New Structure: All ADA’s will be responsible for their league and 2 or 3 other leagues in D3. All questions and concerns are to be directed to them.

Blue Sombraro will be the new website D3 will use. Every league in D3 needs to use this website. Only a few leagues are using it now. Blue Sombraro is spending a lot of money on this. It is associated with Dicks Sporting goods. It costs nothing  to use and send in your payments. However, if you use a credit card you will have a cost.

Senior league softball anybody interested? Ages are 13-16 year olds. We need to set a deadline for getting this decided.

T-ball tournament is anybody interested? Nina Johnston-Pitt , at Central Region, needs to approve this tournament. Start asking your leagues if they want to play. It will be a weekend tournament, $50.00 per team fee, possibly middle of the season.

Under no circumstance shall a player pitch in 3 consecutive days. 69% approval by Congress.
