Team Update 5/4/21
As previously communicated, we thought it would be fun to do a picnic in between the games. Feel free to either bring a picnic lunch for your family OR we have set up a group order through Milio’s. Milio’s will deliver to the fields between 3:15-30. To order, just click on the link, place an order for your family (make sure to put a name on it where indicated) and then check-out. *Update: Please pay Michelle Heins via Venmo for your order. If you could please include a small tip to the driver, that would also be appreciated. Venmo: @MrsMichelle8 The deadline to order Milio’s is Friday at 6pm.
Feel free to bring camp chairs. There are only a couple tables, so you may want to bring a blanket or your own folding table. Freeman concessions will be open also with candy treats. Remember that Freeman does not have fountains, so bring enough water for the day.
Team pictures 11:15am Saturday.
Please wear the white jersey and have your complete uniform on. Hat, pants, belt, jersey tucked in. Pictures will be outside of Kemmetmueller Studio at 18336 Minnetonka Blvd, Wayzata, MN 55391. We will be doing a team photo. Please have masks on and after everyone is lined up, we will remove them for the photo and then put them back on. Sometime after Saturday I will receive links for each family to place their photo order. Kemmetmueller will be sending me these links and I will forward to each individual family. No need to worry about order forms on Saturday. We will head to the ball field after pictures for warm ups.
Please make sure to sign up for your volunteer shift on the MBA website. Shifts are continually added to the site. If you are interested in getting your credit by helping out with the Golf Tournament fundraiser, please email Sponsorship & Fundraising Director Susie Weir Duwe at email@example.com
Freeman Concessions will now be open on weekends as of 5/1. Bennett concession is open too!
We now have the ability to control the scoreboard via app at Freeman and Bennett Park. The home team is responsible for doing this, if we so choose. If there are a couple people that would like to take on this role, please let me know.
Exact instructions found on the MBA website http://www.minnetonkabaseball.org/Page.asp?n=123299&org=minnetonkabaseball.org
This is available at all fields with a scoreboard*
*Bennett 1 and Vets do not have this capability
Bennett 2 is currently not working due to electrical issues - but will be fixed asap
Bennett 1 is having some issues with manual scoring, and this has been surfaced to Bennett to fix
Download the DAK APP to be ready for games. This requires you to have bluetooth on, so come with a full battery!
The Chanhassen American Legion is sponsoring Live Streaming for all teams in MBA for 2021. This is through an app on your phone and anyone can watch the game live. In order to do this, we would need a parent or two who would be willing to be in charge of this. It requires either a smartphone, tablet, GoPro style camera and tripod that can be used for the duration of the game. We have detailed instructions on how to set this up, as well as a Sunday evening Zoom meeting to meet with Sporfie to get things set up and answer questions. If you would like to do this, please let me know and I will send you information.
