- Return an actual proper YOUTH BASEBALL DIAMOND to the East Side of Richmond. Ideally one with, at min, an AT Infield similar to what is being built in many sectors around the Lower Mainland and Pacific Northwest. Most recent one is probably at Hillcrest Park in Vancouver. Just feel this could advance the game so much more for those that are taken to playing it given the current state of "volunteerism" in youth sport.. (NOTE: RICHMOND BASEBALL has committed to underwrite a portion of the needed cost - in a working partnership with the City of Richmond and Richmond Sports Council - to put this effort into reality).
- Help establish a healthy Little League program playing out of Richmond.. While this effort began in 2017, much work yet has to be done in order to “build a compelling story” for the City of Richmond and the local BC Minor affiliate, RCBA. Bottom line, is the long held belief by TDC and others that the game and those wanting to engage in it can better be served by having participants play on fields and rules that best suit their skill level......and not just their age or league affiliation requirements....Stay tuned on this one for 2022!
- Bring a PBL BANTAM PREP TEAM - to be known as the RICHMOND BLUE JAYS - into Richmond. TDC, RICHMOND BASEBALL and RICHMOND LITTLE LEAGUE have a strong affiliation with those that operate the Delta Blue Jays. The hope is to one day develop enough Richmond players to warrant such an effort, even if it meant they'd also supplement their roster from the numerous "shared areas" in order to strengthen it's team while at the same time, allowing RCBA to still field a Bantam AAA team. That all happens by consistently working towards developing as many players as possible at the younger ages. Something which TDC, Richmond Baseball and RCBA are all committed to.
- Have Richmond represent B.C. at (at least) the LL Provincials one year, and then moving along to the Canadian LL Championships enroute to the Little League Worlds Series… Many will “scoff” at the premise of this. But, of course, that’s why I’ve put it on the “Goal” list…. As stated recently, “You never know how good you can be, until you fail”.
Because almost everyone has a view and an opinion on many of the current efforts above, I’ve created a Project Questions tab under the FAQ… Check back there from time to time for updates on our current progresses…..or regressions.
