The 2017 LSFBL Season is Just About to Begin!
This should be another exciting season for the LSFBL. We will have almost 170 teams with over 2000 kids playing ball in the LSFBL this year. I think that’s great! I have to thank the Community Representatives that make this League work. The collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork of these Reps make this League special.
We are so close to getting our season underway. Game schedules are being prepared, teams have begun practicing, game rules have been updated and a lot of work on this website is underway. Over the next few weeks more and more details will be added to this site.
Other important activities are on the horizon as well. Our Annual Managers’ Meetings are coming up. The Meeting for 10U through 14U Teams is scheduled for Sunday, May 7. The 10U Team Managers will meet from 9 – 10AM, the 11U and 12U Managers from 10 – 11AM, and the 13U and 14U Managers from 11AM to Noon. The Meeting will be held at the Winnetka Community House, located at 620 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka. The Meeting for the 8U and 9U Team Managers will be held at the same location on Sunday, May 21. 8U Managers will meet from 9 – 10AM and the 9U Managers will meet from 10 – 11AM. Each team should be represented at these meetings. The League will cover important rule changes and other administrative matters, and will also distribute game baseballs and scorebooks.
We are almost there. It should be an exciting season!
See you on the ball fields!
Ed Cohen, League President
