Couple reminders:

All game changes and or make ups should be handled in a prompt manner and the home team should email ovybl@yahoo.com so that I can make the changes on the website.  This is very important so Pitch Tracker as well as standings are up to date and accurate.

All game scores should be reported by the winning team within 18 hours of completion in case of back to back scenario's.  This also ensures accuracy and accountability for all teams.  It only takes a couple minutes and can be easily be done by your phone, make sure your score and pitch counts are both filled in accurately.  Coaches should agree on score and pitch counts at conclusion of every inning and at games end.  The password for score reporting will be ovybl17.

I look forward to a competitive season and watching the great athletes in the Ohio Valley

If any questions or comments please feel free to call any Rep or Officer or send me an email

 

Thanks

Our league Meeting was conducted on 3/14 and all organizations were represented.  Minutes are attached in League Documents

Some quick bullet points:

We have a total of 16 organizations in the OVYBL this year consisting of below teams!

  • Total Mustang Teams = 26
  • Total Bronco Teams = 26
  • Total Pony Teams = 21

Season will begin April 22nd and all games must be completed by June 17th

Year End tournaments will begin June 19th and will consist of an A and B bracket for Mustang and Bronco to make competition better and give lower seeds an opportunity to win.  Size of bracket will be determined at end of season.  Pony will have all teams in one Tournament Bracket.  Seeding is determined by record, then Head to Head play, then lastly Runs Allowed.

We will begin working on schedules now since we have total team counts, please do not ask when they will be done.  We will work diligently on getting them completed by early April, as you can imagine a massive amount of moving parts with field availability, multiple teams, etc.

Rule changes:

  • Mustang will not have Infield Fly Rule
  • An DH/EH may be subbed for during a game and also can play in this position back to back games now, they still cannot play the field once designated a DH/EH

I will begin adding rosters in this week if you see any errors please let me know

Thanks and if any questions let me know

 

 

 

OVYBL Voted to continue PitchSmart at Mustang, Bronco and Pony levels, rather than innings. Pitchers will now enter, exit and rest based on the guidelines on the PitchSmart website.  Number of innings pitched are no longer a factor.  Number of pitches thrown will be the only rule effecting when and how much a pitcher may pitch. For information as to pitching restrictions, please review the following website:   http://m.mlb.com/pitchsmart

MLB Baseball and USA Baseball endorse Pitchsmart

Coaches will need to agree at the end of each inning how many pitches have been thrown.  Total number of pitches for each pitcher in a game will be recorded under the players name, the winning team reports the game results and pitch counts on the website within 24 hours of the game.  All games that are cancelled or postponed must be accurately changed also so that pitch counts are tracked correctly during actual game date
