We’ll give you a hint: It won’t be former Giants pitcher Pete “The Maltese” Falcone.

Since 2003, I’ve heard literally thousands of comments along this line, “I wish they would bring back the old park league baseball program.” If you’re reading this, you are probably one of the people who shared this sentiment, and likely more than once!

Finally, after all these years, your voice has been heard and your wishes have come true. The ARPD youth baseball program is coming back in just a few months. Now that the new t-shirt league is on the offical books… WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The call to action for local park rats within the sound of my blog:

If you are in the greater Bay Area, please buy your tickets to our upcoming benefit event at the Alameda Theatre on March 20. ALL of the proceeds from this great event go direct to the new baseball program so kids can play for free. General Admission seats are just $10.00 and can be purchased on-line or in-person at the box office. The event is going to be chock full of fun surprises.

Please don’t wait. Hit a home run right now by clicking on this link and purchasing your tickets TODAY! $10 is a small price to pay for all the fun you once had playing ball at an Alameda park.

Did you miss me? Silly question. OF COURSE YOU DID!

Well fellow park rats, even if you didn’t notice my absence here on PlayBall! Alameda’s Sandlot Blog, I know for certain you’ve all missed the legendary Alameda T-Shirt Baseball League. Guess what? Like this blogging pundit, the league is back!

Thanks to the PlayBall! Advisory Committee, chaired by Kevin Kennedy, and in conjunction with Alameda Recreation and Park Department, Friends of the Parks, Alameda Theatre & Cineplex, and the original t-shirt league sponsor, Alameda Elks Club, kids will once again take to the baseball diamonds of Alameda for FREE supervised league play in the park!

The Advisory Committee, consisting of Alameda legends like Lil’ Arnerich, Adrienne Alexander-Chaix, Kyle Conner, John Costello, Eric Cross, Kevin Kearney, Cindi LaCroix, some character named Robles, and Bill Sonneman, joined Kevin to lead the charge in making this happen. It’s been a true labor of love for this crew working with the ARPD, now under Amy Woolridge, and ARPD Supervisor, Pat Russi (Rittler Wildcat).

A gala First Pitch Benefit Party is slated for the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex on Thursday, March 20, 2014. You won’t want to miss it. Some Longfellow Tigers are already growling how they will be best represented that night. We’ll see about that!

Stay tuned park rats because once again it’s time to PlayBall!!!
