Opening Day Jamboree Info
 
In years past, as part of our Opening Day Jamboree festivities, NGBSA has chosen to support a member/family who has been faced with some pretty challenging circumstances in life.  We have been able to support families dealing with loss of income, families dealing with cancer and other serious medical conditions, and families dealing with the loss of a loved one.  The family we have chosen to support this year is the Almas family who lost their father/husband just last year and here is their story:

Our family is truly honored that the NGBSA and George Pierce Park has selected us to be recognized at this year’s jamboree. Our affiliation with the league began in 2008 when our oldest son, Zachary began his baseball career. His younger brothers, Justin and Jason soon followed. Like most families who become “baseball people,” George Pierce Park became our second home and the friends we made along the way became our second family. Many cold nights found our boys eating a quick dinner on the bleachers before batting practice or doing homework in between games. But more importantly, my husband, Adam became a coach and suddenly his concern and advice was not directed to just his sons, but to all his team members. His dedication to coaching strengthened our connection to the other families involved in this great sport, and we expanded our involvement with the organization to GGBL.  It was the relationship with other George Pierce families that helped my boys and I get through the untimely loss of my husband, Adam, last April.  He died of a heart attack at the young age of 44. But, because of baseball, our family had something to look forward to, preoccupy our time, and keep us busy during a sad new reality. We also had the unwavering support of the other families we had met along the way – those that we had played with or Adam had coached, or those who simply just knew what we were struggling with. Thank you again for honoring Adam’s memory and helping my boys to remember what a wonderful man, coach, and father that he was.
