BOSL NEWS – President's Message 2017
Welcome to the 2017 Season!
This will be the BOSL’s 38th season of operation and I am looking forward to another year of fun, fellowship and some baseball!
It has been a busy off-season for the 2017 Board of Directors. Our 2017 recruiting campaign has brought more than 50 new and returning players!
Our strong registration has allowed us to add 2 more teams making the BOSL an 18 team league. I would like to thank our returning and new team sponsors as well as our returning and new captains - thanks as always for stepping up and being role models for the BOSL.
Our schedule needs to change for this season. We all know that there are limited diamonds suitable for our league and the city of Burlington is also busy upgrading the diamonds, so we have moved away from a Tuesday and Thursday schedule to ensure we retain the best available diamonds in Burlington. For the most part we will be playing at Nelson Central, Millcroft and Sherwood North diamonds. In August Sherwood North goes under construction and we will use Brant Hills as a replacement for the remainder of the season.
What differentiates the BOSL from any other league is our commitment to "Giving back to the Community" and as was communicated earlier, we have chosen to support The Burlington Food Bank Partnership West again for this season. It was so rewarding to see how our contributions helped those in need at a time of the year when supplies were low.
So we are ready for what i am sure will be a great season. Don't forget to support our key fund raising events - Golf Day, the "Beat the Board" Tournament and our year end Banquet. I know you will all have a great time as always and look forward to seeing everyone on the field soon!
