Here is our 5th installment of MEET THE BV BOARD: "I grew up not knowing much about baseball. I knew how the game generally was played from kids in my neighborhood -- hit the ball, run towards first and not third, names of positions. That sort of thing. When I met my now-husband, I knew that baseball would be a big part of my and our family's lives. BV has played a H U G E part. I couldn't be more grateful to BV, the community it has fostered, and the development it has brought to my family.
My son started playing in the league when he was four years old, during a Fall Ball season. I've seen him develop physically, mentally, and socially. The confidence he's gained from playing baseball with BV, the fundamentals of trying hard and working to master a skill, and the importance of being a good team player are things that he carries with him off the field and into his academics and non-baseball life. My daughter started playing in BV as soon as she was of age because of the fun she had on the sidelines and saw her brother having on the field. She too has greatly benefited from learning this game and learning how to be a part of a team.
We now have a strong baseball family. Folks that we celebrate life milestones; friends that we share life's ups and downs; people that we see multiple times a week, be it carpooling, coaching, practicing, grabbing a bite, or just generally sharing our love of the game and this league. Joining the BV Board seemed like the best way to give back to the community that has given us so much. I want every BV family to have the opportunity to grow and benefit as mine has.
You will often find me at the Snack Shack, trying to find ways to fundraise for the league while serving our BV community cold drinks and delicious treats. Please swing by and say, 'Hello!'"

😂😂 stay safe everyone! Traffic lights will also be shut off so please be cautious at all intersections !The Pleasanton Police Department has put together a helpful (and hilarious) list of tips to help Californians get through the planned PG&E power shutdown, take a moment to read some of them below!
- - -
PG&E is anticipating widespread, strong and dry winds this week. Starting Wednesday, they are considering turning off power for safety to parts of California, including the Bay Area. So here are a few things you can do to help get through a power shutdown:
• If you come home and everything is dark and nothing works, then yes, you are experiencing a power shutdown. Remain calm. Use your cell phone light to search frantically for the one flashlight you think you have in the house. It will be dead of course. Search for batteries. You will need four but only find three.
• Wish you had charged your cell phone. Plug your phone into the charger but then say to yourself, “duh the power is out.”
• Charge up those portable phone chargers tonight. However, keep in mind, should your teen’s phone run out of battery it could be a good thing. Watching them go through Tik-Tok or Instagram withdrawals could be good entertainment. Heck, it could even put them dangerously close to having to read a book by flashlight or doing something creative.
• Please do not call 911 and ask when the power will come back on. Our dispatchers are very good but they cannot see into the future. They will tell you they do not know and then disconnect so they can answer the other hundred calls from people asking about the power being out.
• Keep your freezer and refrigerator doors closed to keep food from spoiling. If you have teenagers this may be difficult so speak loudly but slowly to them so they understand. You may need to hang a sign on the doors as well. Use big letters.
• Use food supplies that do not require refrigeration. We think potato chips, Twinkies, Oreos, and peanut butter might be a good start! Okay, maybe throw an apple or an avocado in there, too.
• You will need a plan to keep medicines refrigerated or power-dependent medical devices working.
• PG&E suggests you turn off or disconnect appliances, equipment or electronics. Power may return with momentary “surges” or “spikes” that may cause damage.
• DO NOT use generators, camp stoves, or charcoal grills indoors. Carbon monoxide fumes can be deadly. Moreover, never use a gas stove top or oven to heat your home. Do what your mom used to tell you to do: Put on a sweater.
• Check on your neighbors. Even the one whose dog barks all night. And the other one who always parks in front of your house.
