Change Team: 
Last game of the season
by posted 06/18/2021

Hi Bears,

I'm sorry to say our game this weekend is cancelled. None of the other teams have enough players to field a team. However, I was thinking if people are interested, we could all meet up at Gloy Days for lunch. If you're in for lunch let me know and I can try to reserve a table.

Game #9
by posted 06/11/2021

Hi Bears,

Thank you all for replying to my last email about possibly moving our game time this weekend. We don't have enough players to change our game, so we will stay with our scheduled 9:00 am game time tomorrow. However, with all the rain we got last night, and all the rain we are scheduled to get today, I'm 99% sure our game will be cancelled. I'll send confirmation first thing in the morning.

Practice #10 and Saturday game
by posted 06/09/2021

Hi Bears,

There is a pretty high chance we get rain this afternoon, so I'll check the Fairfax County weather hotline at 3:00 pm, and send out a text if practice is on or cancelled.

One of the other coaches reached out to me to ask if we could switch our 9:00 am game with their 11:00 am game this weekend. Before I reply, I want to know if we can field a team at 11:00 am. Please let me know if you can or cannot play at 11:00 am this weekend.

Thanks,

Chris

Practice #8 update

Bears,

We are in a severe thunderstorm warning until 4:45pm. I'm going to head to the fields with Ryan, in case we don't get anything. If it rains, practice will be cancelled. If you are not comfortable coming to practice, please don't come, I understand. For those that are still interested in coming, we'll be on the lookout for storms and take cover if they roll in.

Practice #8

Hi Bears,

Looks like the chance for showers today is going down. Right now it's 88 feels like 94, so make sure everyone brings plenty of water. I'll keep checking on the weather and send out another email if practice is cancelled. Otherwise, we should be good to go.

Hi Bears,

Just want to send a quick note to remind everyone practice will be led by coach Jared and coach Joe tonight. Thanks again guys! We'll see you all next week!

On another note, we will have another Friday Night game this season. I was told it would be on June 4th, but I've already heard there is a conflict with that date. Once I know more, I'll let you all know. Hopefully this time the scheduling is better.

Friday Night Game
by posted 05/13/2021

Hi Bears,

I've been hearing through the grapevine that folks are asking for a list of kids names phonetically spelled out and at-bat music. I haven't been asked directly for this from MDLL, but in case they ask me last minute I'm reaching out to everyone. If you can, please send me the phonetic spelling of your player's name and a song he wants to walk up to.

Thanks,

Chris

Practice #5 Update
by posted 05/05/2021

Hi Bears,

So, I guess the rain last night and today was enough to close the fields. Parklawn fields are closed, so no practice. This weekend our game is 11:00 am. See you all there.

Practice #5 and Friday Night Game
by posted 05/05/2021

Hi Bears,

So, I was about to say we should be good to practice, then the sky opened up and dumped rain all over. I'll call the weather hotline at 3:00 pm and see if the fields are closed. I'll let you know what I hear. If you would like to call, here is the number (703) 324-5264.

In other news, we are scheduled to have a Friday Night Lights game May 14 (next Friday) at 5:00 PM. The game will be at Pudge Field, and there will be a AA game right after our game at 7:00 PM. I haven't heard if we will be allowed to stay and watch that game, or if there will be any food trucks there. I'm guess not, but if I hear anything, I'll let everyone know.

Hi Bears,

Looks like the weather is holding up for us and we should be a go for practice tonight. I was able to get pants for those of you that let me know you still needed some, and I'll have them tonight.

Please dress warm tonight. The tempature has already started dropping and will continue to drop and be windy as the sun goes down.

Practice #3
by posted 04/20/2021

Good morning Bears!

I reached out to Phil Headley concerning more baseball pants for our team. I should be able to pick those up today and I will bring them to practice tomorrow. As of today there is a quick thunderstorm forecasted for tomorrow, but I'm hoping the fields don't get too wet. During the week we can all call 703-324-5264 after 3:00 pm to find out if the fields are closed by Fairfax County Parks. I will send out an email before practice to let everyone know if practice is cancelled or not.
 
Hope to see you all tomorrow,
Chris

Game #2

Good morning all,

Our game is at 11:00 am this morning, and I haven't heard about any field closures. Someone should be coming by with more baseball pants during the games, but bring some practice pants just in case. We will have some snacks for after the game, but understand if you bring your own. If anything changes, I'll let you know.

Hi all,

It's been raining most of the day, and I'm afraid it seems there is no break in the rain anytime soon. I'm making the call to cancel practice tonight. Sorry for the late notice, but I was really hoping the weather gang was going to be wrong today.

Looking forward to our game this weekend.

Game #1 and Practice

Hi all,

Thank you all for replying with your availability for a make up game this week. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it work this week. I'll keep trying to reschedule our game 1 at a later date. I know the weather in the spring can difficult, which leads me to my next point. There is a good chance that practice on Wednesday will be rained out also. As soon as I know more, I'll reach out to you all.

Hope to see you all tomorrow.

Thanks

Hi all,

I'm reaching out to the other coach this morning to find out what are playing conditions are like. I received and email this morning, that our game may be cancelled this morning. I will let you know as soon I hear back. If we are cancelled, I'll see everyone Wednesday night. If we are a go for our game, please submit the same MDLL form you submitted before practice, and try to get to the fields ten minutes early so we can check our temperatures and be ready to start at 9 pm.

I will try to email out with a "Go" or "No Go" for our game by 8 am. Please be on the lookout for the email.

First Practice
by posted 04/05/2021

Hi all,

It took me some time to get our practice scheduled, but I finally got it. We are scheduled to start practicing this Wednesday evening (4/7) from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm at Parklawn Elementary. I don't think we will go the full hour and a half, but it will be good to get out on the field. We are also scheduled to play our first game this Saturday morning at 9:00 am on the same field as practice. As soon as I can, I will send out our complete game schedule.

The address for Parklawn Elementary is

4116 Braddock Rd, Alexandria

See you on Wednesday.

Welcome to Single A
by posted 04/02/2021

Hi All,

My name is Chris Rodriguez, and I'll be coaching our team this spring. First, I want to apologize for the late notification, I've been offline this week. I'm excited for baseball season and to get our kids back on the field. My son Ryan is on the team, and is looking forward to playing again since our family took a break from playing sports last year.

I'm playing catch up on all the Little League emails, and need to figure out our practice schedule. I hope to update you all later today, so be on the lookout for anther email from me tonight. As of right now, it looks like Monday or Wednesday evenings we will be practicing at Parklawn Elementary (lower), but I'll confirm that as soon as I can.

Also, trying to get a list of anyone insterested in helping out as an assistant coach. This is my first time as coach, and I'll need some help with the kids during pratice, as well as during the games. Please send me an email (rodriguezchris.p@gmail.com) if you are interested.

Thank you,

Chris Rodriguez
