2014 "The Jacket" Award
    A season should never be judged solely on the record of the team; success comes from the growth a team achieves from start to finish. The volunteers of our organization made each and every team a success this year. While we cannot list every volunteer coach parent and friend that helped accomplish this feat, we can take time to recognize those among us who stood out this past year. We have revived an award, called "The Jacket” that dates back over 30 years in our organization. The Jacket recognizes an outstanding volunteer from our league who went above and beyond in their support and dedication to the North Ridgeville Baseball League. It is now time that we begin by accepting nominations for this year’s award.
    Nominations will be accepted primarily by online form submission. You may complete a form by clicking HERE. You may also send an email to webmaster@nrhotstove.com with your nomination. Nominations must include: Nominee’s first and last name, team(s) affiliated with, a brief statement on why they are being nominated, your name (optional but would only be used to let that nominee know who thought enough to nominate them!) The nomination period is from now until midnight on August 31, 2014. After the close of nominations, an independent review board will review all nominations and select a winner (or winners, if need be.) All nominees will be recognized and the winners will be awarded "The Jacket” at the September coaches meeting.

One Call Now Information
We are proud to announce that we will once again be using the One Call Now service for additional means of communication!
Head Coaches were supplied with phone lists which the parents will be asked to verify and prioritize their phone numbers.
Once these are returned, the team phone roster will be added.
All calls will show 440.723.4378 as the origin (which is the league phone number)
Not only will the League be able to mass-call, but each team will have their own account to use! If you haven't verified your number with your coach, bug them!

In addition, the service has the ability to send text messages. 
In order to accept text messages, you will need to text the word ALERT to 22300 from each cell phone you wish to receive texts from. This will opt your cell phone in. 

Questions? Contact Pat Anderson or call 216.225.8177
