Please do not request details about 2022 Spring Baseball until after Nov 13 when our online FAQs are updated. In the meantime, please refer to the 2021 Spring Baseball FAQ and Spring Season FAQ located in the main menu on this website. General information about player eligibility, tryouts, divisional styles of play, etc, are in the FAQs. No games schedules will be available until teams are formed and announced in late February. The 2021-2022 Calendar of Events will be released on Nov 13.
The City has informed us our use permit is active as of Sept 1 and we are allowed to use Little McKelvey for Fall Ball. Teams have set their practice schedules and team games schedules have been distributed.
In preparation for players setting foot on the playing field, please review the Fall Ball FAQ located in the menu near the top of this page. Here are key items everyone must follow so that we can get the season started smoothly:
1. Face coverings are to be worn by every person while on the field. The only time players on the field will be allowed to be unmasked is when they are under heavy exertion (as determined by the team manager). For the period of time when a player is unmasked, the player will adhere to the practice of social distancing. Likewise, coaches and other players interacting with an unmasked player will social distance.
2. Players are encouraged to have their own equipment such as batting helmet, bat, glove, etc. If a player cannot provide their own batting helmet, the league will provide one for the season (helmet to be returned at the end of the season in good condition). Two or three sets of catcher’s gear will be provided to each team. Catcher’s gear will not be shared during practice or during a game. Catcher’s gear will be sanitized after each practice or game.
3. The only non-players allowed on the field during practices and games will be the manager, coaches, and umpires. Members of the board can be on the field when carrying out their duties. Masked parents/guardians will be allowed on the field in an emergency.
4. Team managers and coaches must contact the Safety Director at email@example.com to have a background check done. If a background check was done for 2021 Spring Baseball, let the Safety Director know so that he can confirm it is current.
The team managers are:
Major Blue – Jeff Homan
Major Red – Kota Morikawa
Minor Blue – Frank Hislop
Minor Red – Garrett Liu
The team managers will be contacting their players this week. Fall Ball families can view the team assignments on the Registration Status webpage. Each team has room for more players in their roster. If you know of someone who has not signed up for Fall Ball and they would be a good addition to your child’s team, please let them know there is still time to sign up.
We are working with the city to see if we can begin practices this week now that we have team formed. When we have the date starting date set, we’ll email all the Fall Ball families about practices and details.
Registration for 2021 Fall Ball is Closed. We are 4 weeks into the season and have played 2 of the 8 game season. None of the teams are short on players this season.
Please plan on joining us for the 2022 Spring Baseball season. Registration begins in mid-November. If you are not currently receiving our news emails, please send a subscription request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
