At OYO, we have developed a wide-range of rules customized for each division. As the season rolls along, we’re noticing more game delays as a result of coaches or parents not being familiar with the rules. Unfortunately, the game clock does not stop during these discussions and only hinders the development of our ballplayers from lengthy stoppage in play.
So, we strongly urge you to know your division’s rules. Download the softball rules. And, download the baseball rules. Having a very solid knowledge of your division’s specific rules can create a better game experience for your ballplayers, too. The more everyone knows the rules — especially our coaches — the better equipped we are to teach our players the rules, abide by the rules as a team and understand the calls made by our umpires.
And, most importantly, please share this information with all your visitors who come to the park to cheer on your favorite ballplayer(s) and team(s) to maximize their game day experience!
