Welcome to the Fall 2022 season! It promises to be another exciting time at our beautiful fields as we begin practices tomorrow. We have a record number of players and teams this Fall so we wanted to send out some reminders on how we can all make our time together safe and enjoyable.
Parking -- Please ensure you use designated parking spaces only. Please do not park on a lawn or block driveways. Brookhaven PD will ticket if you park in front of a fire hydrant or within a car length of an intersection. In addition to the surface lot by Major field and the expanded lots on the softball/football side, parking is now open at the pool and you can take the shorter, safer, path by the lake to access the fields rather than walking down the road.
Food and Beverage -- Cafe at Pharr will be back again this Fall for both practices and games (9am-7pm Saturdays, 11am-7pm Sundays) and serving a full complement of ballpark meals, snacks and drinks. Thank you for your patronage. You are welcome to bring your own food and beverage but please know that it is against Brookhaven law to consume alcoholic beverages in the park. Please do not bring alcohol to a practice or game. Please do not put anyone in a position to ask you to leave or have Brookhaven PD issue you a citation.
Maintenance -- There should be at least one trash receptacle at every field. The expectation is that we leave the park in a better state than when we entered. Please do your part. If you see overflowing trash cans or experience other issues related to park maintenance, such as clogged toilets or leaking faucets, please use the Brookhaven Connect site/app to report them.
Sportsmanship -- Please remember these are kids. This is a game. Coaches are volunteers. Umpires are human. Let’s respect these tenets of youth athletics when we’re at the fields and in the stands.
Last, as many of you know, we are a 100% volunteer run organization. Your coaches will ask for assistance with roles such as team parent or to help fundraise on behalf of the team for projects around the park. Please consider volunteering to help make this a great experience for the players. Thank you for choosing to play at Murphey Candler. We look forward to welcoming everyone down to the park!
