*** PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING LINE ***

This has been an issue the past few events.... NO team is allowed on the turf field before 3pm! Please do not show up at 2 o'clock expecting to take the field. Even though we host all our indoor events at this facility, we pay by the hour for our field time. Teams cannot take the field until they are told to do so! We understand that teams need to warm up and that's why we allow time on field to do so before you play. I suggest to teams to have your players stretch before your on field time and teams should already have your pitcher/catcher warmed up using the designated areas. The first 2 teams will NOT be allowed access into the facility until 2:45pm! If you have any questions contact me... my number is listed at the bottom of this email.... Thank you! 



Sorry it has taken me so long to get this out.... we had a team pull out at last minute and, with no luck, i've been trying to find another one to jump in. We've decided that it is best to play a round robin schedule and give everyone the opportunity to every team there. Everyone will still get to play 3 games. All games are 65 minute time limits, finish the inning. All rules & information are listed below.

NEW THIS YEAR

* No one is permitted in any area of the facility other than the playing field area. Our warm-up area is limited this year. We have made changes to our schedule from previous years to allow each team warm-up time on the field. Teams will be allowed to warm up a pitch and catcher before their field time. This is new for us this year so we will try to accommodate according. We have another large group that will be in other areas of the facility. Please make sure everyone on your team is aware of this!
