Chautauqua Lake Central School, with the assistance of the Chautauqua County Baseball Umpires' Association, will once again sponsor the High School Baseball Showcase, April 27-28, at Russell E. Diethrick Park in Jamestown.
This is the sixth year of the resurrection of the showcase, which was conceived in the 1980s. The event will feature 12 teams from Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, in a schedule of six games over the two-day period.
The showcase gives local high school players an opportunity to play in a professional baseball stadium, with the potential to be seen by college coaches, whom have been notified about the event.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday, April 27
Forestville at Chautauqua Lake, 4:30 p.m.
Gowanda at Southwestern, 7:30
Saturday, April 28
Clymer at West Valley, 10 a.m.
Ellicottville at Westfield, 1 p.m.
Pine Valley vs. Panama, 4 p.m.
Dunkirk vs. Maple Grove, 7 p.m.
A gate fee of $1 for students (K-12) and senior citizens and $2 for adults, will be charged to help Chautauqua Lake baseball, as well as to help add to the Umpires' Association Baseball Scholarship Fund. The gate fee will also go to help offset some of the costs of operating the event.
All umpires working games during the weekend will be donating their game fees back to the association to be put in their scholarship fund.

Registration for the spring travel season of the Northern Chautauqua Soccer Association (NCSA) remains open until Friday, April 6. The travel club known as NC Concord competes in the Southern Tier Travel Soccer League (STTSL). This year, the club will field teams in the U10 Co-ed, U12, and U14, as well as U17 Boys and Girls divisions.
Players are still needed for the U10 Co-ed, U12 Girls and Boys divisions, and the U14 Boys division. Player openings in the U14 Girls, U17 Girls and U17 Boys division are available on a limited basis.
Registration fees are $85 for the U10 co-ed and U12 division and $100 for U14 and U17 divisions. There is a $60 uniform fee for new players only. Need based scholarships are available on a limited basis with forms available online at www.myncsa.com. Mail or drop off completed forms with payment at 103 Gardner St.,Fredonia, N.Y. 14063.
The STTSL was established in 1991 to fill a need for a more competitive program than the summer recreational model for committed, talented youth soccer players. Teams from Chautauqua County participate as well as teams from Erie and Cattaraugus counties and Bradford, Pennsylvania. Last year, both the NC Concord U14 Boys and U14 Girls teams won their division championship games held at the Town of Ellery Park and hosted by the Bemus Area Youth Soccer Organization (BAYSO).
Bi-weekly practices for travel soccer begin indoors in March and outdoors as soon as the weather permits. Games are typically held on Sunday afternoons beginning in early May and concluding with the playoff tournament at the end of June. Plans are under way for all NC Concord teams to participate in a tournament in June.
Highlights of the STTSL include the STAR program, in which a patch is awarded to one player per team each game for the star qualities of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitude and Respect. STAR patch recipients are selected by their opponents at the end of each game. In addition, the league has created a zero tolerance policy for players, coaches and spectators in order to promote positive interactions with officials and everyone attending a game. To learn more about the STTSL visit www.sttsl.org.
