There are two fun events in April that LGSA parents and players will enjoy.
Livermore Stampede Tournament - April 2-4
Livermore High School's annual Stampede tournament attracts the top softball teams in the Bay Area and takes place at our own Ernie Rodrigues (Robertson) Park. If you're home during Spring Break, come by to support the Livermore teams and give your daughter a chance to see some great teams playing high-level softball.
This is a fantastic opportunity for LGSA families! On Sunday April 12th, LGSA parents and players are invited to attend a college softball game featuring 12th-ranked Cal (UC Berkeley) vs. UNLV. LGSA players who attend the game can participate in the following activities:
Pre-game "high 5" tunnel with the Cal players
Pre-game starting line up
Post-game run the bases
Tickets are only $5 each and can be purchased at the LGSA Snack Shack. Availability is limited so buy your tickets today!
Congratulations to our Players of the Week! Click here to see the complete list for the whole season.
Madison Boutwell (T-Ball): "In our game this week Madison caught 2 pop flies on defense, and in her 3 at bats, she hit the first pitch every time with power. Two of the hits went into the outfield for doubles. Madison plays hard no matter what position she plays and has excellent sportsmanship."
Madden Black (7U): "Madden was 2 for 2 at bat this week with a single and a double. She also earned an out in the field! Madden has been playing great softball all season."
McKenzie Wisely (8U): "McKenzie has done an incredible job this year for the Dolphins. She is dedicated, shows up to every practice and does a wonderful job backing up her teammates. The highlight of last week for McKenzie was the phenomenal double play she turned from the short stop position. She snagged a line drive that was screaming her way, caught the ball and threw it to first base to double up the runner who had not tagged up. In two games she went 4-4 and had multiple strike outs from the pitching position."
Makenna Smith (9U): "Makenna had an amazing week at the rubber striking out 6 batters and making 3 outs at first after fielding the ball. She also played catcher this week and did a great job knocking balls down and blocking them from getting by her. At the plate Makenna hit 3 singles, a triple and got a walk. Makenna leads her team in the dug out with cheers and sets a great example for her teammates. She keeps a positive attitude and always tries her hardest."
Jorja Burbano (10U): "Jorja has had an amazing season so far. She is a talented player that shows strength in hitting, as well as several field positions including catcher, outfield, and 3rd base. She always has a positive attitude and great team spirit. In our two games this weekend, she was 3 for 4 at bat which also resulted in 3 RBIs! In the field, she threw a runner out at home and got a runner out while stealing due to her quick thinking and strong arm! We are lucky to have Jorja as part of our team and our very proud of what she has accomplished so far!"
For the safety of our players, everyone that wants to help on the field or in the dugout during practices or games must have a background check. To help LGSA cover some of the expense of a background check, there is a $20 fee per person.
Background checks are good for two years. If you completed an LGSA background check last year, you do not need to register as a Team Volunteer this year.
To get started:
First you'll need an LGSA account. If you have a player in the league, you or your spouse should already have an account. See Account Help for tips on logging into your account.
If you don't have a player in the league and need an account, you'll be able to create one during registration.
