 BASEBALL LIGHTS in 2019 for SIOUX CITY HIGH SCHOOL FIELDS!

Let there be LIGHT ~~~ And there will be BASEBALL LIGHTS in 2019 for Sioux City East, Sioux City West, and Sioux City North . . . The Sioux City Public Schools Foundation received a $192,000 grant from Major League Baseball's 'Baseball Tomorrow Fund'; as well as East, West, and North's parents, players, and coaches that have raised $25,000 per school to go towards the project that is supported by the Sioux City Community School District!!!  Great investment!!!  Great job!!!  Night baseball!!!  2019!!!  Can't Wait!!!

 

Posted: Jul 28, 2018 12:28 AM CST (KTIV) - The high school baseball fields in the Sioux City Community School District will be lighting up next year, thanks to a $192,000 grant from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF), the grant program supported by Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association designed to promote youth baseball and softball participation. 

The grant will provide funding for the installation of Musco Lighting, Inc. field lighting at the North, East, and West High School baseball fields.

Kari Treinen, Executive Director, Sioux City Public Schools Foundation, stopped by the KTIV News 4 studios to discuss the announcement. 

"We've had this project in the works for a little over forty years. Anybody who has lived in the Siouxland area knows that the three high schools in the Sioux City Community School District have never had baseball lights. And so we are thrilled to announce a 192 thousand dollar grant from the Major League Baseball Association, their player's association, and Baseball Tomorrow Fund. And so the Baseball Tomorrow Fund is helping make baseball lights a reality for the Sioux City high schools," said Treinen. 

"We started fundraising a little over a year ago. And at that time they shared with me some of the efforts that have gone into fundraising over the past 40 years. It's been great because this is really the culmination of school district funds, funds from local community business partners, Scheels is in for a significant amount as well, we have an in-kind partnership with Mid-America Energy.  And then all of the local parents and players who have gone out and done that legwork and shared that message, the Major League Baseball, Baseball Tomorrow Fund Grant is the cherry on top of all of this that's making it a reality."

"We'll have shovels in the ground before September 30. That's part of the grant stipulation. And the project should be completed by April 2019. We'll have night games for the 2019 baseball season."

"The Sioux City Public Schools Foundation finds funding from a number of sources. The Public Schools Foundation is an organization that is there to support the Community School District with things that limited tax dollars won't pay for. As most of your viewers are aware, the Sioux City Community School District is the poorest assessed property tax value per student capita school district in the state of Iowa. So the dollars just don't stretch quite as far and there are a lot of things in STEM, arts and culture, any of the equity issues, the Foundation likes to help with literacy, and things that really fill in the gaps for our students and for our teachers," added Treinen.

2018 TBD Fall League

Week 1

September 9, 2018

  • Thanks for your patience on the particulars of the schedule and the rosters for Week 1.  We do our best to include as many players as possible, and we get a lot of late signups throughout this last week.
  • We rank teams solely by age and until all teams are filled in then we can not rank them. We create the schedule based on rank.
  • With this in mind we prefer to be late and accurate rather than early and then have to make a lot of changes.  
  • For all following weeks the schedule will be posted on Monday by midnight for the following week.
  • Teams will face each other based on their ranking and their game results in the effort to provide competitive games in a developmental setting.
  • Teams and players will receive their t-shirt/jerseys with numbers at the field.  PLEASE keep the jersey number you are provided.
  • Teams are responsible for their own coaches.  In the case of All-Star teams coaches will be provided when available.
  • Players are responsible for their own equipment.
  • Parents are responsible for their own positive attitudes towards the fostering of this and all positive endeavors for their kids!

Rules:

  TBD Fall League RULES: 

2018 Total Baseball Development Fall League 

Official Game Rules:

 

Updates made at 11:55am on October 13, 2017 

Regarding any TBD Fall League Rules questions, concerns, or clarifications please contact Bob Protexter at 712-490-7199 or at protexter.tbd@gmail.com

TBD Fall League is governed by the baseball game playing rules of the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) Baseball Rules.  The TBD Fall League has it’s own set of developmental rules outside of the IHSAA which are:


Hitting and Defense:

Teams are to be set with twelve man rosters.

Thirteen player maximum plus is allowed only with prior approval of TBD and coaches.

All players hitting in the lineup. 

