Fun fact about you My family enjoys going to many Nationals games each season. Our seats this season are behind the Nat's dugout.
Your favorite baseball memory As a player: Winning the Vienna (VA) Little League Championship in 1987. As an adult: Seeing Jayson Werth's walk-off HR in Game 4 of the 2012 NLDS live and in-person.
Best piece of baseball parent advice Make sure the younger players have fun - don't over-coach them, and they'll learn to love the game as much as you do.
How long have you been with ALL? I started coaching my son JD's tee ball team in Fall of 2013 and have been a commissioner since Spring of 2014.
Why volunteering for ALL rocks? Three things: It's a chance to give back to an organization that provided so many of my best memories as a youth, to help kids learn to love the greatest game on earth, and to meet new people!

This is my sixth year with the Arlington Little League, Challenger Division, three years as a parent, and three years as a parent/Commissioner. The wonderful part of being the Commissioner for the Challengers is the fun of working with a lot of the same players year after year, getting to know the parents, and going on field trips with our "family" team.
My favorite baseball memory is being at the 2012 NLDS Game when Jayson Werth hit a walk-off home run. I never heard the stadium rock so loud!
