Trophy Day 2014
 
Wow! What an amazing season! when I set out to start this challenger league, I didn't know what to expect.  I had a vision of how I wanted things, but because it was all so new to me, I just worked from my heart and hoped for the best.
 

 
Vincent Firsching, the President of the Bronxchester Little League kicked off our trophy day ceremony with a sweet speech about our first season. 
 

 
How grateful I am to him and the other amazing Board members that allowed me to come in and make my dream of a baseball program for children with Autism come true.  Especially my good friend Carlos Polanco who believed in me and my dream.  He was detrimental to the process. He introduced the idea to the board and pitched my idea to them. 
 

 
The players were so excited and proud of their trophies.  The smile on their faces was the biggest trophy for me!  Some may not agree with the concept of a trophy for just showing up and trying.  But for me Trying was the biggest accomplishment.  Especially when it is trying from little people who are set in their ways and have a hard time adjusting to change.  There was so much progress made by both the children and their parents. 
 


 
Because of the amazing job that everyone did this season.  We thought it would be a great idea to celebrate!  Thank you to Fairway Markets for catering our event! They supplied us with water and yummy sandwiches garnished with deliciously sweet gummy bears and worms. Their chicken nuggets and mac and cheese was pretty awesome too!
 

 
 
I searched for some cool activities for the kids to engage in while they hung out! And what a better place to find them then Oriental Trading.  They had so many cute baseball themed activities.  The kids loved trying their hand with this Baseball Bean Bag Toss Game.  Set up was VERY easy.  This seven piece set comes with the play board, stick and six vinyl balls.  It was fun for all age groups, both big and small!

 Check out these awesome Baseball Personalized Pencils!  Every player was able to receive one! It went great with the other cool goodies we got for them.
