The OYO 2019 Fall Ball Season is now officially underway. Thanks to the remarkable work of our volunteer baseball and softball commissioners, we have secured coaches for all teams (except one…and more on that in a moment), ensured we developed fair and balanced rosters, granted as many requests as possible and finalized practice schedules for all teams. All while learning all the ins-and-outs of our new platform — League Apps — and one we know you will like a lot the more you reference it this fall and in future seasons, too.
TEAM ASSIGNMENTS, PRACTICE SCHEDULE NOW AVAILABLE
All team assignments have now been published. Simply login to your dashboard via our website powered by LeagueApps. When you check out your assignments online, you will find your ballplayer’s team name, coach information and practice times. Game schedules are forthcoming by the middle of August. If you’re not sure you’re accessing the right information, then review this helpful tutorial for some tips on navigating the team information section of LeagueApps.
Also, if you believe you are in the right place but the roster or practices schedules are not showing, then we likely overlooked one of the publish checkboxes. Simply email us and we’ll turn it on for you!
COACHES WILL TOUCH BASE SOON
In the next 72 hours, all head coaches will communicate directly with their teams to make preliminary introductions and set expectations. In the event you don’t hear from your coach by Wednesday, then you’re encouraged to email your coach directly with any questions you may have about the upcoming season! You can find the coach’s contact info via LeagueApps on your roster.
PRACTICES START SUNDAY, AUGUST 11
All practice times for Sunday practices (August 11 and 18 only) and weeknights (for entire season thru September 27), can be found in LeagueApps, too. Unless the OYO Board makes a leaguewide announcement, all practice decisions are left to the discretion of the the team’s coach when the weather is in doubt.
The OYO Weatherline (317.767.5170) is reserved exclusively for game day communications so please check with your coach about practices this fall. Please note, Sunday games begin on August 25, and game schedules will be released approx. August 16.
ROOKIE ROSTERS STILL ON HOLD…NEED ONE MORE COACH
In Rookie, we still need one more coach to round out the coaching ranks. Until a coach can be identified, we’re unable to complete, finalize and share the Rookie rosters.
If interested in being a head coach in this division, register online or email Dean Freije, Rookie Commissioner, ASAP. Once we secure our final coach for this expanded division, we’ll be just minutes away from sharing those rosters and practices schedules, too.
YOU KNOW YOUR TEAM…NOW GO RECRUIT-A-FRIEND TO PLAY ALONGSIDE YOU!
Most teams still have 1-2 openings left for the Fall Ball season. We added teams this past week to accommodate additional players since we know many families don’t decide to play Fall Ball until after school resumes and they learn about the activities their child’s friends are participating in. However, these roster spots are not unlimited and likely will be gone in about a week. So, now’s your chance to not just invite a ballplayer to play at OYO, but also on your team, space-permitting. Encourage your friends to register and join your team for a fun, memorable and productive Fall Ball season!
THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING OYO AS YOUR PLACE FOR BASEBALL & SOFTBALL
Once again, we truly appreciate your understanding and patience as we completed the team assignment process this fall. Most importantly, thank you for choosing OYO as your family’s place for baseball and softball. We appreciate your continued interest and support!
