BASEBALL PARKING AND TRASH

Patch file photo.
Patch file photo.

Once again,  deaf ears and blind eyes.   Baseball and the equistrian communities must go exist.  Yesterday, I observed many cars parking on the trails and horses barely being able to get by without falling in the ditch.   Please do not park on the trails.  After only one week of baseball... 

1,  SLOW DOWN and be respectful driving to the field.

2. PICK UP the trash. It is ugly and it for sure would not look pretty on the pitchers mound.

3.  PLEASE STAY AWAY from the horses.  They will bite and we horse owners will be held responsible for your lack of knowledge for these majestic creatures.

Thank you...

Jim - you are wonderful for cleaning up all that trash that the others left, by the way!! Hopefully more kids and adults will follow your example.

Jim, if you could also have the LL Pres remind parents to not park on the trail. So far, those that I've seen and told to please not park on the trail have been nice about it. I also want to mention, that there were cigarette butts this morning in the parking lot. I park same place every day and the butts were not there yesterday. Not assuming anything, but in years past I have caught many adults attending the games smoking in or around the cars and on the trails. I caught one lady smoking by my barn last year. Yes, I confronted her and was not nice about it. Thank you - Jim......

Yes, we need to do a much better job of being good visitors in the neighborhood. Have sent out emails to the coaches and league Prez. Will continue to get the word out. Like was mentioned, will make sure they know, then let's see if what happens...

Trash update: After several emails to the powers-that-be, the RHLL Board apparently took up this issue. One of the suggestions being considered was a "treats-for-trash" program to help with the problem. So that reflects at least some recognition of the problem and our responsibility. Then it went another direction. Reportedly, some parents objected to having their kids pick up trash. Go ahead and fill in your own punchline. Instead, they decided to hire someone to pick up our trash. Again, fill in your own punchline. At this point, not sure if we've taken two steps forward and three back or the other way around, but at least the issue will be addressed in some fashion. It strikes me as a missed opportunity to connect the dots of responsibility for the kids, but perhaps some progress is better than none at all. But, it doesn't feel like that from here. I'm not done with this quite yet.

Jim - I sent email to the Little League President thanking him of the progress. He was INCREDIBLY RUDE in his response.... I truly think he should NOT be president and I am actually not surprised by the response from parents in respect to the kids who will be allowed to litter, but not pick it up and place it in the proper recepticles. If parents don't wish to teach their kids how to properly respect their surroundings - it's sad. I will do whatever it takes to continue going forward and a HUGE THANK YOU for your help as well.
