Hi Tball Eaters parents,
My name is Emily Lawrence Mendoza and I have volunteered to be our team parent this season. I have been a team parent for my older son's teams for many years and look forward to a great season.
Last week there was a team parent meeting and from that, I have some important info to share.
1) Parent Volunteer Requirements: (every family is responsible to earn 4 volunteer points per child), here are the required positions our team still needs to fill. There will be other opportunities to earn points throughout the season as well but we must fill these spots first. All positions listed below are valued at 4 points.
a. Manager (Filled)
b. Asst. Coach (Filled)
c. Asst. Coach
d. Team Parent (Filled)
e. Dugout Parent
f. Fields (home team is responsible for the set up for the fields/visiting team is responsible for post-game needs, i.e. raking, watering, putting away bases if needed)
g. Team Sponsorship ($300 minimum)
h. Donate Silent Auction Basket ($100 value)
You can sign up for volunteer roles on our google sheet here:
2) Team Budget
a. $45, league recommendation is $40-60 but I think we will be fine with $45 per player, if we are unable to secure a team sponsor we will divide the cost amongst all families on our team.
You can Venmo me @ emily-lawrence-15 or bring a check to our next practice (please note your player's name).
b. Team budget to cover: team banner, embroidery of hats, small coaches gifts, dug out bins, and team parties
a. Unsure when these will be provided but will have these prior to our first game
b. Includes: hat, uniform shirt, belt, and socks
c. Pants: parent responsibility, the team manager will determine the color
4) Opening Day
a. No parade of teams or pancake breakfast this year due to COVID restrictions
b. Opening Day: April 17th, game at 11:00 AM
5) Picture Day
a. April 24th, time TBD
b. All players receive a basic package which includes a memory mate (1 sheet which has team photo/individual photo) and button
c. If additional photos are wanted, the form/payment must be completed on-line prior to picture day at https://www.sportleaguephotos.com/prepay.html
6) Snack Schedule
a. Snack typically includes 1or 2 prepackaged snack items and one beverage in a brown bag for each player and will be handed out at the end of the game. Sign up for one or two games here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0A4FACA92AA2FA7-tball
b. New Snack Bar Option ($3/snack bag), or you may individually make snack bags
i. Able to order day of game, form will be at snack bar
ii. Snack will include a drink and 1-2 snacks
iii. Bagged and delivered to team dugout prior to ending of the game in a crate (please return the crate to the snack bar)
I will send out additional details and information as I receive it. Please do not hesitate to email me at
or call/text me at (714) 767-6752. Looking forward to a fun season!
