We will now play a 1 game championship tomorrow night - Wednesday, the 26th
AAA Final Smitty's vs. Denny's is rescheduled. Game 1 is now Tuesday (6/25) Game 2 is Thursday (6/27) and Game 3 (if necessary) will be Tuesday (7/2). Thank you
The AAA Championship begins next week and it should be an exciting and competitive series. The board would like to remind everyone of the leagues sportsmanship and conduct policies. This can also be found on the website at the following link https://www.gmlb.org/league-bylaws-rules-policies.html
A reminder about our umpiring situation. It is very challenging to find credentialed umpires. As a youth sports organization that is about learning and developing baseball players, it is also an opportunity to develop umpires. We do have a number of teenage umps. They allow us to play games - and they are learning right along with the players. They are going to make mistakes and that is ok. Please support them just like the players. Finally, if you would like to be an umpire or hear about what it takes to umpire in our league, please reach out to a board member or a coach/manager. We can always use volunteers.

The board met last night and has the following policy for concession volunteering: Teams on Lunt 3 are each responsible for having a concession volunteer. The volunteers must be an ADULT. Children of the adults are allowed to help but no child should be handling money or working the register.
A note on the importance of concession for GMLB. The concession revenue covers a lot of the costs to run the league in the regular season. Most of the items are donated which allows us to use the profits to pay for field maintenance (mowing), umpires, and electricity. Having volunteers to run the concession keeps costs down. And of course when parents pay for team treats that is also a great help!
Many thanks for your time and support - GMLB Board
