The BHAA family sadly mourns the loss of one our own, Mike Brady.

It's with tremendous sadness that I announce the sudden passing of Mike Brady. Coach Mike, as he's known to his girls, has been a long time BHAA supporter/coach/parent. Most recently, he's been the assistant coach of his daughter Haley's 18u Crush team.

I'm very grateful that he somehow made his way into my life and our lives.  He was more than just a coach to these girls. The girls loved his pep talks and benefitted from his wisdom.  
Not that we were looking for one, but we now have a special 'Angel in the outfield',  or in this case, our Angel coaching third base.   


My heart aches for everyone who knew Mike, especially for Haley and the rest of the Brady family.  Please keep the Brady's in your thoughts and prayers.

New for 2016!  A-Level (Advanced Teeball) We would like to form 2 to 4 teams of “advanced” teeball players, who will advance through learning the skills of baseball and softball faster than the other teams.  If your child has already played 1 year of tee ball, can pay attention to their coach, consistently field and catch balls thrown or hit to them, hit the ball without using a tee, and throw to their intended target, then you can check the box on your registration to place your child on one of the “A-Level” teams.

LOTTERY CALENDAR FUNDRAISER
BHAA’s main fundraiser this year will be Lottery Calendar tickets for the month of May.  To assure its success we are going to include the purchase of the 3 tickets in with the registration fee.  So registration will be increasing $30.  You will receive a minimum of three tickets to sell to recoup your cost.  The tickets will be tracked by the registered family.  If the ticket is sold the stub must be returned to BHAA.  If BHAA has the winning stub the winnings will be mailed out to the address on the stub.  If BHAA does not have the winning stub the winnings will be mailed to the registered family.  If the registered family sold the winning ticket they will be responsible for getting the winnings to the winner.  Every registered family will receive three tickets for a child and one additional ticket for each multiple child in the family.

Looking for a few good coaches!
BHAA is looking for coaches at T-Ball, Farm (7-8), Senior (11-12), 8U Softball, 10U Slow Pitch softball, 12U Softball, 15U Softball.  We are also looking for Directors for Concessions and Communications. Please remember we are a volunteer organization.  So I would like to be the first to thank you for your time.  For without volunteers we cannot offer this service to our youth.  Thank you!
Please contact Franklin Rouse if interested in any of these positions.

BHAA Backpacks

During our last general meeting an idea was proposed to offer customized backpacks.  You may have noticed some members of the 2013 Metro team carrying them around.  They are DE Marini backpacks, royal blue and black, with a large compartment that will fit all gear. There are 2 bat sleeves, a vented shoe compartment and an embroidery panel which will display “BHAA” and players last name.  This backpack will be offered at $50.  You will be able to pre-order it here. Once we have a group of 12 or more then the order will be placed.  These backpacks are an excellent way to show our spirit as we travel around to the different communities!
