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.
The two new youth baseball fields planned to be built at Lakeside Park continue to be a #1 priority for Fondy Youth Baseball. Construction was scheduled to begin for mid-August but unfortunately has been delayed by some last minute DNR issues. We are presently working with the DNR and the City of FDL to work through these issues.
Travel Baseball tryouts for 2019 Teams will be held on Sundays, August 5th and August 12th. Times and locations will be updated soon. Players will need to register with tryout coordinator ahead of time. No cost to tryout. Based on interest there will be two teams at each level.
Sunday, August 5th and Sunday, August 12th. Players are expected to attend both tryouts

Code of Conduct Reminders; These are set by Fondy Youth Baseball and the Fond du Lac School District and pertain to coaches, players, and all fans.
Fondy Youth Baseball continues to set goals to improving the baseball experience in our community and we are looking for help from our player families. Some of the projects we are setting as goals are below and we need help to make them a reality. If you have other ideas on how we can make an impact or have ideas on how to help below projects please e-mail Ryan Haus at firstname.lastname@example.org
1) Lakeside Park Fields- Detailed information can be found below but these two new fields will make a huge impact and we still need donors
2) Painting dugouts at 4th street complex
3) Complex Beautification- We would really like to have ideas on how to help beautify the complex. We are looking for those with ideas or landscapers and gardeners to come up with projects that might help our complex around the fields look better. Even someone that might build flower boxes would be of great help or someone willing to paint.
As a player family or a community member please help with ideas or volunteering your time as it only makes things better for all. If you have other ideas, please let us know!
Youth Baseball Families,
It takes a ton of work by wonderful volunteers to conduct all facets of Fondy Youth Baseball. Our Board of Directors spends a lot of time to offer the best possible baseball experiences for all players and their families. This volunteer work is done year round with off-season planning and in-season management.
Responsibilities include but certainly are not limited to…
Members of our Board of Directors are at the fields long before any teams show up and then are last to leave with closing and locking everything up. Many board members are volunteering more than 5 hours per week to serve your families and provide these opportunities. League Directors and commissioners are the individuals that a ton of work falls on with each rainout.
Coaches are also a huge part of our volunteer network and we cannot thank the coaches enough that give their time to our youth and teams.
While certainly everything does not always run as smooth as we would like, please understand all the hard work and effort that is being put in.
Please take some time to say thank you to the coaches and Board of Directors that dedicate so much of their time to create baseball memories for our players.
Fondy Youth Baseball does not exist without the time commitment from the Board of Directors and our coaches. The full list of Board of Directors can be seen under the “About Us” tab. We also rely on the wonderful staff at the FDL Recreation Department. Please take the time to say Thank You! to all these individuals that make Fondy Youth Baseball happen and give so much of their time.
Please consider donating! Naming right are available.
