Coaches and Parents, 

 

We have had a lot of scheduling issues due to multiple players registered in multiple sports among other reasons.  No schedule can be perfect for the whole league.  We acknowledge this and have created this new policy to allow games to be played without forfeit.  This policy is for Fall 2019 only.  All schedules are final and we can not reschedule games as most rescheduled games cause even more conflicts. Please utilize this rule to get the games in.

 

Borrowed player rule:

A team may borrow a player(s) to avoid a forfeit only.

 

Borrowed players must be a current season registered player and must come from a FYBA league team in the same or younger age group.

The team borrowing players may only borrow to get to 8 players which avoids the forfeit.

     A.) 5U-8U: You may borrow until you have 8 players.  The 9th and 10th slots will be automatic outs. 

     B.) 9/10U and older: You may borrow to get to 8 players.  The 9th slot is an automatic out. 

    If a rostered player shows up to the game that was questionable on showing, you may not use the borrowed player.  If any borrowed player is used, you may only have 8 players.

Borrowed players must be announced to the opposing team and umpires at the pre-game plate meeting.

Borrowed players must wear their original teams uniform so that they are noticed as borrowed players.

Borrowed players must bat last and may not pitch at all.

If a borrowed player does not bat last and/or pitches at least 1 pitch, the team will forfeit the game.

If a team borrows players and they bat 9 or more players, the team will forfeit the game.  

If a borrowed player does not wear their registered teams uniform, or is not announced to the opposing coach prior to the game, the game will be called a forfeit.

 

Example:

A team has 6 players that can show. This team may borrow 2 players to avoid the forfeit.

If you have any questions, please contact a league commissioner.

Tennis Courts & Parking Issues at Mulberry Park

Attn: FYBA Coaches and Parents - we need your help! The tennis courts at Mulberry Park are for tennis ONLY. Please do not conduct practice, warm-up or play baseball, softball and/or soccer on the tennis courts. The City of Forney has asked for our assistance in keeping the tennis courts open and available for those individuals wishing to play tennis. Also, please do not park and/or drive your vehicle onto the fields or grassy common areas at Mulberry Park. Please park in designated parking areas ONLY. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

CREATE A TEAM WEBSITE!

A great way to communicate with your parents and players is thru a website... save yourself countless number of phone calls... now no one can say "I didn't get the message!"

Creating a website is easy thru League Lineup or Eteamz. You don't have to be a computer geek to do so... it is very user-friendly! Many teams in the league have already done so... check out these other team websites in the LINKS section. Also, the best thing is that it is FREE to do so... no cost... zilch... goose-egg... notta... you get the picture.

Once you get your website up, send us an email and let us know and we'll add your site to the LINKS section. There will be a vote at the end of the season for the Best Team Website!
