ARE YOU READY FOR FALL BALL?
"WHEN WILL I BE CONTACTED?"
The "kick-off" Fall Ball coaches meeting will be held August 7th and rosters for Coach-Pitch leagues and older will be distributed. Players will be notified by their coaches as follows:
  • Coach-Pitch and older leagues: by August 9
  • Tee-Ball league: by August 16

"WHEN DO PRACTICES & GAMES START?"
PRACTICES begin:
- Coach-Pitch & older: week of August 9
- Tee-Ball: August 18

GAMES begin:
- Coach-Pitch & older: August 28
- Tee-Ball: September 8

Game schedules will be posted on our website in mid-August. Please note, due to the brevity of the season and availability of daylight, games will be scheduled on Labor Day weekend, but NOT the Monday holiday (9/6/21).
PHOTO DAY & FOOD DRIVE
August 21, 2021
All teams and individual players are encouraged to take part in WYBSL's Photo Day on Saturday, August 21st, at your practice fields. Please plan to attend even if you don't wish to purchase a photo - your teammates would like a picture of the whole team as a remembrance!

In case of questionable weather, please call the weather hotline and remember - we can take pictures even if fields are unplayable. If postponed, photos will be taken on August 28th. 

Please also help the WYBSL and Midwest Sports support W.A.R.M.. When you purchase a select package and DONATE one or more canned or boxed food item(s), you will receive an 8x10 individual print FREE. Coaches will distribute order forms with details at practices. Your donation will be collected and donated to W.A.R.M. on behalf of the WYBSL and Midwest Sports.

WEATHER/SCHEDULE UPDATES
Rainout
The league uses a Weather Hotline (614-523-6220) and Twitter (@WYBSLalerts) for game and special event (i.e. Photo Day, All Star Saturday) scheduling updates. Updates are posted at 4PM on weeknights, 8AM on Saturdays and 11AM on Sundays.

Please know that sometimes schedules must be changed due to reasons other than weather and we recommend you check for updates before every game.

The league does NOT update practice schedule status. It is up to coaches to follow field and weather policies appropriately.
