Zephyr Real Estate Sponsors Mill Valley Little League Team
Posted by Melody Foster-Brown — May 11, 2012
San Francisco, CA - May 14, 2012 - The Bowling Green Hot Rods, in the Rookie Division of the Mill Valley Little League, is now proudly sporting new uniforms provided by their new sponsor, Zephyr Real Estate.
The Rookie Division is for kindergarteners. The focus is on basic rules and entry-level play, batting off a tee, and all members bat and play in the field with no strikes, no outs and no score. The goal is to help them become familiar with rules, equipment and coaching along with the development of confidence on the field. The team is coached by Robert Lucchese, a senior vice president in the financial field. He is assisted by Dave Weisberg, a software developer. One of the moms, an agent with Zephyr, said, "These kindergarteners are incredibly cute, and if I have my way, we will continue to sponsor this team as they grow up."
Mill Valley Little League has been around since 1954, beginning with only two teams, the Yankees and the Indians. Now over 700 players comprise 59 teams, and many volunteers put in countless hours to make sure the League runs smoothly. Mill Valley residents see the Little League as a great family opportunity to gather and support the great American pastime.
Little League traces its origins back to 1939 when Carl Stotz, a resident of Williamsport, PA, began with his nephews and their neighborhood friends. Through trial and error, the rules, regulations and dimensions that are still in use today were established. Once a boys-only institution, the League has welcomed girls since 1974. Recent statistics estimate that there are approximately 2.6 million players in Little League Baseball worldwide with 16 geographic regions.
"We are pleased to support the development of team spirit and good sportsmanship in these kids,'" commented Randall Kostick, Zephyr's Chief Operating Officer. "Best of luck to the eager Hot Rods as they move through the season and through the Little League line-up."
