Thanks for great youth baseball

Dear Editor:

The Snowmass Recreation Department held the 11-12 years’ recreation baseball double-elimination tournament last week, and it was a huge success. This was the first year that the Town of Snowmass Village ever played a baseball game on home turf, let alone fielded a team, and two teams were formed in the league. Thank you to everyone who had a part in making this season both memorable and extremely fun.

A big thank-you goes out to the two coaches, Roger Marolt and Doug Throm. Without your tireless efforts and sharing of knowledge, this year would not have been possible. The amount that these kids improved their skill level throughout the summer really could be measured by their smiles, and you two need to be commended. To all the valley recreation coaches, on behalf of the children, parents and recreation programmers, thank you for all that you have done; this league would not be possible without you.

Thank you to our sponsors for the season: Alpine Bank, Weitz Construction, Tasters Pizza, Mountain Dragon, Wienerdog Kids Toys and the Town of Snowmass Village. It is because of you that we all had so much fun. Thank you to Patrick Faurer for his tireless umpiring and for doing such a great job. For the huge party on the tournament championship day, thank you to Stacey Forester and Tasters Pizza for providing the mountain of pizza and soft drinks to celebrate the final day.

A huge thank-you to the Town of Snowmass Village parks’ crew for keeping the field lined and in tip-top shape for the whole season. Lastly, thank you to all the parents in Snowmass Village and across the valley for all the support and sportsmanship you provided throughout the summer. I know your kids really appreciate the efforts that you go to in supporting them.

I look forward to seeing you all next year and to expanding the youth baseball program in Snowmass Village and across the valley.
