Last Updated: May 28, 2016
WINNING COACHES ARE TO REPORT SCORES AND PITCH COUNT TO THE WEBSITE FOLLOWING EACH GAME.

If you don't know how to do this, the instructions are in the League Docs page 
of this site entitled "Game Score Reporting Doc".
Pitch Count for every pitcher in the game should be listed on the comments section when you report scores as well as updated in the Pitch Count section of score reportlng.  

SSL Rules and information can be located at: http://my.llfiles.com/00161785/OVYBL-SSL-Rules.pdf

 

 

A few notes about PitchSmart

 

  • As of 4/29, all team rosters should be available on the OVYBL website.  Coaches will use rosters to report pitch counts from games.  The OVYBL Score reporting tool will show you when a pitcher is available to pitch.  Please check this for your players after each game for accuracy.  IT IS ULTIMATELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH COACH TO KNOW IF A PLAYER IS ELIGIBLE TO PITCH.  The website is a great tool, but technology should not trump common sense.  If the tracker on the website is wrong, please e-mail ovybl@yahoo.com

 

  • Using an ineligible pitcher in a game will result in a forfeited game.   Rest Days are counted as full days.  If a player pitches Saturday morning, it does not mean they are available to pitch the evening of the day they come off rest. Rest begins at midnight on the day the player pitches.

 

  • If you are playing against a team and you believe the opposing coach is pitching a pitcher who should be resting - it is the responsibility of the HEAD COACH to address this question to the Umpire and HEAD COACH of the opposing team.  Please do not allow a coach to pitch a player who should be resting because you do not think it will affect the outcome of the game.  Remember our goal is to act with integrity to preserve our players so they can enjoy years of baseball in their future.

 

  • Actual pitches thrown will be recorded on the score reporting portion of the website.  Regardless of what the pitch count was when the pitcher started the batter.  

OVYBL Votes to enact PitchSmart at all age 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

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 in the Comments section when the winning team reports the game results on the website.

Rule Update (3rd to 1st Move is now a Balk)

May 7, 2013

 

Under a rule change imposed by Major League Baseball for 2013 season, pitchers are no longer be allowed to fake a pickoff to third base and throw to first as a way to dupe a runner on first base into breaking for second.  That move is now a balk.  

If a pitcher steps to 3rd, he must throw to 3rd.  Pitchers can still step off the rubber and fake to third.

OVYBL Umpires are asked to enforce this rule.   MLB Rule 8.05(c).

 


OVYBL Rule Reminder


RULE #4 on the 2012 OVYBL Pony Rule Sheet clearly states, "No Steel Spikes Permitted".  It has been brought to our attention that teams are not following this rule, and have players wearing metal cleats, even when in some cases they have molded cleats in thier bags.

Managers, this is one of the most simple rules to understand.  It has been in place for years for the safety of the kids.

During the pregame meeting of managers with the umpire, the umpire asks "Coach, is all of your teams equipment legal?"  This is not only in regards to the bats, but all rules on equipment, including shoes.  Any infraction of these rules, after you have stated that your teams equipment is legal will result in the equipment being removed from playing field, the manager being ejected from the current game, and suspended for the next scheduled game.
 
Thanks.
