Dear BBA family,

Another Berea Baseball Association season has come to end ~ and we want to take this final opportunity to thank those who made the season possible.

First, our thanks to all of the families who participated in this 42nd season of the BBA. There were 430 boys & girls that played t-ball, baseball and softball in-house in the BBA this summer (another 100+ played in the BBA travel program).

Second, we thank all of the head coaches and assistant coaches for our 34 in-house teams ~ some of whom coached 2 or 3 teams. Their time & efforts help make the BBA a success.

We also thank the 30 sponsors for their generous financial support of the BBA. They have many other requests to support local programs ~ and they choose to support the BBA and your children.

Finally, we thank our 16 board members who meet and work year round for the benefit of this program.

As we conclude this season, you should have received an e-mail requesting you to help us and participate in a short 9 question survey about the season and our events, and evaluate our coaches and year-end tournament. The survey is anonymous; however you also have the opportunity to enter and win tickets to the 2017 BBA Reverse raffle next spring.

Of particular interest to us is if and how to recognize players at the end of the season. As an in-house community program, our emphasis has been on learning to play a team sport, developing baseball/softball skills and having fun. We're aware of the recent trend of returning "participation" trophies ~ and our board discussed this at length. This year we chose to continue the tradition of medals for the younger leagues, participation trophies for the older leagues, and pizza for all of the teams after their final game.

We'd like your opinion for next year ~ should we recognize and award participating, winning, both or neither. 

Thank you again ~ and we hope to see you again next summer!

===========================================================  

 The BBA is celebrating its 41st year of youth baseball, softball and t-ball in the City of Berea.

The one constant through all the years, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again.
