MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As we wrap up the 2021 Summer Season, I would like to thank you for your continued support. We have had a largely successful season and are eager to make improvements for the future.
Unfortunately, I do need to take a minute to address an issue that has become all too prevalent. The lack of respect and treatment of our umpires is unacceptable. We have had several issues recently involving fans and coaches that are not only disturbing but unnecessary and they will NOT BE TOLERATED! The comments and actions by a few are not only ugly and unnecessary but set the worst example possible for the youth in attendance at our games.
There is currently a massive shortage of umpires and officials throughout youth sports, due in large part to the constant barrage of negative comments and attitudes from parents and coaches. Our umpires are not getting rich off this part time jobs. These men and women are choosing to become umpires/officials for the love of the game. Many of our umpires are young men and women learning the craft. Just as your child is learning we need to give our younger umpires a chance to continue to improve.
AfftonAA will remain committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for your family to make lasting memories. We will continue to do our part to look for ways to improve our umpire’s performance through mentoring and training, however we ask that you do your part and set positive example not only for your child but the rest of the children in attendance while at AfftonAA
It is with a heavy heart that we must say goodbye to Virginia Corner, one of the Founding Members of Affton Athletic Association. Virginia and her husband Mel Corner along with many others started this wonderful Association in 1962. They both dedicated their lives to keep Affton running for the Affton Community and surrounding areas. Virginia served on the Ex. Board of the Field Division and was a member of the Board of Governors. She was the first one here when the complex would flood to clean up and the last one to go home when the lights went out after games. She worked many hours in the Concession Stand until she decided to retire at the age of 90 in 2018. She loved that Affton AA was here for all kids to play ball. It was her passion.
Rest In Peace Virginia, Affton Athletic Association will be forever grateful.
