Secretary

A resident of Pescadero, Alejandra grew up with baseball in her life; both her brother and husband played in HMBLL. She is currently an active parent volunteer at her children's schools (ages 10 and 7). Both her son and daughter have continued the family tradition and have been playing baseball for several years and are in Minors and AAA division at HMBLL. One of her and her husband’s 2019 highlights was looking for the financial and community support to rebuild Pescadero Tom Roberts Baseball field and bringing back baseball to Pescadero. As a bilingual contact parent for the Pescadero team she has worked to reach out to the community to recruit and motivate students and parents alike to see the wonderful values baseball can bring to a child's life. Her family’s dream is to see more children participate in this great sport which builds leadership, teamwork and many soft skills that a child can use for a life time. Alejandra currently works in Development for a non-profit, which focuses on connecting resources to the South Coast. In her spare time she participates in an adult ballet folkorico, enjoys running, hiking, baking, learning about baseball and spending time with her family.

Dave Hipkins
Coach Coordinator / Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA)
Email: [email protected]

This is Dave’s second year on the board.  Dave started his involvement with HMB LL as an AAA coach for his daughter (who is heading off to college next year).  Dave and his wife have lived on the coast for 25 years and all three of their children (in college, high school, and middle school) have grown up in Moss Beach.  Their children always say how lucky they are to live in such a beautiful place, and Dave agrees! Professionally Dave has spent most of his career as an engineer building satellites and managing programs. He loves the game of baseball and believes it provides a great venue for kids to develop many important life skills without even noticing it! The importance of finding confidence after "striking out" and how good it feels when you make contact the next time up, the closeness you feel to your teammates when they pat you on the back after a tough loss and the excitement of a come from behind win. In his experience, learning these lessons outside the baseball field were not nearly so fun! As the coaching coordinator, he hopes to promote awareness of these aspects of the game and in so doing help HMBLL be recognized for what it is: a great place to play ball, form friendships and build community.
