Post-Season Player Award Ballots and League Officer Voting Ballots will be distributed next Sunday, September 18th. Please start doing your research now so you know who you want to vote for. If you can’t think of anyone, vote for yourself. (It’s legal)
The date for the annual HDL Banquet is unconfirmed at this time but you can expect it will be in November, either: 11th, 12th, 18th or 19th.
To my HDL friends and family:
I have been extremely busy and talking individually to everyone who knows me is impossible so posting this announcement is the only alternative. I want to give you the official word that I am announcing that I will be retiring from HDL at end of my current term as HDL President. I have decided that as I complete almost four decades as a player and officer with HDL, it is time to prepare for my next chapter. Besides, my health is an issue that was a major influence in this decision.
I am leaving HDL with a great deal of satisfaction and pride in the League that it has become and my role in building one of the best adult men baseball leagues in this area of the country.
I want to continue to help the HDL maintain a reliable place to play baseball in Tobey park. Since I am committed to leaving enough room in my schedule for umpiring, Park Services Field Director and most importantly, my wife Sandy, my son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Gena, and my two grandchildren, Seth and Gage.
To all of you, I would like to express my thanks for your love, your care and your support over these last thirty eight years. At moments like this, you have the opportunity to step back and reflect on all the people on whom you have depended, on whose counsel you have relied, and to whom you have survived during tough times. To me, life is all about these relationships, and I consider myself a very fortunate human being to have had so many wonderful ones through the years. I look forward to continue seeing you and talking “baseball”. My stepping down will decrease the volume of my posts on the Blog so I am soliciting some HDL members to come forward and consider becoming a contributor or author of articles on the Blog. It is easy and I am willing to show you how to post an article or make changes to current pages.
Don’t forget to Vote!
