Monroe Baseball & Softball is putting together FREE informal monthly Baseball Managers Roundtable meetings at a local establishment. starting in November. The goal would be to not only encourage and orient new parents who wish to get involved, but also to improve and coordinate efforts League-wide. We would most likely meet for an hour or two locally on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening.
Come December 2014, we should have a new baseball Coaching Coordinator appointed who will will be actively involved in this as well.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO MONROE BASEBALL & SOFTBALL AND ARE INTERESTED IN MANAGING A TEAM THIS SPRING, BUT DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE AND/OR WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE TO START, THE FIRST COUPLE OF MEETINGS WOULD BE FOR YOU!
