You have probably heard by now that Terry Moran has decided to “step down” as our Webmaster and member of the Board of Directors effective Friday, May 15, 2021.
His decision was based on several factors including work and family responsibilities and as president of the Cotuit Kettleers of the Cape Cod Baseball League, a major challenge as the teams prepare for the 2021 season.
For those members who are not familiar with Terry, let me share a few accomplishments he has achieved. Terry served for eight years on the CCSSL Board and was elected as our sixth Commissioner and served two terms (4 years). Prior to his tenure on the on the Board period Terry assumed the role as Webmaster for the League in 2013―a tremendous responsibility which he continued until this season. He also served as Chairman of the By-Laws Committee, Policy Committee, revised the application process and served as an umpire for 11 years, team manager, and PEAC member to name just a few tasks he has undertaken throughout his tenure with CCSSL.
Unquestionably, Terry has certainly given his effort, commitment, and wholehearted dedication to the League and we―all of us― appreciate it very much! I am certain his decision to retire will have a profound impact on the volumes of information he has generated each week, keeping our members fully informed and engaged regarding league activities.
On a personal note―I shall personally miss Terry as a colleague, Board member, confidant and, importantly, a true friend who often assisted me in making decisions. Terry, a warm thank you for your outstanding attention to details as you performed your role as Webmaster during these past many seasons.
Effective May 16, 2021 JIM Gunning, member of Division 1, has agreed to assume the position of Webmaster for the remainder of the 2021 season. We look forward to appointing Jim to a permanent position once he is established and comfortable in this important new assignment. We also thank Jim for “stepping up” and volunteering for this assignment and are most confident that he and Terry will coordinate a smooth transition as we move forward.
In my recent conversations with Terry, he has requested that, as of May 15, 2021, all further correspondence and postings on the website should be forwarded to Jim Gunning for official actions. And, further, any postings on the website should be approved by the Commissioner in order to maintain some semblance of order and priority.
Finally, Jim Gunning will begin his duties on May 16, 2021 and may be contacted at:
