Bayshore Picture Day / Closing DayUpdated Friday June 7, 2019 by Louis DiGrigorio.
The Bayshore 2019 Baseball & Softball picture day and closing day have finally been scheduled but before we get to the details we want to thank all the Bayshore families for your patience and understanding this year. Never before have had we a season with so much rain, we appreciate you working with us as we attempted to manage the season schedule in what has been a very wet year. The unfortunate thing for us is that all of our fields are located on wet marsh land so when it rains 17 weekends out of 19 our fields become ponds which leads to us having to scramble to get practices, games and umpires rescheduled.
We also would like to thank the DPW crew members from Keansburg and Union Beach townships. As usual they have done a wonderful job maintaining and preparing the fields for us but especially this year, we owe them very special thanks for the extra time and attention they have given this season.
We want to also thank our Little League partners who offered us their fields for make-up games. This was a huge help while our fields attempted to dry out.
We would also like to thank all of our team Manages, Coaches and Volunteers. As we rescheduled practices and games these folks had to make schedule changes in their lives to accommodate the leagues schedule changes. Having an every changing schedule of practices and games can become overwhelming when you are trying to work around your family and work schedules but somehow they all adapted to the situation and did a wonderful job so please when your see your team volunteers thank them.
With that said, we also would like to thank Billy Pachamango, Ray Preston and Bryan Cummings. These gentleman were responsible for scheduling the practices, games and umpires. Every year scheduling is a major undertaking but this year these gentleman really had the deck stacked against them week after week. Nice job gentleman, hopefully next season we will have much less rain.
