OTTAWA, ON – Baseball Canada is now accepting nominations from all walks of life for the Rally Cap Player of the Week.
During the 2008 baseball season, Baseball Canada will recognize the achievements and improvements of our young baseball players enrolled in the Rally Cap Program. From now until August 2nd, Baseball Canada will select one player per province per week to share with the country their exploits.
“The Rally cap Player of the Week is a way to show how the kids are improving,” says André Lachance, Manager of Baseball Operations. “The goal is not performance, but getting the fundamental skills of baseball. We hope this will raise interest among the young players as well as get catch the curiosity of the communities who do not have the Rally Cap program in their area.”
Any parent, coach, administrator, fan or friend can nominate a young player each week. In order to do so, simply fill the nomination form making sure you include the player's picture in their Rally Cap. The nomination form can be found on the home page of the website simply by clicking on the Rally Cap Player of the Week logo.
At the end of the season, Baseball Canada will draw at random from all the Player of the Week nominees it receives for a trip for two to Toronto which includes transportation, one night hotel accommodations, two tickets for two Blue Jays games and two official Baseball Canada hats.
The purpose of Rally Cap is to create an environment in which children and adults can have fun with baseball; teach baseball skills, rules and strategy to our players; model and teach competitiveness with an emphasis on good sportsmanship and promote increased self esteem among Rally Cap children and adults.
Do not wait any longer. Nominate a youngster for the Rally Cap Player of the Week today!
