Note From Outgoing WMLL President Greg Stewart

Updated Sunday October 29, 2017 by Blake Rhodes.

Dear Families of WMLL,

I know this note is a bit tardy, summer is over, but the boys of summer are still going strong and as I type this I’m still excited about the ‘instant classic’ Game 2 between the Dodgers and Astros!  The Little League season came to an official end in August with the crowning of Japan as Little League Champions.  Japan defeated the US Champions – the Southwest Region winner, Lufkin, Texas.

As the years go by we have access to dozens of televised Little League games, and I know I felt a lot of pride being part of the world’s largest organized youth sports organization. Here in West Marin Little League, we had a fantastic season, and I wanted to take a moment to recap some of the highlights and discuss future plans. I wanted to say thank you again to everyone who helped make our West Marin Little League Spring season such a successful endeavor:

  • A huge thanks to all the volunteer Coaches who spent countless hours with our players
  • A sincere thanks to our incredibly dedicated Board for all their time and energy – with special thanks to Blake Rhodes whose tireless contribution and dedication to our league and community has been extraordinary.
  • Thank you to our snack shack coordinators Robyn Burton, Nicole Nagulko, John Mahl and Tatiana Jung-Macias and those folks who helped keep our shacks stocked and loaded.
  • Thank you to Steph Lapine and Manuel Guzman for all the scheduling help.
  • A huge thank you to all of our sponsors!

Congrats to our season Champions:

  • AA – Blue Jays
  • AAA Minors – Mariners
  • Majors – Yankees
  • Juniors – Giants

The four West Marin All Star teams had a great showing in the District 3 Tournament, with our Juniors team winning District 3 – WMLL’s first district pennant in almost 10 years -- and advancing to the Section 1 Semifinals.

We are busy at work preparing for the Spring 2018 season and with that I wanted to reiterate that we are a volunteer organization. The WMLL Board has grown substantially over the last few years and there are many fresh faces with big time energy and ideas that are sure to keep our league thriving for many years to come!

Speaking of new Board members, I am happy to announce that Carrie Pratt has been voted in as the new WMLL President. For those of you who don’t know Carrie, she has been very involved with our league operations for the last few years.  Carrie, her husband Wes and two sons are a family who simply love the game of baseball!  Carrie is already doing a fantastic job leading WMLL!

I want to thank everyone for their support over the last three years– it has been my honor to have served as President.

Regards,

Greg Stewart
