T-ballers turn!
We got our first automatic payment from the ongoing can drive at Colonie Beverage! We figured becuse Tball technically falls under the new bats rules, we would purchase a few USA stamped bats to have on hand for the little guys trying out the sport for the first time! Keep bringing those cans and bottles to Colonie Bev on Central Ave (simply drop off, tell them it's for us and they do the rest)... we have lots of ideas for the next check!

SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR CCHS GRADUATING SENIORS

scholarship-clipart

South Colonie Youth Baseball and Girls Softball board voted unanimously to continue our Dollars for Scholars donation, but with the money earned from the AWESOME coach’s game last year, we bumped the donation UP to $1500 (previously $500)! This established two $750 scholarships that will benefit college-bound seniors at Colonie Central High School. Graduating seniors are encouraged to visit the South Colonie Dollars for Scholars website (https://southcolonie.dollarsforscholars.org) for further details.

To qualify, graduating seniors need to have played baseball or softball within our South Colonie (formerly West Albany) league, located at the West Albany Pocket Park, off Exchange Street in Colonie. The Dollars for Scholars Awards night is May 15, 2018.

Please share with anyone you think may be eligible!

Opening Day!! 4/21/2018

Opening Day is set for Saturday, April 21, 2018. Kicking off the day will be the annual players parade down Sand Creek and into the park. We will gather at the Hebrew Academy at 54 Sand Creek Rd at 9:30 am and the parade will begin promptly at 10:00 am. (*Current Plan)

The parade will lead into the opening day festivities and introductions on the Cal Ripken field (check out the map on our website). Following the ceremony will be plenty of games, great food, activities and auctions to keep everyone busy.

We also plan on having plenty of spirit wear apparel on hand to purchase and order. Make sure to check out our silent auctions too as we’re sure to have some terrific items to bid on.

We look forward to kicking off another successful season down at the SC Pocket Park. We’ll see you there!

Continuous Can Drive opened at Colonie Beverage

Tired of bottles and cans collecting in your house?
Hate putting them one at a time through a machine?
Wish you had an easy way to help others?

We are excited to announce the arrival of a continuous bottle drive to benefit all the ball players at South Colonie! 

In an effort to keep costs where ALL kids can play ball, our friends at Colonie Beverage have opened up an on-going account at their shop on 1823 Central Ave, where you can just pull up, drop off your returnable cans and bottles and drive away. Just tell them its for “South Colonie Youth Baseball” and they will take the cans, count them and credit our account. The league will then receive a check by mail… it’s THAT EASY to help!

Can DriveStore hours: Mon-Sat 9am-9pm, Sun 9am-6pm

 

Our Opening Day is scheduled for April 21, 2018!  The day’s activities will kick off with our annual parade and a few other fun surprises.  Save the date!
