As was promised last year when we committed to our new bat rules, the bat rules for Fondy Youth Baseball league games will not change for the 2019 season.
With that said the rules may possibly change for the 2020 season so wanted to share some information.
There are two types of bat standards produced right now. One is certified by USA Baseball and the other is certified by USSSA Baseball. These are different certifications. Bats with both certifications will be allowed for next summer, the 2019 season.
For the 2020 season, USA Baseball bats will be allowed for sure. Our board is unsure if USSSA certified bats will be allowed as we continue to follow what other communities are doing. If you want to purchase a bat that is guaranteed to be legal for the next 2 years then I would encourage you to buy a USA certified bat.
All bats will be allowed for the 2019 season for kindergarten to 6th grade. All bats with a length/weight drop of -5 or -3 will be allowed for 7th/8th grade league. Leagues 9th grade and older must use a -3 BBCOR bat.
For those players that play in travel baseball tournaments we really do not know what the rules will be at each community. Probably best to discuss with your coach.
FYB night at Dock Spiders
Thank You FYB families! It was a tremendous night! This year was even bigger than last year and we hope to continue growing.
As you can see from the pictures, some of us made new friends!
We had over 250 players and their families attend with tickets purchased from us and who knows how many others made it there without our knowing.
22 players got to participate in on the field activities and we even had 2 brave coaches battle it out on the field in the bubble battle!!
5 teams made it a bonding event and attended the game together, and several teams tickets were provided by their team sponsors.
Many door prizes were awarded to the players in attendance.
3 Teams from the 7/8 grade league made a full day of it! They played a scrimmage at the complex, grilled out and even had a HOME RUN hitting contest on 4th st!
Congratulations Diondre Clapper of Team IST on taking home the trophy.
It was a perfect way to put a cap on a amazing season!!
We look forward to continued growth next year and hope that everyone will want to make this a yearly must do event!!
Just wanted to remind you of the best and easiest way to be notified if games are canceled due to rain. The procedure can be found on the back of your schedules and can be found on the web site but the easiest way is to do it right now as you read this. We will be utilizing a text/email based cancellation program. This service will text you immediately if a game has been canceled ahead of time. Opt in
your mobile phone by texting:
• MW901 to 84483 to receive Monday/Wednesday Youth Baseball alerts
• TR901 to 84483 to receive Tuesday/Thursday Youth Baseball and Babe Ruth alerts.
I recommend you do both in case you have a practice or make-up game on another night. After 4pm the decisions on games are made by umpires or by coaches if they do not have umpires.
We also recommend that you download the free sportsengine app and log in. This will give you immediate alerts to any game changes for things like rescheduled games.
