Logan Huttunen currently plays in Majors on the Stong's Grocers team. He and his family have been part of the Dunbar Little League family since Blastball. Three years ago, Logan was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. He was only 8 years old at the time. Logan has struggled with his health through several baseball seasons, but has always returned the next season to play baseball...his favourite sport. This year Logan is the Honorary Chair for the Gutsy Walk for Crohns and Colitis here in Vancouver (June 3, 2018). As part of our support for Logan, we'd like the rest of DLL to hear about his fundraising efforts and visit his Fundraising Page. We are also including Logan's speech about Ulcerative Colitis and how it has affected his life. Please watch the video to educate yourself on Logan's diagnosis. Great job, Logan! You're an inspiration for the rest of the DLL family!

We're excited to begin another great season at Dunbar Little League! This Saturday, April 14, 2018, is the official kickoff for our 2018 season. Opening Day takes place at West Memorial Park (33rd and Dunbar). We expect over 1000 people at the park, so please WALK TO THE PARK and LEAVE THE DOGS AT HOME. Teams gather in full uniform outside the Majors field fence, several volunteer “herders” will help coordinate the teams running onto the field. There will be signs where teams will line up, so look for your team. Parents should leave their player with their team and move away from the staging area and find a spot to watch the opening ceremony. For families new to baseball, this is an exciting event. We start by introducing each team and players run onto the field led by their coaches and are welcomed by cheers from the crowd. Opening ceremonies will proceed rain or shine. Fingers crossed it gets better as we approach the weekend.

BASEBALL SEASON’S ALMOST HERE!!Hello Dunbar Little League Families! As Spring Break is upon us now that means Opening Day is just around the corner. It’s at this time of the year that the e-mails reminding you that every parent of a Little League child must perform a volunteer function start. Well, this is the first of the season!!! Every DLL position – President, Board Member, Coordinator, Coach, Concession, and Volunteer Day worker - are equally important… The only way the season works is if we all do our part to help out! Dunbar Baseball is the best community league in Canada because all we have to do is ask and people show up, because you care. To that end, please remember that we need as many people as possible to attend the Pre-Season field clean-up Volunteer Day April 7, 2018. Come out to the fields and help us get them ready for our 61st season. Further details are: Dunbar Baseball Field Work Day When: Saturday, April 7, 2018 Time: 9:00am Where: All Majors, Minor A and T-Ball Parents, please sign-in at the Memorial Field (33rd and Dunbar) at the volunteer table at concession. Coffee and donuts provided to all happy volunteers! All Minor B Parents, please come directly to the Balaclava Park (31st and Balaclava) ball field. Bring: A shovel or rake and the expectation to have fun! IMPORTANT: please label any tools that you bring to the park to ensure that they are easy for you to locate when the work day is completed. Each year we are left with a dozen or so tools that people forget! Have a safe and fun Spring Break, see you at the ballpark soon. Hareesh Sara DLL President