Free substitution on defense, with the exception of pitchers re-entering as a pitcher after they have been replaced on the mound with another pitcher.  (For more on pitching see: Pitching)

No bases will be awarded for hitters that walk, are hit by a pitch, or have catcher’s interference until the third occurrence in one trip to the plate, at which point the result will be the result, and the batter will take his awarded base.  Until that third occurrence that batter will stay at home plate and hit again with a new count.  The player making the last out will take his place at first base so that the team on offense will receive their awarded base.  Exceptions for ‘last out’ runners are catchers and the pitcher at that time where then the next last out will run.

Courtesy runners are to be used for catchers and pitchers with one or more outs.

The home team of the first game will be the visiting team in the second game. 

The home team is allowed to hit in the bottom of the last inning of the second game, if time and pitching allows, regardless of score.  If the home team is winning before that bottom starts and has won the game already, then that game score stands as the final score before that bottom begins.  Then as time allows for the session after the second game ends teams can play as many innings as possible.

The on deck hitter at end of game one leads off the second game for both teams, and the lineups stay the same from game one to game two.

 

Pitching:

Pitchers will be limited to three innings of work total and or a sixty pitch, pitch count total for each Sunday.

A thirty pitch, pitch count will be used per inning.

A pitcher can exceed thirty pitches in an inning only when the pitch count is less than thirty when an at-bat begins.  The pitcher then completes that at-bat.  

If there are less than three outs when the pitcher hits his thirty pitch, pitch count; then the inning will then either:

-roll over if that pitcher will be returning to the mound the next inning (Roll Over means that the inning stops where it is at and the next inning starts with same base runners in place and ZERO outs.)

-a reliever will be used (if that pitcher is done pitching for the day then the next scheduled pitcher will begin his appearance and his pitch count and inning count begins immediately with every one out equalling 1/3 of an inning)

-or a ringer (coach/instructor may be used if/when available) will complete the inning, and the pitcher can return the next inning or another pitcher can start the next inning.  This is at the descresion of the umpires.  

In accordance with inning and pitch count rules the only way a pitcher can pitch in Game 1 and Game 2 is that the pitcher must be the last pitcher in Game 1 and the starting pitcher in Game 2.  The base umpire will keep the pitch count and communicate with the pitcher on pitch count. 

The pitcher will be notified when he begins a batter with twenty five or more pitches.

NOTE: Free substitution on defense does not apply to pitching.  Once a pitcher has been replaced with another pitcher then that pitchers appearance has ended for the day, with the exception of using a ringer.

Game session:

The three hour game sessions will be played in double header fashion with each game being five innings each with a quick ten to fifteen minutes in-between games. 

The less the break the more the baseball!  The more you hustle on and off the more baseball!

There are no time limits to game 1.

After the first pitch of the first game for each session the umpire will record the START TIME and communicate this with each dugout.  

No new inning in any session but the last session of the day will begin in the second game of that session with less than fifteen minutes left in that sessions three hour time frame.  

No new inning in the last session of the day will begin in the second game of that session in that sessions three hour mark of the three hour time frame.  

Delay of game tactics to run out the clock will be dealt with appropriately by the umpires. 

 

Tie Breakers:

If the first game is tied after five innings then the sixth inning of the first game will start with a runner (the last hitter from the previous inning regardless of position) at second base.

If then the first game is tied after six innings then the game will be a tie, and the result counts as a tie. 

The same tie breaker situation will be applied to the second game for the 6th inning, and then as time permits, the 7th inning will start with a runnersat second and third base, being the last two hitters from the previous inning regardless of position.  The 8th inning will start with bases loaded with the last three hitters from the previous inning as base runners.  

 

Results:

Each Sunday teams will receive a win, loss, or tie for each game.

Any second game with at least one complete inning will count towards the team’s standings as a final game result.  

The home plate umpire will record the final score of both games after the second game.

The home plate umpire will confer these scores with each head coach of that day.

 

Rosters and Rankings and Scheduling:

Rosters for the TBD Fall League are finalized for rankings purposes on the Friday before the first Sunday of game play. 

With the Rankings finalized then the schedule is created for Week 1 using tournament style play and bracket scheduling; i.e.: first versus last; 2nd versus next to last; and so on.

