Adult Field Is Now Open - Restoration Project Continues

posted Jan 27, 2019, 2:33 PM by John Kaskie   [ updated Mar 17, 2019, 3:08 PM ]

The Adult Field is now open, however, we still have a few items to complete on our renovation project.  The sod is still to be replaced where the burm was removed.  Also, there are a couple of piles of dirt that need to be used to fill in the low spots with the remainder moved to beyond center field.  The fence in center field will then be closed.

Once the sod is installed, please avoid this area to the extent possible so that the grass will take route.  Also, exercise caution when playing infield and moving to field balls in the outfield as there is a small rise between the infield dirt and outfield.  This will be resolved once the sod is laid.....hopefully, this week.

Finally, the field has been crowned and additional field dirt has been mixed into the infield.  This makes the surface a little bit harder when dry.  We typically wet the field before being dragged to improve the field composition.  However, the Girls Association dug up our water line when they installed their new batting cage foundation.  They plan to reroute the line this week....and then our field should be in great shape with a 'little bit of water' on league game days.

Thanks for your patience during the final steps in this project.

Sad News: Walter Appelbaum Memorial Service - June 29

posted Jun 21, 2017, 5:45 PM by John Kaskie

On June 10, 2017, in the early morning, we lost a dear friend and important member of our KASA family.  Walt was our umpire coordinator for more than 20 years and an umpire for more than 50 years.  He fought a long and courageous battle against Cushing's disease for more than one year, but succumbed to the disease at the age of 87.  

There will be a memorial service and internment for Walt on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at the Rosewood Funeral Home in Porter, Texas where his wife (Pauline), family, and friends will gather to celebrate Walt's life.  The service will be from 10:00 AM until 12:00 Noon.  The address is:

   Rosewood Funeral Home and Cemetery
   22271 US Hwy 59, 
   Porter, Texas 77365

If you would like to send a card or note to Pauline Appelbaum, you may send your cards/notes to the address below (KASA PO Box) or to my email (jfkaskie@aol.com) and I will pass them on to Pauline:

   Pauline Appelbaum
   c/o KASA, Inc.

Rainout Protocal

posted Apr 12, 2017, 7:49 AM by John Kaskie

There have been a lot of recent question and criticism regarding the timing of decisions to declare the games a rainout.  For purposes of clarity, here is the process used (for the last 17 years) to determine and communicate when games are rained out.

Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday Leagues
+ Scott prepares the field for play between 1-4 PM 
+ If the fields are not playable, he advises the League Coordinator who updates the Rain Out Line (281-548-8802)
+ If the fields are playable, the next check of the fields is at ~6:30 PM when the umpires arrive to the field
+ If the fields are not playable at this time or anytime during league play, the umpire in charge (Rick) notifies
    the League Coordinator who updates the Rain Out Line (281-548-8802)

Sunday COED League
+ Malcolm prepares the field for play between 9-11 AM 
+ If the field is not playable, he updates the Rain Out Line (281-548-8802)
+ If the field is playable, the next check of the field  at 12:00 Noon when the umpires arrive to the field.
+ If the fields are not playable at this time or anytime during league play, the umpire in charge (Rick) notifies 
    the League Coordinator who updates the Rain Out Line (281-548-8802)

There is no need to send text or calls to your league coordinators or myself (John Kaskie) in between these times as we do not have time to sit at the fields all day when rain is in the area.......just are none of you would.  This is Houston, and anyone that has lived here for more than one year knows that rain in one area of Kingwood does not mean that it has rained at the field.  We work very hard to prepare the fields on days that it has rained and will wait until the last possible moment to declare games rained out..... I am sorry if this inconveniences those coming from long distances, but this is our process.  Feel free to e-mail me (John Kaskie) at jfkaskie@aol.com if you wish to discuss further.

Field Maintenance - Please Help by Raking around Home Plate and Bases after Games

posted Aug 9, 2016, 4:31 PM by John Kaskie   [ updated Mar 6, 2017, 6:22 AM ]

Both the Adult Field and Girls Field have had the infields reconditioned at the start of 2017.  In order to help to make these improvements last, we would appreciate if the team playing the last game of the night would rake the batter's box and bases.  This also help avoid puddles around the bases in case there is rain before the league's games.  Your assistance is appreciated. 

Field Usage

posted Jan 29, 2013, 9:43 PM by John Kaskie   [ updated Mar 9, 2013, 7:52 AM ]

The Adult Field is available for KASA Adult League teams to practice on Saturday after 3 PM and Sunday until 1PM and after 5PM.  Use of the fields is on a first come, first serve basis.  During these times, ONLY KASA Adult League teams may practice on the field so if others are using the field, you may ask them to leave.

KASA and Kingwood Girls Softball Association have a field sharing agreement that allows use of each other's softball fields during specific times for games or KGSA practices.  Please respect this agreement and do not attempt to use the Adult field during these times.
 
KASA and Kingwood Alliance Soccer also have a field sharing agreement for them to use the open field across the parking lot from the Adult Field.  KASA leases this field from Kingwood Services Association for future development of a new Adult Field.  In the interim, you may use this field for warmups/practice whenever Kingwood Alliance Soccer is not using the field.  Again, please respect our Field Usage Agreement and exit the field if Kingwood Alliance Soccer team is using the field for a scheduled practice.
