What a season

Dear Editor:

As the summer baseball and softball season comes to a close, Basalt Recreation Department would like to extend a big thank you to the people who make the season so much fun for the boys and girls of the Roaring Fork Valley. We are so grateful to be able to work with these people who dedicate their summer to teaching sportsmanship, teamwork, and camaraderie mixed in with baseball and softball fundamentals.

Many thanks to David Briscoe, Matt Flink, Kris Sinko, Kathy Johnson, Connie Brown, Alexa Aitken, Abby King, and Katie King for their help with the fastpitch softball teams. Thanks to Brad Elliott, Rob Hubbell, Doug Britt, Eric Vozick, Jon Leibell, Mary Holley, Brian Hipona, Darrel Zwieg, Kevin Bruce, Gregg Adams, Ron Lloyd, Todd Gressett, Jon Roberts, and Nick Soho for their help with the baseball teams. Thank you to all the parents who stepped up to help out with games and refreshments as well as getting their children to the practices and games. Thank you to all the players who were out there demonstrating awesome sportsmanship skills. Thank you to all the umpires and field workers who help make the season a fun time for everyone. We appreciate everyone’s hard work that contributed to another successful summer recreation baseball and softball league.
