MVGS NEWS

MVGS will be offering "Softball Training Sessions (STS)" to give players a chance to dive deeper with their skills and focus on specific positions in a small group setting. 

For our SECOND FALL SERIES, we'll be focusing on PITCHING. So whether you are interested in learning how to fastpitch or just starting to pitch or have been pitching for multiples seasons, this series is for you! 

We're excited to welcome Gary Mullican who will lead our second, two-part series of our STS program scheduled for
Saturday, Sep. 29 & Oct. 6, 3:00pm-4:00pm.

Since each session in this series is meant to build on the next, only sign up if you can COMMIT TO BOTH SATURDAYS in the series. Spots are limited and will fill up quickly. This series is open to 8U, 10U, and 12U MVGS rec & select players.

Cost: $30
Location: William S. Craycraft Park (Alicia Park), Field #3
Must register by Thu 9/27 to secure a spot.

**IMPORTANT: ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BRING ALONG A CATCHER (can be another parent, coach, teammate)**

Don't forget to bring water!

MVGS COACHES ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND, OBSERVE, and LEARN DRILLS AND SKILLS TO INCORPORATE INTO THEIR OWN PRACTICES

 

Calling all softball-loving crafty folks!! Our special events director is looking for a few parents who are interested in helping out with a fun fall activity with our league players:

The city of Mission Viejo is holding its 2nd annual Scarecrow Contest so MVGS needs to represent! If you’d like more info or would like to lend a hand, please contact Jennifer Karr before 9/26jgablekarr@me.com

 

 

 

The MVGS BOARD is looking to form a SNACK BAR COMMITTEE under the direction of Jessica Perez, our amazing SNACK BAR DIRECTOR. If you're interested in getting more involved in the board without the requirements and obligations of a board role, we'd love to have you! This is a great way to get to know more of the amazing families and volunteers that help run MVGS week to week and provide input into improving and supporting our league's snack bar. (And no softball skills required!)

 

Responsibilities will include picking up ice and other necessities before snack bar opens, getting items ready for purchase, hanging menus and sign-up sheets, ensuring the correct volunteers show up for their duties throughout the day and occasionally helping with weekly shopping. Each candidate will be trained on how to open the snack bar before the start of the fall ball season and will be entitled to one free meal a week. Background check will be required. If you're interested in finding out more, please email Jessica Perez at softballmom2288@gmail.com.

 

 

MVGS has lost an Icon

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Tony Schwartz. He passed away suddenly on June 21 after suffering a major heart attack. We are all in shock and praying for Tony's family. We especially want to extend our deepest condolences to his wife Stephanie and his kids Madison, Samantha and Brett.

Many of you knew Tony but if you didn't, you probably have heard his name. Tony was an amazing man and a softball mentor to so many! He was an MVGS coach and served on our board of directors for many years, his most recent years as our board President up until June 2017. His influence on our league will leave a mark that can't be replaced.

I'm sure many of you have hours of stories to share! Please keep the Schwartz family in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will pass along any details regarding a service as soon as we can.

We will miss you Tony!
