Just a reminder....Steel cleats are only allowed in the 13-14 year old division. However, they are not allowed when pitching on our temporary mounds. Only tennis shoes and nobby, non-metal cleats can be worn on them because the metal tears up the mounds. Thank you for your help.
Rain out dates have been re-scheduled sorry for any issues that this may cause. Rainouts are made up on the best available dates.
Call the Commish
Parents please call your coach First if you have an issue that needs to be dealt with. The Comish is quite busy at the start of the season helping the Managers and may not have time to respond to you in a timely fashion. He will refer you to your coach to start with to resolve your issue. After talking with your coach, if they can't answer your question, then contact Commissioner Mike Dunlap on our baseball hotline number Monday-Friday from 6pm-10pm or Saturday and Sunday from 8am-10pm. The number is 972-971-9210. You may also e-mail him anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fire Lanes and Severe Weather!
Please NO parking in Fire Lanes or the grass. The city is writing violators tickets. The parking lot near the playground is now open for those playing on the big fields. Also, Spring storm season is here. If weather becomes an issue on game days we will post a message here and on facebook by 4pm. If you don't see a message posted assume you are playing until notified otherwise. Kaufman Lions Club uses the NCAA lightning safety guidelines. With that in mind coaches are reminded to not be practicing when lightning is within 8 miles of the sports complex. On game nights we use a lightning detector and radar to keep us informed of the latest weather trends. When storms are too close you should hear 3 loud blasts from an air horn signaling a delay. Please clear the field area and proceed to the parking lot and wait in your car for further instructions. Coaches should go to the concession stand to meet with the Comish to determine if and when play can resume.
