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.
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.
BASEBALL BAT BUYING INFORMATION

GLOVE BUYING INFORMATION
The biggest issue seen in player development is parents buying too big of gloves for their child. Reminder that high school and pro infielders use gloves that are 11.25 or 11.5 inches. K-2nd grade players should probably only have 10.5 inch gloves No player should probably have a glove greater than 11.5 inches in all our leagues unless they are primarily an outfielder or play first base as those are the only positions that typically use a larger glove. If a player may need a new glove next year, buy it as soon as possible so they have a chance to break it in prior to next season.
