PLEASE SUPPORT AN MTBA FAMILY IN NEED

May 2016

An MTBA family needs our help...  Michael Manning is a player in the MTBA and very sadly his father Kevin has been stricken with cancer.  Kevin’s final days are upon him, and his wife Cathy has taken an extended leave of absence from teaching to spend what little time Kevin has left to be at home with him.  Hospice has started, the medical bills are mounting, and the family has begun the heartbreaking process of planning Kevin's final expenses.  While there is certainly no pressure to donate, the MTBA asks our families to open their hearts to the Mannings by making a donation to a Go Fund Me page set up to assist the family; please help out in any way you can:

http://www.gofundme.com/24wnbwfa

Cathy and Kevin were blessed to have recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary as well as Michael's 14th birthday (on the same day).  Unfortunately they will not be blessed with any more milestones to celebrate together.  We ask you all keep Kevin, Cathy and Michael in your prayers and hope that Kevin’s journey home will be as peaceful and kind as he is, and that his family will always feel his love.

 

Thank You,

The MTBA

[June 7, 2016 -- it is with heavy hearts that we must inform everyone that Kevin Manning passed away; viewing will be on Friday, June 10 at Lester Funeral Home in Jamesburg]

MTHS Baseball

The Monroe Township Baseball Association supports the Monroe Township HS Baseball Program

Required Background Checks for Volunteers

All on-field volunteers are required to complete a background check per Babe Ruth League rules.  Please visit our Health and Safety page for more information and for details on how to submit the necessary info for the check if you plan to volunteer on the field.  Note that this is separate from the Rutgers SAFETY certification which is also required to work on the field with the children.

Rec and travel managers need to ensure that anyone they allow to coach or otherwise be on the field or in the dugout with the kids has met both of these requirements; if anyone does not meet either requirement then they cannot be allowed to help on the field.

Support for Mikey Nichols

Please continue to support the recovery efforts of MTHS senior Mikey Nichols; Mikey is a former player and umpire in the MTBA that suffered a very serious injury playing for the Monroe Twp HS Hockey Team on January 4th, 2014.

To make a donation, see upcoming events, or get other information please visit:  http://www.mikeystrong23.org and https://www.facebook.com/prayformikey23
