NO DOGS ALLOWED
Please take notice! Dogs are not allowed at any Bobby Sox function. That includes all practices and games at all fields. The only exception is for service dogs. Mixing dogs with little kids is just asking for trouble and if we can avoid kids being bitten we can keep our insurance & player costs low. Board members will be enforcing this policy this year. We don't want parents to miss their kids’ games and we don't want dogs locked in cars in the parking lot either. Thank you for your support.
 


Important! The following equipment rules will be enforced during this season:
BATS:
** All bats shall be clearly marked "OFFICIAL SOFTBALL" by the manufacturer. **
** The bat shall be no more than 34 inches in length. **
** Titanium bats are considered illegal. **
** Batting Sleeves are legal for warming up in the "pitching circle". ** Bat "donuts" or "rings" are considered illegal. **
HELMETS:
** Only helmets which are stamped with "NOCSAE" shall be allowed. **
** All batting helmets will have a face guard and safety chinstrap attached.**
GLOVES:
** The pitcher's glove may NOT be gray, white or yellow. **

Any managing personnel ejected from the game by a director/board member/umpire will be removed from the team and will be restrained from future game attendance.
The Team Staff needs to work together in controlling emotional behavior which can only harm the girls and their effort as a team.

Vacaville Bobby Sox is a Fast Pitch Softball League for girls ages 4 to 18. There are no tryouts and we're committed to giving everyone the freedom to explore the great game of softball. We operate under these guiding principles: Citizenship, Friendship, Leadership, Sportsmanship and Scholarship. Our emphasis is on playing the game and having fun and our goal is that all Bobby Sox girls feel like winners and develop physically, spiritually and emotionally. We see the softball field as a platform upon which children can perform for their family and friends in healthy and productive ways. Our program encourages participation and involvement of the entire family and relies on parent managers, chaperones and coaches. The Bobby Sox tradition offers a supportive opportunity for participants ensuring a respectful, ethical commitment that views all levels of athletic ability as valuable.
