8/9 Yr Fall Baseball
Hello Parents, coaches and Baseball Players,
I hope you are having an awesome summer! The weather has been fantastic.
We are in the process of organizing 2013 Fall Ball in September. We considering playing other clubs this fall as well as our own in Langley.
The 8’s are moving up with the 9’s this fall to form the next 9/10 teams as next Spring they will be playing together. We need to find out who is interested in playing this fall so we can find coaches, make teams , and schedules along with other stuff. There is no fee for returning Spring 2013 players, but for new players this year there is a $20 insurance fee to Langley Baseball. I know some of you have sent in your form to register for Fall Ball to Mike, please forward any new email / registration forms to me please. The season runs from September to Thanksgiving weekend.
Games will be held at City park and possibly other clubs ball parks too. Schedules will be provided once the numbers have come in.
Here are some general rules for this program:
- Hard balls will be used at all times
- Live pitching / with pitch count
- 3 strikes you’re out / will discuss the walking situation
- stealing from 2nd to 3rd
- stealing 3rd to home ( slide only )
- 6 innings max / or 2 hour time limit which ever 1st
- 5 runs per inning / 6th inning full line-up batting
- all batters hit in order
- all players must play in the infield for 1 inning by the 4th inning
- all players sit in order
- jocks/ jills, helmet, athletic pants required
- More rules and guidelines to follow.
Fall Ball is a great time to introduce the players to the rules of next season with live pitching, hard balls, stealing, a few rule changes. We may have Monday night clinics to introduce these specific drills to the mass age group so we can teach the players to play the same style of Baseball. This is also good bonding time for the 2 ages to meet each other and play ball.
I look forward to seeing you all in Fall ball for a great quarter on the diamond!
If you know a friend that is interested in playing baseball they are always welcome to join the fun in Baseball and Fall Ball is always a fun environment.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
IMPORTANT: Please register soon. There will be a waiting list as we already have almost 3 teams!
