As we close another successful season of POPS Softball - I want to congratulate all the Championship teams, in both the regualr and fall seasons. No easy task and a job well done. Special thanks to all the Directors who showed up to all the games and kept decorum and to the managers who work hard from formuating the teams to get to thru the playoffs and championships.
"Families in Need". Thanks to your donations and monies left over this year, we have funds to distribute to families during the holiday season.
POPS Softball is looking to provide Cash or Gift Cards to Families before the Holidays.
* If anyone knows of any families who came upon hard times and could use help for the holidays, families who are having difficulty financially. Especially family or friends of players from POPS Softball.… contact me immediately.
Onto the 2023 season. POPS Softball will be hoping to secure addtional fields to allow the 6 NEW teams already on the waiting list, an opportunity to join us. If anyone has any connections to field space contact me. We have already secured one new field and expect 1-2 additional to accomodate new players. Looking forward to seeing you all next year.
For "New Players" or "New TEAMS"looking to join us for 2023 (to play next year) are welcome to contact me - Keith Pastuch at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As the directors and I watched the playoffs, we observed the great camraderie in POPS. Friendships made over the years and great competition. Umpires and new players raving about our league, a waiting list of 6 new teams, with over 4 dozen new players already for 2023, with continued requests to join, we will reach over 80 before the season starts.
In case you were not aware, POPS has gotten permission to add a "Port A Potty" at Oceanside HS.. It is placed behind the 1st base dugout, attached to the fence. Every manager has the combination of the lock and this will stay until after Fall Ball is completed. Please make sure to LOCK it when done.
POPS Softball is a league that allocates any additional monies raised or left over to help others. We do so with "scholarships" to kids going to college and to helping "families in need" come the holidays.
