Welcome to River Pirates Baseball - A Message from our Executive Board

There have been a few landmark days getting to where we are today. On December 19 our first e-mail went out calling for interest and for volunteers. January 3 we held our first volunteer meeting.  January 29 we held our first AGM.  Today, February 1, we opened our first registration.  There will be many more firsts to come this year, but perhaps this is a good time to stop, look around, and acknowledge a few of those that have helped us get to where we are:
  • The South Corman Park Community Association, for working with us on a potential playing space for our Rally Cap program,
  • Brian Hubbard, President of the SaskFive Giants,
  • Jesse Korte, Executive Director of Baseball Saskatoon and the rest of the Board at Baseball Saskatoon,
  • Mike Ramage, Executive Director of Baseball Saskatchewan,
  • Shawn Klisowski, Zone 5 Coordinator of Baseball Saskatchewan,
  • Heather Friday for building our website, expression of interest and registration setup (this would not have happened without your help), 
  • Russ Sarauer, former member of the Saskatoon Braves Executive Board for your ongoing assistance, enthusiasm and guidance,
  • Kyle Schmidt, founding member and President of Globe BMX in Saskatoon for showing us how to run a Board and start an organization from the ground up,
  • John and Agnes DeJong of Brooks, Alberta, for generously being our very first sponsor with your generous donation!, and
  • the rest of our sponsors for being part of establishing our foundation.

I also want to thank our newly established Executive Board, especially our co-founder and Vice President, Darren Friesen.  The work that has gone into building this foundation is no small feat, so to you I say, congratulations.

Lastly, our largest thank you, without doubt goes to Tyson Almasi, President of the Saskatoon Braves.  Without Tyson's encouragement, guidance and love for baseball, the River Pirates would not exist today.  Tyson supported our efforts from the beginning, fielding calls and text messages, attending meetings and offering insights that made start up possible.  Tyson, the River Pirates tip our caps to you and thank you greatly.

To all of our registrants, parents, coaches and other volunteers, I want to welcome you to the inaugural year of River Pirates Baseball.  I am excited to have you along as we continue to build our foundation outward and provide baseball to our communities and RM's for years to come.

How can you not be romantic about baseball?  The River Pirates are here.  Let's play ball.
