The following information is posted on Delta's website:
Delta will be offering a Fall Ball program this year for players aged 8-11 and we wanted to give you the opportunity to plan for it right away. Registration will take place at Sports Authority from 9-11 AM on two upcoming Saturdays: August 24th and September 7th. The Fall Ball season will start on Saturday, September 14th and will run for 7 weeks at the Delta Little League fields from 9-11 AM each day. The focus this year will be on fundamentals and technique. Most of our effort will go into making the kids better ball players, but we will have a couple of scrimmage-type games on two of the Saturdays.
Cost will be $60.00, which will include a t-shirt and hat for each player.
Meet us at Sports Authority on august 24th to get started. We look forward to seeing you there!
Ten Games To Be Broadcast on ESPN Stations
District 8 Umpires Headed To Western Region Tournament
Jonah Salerno has been umpiring Little League games since he was 13 years old, where he started out at Pacific Little League. Jonah worked his way through the ranks and became a District 8 staff umpire a few years back. In June of 2010, Jonah was selected to be an instructor for the Western Region Junior Umpire School. In August of 2010, Jonah also worked the Senior Division Western Region Tournament in Ontario, California. Jonah was selected to work the final plate for the Championship game and became the youngest umpire to ever work the final plate for a Western Region Tournament. Outside of Little League, Jonah umpires Junior College ball in Northern California. In January, Jonah received his "golden ticket" when he was selected to work the prestigious Western/NW Region Tournaments in San Bernardino. ESPN stations will be broadcasting 10 games from San Bernardino this year.
Update: Jonah worked as the plate umpire in the NW Championship Game on ESPN. Congrats to Jonah.
Jeff Frese started his Little League umpiring career with Hoover Tyler Little League in the early 1990's, where he also served in several different board of director positions, including President and Umpire-in-Chief. Our current District Umpire-in-Chief, Jeff worked the Western/NW Region Tournament in San Bernardino in 2006. In 2008, Jeff joined the Western Region Tournament umpire staff and became one of two WR Tournament Supervisors/Evaluators in 2009. Jeff has served on the Western Region Instructor staff since November 2006, when he became an instructor for the Regional Umpire-in-Chief clinic. Frese has taught at the Western Region week-long umpire school since 2008 and will take over as the lead instructor of the Western Region UIC - Train the Trainer clinic in November. Jeff's primary purpose at the tournament is to evaluate each umpire after each game, help select the umpires and their respective positions for the ESPN games and evaluate the umpires' performance to determine if they are qualified to work the LL World Series down the road.
