Crow River Valley League looking for Hall of Fame board members

On behalf of the Crow River Valley League, I am writing this open letter to all our fans, past players, current players, past officers and other baseball enthusiasts.

Since the fall of 2016 the league members and officers have begun the discussion of starting a Crow River Valley League Hall of Fame.  We have some initial ideas, about some things to do and incorporate.

However, the purpose of this letter is to find out what you fans, past players, former officers and baseball enthusiasts have to say.

The league is looking for people interested in being a part of the inaugural board to get this thing off the ground and going.  We are looking for motivated individuals interested in being included in this new venture for our league.

If this is something that you would be interested in being involved with please contact your local teams Manager or the CRVL Sec/Treas Jason Kuerschner at 612-598-4820 or via email at colohollander10@yahoo.com.

We are looking to put together a standalone committee/board by the fall of 2017, and have our first induction class ready by no earlier than the 2019 season.

We have a lot to do between now and then, but with your support and ideas we feel that this can be a great way to showcase the history of the Crow River Valley League.

Thank you for your interest in this league venture.  Please don’t wait for someone to ask you to be a part of this committee, contact your team’s manager or the Sec/Treas today and offer your talents to this committee.

Sincerely,

Jason A. Kuerschner

CRVL Sec/Treas

Ron Baumann Memorial Baseball Clinic a big success

The Fourth Annual Ron Baumann Memorial Baseball Clinic took place on Sunday, May 21 from 2-5 PM at Barrett Field in Winsted. Despite the cooler temperatures the clinic hit an all time high with 72 players attending. This year we had players from Winsted, Howard Lake, Watertown, Lester Prairie, Maple Lake and Annandale. The clinic was separated into 2 different ages groups with Session 1 being for boys and girls ages 6-9 and session 2 for players ages 10-12. The clinic covered pitching/throwing, hitting, infield work and outfield footwork and the older group ended their session with a competitive but FUN game.

 The clinic is held in honor of Ron Baumann, who had a  passion for playing both baseball and softball. When his  playing days came to an end, he stayed involved in the  game by becoming an umpire and umpired numerous,  high school, summer league games and many MSF and  ASA state tournaments. Ron passed away in June 2013  after a courageous battle with Leukemia. He passed his  passion and love for the game on to his four boys and in  his honor this clinic was established as a way to give back  to the community and honor his love for the game.DSCN3446
 The clinic would not be possible without the help of the  wonderful coaches that assisted with the different stations:  Caleb Marconett, Nathan Granum, Derek Gagner, Ken  Tufte, Tim Baumann, Nate Baumann, Nicole Baumann,  and Corbyn Stender. Each player who participated in the  clinic received a T-shirt, cookie, and bottle of water. We  would also like to thank our sponsors, B & B Tire and Auto  for their donation of the bottled water, Twisted Piston  for doing a great job on the shirts. B’s on the River,  Jacque B’s and Rivers Edge Golf Course for there donation as well. A big thank you to Shirley Baumann, Janessa Baumann for helping with the cookies, Lisa Baumann helping hand out and take shirt sizes, and Hailey and Brooke Baumann for taking several clinic pictures.