Then after the first week teams will have records, barring ties, of 2-0, 0-2, or 1-1.  In subsequent weeks like record teams are to play each other.  The goal is to provide competitive games.  There are many exceptions to this rule for many different reasons such as specific game time requests and the such.

Roster limits are 12 unless a higher number is requested by the team and then approved by the league. 

Once a roster accumulates 12 or an approved higher number of players the roster is locked or closed at that number.

Rosters with less than 12 will have OPEN spots in which we reserve the right to add players to those OPEN spots throughout the fall as additional players have interest in playing baseball and sign up. 

The Pre-Season Rankings (PSR) are set on the Friday before the first Sunday of game play. 

The PSR is calculated by adding up the graduation years of all of the players on that set roster and then dividing that number by the total number of players. 

Each teams PSR remains the same throughout the fall regardless of player additions and player subtractions to the roster.

Games NEED to be played regardless of attendance issues for any reasons, so with a low set roster amount of 12, and with injuries and player absences, participating teams need to be creative in fielding a team. In the creativeness of putting at least 9 men on the field on any given Sunday all players participating in the TBD Fall League on any given Sunday must be signed up online on this Total Baseball Development website at this link:

https://www.leaguelineup.com/formpreview.asp?sid=485196453&url=totalbaseballdevelopment&FormID=129815

Regarding quantity of substitute players for any given team or roster; if a team has an injured player(s) or absent player(s) from a complete game day and your complete time frame then you can replace that player(s) not to exceed your locked roster number. These substitute players must be signed up to play in the TBD Fall League to be able to participate.

If using a substitute player within the league and from another team then best as possible not to have a regular game time conflict with their original assigned team.  In this case then the substitute player can and or should play in both time frames so that the original assigned team is not short of players. 

 

The Honor System:

In full use of.

 

+ Play hard ~ always.

+ Have fun ~ lots of it.

- Their own good attitudes - You are already on a baseball field so that should put you into the good attitude mood already.  Appreciate the abilities that you have and play hard.

- Their own hustle - Move the games along as sessions are timed.  If you walk on the field then you are losing at bats and opportunities to make great plays.  Do not leave any innings on the table.  90 % of hustle is on the players, with 5% on the coaches and 5% on the umpires.  The more hustle exuded the more baseball played . . . and more baseball is a good thing.

  • Individual Signup: If you are an individual signup or a very small group we will group you by need of position to the create the proper team pitching wise and defensively to the best of our ability.  Remember: Pitching and Defense wins Championships!
  • ROSTERS: As the signups come in and the teams round up we will start posting rosters and lists of players on this website so you can see who has signed up, and so you can get all your guys to sign up in time.  This will be general at first with mostly just names, and then simple rosters, and then more specific with jersey colors and numbers a bit later. We would rather be late and accurate with final rosters than early and constantly making changes.  Thanks for your patience. 
  • SCHEDULES: For the schedule of the first Sunday on September 10 we rank all the teams league wide and schedule championship tournament style.  Because of very many variables and some interesting team creation situations the schedule for Week 1 will come out late the week of September 5.  Again, we would rather be late and accurate than early and constantly having to make changes.  Again, thanks for your patience.
  • Schedules AFTER Week 1; Each succeeding week's games schedules and devised with like records and special pairings and will be posted on the TBD website after Sunday's games and by Monday night at midnight.

VOTE - VOTE - VOTE

 

#1 - Old School - This black and white pic shows Izaak Sander of the Lakes All Star MAROONS and Estherville Lincoln Central High School taking signs from his catcher and contemplating his next pitch.  The new colorful days are just like the olden black and white days, and just trying to figure out how to get the next hitter out!  (Game at Harris-Lake Park.  Photo taken by:     )

 

#2 - That's a HIT! - HMS & Lakes All Star MAROONS vs. the North All Star REDS . . . and this ballplayer shows good form while getting a hit up the middle while fan, coach, and dugout look on intently.  (Game at Harris-Lake Park.  Photo taken by:     )

 

#3 - Look Out! - Sergeant Bluff-Luton ORANGES vs. Wayne, Nebraska NAVYS and this pitch is JUST A BIT INSIDE . . . Cat like reactions keep this hitter in the box for another shot . . . well it would not matter if he gets hit, he still gets another chance . . . but still a good idea avoiding a blazing fastball.  (Game at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.  Photo taken by:     ) 

