GOT LIGHTS? 

City Council passed a resolution supporting the light project.

With the help of Brent Hays (Hayes Construction), Diagnostic Hybrids, James Trout (Trout Electrical), CDBG and AEP, we anticipate installing the lights sometime this spring. 

Thanks to everyone who wrote in, e-mailed and called in support of the lights! You helped make the lighting project possible!

Athens Sandlot received a $2500 grant award funded by Diagnostic Hybrids, Inc to go towards the cost of the lights.  Thanks DHI!

We couldn't further the light cause without some community help.  Below, left to right, are pictured Cindy Hayes on behalf of Brent Hayes, James Trout of Trout Electric and County Commissioner Mark Sullivan who were all instrumental in saving the lighting of Fenway.

      

PARADE The parade was a hit! Finally good weather allowed the parade to get underway and everyone had a great time! The Southern Ohio Copperheads even stopped by!  Below are some of players who showed up early.







PARADE! Thanks to Realtor Susan Barga from the Larry Contrath Home Team for sponsoring the parade again this year!  This is Susan's third year!



OPENING DAY CEREMONIES 
Kyler Springer threw the first pitch to his grandpa, Roger Springer for the opening day cermonies.  Kyler was hit by a pitch towards the end of the 7th grade season which caused some concern for those who were there.  But Kyler bounced back to finish out the season! So to celebrate his return we asked him to throw out a ceremonial ball which he did with admirably!

Additionally, Athens Sandlot Board Member George McCarthy threw a ceremonial baseball to Kris Kostival. George is one of the original board members and Kris is one of the newer board members. George's youngest son Ryan was injured earlier in the year and was not present. This was Ryan's last year in Sandlot but he had a knee injury during one of the early practices. 

George's older boy Kyle was on the first Athens Sandlot team back in 2003.  Kyle was playing in a JV game so Kris filled in to catch the pitch which was clocked somewhere around 40-100 mph (closer to 100 though I'm pretty sure).
