As we enter the final two weeks of the regular season, we are most impressed by the development of all our ballplayers, teams and coaches. Everyone has worked so hard this year to make this season fun and memorable, through more in-depth coaching and player development initiatives, too.
All these efforts are designed to help teams progress and put themselves in position to be competitive during an exciting and enjoyable Rec League Tournament.
The Tournament | OYO operates a single-elimination tournament for all our divisions, except Tee Ball. The tournament is set for Sunday, October 16. Depending on cancellations and delays due to weather, the tournament’s rain date is first Saturday, October 22 and, if needed, Sunday, October 23.
Tee Ball Games Amended | All Tee Ball teams also have one final game scheduled on Sunday, October 16 at 10 a.m. These games have been updated on your team’s schedule in LeagueApps. Following the game, teams will be able to distribute the trophies to each of their players!
The Brackets | At OYO, we are a developmental league first during the regular season. We do not keep standings, and all first round games/tournament brackets were completed through a computerized random draw in LeagueApps. Please access your division’s tournament bracket below (see links below for your division’s bracket). Please note, umpires will oversee a coin flip or ball roll to determine the “home” team for all games in the tournament. If you have any questions about your bracket, please contact your coach, division commissioner or respective vice president. The brackets can be accessed below and the first round games are noted on your team’s schedule in LeagueApps.
Reminder for Coaches … Mandatory Meeting on October 9 | The mandatory Pre-Tournament Coaches’ Meeting is set for Sunday, October 9 at 7:15 p.m. on Field 2 at OYO. Each team must be represented by the team’s head coach or another designated representative. (Tee Ball teams do not need to attend.)
We wish all teams a memorable ending to their regular season between now and October 9 and a great start to their tournament experience on October 16.
As always, thank you for choosing OYO as your place for baseball and softball.
