2024 OSAA Baseball & Softball Sportsmanship Award Winners

OSAA Community,

Please help us congratulate the 2024 OSAA Baseball & Softball Sportsmanship award winners, Maddox Derby and Samantha Raney. The Sportsmanship Award is presented to those players that are aging out of OSAA. Throughout their time in OSAA they demonstrated exemplary teamwork, gritty determination and hard work, which are the core attributes we promote within the league.

On Friday night, all 250 of us will be able to cheer them on at the Valley Cats game, as they will be throwing out the first pitches.

Congratulations Maddox and Samantha, well done, well deserved!

OSAA was awarded $31,999 as part of a Saratoga County grant throught the Department of Aging and Youth Services.  This TEAM Sports funding is provided by the Saratoga County Department of Aging and Youth Services via funding that was secured from the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS). A fund was created under OCFS in the state fiscal year 2023-2024 budget to provide awards to support youth team sports programs for underserved youth under age 18 and repeat funding from the State is not guaranteed.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The Old Saratoga Athletic Association (OSAA) was awarded the most funding, $31,999, to purchase a vinyl storage garage. OSAA President Mike Prendergast shared that half of their eight sports utilize Fort Hardy Park which has about four sheds down which have reached “their point of existence.” With OSAA serving kindergarten through grade six students of the Schuylerville school district, about 675 students, according to Prendergast, an upgrade to these facilities is a must and he’s very appreciative of these funds.

“So we’ve reached a tipping point to where the floor is starting to disintegrate, the ceilings of our sheds are starting to go as well, and we want our equipment to have longevity,” said Prendergast. “We’re using a lot of our money to replace those four sheds that are in Fort Hardy, which a lot of people complain about being a little bit sore eyes for the park, so putting in a spot that might be a little bit more feasible for our town and our village.”
