FALL BALL REGISTRATION
by posted 07/22/2014
 

Registration for FALL BALL IS NOW OPEN.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Volunteers are still needed to help coach.  I know that many feel like they cannot take on the responsibility of managing.  In order to manage numbers, we need the adult volunteers.  Therefore, if you feel like you can coach, you can team up with another and split the responsibility.

Notes:

It looks like we will have at least 2 to 3 teams per division.

Players that are trying out for the Coyotes and are still planning on playing Fall baseball can still sign up for Fall Ball. 

If you make the Coyote team, that fee will be applied to the Travel fees and you would be playing in the Mundelein league with your Travel team and not be playing GYBA in-house Fall Ball. 

If you do not make the team, then you will be drafted on an in-house Fall Ball team.

Because of this, the Fall Ball draft will take place on Aug 24, once Travel teams have been selected.

Opening Day would still be on Aug 30.  However, practices will be run differently until teams have been selected.

Here is an example plan: Let’s say that there are 40- 10yr olds signed up.  Mustang coaches and volunteers would set up skill stations and players would rotate through each station.  These stations will help build skills and will carry over into the season when teams are made. 

Dates and times will be made for these practices and players can come if they can. 

 

 

 

Below is a tentative schedule:

Aug 6- Coaches will be selected and contacted
Aug 11-Aug 29- Team practices- 2-3 times a week
Aug 30- Opening Day
Oct 18-19- Playoffs

 

Thanks,

Tom Guryn

Board Members Needed

GYBA currently has a number of openings for board member positions.  We are only capable of offering quality programs for in-house and travel baseball when people who care about their child’s baseball experience volunteer their time to make things run.  If you feel you could help our organization, please contact Rob Piggott at

USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards
by posted 03/12/2013
 

 

This year, GYBA will comply with USSSA Baseball Bat Performance Standards by requiring all players to use bats that have either BBCOR or USSSA 1.15 bpf stamp.  

BBCOR is only for high school type bats (drop 3).



In summary, the  Baseball bat rules for 2013 are as follows:

Pinto & mustang – 2 ¼” max
Bronco – 2 5/8” max
Pony – 2 ¾” max

2 3/4" barrel bats are LEGAL only in PONY divisions.

2 5/8" barrel bats are LEGAL in BRONCO and PONY divisions, If a 2 5/8" bat is a -3, it must be BBCOR certified. 

2 1/4" bats are LEGAL in all divisions, if they are manufactured to a Bat Performance Factor of 1.15 or less. In addition the bat must be labeled "approved for play in PONY Baseball" and stamped "BPF 1.15" and the year manufactured. Recognizing that some bats may not have the year manufactured on the bat, it still must have BPF 1.15 stamped on the bat. 

Bat material is factored into the Bat Performance Factor (BPF) testing protocol as well as the BBCOR testing protocol. Subsequently as long as the aforementioned "marks" are on the bat that is the indication they have passed the appropriate testing protocol and are approved for play in GYBA Baseball.
