2014 Work Bond Refunds

As detailed on the work bond form, refund checks will be issued in person at the September (9th) and October (14th) monthly general membership meetings to those that bring in the completed form and have met the outlined requirements for receiving the refund.  There will also be at least one (and likely two) Saturday morning dates in September/October where you may bring the completed form to JMP to receive the refund; those dates are still to be determined and will be advertised when finalized*.  DO NOT mail in or leave your form at the rec center; we will not mail refunds!  As with last year, we will again allow the work bond to be rolled over to next year for those that wish to do so; however, you must still bring the completed work bond form in person on one of the dates above to have us confirm and record it as a roll-over.  For those that roll it over, we will have a JMP fall clean-up day in late fall (probably in November) to secure the park for the winter; if you’ve rolled your work bond over to 2015 and help on the fall clean-up day you may count those hours towards your 2015 work bond requirement (new forms for recording 2015 hours will be made available by that date).

* the Saturday dates at JMP will be September 20th (9:30 - 10:30 AM) and October 18th (time TBD)

Please email any questions regarding work bonds to monroebaseball@gmail.com

Congratulations Monroe 10U -- NNJ State Champions!
Next up: Cal Ripken Mid-Atlantic Regionals

The Monroe 10U Purple travel team took the Cal Ripken Northern NJ State crown on July 18th, and traveled to Clifton Park, NY to play in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament from July 24-28.  Please use the link below to see the tournament results (PDF file).

2014 10U MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL TOURNAMENT

UPDATE:  Monroe did everyone proud by advancing all the way to the semi-finals before being eliminated by Southern NJ champs Marlton in a close 3-1 game (Marlton went on to win the championship).  Everyone on the team contributed throughout the tournament, with outstanding pitching and defense as indicated by only allowing 11 runs total in the 4 pool play games (the lowest out of all 10 teams).  GREAT JOB, BOYS!!!

Our own Tywone Malone won the HR Derby that was held after the completion of pool play; please click here to view a report on that by the local community newspaper.

Todd Frazier relayed a video message (via Jared Jiminez) to the team prior to the start of the tournament; click here to view it on the 10U team's web site.
