Mid-Season Classic
Volunteers Needed for our BOSL Mid-Season Classic

Hopefully everyone is off to a great start this year and enjoying the action on and off the field.  7 games in and ten tams are over 500 which is great to see as far as parity/balance goes!

As you all know, our league is what it is because of the countless volunteers that donate their time and efforts to benefit the league as a whole.  Many times it’s the familiar faces of your captains and board members that are the noticeable volunteers out there and, believe me, they all do an fantastic job week after week, year after year.  But the need for volunteers goes much deeper than just the captain and board level and, simply put, without the on-going help of the many other players, wives, etc., who donate their time throughout the year we wouldn’t be able to do many of the things we do as a league.

  • Individual volunteers for the Friday afternoon set-up and Sunday take-down are needed.

Please contact Michael Ciccone, Tournament Director with any questions.

Special Olympics Burlington
Volunteers Needed for our BOSL Mid-Season Classic

As you all know we have a special (no pun intended) relationship with our special olympic softball friends. Cate Hawkins - Community Coordinator Special Olympics Burlington runs the program and has asked for our help. Cate is looking for seven or eight volunteer umpires (no need to be carded, Don Radke, Dale Latendresse and Scot Cameron did it a couple years ago). Having said that I know we have a lot of players in our League who are also umpires. This is a fun day and would be good exposure for our league! Thanks so much for everyone's time and help in this upcoming special event!!!!

Please contact Brent Craigie or Dale Latendresse if you would like to lend a hand and try Umpiring for Burlington's Best Blues

"Thank you volunteers"

September, 2013
Just wanted to say thank you to the players that have emailed me over the season with the missing names from the team photo archives and Hall of Fame stats. A huge thank you to Andrea & Dale Latendresse for getting us the season and tournament photography every season - it seems to get even better every year - that new lens was worth every penny! And thanks to the players that have offered suggestions for website content and helped write our player bios. It's all of you that are making my job so easy.
