Congratulations to those teams making it to the championship games. The POPS championships will be played starting Monday, August 15th for the 40+ league, Wednesday, August 17th for the 60+ league, and Thursday, August 18th for the 50+ league. Weather permiting. Once again every team must be prepared to makeup a game that week, or next, if necessary. Good Luck and enjoy the moment.
As we enter week three of the playoffs, I've observed the great camraderie in POPS. Friendships made over the years and great competition. Umpires and new players raving about our league, Fall Ball full in the quickest period ever, a waiting list of 3 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. All of which point to a great job by so many, from managers, to directors.
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
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 Fall Ball is full. We will be starting September 6th and will run thru the end of October. POPS was inundated with requests to play by POPS Teams, Individual players and from teams and players outside of POPS. If you are a POPS individual looking to play, contact me ASAP. We are already officially closed out!!!
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.
