Greetings Foster City Little League Community!
PRESIDENT’S WELCOME MESSAGE
Hello everyone! My name is Jason Louie, and I am the incoming President of FCLL for the 2020-2021 year. I am really happy and excited to be your president! I have lived in Foster City for 18 years, nine of which were spent being involved in FCLL (parent, sponsor, coach, volunteer). Over those nine years, I became a baseball nut! Although I no longer have any children playing in FCLL, I have a dream to return FCLL to its former glory (1970s) of being “Baseball Mecca.” It is my passion to make Foster City a “baseball town” where families linger around the baseball field for hours after the game in neighborly fellowship. I very much look forward to your help and support in making my, excuse me, “our” dream come true. So come on out, get involved, and volunteer! No experience needed, just a passion for fresh air, helping kids, and building up our town around the great sport of baseball. All of our contact info is on the FCLL website.
The Levee construction starts ASAP. FCLL will NOT lose any field usage due to the project, but Sea Cloud Park traffic and parking will be impaired for the next few years. Specifically, we will lose two of the three parking lots at Sea Cloud, as well as, parking all along the South side of Sea Cloud Drive. So in the upcoming months, please be sure to leave a little early to familiarize yourselves with the new restricted parking and traffic rules. I know this may be a little frustrating, but it is for all our benefit and, in Foster City, we always teach our baseball players to be kind and considerate of others. A map can be found here. Levee project details can be found here on the Foster City website.
UPDATE ON CRIMINAL CASE AND REPLACEMENT OF LOST FUNDS
On October 7, the FCLL board received an update on the criminal case regarding the embezzlement of league funds. A criminal conviction has been secured and progress is being made toward recovery of our lost funds. FCLL has received an initial restitution payment in the amount of $30,000 and will be working with the court system to get the remaining amount that is still outstanding. These monies were, and will be used as they were intended, to help offset the city's field costs for the B1 turf improvement project that was completed in 2019. Any questions about the case itself should be made to the San Mateo District Attorney's office.
