2019 Spring ball will be here before we know it and with sign ups taking place in the first of the year I wanted to get our meeting dates out here.

1st OVYBL Meeting = November 4th 6PM @ Follansbee Field Press Box

Completed:  Many potential rule changes were discussed and will be voted on at January meeting.  Decisions and votes were conducted on two topics.  1) OVYBL will play under the Pony age structure completely with August 31 being the cut off date.  Also this year we will begin the season on April 27th.  This is a week later than usual but due to April 21st being Easter we felt necessary to avoid many cancellations due to lack of players.  With that said the Season will run 7 weeks from April 27th through June 15th and will allow for a 14 game season in the Mustang & Bronco divisions.  Playoffs will begin on June 17th.


2nd OVYBL Meeting = January 6th 6PM @ Weirton American Legion 

Completed: Multiple rules were changed and are now updated under 2019 Rules, agreed to continue having both A&B Tournament Brackets.  Announced receipt of receiving $500 from Dicks Sporting Goods as well as 20% off Days March 3rd and 10th.


3rd OVYBL Meeting = March 17th 6PM @ Weirton American Legion, 3140 Pennsylvania Avenue

This is the main meeting in which all teams must be paid for as well as turn in full rosters along with coaches contacts must be handed in.  If your teams are not in and paid in full at this meeting they may not be permitted as scheduling will begin on 18th.


Please attempt to have someone within your organization in attendance for all league meetings, any of these can have decisions made and voted on.



Any questions feel free to call your organizations President or myself.
