Game Results Reporting
The winning team manager/coach is responsible for two things. He/she 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.
Park Police contact # in event of emergency: 301-949-8010
Inclement Weather Policy
Information concerning playing conditions at fields will NOT be posted on this website. We advise that you call the appropriate inclement weather hotline number for the field you are scheduled to play on (if there is a hotline). Hotline numbers are listed below.
Centralized Park & Planning hotline (all regional fields) 301-765-8787
Gaithersburg-Kelly Park (301-330-0050 ext. 2428)
OBGC Community Park at Freeman Fields (301-260-9004)
Rockville - Dogwood Park Fields (240-314-5055)
If there is no hotline for the field you are scheduled to play on, it is the responsibility of the home team manager to check the field at least 4 hours in advance of game time and make a decision as to weather or not a game can be played on that field.
In the event of a cancellation (regardless of whether there is a hotline # or not), the home team manager must contact the following at least two hours before game time:
(1) Ray Taylor, Umpire Commissioner (240-463-9707) for 9u-14u, for 18uA and 18uAAA contact Don Mayer (301-848-1905 or 301-645-5291) and contact Al Battista (301-919-9007) for 18uAA and 18uAAAA.
(2) Opposing team manager
(3) Home Team manager must post game as POSTPONED on this website (go to Game Results).
Note, even if a Regional Park with a hotline is closed, the home team manager MUST make contact with the above parties for any game scheduled that cannot be played.
9u/10u's and 11u/12u's typically pitch from 46' and 50', respectively. However, managers and coaches in these divisions are reminded that it is the responsibility of the HOME team to provide a pitching rubber and spikes and the below listed distances are to be used ONLY if a permanent mound in the ground creates a safety issue for the pitcher when he strides.
9u/10 pitching distance of 46' will move to 44'
11u pitching distance of 50’ will move to 48’
12u pitching distance of 50’ will move to 52’
Also, the HOME team must provide bases and spikes if permanent bases are not available at the appropriate distances. Do not assume that all regional parks will have bases set in the ground (i.e. bring a set of bases just in case).
