Treasurer’s Report – John Hession
Sports Engine, our web site provider, is trying to charge us for the Classic platform. Since we will not be having the classic this year, Terry Moran is working with them to see if that extra fee can be waived.
Motion to accept Treasurer’s Report by Callahan. Seconded by Cutler.
A poll was taken of the 22 pitchers as to how they want to pitch. Choice was: over the screen or to the side.
2 wanted to pitch over the screen,
15 pitchers want to leave the pitching screen as is.
2 said they didn’t care
3 didn’t respond
Motion by Prodgers to leave the pitching screen as it currently exist. Seconded by Callahan
Motion passes unanimously
There was a feeling that we lack enforcement as far as pitchers getting behind the screen after the pitch. A question of masks (pitching masks) came up again. We will have the Rules Committee relook at safety and enforcement and or mask usage.
Van thanked Richie for his work on the Rules Committee, but he is stepping down and Steve Marlin agreed to serve as Rules Committee Chair.
