July 21 Meeting Held

Results of meeting

2014 Season will NOT consist of double headers. 

Bronco and Pony will play one nine inning game on Saturday.

Mustang will play one eight inning game on Saturday.

Pinto will play one 7 inning game on Saturday.

Runs per inning rule will apply, however, there will be no mercy rule.  Mercy rule was removed in order  to get the kids as many reps as possible.

 

A "call up" Player was defined.  A "call up" player may be used in Mustang as a 10th or 11th player.  Bronco and Pony may use a call up as a 9th or 10th player.  A call up shall not be used if he is the 12th player or more in Mustang and 11th player or more in Bronco and Pony.  This rule will also be utilized during the Spring Season as well.

 

It was also determined that 4 balls must be thrown by the pitcher for an intentional walk to be issued as it was in the current season.  This rule shall remain in effect.

 

It was also determined that the OVYBL will rewrite its current by-laws.  The By-Law committee is comprised of the voting presidents.  The first meeting for this will be held at 7:00 pm on August 4th at Zalenski's in Wintersville.

 

There was also discussion as to whether or not the OVYBL should convert to an "and under" league as opposed to "traditional" league as we currently are.  Discussion of this will be continued at the next OVYBL Meeting.


Rules will be posted in the next few days for the 2014 Fall Season.

 

Thanks to all that attended the meeting.

2014 Fall Baseball

 
With the Spring Championship Tournaments finished, and AllStar tournaments winding down, people are talking about more baseball.  2014 Fall Baseball is coming!  This will be our 6th year in the current format.   In the past, Teams have played double headers each Saturday, and practice once during the week.  season there has been some talk about playing one nine inning game.  There will be a meeting at the Wintersville Fire Hall on Monday 7/21/14 to discuss this.

Last season saw many great things for the kids, and it is hoped that this season surpasses the last.  There is so much to gain from Fall baseball, as it greatly eases the transition to the next level for your child.  He or she will get a glimpse of the next level in a more laid back environment.  Players play in the league they will play in next season.  Don't get me wrong, it is still competitive, as it is a game.  However, a great deal of instruction will occur, as well.
 
Contact your local Association for more info regarding registration.  Many have information posted on thier websites.  The expected start day will be Saturday August 16th. 
 
Good Luck to all players, coaches, parents and families!

Thanks.
