THANK YOU !
New Batting Cages at Complex
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.
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) Complex Batting Cages- We would like to put in a cement pad under the batting cages at the complex. We are looking for a partner in a contractor and cement company to work with Fondy Youth Baseball and we are looking for volunteers for the labor part of it. Any donated or discounted materials or labor can be honored with a sign at the batting cages and will be listed on this web site. Ideally we would like to get this done this fall. Let us know if you know of help or can spur getting this accomplished
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.
These generous donors are making this possible for our players and community. Please support these business' and say Thank You
