‘Round the horn with thanks

Dear Editor:

The crack of the bat and the cheer of the crowds are now gone from the baseball fields in Basalt as another baseball and softball season comes to a close. Basalt Recreation Department would like to extend a big thanks to the people who make the season so much fun for the boys and girls of the Roaring Fork Valley. These people dedicate their summer to teaching sportsmanship, teamwork and camaraderie mixed in with some baseball and softball fundamentals.

Many thanks to Brad Elliot, Brian Hipona, Brian Pettet, Bruce Matherly, Craig Fredricks, Curtis Schwab, Darrel Zwieg, David Briscoe, David Schoenberger, Jeff Davis, Kevin Bruce, Matt Haag, Mike Glen, Matt Flink, Tom Moore and Tony Thompson.

Thank you to all the parents who helped out with refreshments and made sure their child was at practices and games. Also, thank you to all the players who dedicated their summer to playing ball. And thank you to the umpires and field workers for taking the time to be at the games. We appreciate everyone’s hard work with the summer recreation baseball and softball league.

Dorothy Howard

Basalt Recreation Department
