In August of 2019, Greater Westfield Babe Ruth will be hosting the 2019 Babe Ruth 13 Year Old World Series. Babe Ruth teams from all over the United States, plus one from Westfield, will make up the World Series participants. All games will be played at Bullens Field in Westfield beginning on Thursday, August 8th and continuing through Thursday, August 15th, with an opening World Series Banquet on Wednesday, August 7th.
To help make the time the players and their team followers are in Western MA the most enjoyable, we are going to assign each team one or two Team Liaisons.
The Team Liaisons will do everything they can to enlighten their assigned guests about the things to do while they are here and to help make them feel comfortable. This could include how to get to a particular venue, what there is to do for activities, or where to get the best Chinese food. A further responsibility will be washing your assigned team’s uniforms unless that team has made other arrangements for laundry service. Compensation for uniform laundering and more specific details will be provided to you at the start of the Series by our Laundry Coordinator. Overall, as a Team Liaison, you will be expected to be a valuable resource to the team during their stay in Western MA.
Team Liaisons will be chosen to represent the nine visiting teams, and each Liaison will participate in all team and World Series activities. Once the Liaisons are chosen, meetings will be held to familiarize them with the upcoming events. The Liaisons will meet the teams when they arrive and will travel to the team hotel to meet with the team followers (parents and guests) to provide them with a Western MA Travel Manual for their stay.
An informational meeting and training sessions will be held once the Liaisons have been chosen. A complete Western MA Resource Manual and travel material will be provided to each Liaison.
Please join our team to help make this a once in a lifetime opportunity for the players and their families visiting Western MA.
