M-A Little League wrapped up 2018 at the annual Coach Appreciation Dinner, held on November 7 at Lutticken’s in Menlo Park. At the event, the League announced its two most prestigious coaching awards: the Rory Fuerst Award and the Scott Barnum Award.
The Rory Fuerst Award is M-A Little League’s highest honor for a coach, intended to recognize a person who has given continually over significant time – not only for her or his own children but to the greater M-A LL community – leaving a lasting positive impact on the league. Put simply, the award recognizes an individual who “left the league in a better place than he found it.” New M-A LL President Brian Roberts announced that the winner of the 2018 Rory Fuerst Award, as voted on by the Board, is Bill McGrath. In his tenure as a coach and board member over the better part of a decade, Bill mentored countless kids on the field, teaching them a love of baseball and many important life lessons. He also served as the league’s liaison with city and school district officials, creating and nurturing relationships that make our community a better place for everyone.
The Scott Barnum Award is given to the coach who best exemplifies the “spirit” of M-A Little League: “Play Fair, Strive to Win, Do One’s Best.” Coaches are nominated by their peers in each division to receive their division’s PCA Sportsmanship Award at the conclusion of the Spring season. The M-A LL Board then selects one of these division coaches as the Scott Barnum Award winner, who then becomes the league’s official nominee for the Positive Coaching Alliance’s “Double Goal Coach Award.” The winner of the 2018 Scott Barnum Award is Drew Crousore. This is Drew’s second time winning the esteemed award, a truly remarkable achievement.
It is our good fortune and honor to have both Bill and Drew as a part of the M-A Little League community. Please join us in congratulating them for their outstanding contributions and accomplishments.
When considering Little League baseball equipment for holiday gifts and in advance of the Spring season, please remember that a very important new rule is being implemented relative to eligible bats for Little League baseball nationwide. Effective January 1, 2018, only bats with a USABat stamp will be permitted in Little League practices and games above the T-ball level. All bats with the stamp - including "big barrel" bats - will be legal. Please take a close look at this picture and make sure you see the stamp on any new bat you purchase!
Menlo-Atherton Little League will not be supplying the new bats to players. There is a wide range of pricing for the new bats, and high quality bats can be purchased at affordable prices. Having a correctly sized bat is of paramount importance. Kids swinging bats which are too heavy is a much more common problem than kids swinging bats which are too light. Buying inexpensive bats and upgrading regularly is a better strategy than spending a lot and trying to get many years out of the same bat. Please keep this in mind when purchasing a new bat.
If you have any questions about the new bats, please contact us at Player_Development@m-all.org or Equipment@m-all.org.
