SPECIAL NOTE: The Special events we are doing at Sharpsburg Youth Baseball is an attempt to raise funds to support the ongoing efforts by our Coweta County Parks and Recreation department to rebuild the fields and areas damaged by the tornado in March of 2021. Proceeds from these events will be used to help with any ancillary costs related to getting our park back to fully operational. We will also be using proceeds from our events to continue to enhance the park for our families. Lastly these events will give us the opportunity to give back to our community so that we can help specific identified families in the Sharpsburg area that could use our help.

BEGINING FALL 2021 8U 10U 12U DIVISIONS:
American League, National League, and Hybrid Travel League.
The American League will provide a less competitive recreational atmosphere that focuses on player and team fundamentals. Teams will be created through a combination of up to 5 frozen players and drafting of players through an organized league tryout. For SYB regular and post season games, these “Rec” teams will only play against other American League teams in their respective age groups. They generally will not play in tournaments outside of SYB nor incur additional expenses for parents during the regular and post seasons. After the league’s postseason tournament, they may, however, coalesce into a Board-approved All-Star team that represents SYB and incur additional expenses to be paid by SYB and/or players’ parents.
The National League will provide more competitive opportunities for players with advanced skills. Teams will be created via 9 to 12 frozen players with limited or no drafting of players through an organized league tryout. Such a system allows coaches to build their entire team roster. For SYB regular and post season games, these “Hybrid” teams will compete only with other National League teams in their respective age groups. They may also play in tournaments outside the park that do not conflict with their SYB schedule of games, and additional expenses (uniforms, tournament fees, travel expenses, etc.) are generally incurred by players’ parents to support such activities.
NATIONAL LEAGUE teams are not limited to the 9 player minimum in the Fall season, as it is understood that returning players from their spring team may be participating in fall sports.
Staff members that register as "Head Coach" will be prompted to select the desired Division they wish to compete in.
PLAY BALL !!!
Fields will be reviewed daily (Weekdays between 3:00 and 4:00 pm) and (weekends prior to 0900) to ensure they are dry enough to play. Fields will be closed any time there is a weather warning in effect in the county. Fields will be closed when the wind chill temperature is below 40 degrees. If you have any questions about Field Status, please reach out to one of the Executive Board Members.
In the event, Rain has occurred in the past 24 hours or the fields were "CLOSED" the previous day, the Field Status will show as "PENDING". until an SYB Board Member can check the Park.
Parents, Players and Coaches,
Now that the season is underway, we wanted to ask that you continue to remember the following items of concern so we can all enjoy the season.
First off, we want to give a shout-out to our concessionaire, Brenda Kay, for the great work she and her team of helpers have done the last few seasons and continues to do for our families this season. They work hard keeping the concession stands stocked, grilling burgers and hot dogs, and then working during the games so you, the parents, can watch your kids play ball instead of having to take turns working in the concession stand.
In order to ensure the success of our concession stand, the SYB Board is asking that you please do NOT bring outside food into the park. We invite you to enjoy the food they sell in the concession stand... see below for the menu! The more we can support the concession stands, the better chance we have of keeping them each season. One cooler per team is allowed for after game drinks and snacks... With that being said, we have worked out a deal with the concession stand where you can purchase after game drinks and a snack for $2 a player. This will eliminate each parent having to remember to buy drinks and snacks and then lug a cooler to the game. If you choose to do this, please let them know ahead of time so they can be prepared. They can be emailed at email@example.com.
Please ensure your players are disposing of their gum properly. No one should be discarding their gum onto the ground ANYWHERE. Please remind them to throw it in a trash can. If they are seen discarding it onto the ground they will be asked to pick it up and discard it properly.
We know that there is a limited number of parking space. It is something we try to take into consideration when making the schedules, but sometimes, mainly on Saturdays, there are a lot of folks coming in and out of the park. Please obey the law and use the Stop Signs as they are posted and DO NOT park in a handicap spot illegally. Also, use some common sense. Try not to cross the line and take up two spots and if you are going to jump the curbs, be careful and do not block someone else in. See below for some good examples of how NOT to park.
Sorry for the "RULES" email, but we want to make sure everyone is aware so that we can all enjoy our time at the park.
Hope everyone has a great season!
SYB Board of Directors.

C. SYB INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY SYB INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY will apply to all SYB Practices, Scheduled Games or Tournaments
The cold weather policy is fairly straight forward: If the “feels like temperature" is below 40 degrees during any game play or practice times we will not permit players on the fields. SYB will make every effort to make decisions related to this policy as far in advance as possible on game days & for practice times.
Umpires, Coaches and League Officials shall monitor for the signs indicating that thunderstorm are developing. Since the average distance between successive lightning flashes is approximately two to three miles, ANYTIME that lightning can be seen or thunder is heard, the risk is already present. If lightning is imminent or a thunderstorm is approaching, all personnel, athletes and spectators shall evacuate to available safe structures or shelters.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AS A COACH, PARENT OR PLAYER IF IT IS RAINING?
The most important thing a Coach, Player or Parent you can do if it is raining outside is be patient. SYB will make every effort within reason to play all games as scheduled.
In the event it is raining outside, SYB will make every effort to evaluate the fields by 4:00 pm on the day of the event. Please monitor the website for the latest information. It will always be the first think we update in the events of a cancellation.
