2018 Bill Benzing Umpire Scholarship -- - FORM -

The Western Connection Umpires Association has awarded a scholarship in its name for almost a decade… moving forward that will be forever changed. In December of 2008 the Association lost a long time umpire and a dear friend. Bill Benzing, a 27 year veteran umpire passed away at the young age of 54. Bill was admired by all who knew him. He contributed much to the organization over the years and even more to the community Bill called home … Bethel, CT.As an educator in the Bethel school system for 35 years Bill taught much more than Math at the Bethel Middle School, he taught the lessons of life. Just as Bill was a leader on the baseball field while he was calling "balls and strikes" he was a leader in the class room as well. Bill did not stop when the final bell rang to dismiss the children. Bill’s day had only just begun. Bill served as an advisor to many of the Middle School’s clubs. He founded the ever popular Ski Club and continued to teach outside the class room by serving as a freshman football coach and a girl’s basketball coach. Bill’s legacy is one of sportsmanship, evident still in his family, his community and our organization. It is with much pride and a heavy heart that we add his name to this scholarship. It is our hope that each year’s winner will serve his family, friends and community……the same as our mentor-Bill Benzing.

 

2018 Diamond Club Scholarship -- - FORM -

Scholarship is open to seniors on the spring 2016 New Fairfield High School Varsity Baseball Team who are in good academic standing and who are pursuing higher education within 12 months upon graduation from New Fairfield High School. Application must be received by Wednesday June 1, 2017 for consideration. Scholarship winners will be announced at the NFHS end of year baseball banquet .

Important Information on the 2017 season: 

  • NFHS Team Manager / Announcer - - click here for more information - POSITION IS FILLED
  • Apparel - the apparel web store is open... - Click here for the on line store -
    • Keep in mind that the online store will close down on March 1st... so get your orders in.

    • Items in the store – UA Compression Tee, UA Cold Gear Compression Long Sleeve, UA Dry Fit Long Sleeve, UA Pre-game Dry Fit Tee, Cotton Practice Tee, Rawlings NF Helmet and a NF Holloway Jacket.

    • Please note that all orders are final. NO RETURNS. Keep in mind that NFHS Baseball is a tryout sport... meaning that if you do not make the team you can not return the gear you have purchased. It has been asked every year "Why don't we do the apparel purchase after tryouts?" The problem is tryouts end mid March. We would need the store open for several days and the best that the company can turn around the order is 3 to 4 weeks. That would give us our apparel around mid season... not very ideal.

    • Please understand that nothing is mandatory.

    • The Diamond Club will be purchasing all players a practice tee shirt (the blue cotton tee on the web store) and one pre-game shirt (a red dry fit tee). The order form for the "DC Player Apparel Package" will be collected at the MANDATORY Parent/Player Meeting on February 26th. Please fill the form out and bring it with you. NO Money is needed. - DC Player Apparel Package Form -
