I hope all is well and that everyone is excited for Sunday’s game. I encourage you to take the time to read a few pieces of key information that you should relay to the parents of your respective leagues.
**Please note this will be our largest parade of the year. In order for the kids to have the most enjoyable experience- communication to parents is key. Please relay the content of this email to the rest of the group**

GA Parking is $10 in advance, $15 at the gate. Bus parking is $35 in advance, $50 at the gate. You can also park in Lots 13 and 14* for $8 in advance $15 at the gate. *there is an uphill walk from these lots, but it is an easy entrance and exit before and after games.

Following the game, kids 14 and under can meet in centerfield for Kids Run the Bases- this event is open to everyone. Siblings and friends of that age can participate as well!
We’d like to remind you to have your kids wear their team t-shirt and hat (to help shield the sun), wear sunscreen, and have fun!
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
St. Louis Cardinals Manager, Mike Matheny, was asked to coach his son’s baseball team. Believing the biggest problem in youth sports is overbearing parents, he decided to write a letter to them, addressing his concerns and expressing conditions he required from his team’s moms and dads. The long, detailed letter was initially meant for only those with children on his team, but it eventually became the Matheny Manifesto, an impactful, direct, and honest message parents everywhere can learn from. With many baseball and softball seasons just beginning, we encourage you to watch the Matheny Manifesto Video which appeared on ESPN during the 2013 Little League Baseball® World Series. The video features Little League’s president and CEO, Stephen D. Keener, and provides important ways you can best support your Little Leaguer®.
