This Saturday, March 28, all children in the Nether Swarthmore Baseball program are invited to see a Swarthmore College baseball doubleheader against Dickinson College on the college campus.
Children can join the college players on the field for the National Anthem and participate in between-game and post-game activities, including the chance to run the bases. There will also be fun giveaways and refreshments. This is a great opportunity to showcase our program and experience high-level quality college baseball. Families should arrive at noon that day, as the first game is scheduled to begin at 12:30.
Please join us for a fun afternoon of baseball!
Nether Swarthmore Baseball and Swarthmore Recreation Association need your help in preparing the baseball field behind Swarthmore Rutledge School (SRS) for the 2015 season. We look forward to using this field (with its off-street parking, shady fan views, and a nice playground) for our T-Ball and Rookies programs, as well as a practice space.
WHO: Adult volunteer fans, coaches, interested community members.
Please note: For safety, we'd prefer only adult volunteers working with tools, etc. - children are welcome to play on the playground.
WHAT: Baseball field renovation (see list of planned work)
WHEN: Saturday, April 4th, 9 AM -3 PM (Come when you can; we'll stay until the work is done); Makeup/Rain Date: Saturday, April 4, 9 AM -3 PM
WHERE: SRS Baseball Field, 100 College Ave., Swarthmore, PA
WHY: Baseball! Kids! Community!
BRING: Work gloves, a rake or shovel (including trowels) or two, some water. If you can spare a wheelbarrow, 1-2 would help the work go faster and easier.
We have volunteer commitments for a tractor to drag the infield and a sod roller to smooth out the bumps. There might not be much growth by 3/21, but we may need a mower and some edge trimmers. NSB will also provide some additional rakes, shovels, buckets, and fill dirts.
PLEASE RSVP to Terry Lynch (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can make it to help us organize the work and timing. Thank you!

Dear Baseball Parents,
I write to ask if you would like to donate any used baseball equipment to unclutter your houses and to support NPAA-SRAs ongoing partnership with Chester's Jackie Robinson Little League. The league has about 100 kids, ages 8-12 and a new league of 13-15 year olds. These leagues have helped to make Chester's high school baseball program stronger over the past several years. My son Casey, who played NPAA-SRA baseball for years, is interested in helping those families unable to afford new equipment, especially gloves, bats, helmets, and cleats (but also pants/belts). We are willing to come by your house and pick up anything you'd like to donate; or feel free to drop it off on my front porch at 409 Bickmore Drive, Wallingford (Bickmore is off of Rose Valley Rd). Cash donations or Modell's Gift Cards are also welcome. If you're able to support the program, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and a good time for us to swing by to pick up the equipment. In advance, many thanks for supporting this important initiative.
See flyer above for details!

We look forward to your participation.
