The Dalles Thanks, volunteers
To the editor:
With the summer baseball-softball season behind us, I would like to thank all the Babe Ruth League volunteers who contributed their time and resources toward a very successful season.
The sponsorships and community support was again great. Our league enrollment continues to increase for regular season play and we were able to provide very competitive tournament play at the various age levels.
Special highlights of our season were the chartering of our first girls softball league, which represented the league in the regional tournament in Centralia, Wash.
A special thank you goes out to Ray Rodriguez of The Chronicle. His coverage of the baseball-softball program activities in the area and, for that matter, all the youth activities in the area was phenomenal.
Our young people really appreciate the fact that our community cares about what’s going on in their scholastic, extracurricular and sports activities.
Again, thanks to all our volunteers. You are the best.
Butch Hert, president
