A few picks from Saturday’s Zombie-Ball

Saturday was the end – the end of fall-ball that is.  To celebrate the last day of fall-ball the RGSA had an open invitation to all players and spectators to come “zombified”.

Of course, the Sluggers did not disappoint but we also had plenty of others dress for the occasion.  Here are just a few of those pics.  If you want to see the whole photo gallery from Saturday’s Zombie Ball just click on any one of the photos.

The Sluggers also played some softball and, with a little help from our new mascot Fred, the girls did a great job closing out the season.  Here are a few picks of Fred hanging around dugout.

Fred’s a great motivation for the girls and even though he tends to hover he still pays attention to the game.

Fred was such an inspiration that Sonny was finally able to hit that home-run she had been swinging for all season.  I’m sure the extremely spirited cheering from Coach Candice didn’t hurt either.

So, even though the Sluggers were kind of dead from the zombie plague they were able come to life with some great hitting and some fantastic fielding to end the season with a winning streak against two of the local tournament teams.

Good Job Sluggers!!!

Knocking Breast Cancer Out of the Park Tournament

Well, it’s over.  Our very first annual softball tournament to promote breast cancer awareness has come and gone but the fond memories and photos remain.

Here are a few shots of the many teams that participated in our tournament.  Just about everyone got into our theme and had some pink in their uniforms.  Even if they just had pink hair ribbons or socks.

 

 

 

Even our umpires got into the pink spirit.

 

We would like to thank everyone for their participation in this fantastic event.  It’s wonderful to have so many involved in the support of this cause.  We are definitely going to do this again so keep this weekend free and we’ll see you next year.

You can check-out all of the tournament photos in our Slugger cloud.  Just click on any of the images and you’ll be taken to our full gallery.

Fall Ball Has Started

Saturday afternoon the RGSA (Roswell Girls Softball Association) kicked-offed, hit-off our second annual fall ball season and it couldn’t have gone better.  After weeks of rain and mud the the sky seemed to realize “it’s time to play ball”.  It was sunny and clear, and our fall ball athletes had missed being on the field.


This season’s RGSA Fall Ball has age divisions from 7U up to  13U.  Even though the older girls can be seen playing some amazing ball some of the most entertaining games are the “bittys”.  Even if a few things need to be pointed out to them -


Those games are some of my favorite to watch.  Those girls try so hard and,

every now and then, something exciting happens.

We had a number of games on Saturday and it was very nice to get some movement back on the fields.




Of course the Sluggers played saturday and I think everyone was very excited to be back in green.  Even if we did add a little pink into the mix.

I know what you’re saying about us having the Sluggers wear something other than black and green.  But, with October being national breast cancer awareness month we thought it would be a nice change of pace.  So there – it’s not as sacrilegious as you thought.

The ladies in green (and pink) did started off a bit rough.  We wanted them to get used to playing different positions so we had everyone shuffled around.  Outfield was infield, second base was catcher, catcher was shortstop.

Everyone was jumbled up and confused, but with good reason.  Confusion keeps you on your toes and that’s how we like our Sluggers – toesie?

They had a few stumbles here and there but,

just like the cream of the crop we all know they are, the Sluggers rose to the top with their first win of the season.  It’s alway nice to start off with a win, don’t you think?

So, there you go.  Fall ball is underway and the first win of the season is in the books for the Sluggers.  Doesn’t the start of a new season get you all fired-up.

Remember, if you want to look at the full photo gallery from saturday, (and there is a lot), just click on any of the images and you’ll be whisked away to that big green slugger photo cloud.  Cool right?!

Fall – Ball Coaches Meeting Tonight

Attention All Coaches  – there will be a coaches meeting tonight at Smith Engineering Company. (401 North Pennsylvania Ave.) – 7:00pm

There has been some confusion among a few parents and players as well as one or two of the coaches over team rosters and the player registration.  We will be going over these issues and covering a few other things, like team colors and sponsor forms.  Please bring any questions you may have and paperwork you need to turn in.

Also, the RGSA is looking to fill some board positions for this season.  If you or someone you know is interested in helping out as a board member please come by or invite them to the meeting.
You know we do some important work here.

Fall-Ball Registration is Almost Over!!

We have had a number of calls and emails letting us know that some parents haven’t been able to register their players because, well because everyone is busy these days.  So, in an attempt to help out, we have extended registration by one week. September 4th, 5th and 6th will be the last days you can register your softball player for fall-ball.  We will be at the softball fields Thursday and Friday from 5:00pm till 8:00pm. We will also be there on Saturday the 6th from 10:00am till 1:00pm.

To help off-set the time that the board will be spending away from their regularly scheduled dance lessons we have instigated a new rule.  Each player registered on those last three days will have to provide at least one five minute dance lesson for the RGSA board members.  We hate to do this to our players but we really need those lessons.

just kidding -

Here are all the registration forms for the different age divisions in the R.G.S.A.  Pick any of the icons to open the age division form you are looking for, ages 6U – 14U.  You can open, print and/or download your form.
Fall registration fee is $35.00 per player and don’t forget to bring your players birth certificate.

6U Registration Form  8U Registration Form10U Registration Form   12U Registration Form

Also, if you are a coach or assistant coach you will need to fill out a Coaches Application and each team will need to have a team sponsor.  Here is a link for your sponsor form – Fall 2014 Team Sponsor Form. These will need to be completed and turned in with the sponsor fee before our season starts.
