Dear Chief Player and Parents

On behalf of our entire organization we would like to thank all of you for being a member of our program for the 2011 summer baseball season. We appreciate your commitment and dedication to the program.

Tryouts for the 2012 summer Chiefs team will be the weekend of August 27-28. Times T.B.D. Please inform any players who might be interested.

We have 2 final events scheduled for this summer. Our current Chiefs team vs. our alumni team and the Joe Fletcher Memorial Scholarship / Hammond Chiefs Golf Outing.

Annual Alumni Game Friday, August 5th at 7:00 P.M. Our alumni game and post game cookout will take place on this Friday, August 5th at Riverside Park. The alumni game will be for players of this years Chiefs team against a Chief alumni team. The game will take place at 7:00 p.m. and will also include a homerun derby prior to the start of the game. Following the game we will have a cookout for all current players and for all of our alumni players. The cookout will take place immediately following the game. We will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages for the cookout. We are asking that our current team member families provide salads, chips, deserts and any other food items that would be appropriate for the cookout. Items can be brought and stored in the concession stand on the night of the alumni game. Please help us out with this event as we end our season for current players and welcome back former players. We look forward to you attending on Friday, August 5th.

Joe Fletcher Memorial Scholarship / Hammond Chiefs Golf Outing The annual Joe Fletcher Memorial Golf Outing will take place on this Saturday, August 6th at the Lansing Country Club with a shotgun start beginning at 12 noon. This years golf outing will donate at least 1/3 of the profits toward our Chiefs and Seminoles program. The golf outing is $50. An after golf dinner will also be held which will include food and beverages. The cost for that is $20. Enclosed is the flier for both events and you may respond to the contact person on the flier for each event if you can participate. Please try and support this event as it is supporting our program. You must respond by Friday, August 5th for the golf outing and the after golf dinner. Again thanks to all of our players and parents for being a part of our program for the 2011 summer season. We hope to see you during the alumni game and also hope that you can participate in the golf outing.

Thanks for a great summer!
