Little League has long been a family affair. I played baseball first with Urbandale Little League and then with Johnston Little League in Iowa from the ages 8 to 15. My sister played softball, my brothers played baseball, my dad coached, and for three years my mom served as president. Perhaps the best summer of my life was spent at Mickey Owen Baseball School in Missouri, where at 16 I spent the entire summer playing baseball 8 hours a day. In high school I was a three-year starter at second base and was named Second Team All District my senior year. I returned to Little League in college to umpire for Palo Alto Little League in California. In 2010 I began coaching my son's Tee Ball team with Powell Little League. Since then I have volunteered with Powell and Southeast Portland Little Leagues as a manager in the Tee Ball, Farm, Minor, Major, and Intermediate (50/70) baseball divisions, Baseball and Softball Player Agent, Umpire-in-Chief, and Coaches Coordinator. I'm excited to continue volunteering with Southeast Portland Little League.

I grew up playing Little League baseball here in Portland for Rose City Little League starting at age 8. It seemed like everyone I knew played Little League in my neighborhood.  I have great memories of those years in RCLL then went on to Madison Babe Ruth from 13-15 which allowed me the opportunity to play for Madison High School.  I was fortunate to letter in baseball at Madison playing varsity both by junior and senior years. My wife (Lisa also a board member) and I have two children in SEPLL one baseball player that has been in the league for eight years and a softball player entering her 4th year. I have been managing, coaching and on the SEPLL board for the past five years.  My wife Lisa is also on the SEPLL Board as Sponsorship Manager.  We have enjoyed being part of SEPLL and getting to know all the families of players and board members that make this such a great LL.  Both our kids had the experience of winning District 2 Championships in 2018 and the honor representing SEPLL in at State tournaments. I was fortunate to be able to coach my son's team which is an experience with him I will never forget.  Thank you SEPLL!

I played t-ball for a season as a child and missed the ball more than I hit it. My kids surpassed me long ago, and I’m happy to support SEPLL to help keep this sport accessible to those who enjoy playing. My oldest aged out of the league, after a few years of softball, and my youngest plays baseball. This year he will play majors. After coaching t-ball, and a stint as board secretary, this will be my second year as treasurer for the league.

I am very excited to be a on the SEPLL Board of Directors this year. I have loved being a part of this community as it has given us so much; new friends, getting outside and enjoying a sport we love, and most importantly being a part of a community that enhances our children. We’ve had one to three of our kids playing since 2013.  We are a family of five living in the Foster-Powell neighborhood.  I grew up on the Oregon Coast where I played softball in high school and grew a love for the game. We love southeast Portland and all that it offers it’s communities, the greatest being SE Portland Little League. See you on the Field!

Since 2012 I’ve spent most of my spring and fall weekends cheering on my two amazing nephews at their Little League games. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to watch them grow into young men as they develop their athletic, teamwork, and leadership skills. And if I’m honest, I also love being their crazy aunt, cheering them on and screaming from the stands when they ‘make the play’! As a finance and operations professional I have led a number of organizations aimed at providing children of all backgrounds with educational opportunities including fundraising for school related activities, reading with children lagging in reading and socializing skills, mentoring disadvantaged high schoolers to help them move on to college or trade school, promoting girls in STEM, and preparing children for careers in the quickly changing energy sector. I’m grateful to now serve on the SE Portland Little League board and hope that my contributions will help to engage a diverse and inclusive group of children and parents in little league. SEPLL is a wonderful way to guide children to become wonderful adults and to strengthen our community!

I am happy to be a part of this amazing league and to volunteer as a board member and equipment manager.  I volunteered as an assistant coach for my oldest son for 4 years, but after the kids' skills eclipsed my own knowledge, I knew my coaching days were over!  I am glad that I can continue to help out in this position.  I have 2 boys in the league and my wife and I have loved watching their growth as the seasons have passed.  Since 2012, I’ve enjoyed being a part of this great SEPLL community and look forward to the next season!

I am a Portland Native, having been born and raised right in the heart of SE Portland.  I actually played for the original SEP#2 Little League from age 7 – 15.  This is my 10th year serving as a Board member for Southeast Portland Little League (having served for Portland Little League prior to our official merger).  I’ve dabbled in all positions ranging from VP of TeeBall to President.  I believe in the program, and I stand by the equal opportunities that we strive to provide for all our players. I’m looking forward to another fun filled spring of some great baseball and softball! 
Have a great 2019 season SEPLL :-)

As a lifelong baseball fan I am thrilled to be a part of SEPLL. Our family has gotten so much back from this community. We have watched our kids develop in a sport that they love while making lasting friendships. As a longtime Portland resident I am happy to get involved in our local baseball league as the Safety Officer. Professionally I am a medic for a local emergency services department so this was a natural fit.

I am excited to work on developing Sponsorships for SEPLL in the role of Sponsorship Coordinator.  2017 is my first year on the board. My children have played in the league for several years and have enjoyed their experiences tremendously. This year my son will play Major Baseball and my daughter will play Farm Softball. I look forward to another exciting season!

I played baseball throughout elementary school, and was reminded of what a wonderful game it is when my two sons started playing through SEPLL. Seeing the game through their eyes and observing the benefits baseball provides to the players and the community makes me want to do whatever I can to promote the opportunity for all kids to play this game. Therefore, I'm happy to serve as the SEPLL Umpire in Chief.
