Opening Night at Fred George Park
To be Held on April 30thUpdated Thursday August 30, 2018 by TLBR.
IMPORTANT OPENING DAY UPDATE
The high school district schedule and our need to get the season started is getting more and more complicated. The TLBR board is committed to giving value to all players while respecting the needs of the high schools. More so than in modern recollection there are many TLBR players who are on high school varsity rosters. This and the fact that FHSAA has moved up the playoff schedule means that players and fields may not be available.
Not only is Opening Day the only chance that we have to gather everyone together is opening day, postponement is not possible due to catering .
In order to maximize attendance, we are moving the start time on Monday to 6:30.
The revised schedule is to begin serving at 6:30 with the formal ceremony to begin promptly at 7:30 with the game starting at 8:00.
The remainder of the games next week will be based on field availability. Notifications will be sent by email and text messages and we ask your patience as we work through this difficult week.
The 64th season of Tallahassee-Leon Babe Ruth baseball commences on Monday night (4/30/18) with our opening night at Fred George Park.
The event will start at 6:00 pm with team and individual pictures. Each player and team will be photographed so we ask that you be prompt, and early if possible. With every player expected to attend, parking will be a challenge.
Be sure that your player is in full uniform.
The team manager and sponsors are eligible to receive a complimentary plaque that includes a team photo. So, it is important for all players to attend, and please consider purchasing a photograph to help get to the minimum requirement to receive the coach and sponsor plaques. A printable order form is attached.
There will be a barbecue dinner served during the event. More information will be forthcoming on how to purchase tickets. At 6:40 pm, the opening ceremonies will begin and last until 7:00, when the league's first game will be played between the Eagles and Trojans. The opening ceremonies will include team introductions and a guest speaker.
Jamie Harley is spearheading this event and needs your help with set up, serving, concession, decorating and cleanup. She can reached at 850.766.7905.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday night, April 30, and to another great season of Babe Ruth baseball.
