baseball and glove Irish Youth Baseball It is that time of year again to register for spring baseball.  Once again, Irish teams will be forming in the Fairfield County Youth Baseball League out at the Tschopp Rd complex.  Last season we had a total of 5 Irish baseball teams (2 coach pitch, 2 minor, 1 major) comprised of students from St. Bernadette and St. Mary. Coach Pitch:  Ages 5-8 yrs (K – 2nd grade), Minor League:  Ages 9-10 yrs (3rd & 4th grade), Major League:  Ages 11-12 yrs (5th & 6th grade). Player Registration at Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Saturday, January 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and Sunday, February 1st from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.  I believe the registration cost is $90 per player, but they give you 3 discount cards to sell for $10 each to recover some of your cost.  When registering your child, please let them know that he/she is with the Irish and mark it on the registration sheet somewhere.  Once again we will need volunteers to help coach.  If you are interested in helping coach, please let me know by responding to the email address below. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Chad Gauerke, Fighting Irish Youth Baseball, Email: Cell:  614-562-3275,

If you’re unable to attend or miss a session, the responsibility is yours to contact me that following week so we can cover the material you missed. Also, deadlines for sacramental forms are very important, so please be sure to submit information on time or your son or daughter may not be able to receive the sacrament as scheduled. As a parent, you are the primary teacher of the faith to your child. Father Eilerman and I are happy to assist and support you in any way we can with this very essential charge in forming you child’s mind and heart with the teachings of our Lord and His Church.
