From the president ...

Happy Summer!

I haven’t written a President’s letter in a few months. I figured you all seeing our Athlete of the Week videos was more than enough of me!

The word of the 2019 season: WEATHER. The silly rain kept us from so many regular season games, tournament games and other special activities. Every time we had to make the decision to cancel an event our hearts sank; especially the Closing Ceremonies. It would have been so special for us to all get together, share a hot dog and celebrate an amazing softball season. I have to say again THANK YOU to everyone for your flexibility, understanding and patience with us as these decisions were made. They were not easy but always done in the best interest and safety of our league.

Speaking of the 2019 season: how did it go?? Besides the weather of course (let’s never speak of rain again), we are very interested in your feedback of the season. We will be sending out a survey in the next few weeks in regards to your experience this year and would love to understand where we were successful and where our opportunities are. However, if you would prefer to email us at directly, we would love to hear from you.

Lastly, as mentioned before, our board has openings for the 2019-2020 season. This includes a website manager (if you can post on Facebook, you can do this job!) and my role as Director. I have to thank Liz Martin for all her assistance these past years as Webmaster. She took to the role beautifully and is a true advocate for all things GAL.

I am hoping to spend the 2019-2020 season onboarding a new Director. I am so proud of our momentum with GAL and will do everything within my abilities to keep that alive.

If you are interested in joining our board as a Webmaster, Interim Director or as an At Large member, please reach out to me at

GAL cannot survive without its volunteer board members; we would love to have you come aboard!

I hope you summer is joyous, the clouds stay away for a bit and you are all able to hit the grill!
