Edition #12 May 23, 2023
What a day! It started with a team of parents and our field manager Joe Dietz rebuilding the mound at Main Field (it rained the night before) and ended with a few finishing touches after a successful closing day ceremony.
In between, we had two division champions crowned, a well played AAA playoff game that was back and forth the whole way and our closing ceremonies. Congrats to the A Red Sox and the AA Angels!
I’m a dad and I had skin in two of the games played Saturday. My heart was beating out of my chest at times. I don’t ever remember being so nervous when I played. I guess it’s true what they say about wearing your heart on your sleeve as a parent.
After closing day, I took a second and sat down in right field and I looked at all our children playing together and parents talking about summer and plans for next year’s domination strategy. All I could think about is what a fantastic community this is. All because of you – parents, coaches and volunteers. What a great experience we are all giving our kids, as they learn about friendship, teamwork, leadership and hopefully a little bit about baseball. Thank you. It was a great year!

Mister Little League is stepping down after this year. Don’t worry, he’ll still be around, but let’s take a moment to say thank you. You lived and breathed Laguna Hills Little League and held us all together and enabled us to thrive. You built a strong community of volunteers and friendships.
We know it wasn’t always easy and there were decisions you didn’t want to make and conversations that you didn’t want to have. It’s not easy making everyone happy. But all in all you had a pretty good winning percentage. You left it better off then when you got it.
So let’s virtually tip our caps, and say thanks to one of the great ones. You’re a good man Dan Mandel.
Laguna Hills is hosting the 10 year old all-star District 55 tournament this year. We need volunteers. If you’re a fan of youth baseball you will not want to miss it. There is a ton of talent and close fought games – so come on down and be a part of this community event.
