RSVHC bids farewell

The final meeting of the Richfield Springs Varsity Homerun Club was (recently) held at the Tally-Ho Restaurant. The group was started by Bill Richards, Ron Green and Joel Sawicki in 2005. The main idea was to give the Varsity Baseball team a chance on taking a trip down south during spring break.

We ran into some problems, especially the first year, because we had a new coach. Not really knowing the kids, the new coach wasn’t really interested in taking the trip.

We continued to raise funds through donations until the school administration thought it would be better if we were part of the Sports Boosters club at the school.

In 2006, a check was given to then Athetic Director Bill Stevens in the amount of $1,863 earmarked for baseball. With the help of the present coach, Chuck McMann, a pitching machine was purchased for varsity baseball.

We realize that it would have been a great undertaking and would have had to raise a lot more money, so we decided to do the next best thing and that was to give the money to the school.

At this time the remaining four officers, Bill Richards, Ron Green, Joel Sawicki and John Sovocool, would like to thank the school administration, former and present coaches, and especially the Richfield Springs community and local businesses for donating to our cause.

We would also like to thank some of the parents that put in a lot of time, including Mr. and Mrs. Dave Southard, Randy Stone, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Marriott, and Mr. and Mrs. Gage.

A special thank you to Tony Angeluke from Ilion who donated $200. Tony is a Mohawk Valley umpire who thought what we were trying to do was a good thing for Richfield baseball.

Thanks to Beth at Tally Ho for your donation and fine food. As we are no longer an independent club, we encourage everyone to support the young people in our community in whatever way you can. They are our future.

Hope to see you at a baseball game!


RSVHC Officers,

Bill Richard

Ron Green