 

 

#4 - Intense - Definition of INTENSE: Marked by or expressive of great zeal, energy, determination, or concentration; intense effort . . . And yes it is for this righty for the HMS & Lakes All Star MAROONS as he shows great form in getting ready to deliver this pitch.  (Game at Harris-Lake Park.  Photo taken by:     ) 

 

#5 - Chaos, Controlled Chaos - Sibley-Ocheyedan HLP ORANGES and North All Star REDS and look at all of the moving parts and legs and arms in living color in this fascinating near to far photo that includes the hitter, the pitcher, the runner, the shortstop, and the center fielder . . . All going to where they need to be in utter and complete and very controlled chaos.  (Game at Okoboji.  Photo taken by:     )

  

#6 - Slide at 3rd - . . . . . . . and the runner is ?????  . . . Cherokee VEGAS GOLDS third baseman makes OR doesn't make the play and the out vs. sliding Gehlen KELLY GREENS runner - - - YOU make the call!!!    (Game at Strikers Field #4.  Photo taken by: Scott Linden)

 

#7 - Caged Animal - This swing is so fierce from this beast of a hitter that he belongs in a cage.  This MMCRU ROYALS hitter is showing pipes, strong legs, and a going yard or going home approach versus the OA-BCIG Maple Valley CAROLINA BLUES.  Just how far did that ball go . . . ??? (Game at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.  Photo taken by: Laura Prescott) 

 

#8 - All Legs - Uuummmmmmmmm . . . Not sure what else to say . . . other than this cool cucumber has his shades on to show that everything is CHILL, and that he is going to strike this hitter out! (Game at Strikers Field #4.  Photo taken by: Scott Linden)

 

#9 - Ouch, that's going to leave a mark - Hayden Dahlhauser takes one for his team, the Lawton-Bronson GOLDS as the Westwood/Ponca/Sioux Center PURPLES send a message!!!  Don't rub it Hayden!!!  (Game at Klasey Park-Voss Field in South Sioux City, Nebraska.  Photo taken by: )

 

#10 - Play at the Plate - . . . . . . . and the runner is ?????  Now it is the reverse of the "Slide at 3rd" photo . . . with the Gehlen KELLY GREENS catcher working to apply the tag to the Cherokee VEGAS GOLDS runner . . . and AGAIN - - - YOU make the call!!!    (Game at Strikers Field #4.  Photo taken by: Scott Linden)

 

#11 - Is the Fall League really over? - Brandon Kron of the Lawton-Bronson GOLDS is happy on the field and disgruntled without baseball and wonders . . . "Is the Fall League really over???"  So Brandon will be hanging out with Rogers Hornsby this off season and they will both be saying the same thing . . . "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."  (Game at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.  Photo taken by: Lisa Kron)

 

#12 - Focus - A North All Star REDS middle infielder is all focus even though everything around him is a little bit fuzzy . . . the mark of real concentration . . . as he waits for the ball intently as the HMS & Lakes All Star MAROONS base runner scurries back to the bag.  Pic complete with fall leaves in complete bloom to mark the real concentration of fall baseball. (Game at Harris-Lake Park.  Photo taken by:     )

 

#13 - Lights, Camera, Baseball - Lights, at the top of the pic . . . Camera, in the hand of the photographer . . . and Baseball, in the upper left hand corner.  Is the Sergeant Bluff-Luton ORANGES batter relaxed and ready to swing . . . OR is this batter relaxed as he has already decided he is going to take this pitch for a ball as the Lawton-Bronson GOLDS catcher prepares to frame this high pitch into a strike to get the umpires call.  So you just have to wait for this ball to land to know the outcome . . . and hitters have virtually NO TIME to make a decision.  Toughest thing to do in sports . . . READ THIS ARTICLE to find out more on just how long you have!  'HITTING A FASTBALL REQUIRES MORE THAN JUST QUICK REACTIONS'   (Game at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.    Photo taken by:     )

 

 #14 - 3rd Base Again - . . . . . . . and the runner is ?????  . . . A new Cherokee VEGAS GOLDS third baseman makes OR doesn't make the play and the out versus a new and sliding Gehlen KELLY GREENS runner - - -  History repeats it self . . .

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
