As the season winds down it’s time again to put in a good word for your favorite coach, manager, or volunteer of the year.
The deadline is Monday, November 14th so get your vote in now.
This post is not directly related to soccer (it involves that sport with the sticks) but it’s for a good cause and bringing kids from around the world together which is always a good thing.
Next August (8/5/17 to 8/12/17) Alameda will host the World Baseball Tournament, featuring 14 and 15 year old teams from around the world. This tournament had its beginning in 1973. Since then it has become common practice for the host country to home-stay the international players. This year the tournament will feature teams from Australia, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, and Singapore playing against teams from San Diego, Hawaii, Fresno and, of course, Alameda.
In addition to player home-stay, we are responsible for running the tournament and providing transportation, hosting an A’s game, providing the necessary fields, umpires, field preparation, scorekeepers, announcers, opening and closing ceremonies, running the snack bar, and hosting a welcome party for all players and families involved. In addition to home-stay parents, we are looking for corporate and individual sponsors whose financial contributions and donations will be recognized through advertising during the course of the tournament. All donations are tax-deductible.
If you are interested in learning more about the tournament you can contact Ken Cala, the President of the Board, at (510) 917-8280 or email@example.com, Randy Marmor, Vice-President, at (510) 418-7451 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Bill Dal Porto, International Relations, at (510) 521-5564 or email@example.com.

This is a great chance to show the players we can do what we are telling them to do every game and every practice. It is played in a light-hearted manner with players of all abilities making an appearance.
There will be food and refreshments available. We will also have a small soccer field for kids coming watching the game to play on at the side.
We look forward to seeing you there!
