 2018 OFBA bat rule. 

By now everyone has heard about there being a new bat rule where all bats will need to have a USA stamp on it for 2018. OFBA will not enforce this as a rule the upcoming season and WILL consider going to it next season. 
What this means to you is if you have bought a bat with the new logo it is perfectly acceptable to use this year and you can also use last year's USSSA  stamped bats. 
Note: anyone playing in part time travel baseball for OFBA this season will need to have the new stamp as the league that our part time teams are in will be enforcing the new USA stamped bats only. 

No yelling

OFBA has instituted a "ZERO TOLERANCE" rule for all managers and coaches regarding the umps.
Any yelling, unacceptable behavior, and trying to embarrass the umps about their calls will not be tolerated anymore.
If any manager or coach is kicked out of a game, they will be suspended until they meet with the board.
If any parent is yelling and trying to embarrass the umps the manager will be kicked out of the game and
suspended until they meet with the board.
