NUMBER IS: 216-496-0770
This phone message will be updated approximately one hour before game time if it is completely clear that the games will not be played.
If there is a possibility of playing, then there will be a game time decision.
