Patch wants to see your favorite Emmaus and Upper Milford teams in action.
Whether your team is on the way to the playoffs or reminiscent of the Bad News Bears, we want you to take us out to the ball field with you this spring. Be it on the baseball diamond, at the soccer field or during a flag football game, Patch wants to see your young - or not so young - athletes in action. Baseball fans in Upper Milford Township know that once spring has sprung, they can catch one of the many teams of the Upper Milford Youth Association competing on the Lower Field in Lenape Park just about any day of the week.

Perhaps you've seen her at a football game, next to the baseball field, or at the gym for a basketball game. Where ever you see her, Patty is cheering for Emmaus with a bigger smile and more community spirit than most.
Name: Patty Lambert Where do you live? Patty, who attended Bethlehem Business College, is originally from Bethlehem, but now lives in Emmaus. What did you do for a living? “I worked for the transit center in Allentown doing general office work. Then I worked at Muhlenburg Hospital in the accounting office for 26 years." What has inspired you to attend local sporting events so religiously? “When I was five, my dad started taking me to all of the games in Bethlehem. He took me when I was younger, but as I got older I just went by myself. We didn’t have a car so I walked or took the bus.” Do you have any pets? “I have two cats, but I used to have eight. Their names are EP and PC for “Emmaus and Parkland” and “Parkland and Coplay.” I got them…

These days children are getting awards for merely participating in sports and other activities.
Editor's Note: The Emmaus Patch editor's husband, "Coach Harry," was the coordinator of the Upper Milford Youth Association summer 2011 kickball program. Moms Talk is a weekly feature on all Lehigh Valley Patches in which local parents are invited to share opinions and advice on parenting issues. This week’s Moms Talk topic comes from Moms Council member Beth Sharpless and relates to sports medals, trophies and similar prizes: Here’s what Beth has to say: “Given that my daughter just received her first medal for playing kickball (with the Upper Milford Youth Association), I realize we are now embarking on a new phase in her life-that of sports, medals, trophies and the like. Watching all of the kids grab and ‘gimme’ at the medals made me …

Can't kids just be kids?
After this past week’s record-breaking temperatures, I became “heated” in more ways than one. What value is there to having a group of 7- and 8-year-olds play baseball in 98-degree weather when warnings have been issued for poor air quality? I was disturbed to think the coaches were so set on these kids playing, that their health and safety weren’t a consideration. “If they drink lots of water, they’ll be fine,” someone said. Well, my son (who has asthma) just might not be “fine” if he’s pushed to play catcher for two hours in 100 percent humidity at those record-breaking temperatures. Fortunately after some debate with the other coach, our coach had enough sense to postpone the game -- just to “play it safe.” Bless him for standing up for…
