An open letter to the City of Somerville
On behalf of Somerville Little League baseball players, coaches, and parents, the Board of Directors would like to offer a heartfelt thank you for all the support and assistance you provided us this season. With the wettest spring in anyone’s recent memory, the work by the Department of Public Works and the Recreation Department every day to get the fields playable was without precedent. A special mention should go to DPW Commissioner Stan Koty and Superintendent Steve Quinn for their tireless efforts to keep the kids playing and the games going. In addition, Recreation Director James Halloran also needs to be commended for providing valuable help from his department; the kids and we will not forget your efforts, Jim. When our aging Concession Stand appliances expired, George Scarpelli and Mike Bowler provided same day replacement!
Lastly, we are fortunate to have a Mayor like Joe Curtatone, (a dedicated coach himself) who has been more than a partner in our goal to bring competitive baseball back to Somerville. His leadership and commitment to Sports & Recreation makes our job that much easier.
Thank you again for truly making this a rewarding and memorable season for us all!
