SCVL hoping to get more representation in WBA
PRESCOTT - The St. Croix Valley League wants more and younger voices on the board of the Wisconsin Baseball Association.
The SCVL held its annual winter meeting back on Jan. 30 at the Pilot House in Prescott. River Falls manager Josh Eidem and Prescott's Brady Randolph said they would be willing to run for and serve on the WBA's board of directors in the wake of the retirement of Mark Helmer, who had represented the league on the board for many years.
"We need to have to have someone from the league on the board and represent this area of the state," Randolph said during the meeting. "We need someone to be there when it comes to seeding the state tournament and also to help move the association in a new direction."
There was consensus sentiment, especially given the youthful make-up of many of the managers and team officials within the SCVL that the WBA needed to get into the 21st Century.
"The (association) should have a functioning website and provide information like team rosters, scores, statistics," Eidem said. "We should have access to that information for better seeding in the tournament to be able to promote what we do, which is amateur baseball."
