Hamtramck Stadium was built in 1930 for the Detroit Stars of the Negro National League, and today it’s one just a handful of remaining Negro League-era ballparks left in existence.

Going to do a little random poll. If you have had a game cancelled this season (so far), was it due to weather, or due to one of the clubs not having enough players. If you have had some of each, please indicate.

Ex 1. We have lost (one) game due to weather.
Ex 2. We had (one) game cancelled as one club could not get enough players
Ex 3. We lost (one) game to weather and (one) game due to lack of players.

the (one) being where you put the actual quantity.

If you have not lost games this year for either reason, you dont need to reply. Just looking for how many games have been lost, and how many for each reason.

Thanks for your responses if you are able to take the time to respond, and please, we are not calling out specific clubs. Just comment a club cancelled.. not the actual club. Thanks

Thank you to all that attended the VBBA conference in Branson this past weekend. The weather was great, some good breakout sessions, and a great time to catch up with old and new friends. We hope to have the sessions that were live streamed set up and posted to the VBBA website soon, so watch this space for announcements on that.

On with the 2019 season and we wish the best to all clubs who are about to begin their seasons, and to those that may have already done so.

Strike well, and may the fields be green and the sky be blue for your matches.

PAID VBBA member clubs. If you havent already, please be sure to vote for the board positions of VBBA before the conference this weekend. Your CAPTAINS or TEAM MANAGERS should have the email with the ballot, and each paid member team gets 2 votes. NOT ALL PLAYERS GET THE EMAIL, just the captains or team managers. Contact them if you want to have a say on the vote. They should have the ballot to share with you if you are interested.

The ballot has a brief description/bio of each candidate to help you learn more about them.

Results will be announced on Sunday April 7th at the member meeting to close out the conference, and said results will be posted here sometime shortly after.

Oh, and dont forget to register to go to the conference this weekend ! Time is running short.. so now is the time to make the last second decision, or finally give in to that urge to be a part of this great event.

Hope to see you there !
