SYA Little League Day at the Potomac Nationals

SYA Little League Day with the Potomac Nationals is scheduled for Sunday, April 27, 1:05pm against the Lynchburg Hillcats, a farm team of the Atlanta Braves. This has been a great event for both the P-Nats and SYA Little League in recent years.  Tickets are only $4 each, kids are allowed on the field pre-game, and there are fun games and recognition throughout the day.  In addition, four official SYA Tee-Ball and Coach Pitch games are played on the field after the P-Nats game is completed.

Rumor is Doug Fister of the Washington Nationals will be making a rehab start in this game!

Note: each player in these games will receive three tickets each, free of charge, for the P-Nats game.  More on this from Dean Canestra, TB/CP commissioner as the date gets closer. The teams selected to play that day are:

  • CP Volcanoes (Felmey)
  • CP Bulls (Mallick)
  • CP Storm (Bevilaqua)
  • CP Knights (Harkins)
  • TB Thunder (Milburn)
  • TB RiverDogs (Egan)
  • TB Scrappers (Birnbaum)
  • TB RedWings (DiMattina)

Parking - Cub Run and All Fields

While we all recognize that parking at Cub Run can be tough to come by at times, we want to make sure that all our players and their families are safe when leaving their cars and making their way to the fields. It has come to our attention that there have been some number of incidents where cars are being parked illegally, often ignoring posted signs, making crossing streets/intersections very dangerous. This includes parking illegally in the school parking lots. Please heed all signage and consider the players, families, and the local residents in your choice for parking as there is always the school lot (other side of the building) - which is often less than half full. We expect the police to be patrolling this area more frequently because of complaints. Here is a general summary of Fairfax County parking regulations: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fcdot/parking_restrictions.htm. Please heed this warning as well as street posting. All these regulations apply to all our fields.
