Colorado Springs Little League

Message from the President

Welcome to the 2021 season of Colorado Springs Little League! With the presidency changing over this past fall, I wanted to provide you with a little background on myself, discuss some things to expect, and my philosophy.

My family and I arrived here in Colorado Springs in 2014 via the military. My wife (Jaime) and I both currently serve in the Air Force Reserves in a full-time capacity. We have 4 kids: Nolan (12), Terry (8), Olivia (4), and Bruce III (3). They will all be playing CSLL this season! So you will be able to catch me at one of the fields on any given night. I've been involved in the league since 2015 first as a Volunteer Umpire, then Coach, then Coach Coordinator, and finally as Vice President of Baseball. I ran for President this past fall because of the passion I have for baseball/softball, the development of kids in the sport, and the desire to lead this community. The values I have learned in the military have guided me both as a coach and leader of this league.

With our city, county, and state still under tight COVID restrictions, it is hard to think about what a Little League season will look like right now. With that being said we are pressing forward in the hopes of starting on time. We showed this past fall that our COVID protocol was effective and allowed us to operate to the maximum extent allowed. We as a league are prepared to take on whatever this coming season may bring.

Finally, I would like to discuss my philosophy and expectations. These are my seven absolutes. They may not all apply to you as parents, but these are the same points that have been briefed to the Board Members and will also be briefed to all Volunteers and Coaches.

1- It has to be about the kids
2- Safety & Security of everyone in our league
3- Fiscal responsibility
4- Teach the kids how to play the game the right way
5- Be a positive impact on the kids
6- Continued development of partnerships in the community
7- Do everything with class

As parents, I need you to focus on #1, #5, and #7. These three points definitely have some overlap, but it is important that you understand the expectation. This experience you are registering your child(ren) for has to be about them. The moment that we stray from this we fail. The biggest role of the parent in Little League is to be a positive source of encouragement. This leads to #5. We have to have a positive impact on the kids. Shouting at coaches, arguing with umpires, and just being downright negative is unacceptable. And finally, #7 applies to everyone in this entire league: we will act with the highest level of class at all times and exhibit outstanding behavior. The players, parents, and coaches will display the utmost respect for one another to include umpires and opposing teams. If you have questions about my philosophy and expectations, I encourage you to reach out to me directly.

I look forward to a fun-filled season of baseball and softball in 2021. Hope to see you out there!

Bruce Pascucci
President, CSLL
