John Lesch volunteered for over 20 years in the CYA LL family. His passion was baseball - through and through. He started as a coach to his kids and continued to coach both Little League and Babe Ruth long after his kids were out of the leagues. He joined the CYA Little League Board of Directors where he served for many years in a variety of roles, most notably Quartermaster or Equipment Manager.
John believed in giving kids a chance, regardless of their abilities, on the baseball field. He believed that the lessons you learned on the field were lessons for life: be a team player, do your best, honor your commitments, practice, see the game through, dress for success, and the list goes on.
Sadly, John passed away in May 2019 after a battle with cancer. The Baseball for a Better Life Fund has been established in his memory to provide additional opportunities to enhance the Little League experience for CYA's youth.
Congratulations to our long time UIC Tom Defranco for being appointed by the Little League Southeast Region as a volunteer umpire for the 2022 Southeast Regionals in Warner Robins Georgia.
As many of you know, Tom has volunteered countless hours behind the plate umpiring Little League games in house, All-Star tournaments and State tournaments. In addition, Tom ran the CYA LL umpiring program and training for years. His selection to the regional final is a tribute to this volunteer time and hard work on and off the diamond to further better the game of little league baseball.
Congratulations Tom! Thank you for all your hard work
CYA Little League held its annual membership meeting on November 10th and by acclamation appointed a new board of directors. The board then met on November 15th and elected officers to their positions for the 2022 season.
Please join us in thanking the outgoing members of the board who have volunteered countless hours over the years to the CYA baseball community - Rob Fitzhugh, Tom DeFranco, Caroline Kelley and Shawn Cochran.
