Hello Everyone!

My son has been playing baseball for an awesome little league in Hayward California, a small city in San Francisco Bay Area. Our city has been experiencing lack of funding for education and sport activities for our children. Frankly, I don’t remember the last time my kids’ school sponsored a field trip for them. And we’ve been here for 14 years. It’s quite sad, but as parents we continue to thrive and we must find ways to keep our children off the street from getting in trouble with drugs and crime. What better way to do it then to keep them in sports?

This Saturday, May 31, 2014 would be the closing ceremony for my son's little league. But the league were unable to pull it off due to low funds. And last week someone broke into the clubhouse/snack bar (not once, but twice) and stole the league's petty cash and other items. Before that incident, the league had non-working restrooms which caused a closure of the Snack Bar for a week or so... 

However, Treeview Little League is facing a bigger problem then those incidents... They are facing a possible of “no return” next season because of lack of funding. My kid, Larsen, whose dream is to become the next Babe Ruth had asked me if I could do something to save his league. So I am starting this campaign to raise money to save Treeview Little League.

If you could spare $20, $10, $5, or even coffee change, the league could really use it!

What the money will be used for?

Opening Day/Closing Day Celebration (for 2014-2015 season - we did not have either ones for 2014 season.) $2,000

Trophies (This year, parents took care of the cost for trophies.) $2,000

Fields improvement. (Don't you think we need it?) $2,000

Clubhouse/Snack Bar improvement! (We need this one really bad.) We want to keep the Snack Bar open every Saturday next season - this could be our cash flow for the league going on forward!) $2,250

Sign up 10 players for free on a need basis the 2014-2015 season. (Some kids in the area want to play ball, but unfortunately their parents couldn't afford it. So yeah, we want to give them that opportunity to play BALL!) $1,500

Utilities (PGE - $200 a month, Garbage $150 a month): $4,000

Charter Cost: $1,000

Promotional Materials Cost: $500

Total Requested: $15,500

Please, please help save my son’s little league…  Thank you in advance for all donations.

Funding is always a challenge while operating a non-profit organization…

Since 1961, volunteers have operated the Treeview Little League. This generous group consists of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and grandparents. They have responsibilities such as school, work, and family – but still take the time to help out and make our little league possible.

We are very grateful for our volunteers, which make up the board; snack concession; umpires; scorekeepers; and the caretakers for our fields.

Meet some of our volunteers at the Snack Concession…

Maybe it might be a good idea for the people to get together and discuss maybe an event or fun and games at the ball park to help Treeview raise money.. Maybe some home run derby, BBQ, face painting, games and more.. And all the money made could go toward Treeview... This could be a yearly thing..

Perhaps better security...or better yet, don't leave money or items of value at the snack bar. Good luck. All my kids played there.

It's a sad thing to see all the Hayward little leagues suffer from lack of kids,I've seen Hayward Cottennental,Hayward American,La Vista fold I think Hayward leagues should consolidate into one or two leagues to have quality and competitive leagues. There are year round soccer and basketball that young kids now play along with travel leagues to compete with District 45 should consider boundary reconstruction to save baseball in Hayward.

This is a league my grandfather was involved in. He loved baseball. My father played, brother, cousins and now my son. I am, personally, fighting to keep the memory alive.

My 100.00 donation will be in increments,first installment 25.00.This is because my Son-In-Law Sam Caddis had called me out for the ice challenge,so since I really didn't have anybody to help me with that figured the least I could was donate something.I still think a big BBQ,BAKE SALE,AND A CAR WASH OR MUTIPLES OF ANY OF THEM COULDN'T HURT...Just a thought...
