Coaches that have not completed this training and/or have not submitted a copy of their completion certificate, will not be listed on the website roster and in accordance with our existing league rules, coaches not appearing on the website will not be eligible to be on the field or in the dugout area during MCBA games. Certificates of completion may be forwarded directly to the MCBA office either electronically via email or by fax (301-924-6685)/U.S. mail (3415 Olandwood Court, Suite 202 Olney, MD 20832). Be sure to indicate the team(s) you represent.
The winning team manager/coach is responsible for two things. He/she emails or faxes the Game Summary Form to 301-924-6685 within 48 hours following the completion of a game. In addition, he/she must report the score on the MCBA website within 48 hours following the completion of each game. Please note that the home team manager is responsible for completing the Game Summary Form, but the winning team manager should take possession of it following the signature process at the end of the game.
All age divisions must report the number of innings or partial innings (1/3's) pitched for every pitcher who appeared in the game for each team. The information will be readily accessible for managers to view on the website. When the winning team manager enters the game results, be certain to also access the pitching stats and enter the innings pitched for each pitcher, as appropriate. Please note that when you access the Pitching Stats section of Game Results you have to enter under the first column "Ord" the order in which the pitchers appeared (1, 2, 3, etc.) and click on the box under the second column "G" indicating that he appeared in the game and then enter the number of innings and/or 1/3's of an inning pitched.
