On November 7th at the District 28 Little League Banquet, GEYA was extremely proud to honor the following well deserving members.
Tony Alberton, Volunteer of the Year - Tony has been an active member with GEYA for seven years serving as both coach and Board Member. He has been the Safety Officer for the last 4 years and he does such an excellent job that all attempts to resign have been immediately dismissed.
Kerry McShane-Kay, Mom of the Year - Kerry is a self-described baseball mom that you can always find at Hickory Park. She does an amazing job managing the snack stand which is an important part of the GEYA experience at Hickory Park.
Aiden McGonagle, Sportsman of the Year - Aiden embodies all of the qualities that Little League baseball strives to build in it's players. He is a pleasure to coach and has made himself into quite a player. A great teammate who leads by example on and off the field this is one kid who loves baseball!. Just like the pledge says ... win or lose he always does his best!
To Every Season an End ....
With the conclusion of Fall Ball on Halloween Weekend the 2014 baseball season came to an official close. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who made the 2014 season possible from the Spring season to the Finnegan Tournament through Fall Ball. It takes a village to run a Little League and without the dedicated board members, coaches, field maintenance crew and snack stand workers GEYA Baseball would not be possible.
The Hickory Park and Springton Manor fields have been prepared for the long winters night that awaits. Your GEYA Board will take the afternoon off and then get back to work planning for the 2015 season. Please feel free to attend any of the upcoming Open Board Meetings. Many of the decisions that will shape the 2015 season will be made in the next 3 months so if you want to get involved or just see how things run behind the scenes then come out to Eagle Tavern on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
.... And Then a New Beginning
Registration for the Spring 2015 season opens on December 1, 2014!
