Lakewood Baseball Club General Assembly Meeting

This Sunday, Lakewood Baseball Club will be holding our annual General Assembly Meeting.  What is a General Assembly Meeting?  Besides meeting our By-Law requirement, it marks the first time that we have a chance to come together to kick off 2018.

We always have some business to take care of…

We have positions to fill.  We no longer can sustain growth if every Board member is wearing 2-3 hats.  It is time to step up to the plate. 

Director of Equipment/Currently held by Rodney Mayor…  wishes to relinquish

Director of Fundraising/ Vacant    

Director of Volunteers/ Vacant

Director of Sponsorships/ Vacant    

Director of Facilities/ Vacant

Shetland Division Coordinator/ Vacant   

Pinto Division Coordinator/ Vacant

Bronco Division Coordinator/ Vacant   

Pony Division Coordinator/ Vacant   

Colt Division Coordinator/ Vacant

Executive Positions are voted by and from the Board of Directors.  The By-laws are written to define the roles of the “Board”.  Board Positions are elected for 2 years.

Those Board positions then elect the “Executive Board”, which serves for one year.

Review of By-Laws- 

Treasurer:  There is considerable time and business requirements for the position of Treasurer.  The process of changing bank account information alone could be burdensome for LBC should this position turn over annually. 

 

Proposed By-Law Changes-

1)            The position of Treasurer be a contractual appointment, offered by the Board, no less than two years.  This position WOULD NOT have to be filled by a Board member.  The position would be a member of the Executive Board. 

2)            Remove the redundancy of “player development” under Jr. Vice-President due to creating the “director of player/coach development”.

3)            Add in job description for Director of player/coach development

4)            Remove reference to scheduling umpires from Commissioner of Baseball

a.            Also remove old language of co president

5)            Add Umpires to Director of Scheduling

 

Things to talk about:

Creation of Conferences within age divisions

Age Date Change

2018 Calendar

All-Stars

 

And so much more…

Eligibility for Divisions has been based on the players age as of April 30 of each year.  For 2018, PONY Baseball has moved the age date to that of August 31.  PONY has joined all the other Youth Baseball Organizations in utilizing the same age cut off date.

You can base your players eligibility for a Division by simply calculating what your child's age will be on August 31, 2018.


Are you "Bat" Crazy?

Bats…  Why you should not go out and purchase a bat!

In conjunction with USA Baseball and its other participating national member organizations, PONY Baseball has adopted the new USA Baseball bat standard (USABat). Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other minus factor bats (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be YBBCOR certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play. Minus factor bats -5, -7, -9, etc. used in 2017 will be illegal to use in 2018. 

The new YBBCOR certified bats bearing the USABat licensing mark are expected to be offered in retail stores in September.  For more info:
