USSSA Age/Grade Exception Rules

The Midwest Ohio Baseball League has always been in favor of changes to the rules and sport that encourages more players to participate in baseball.

Therefore, effective with the 2021 season, and in cooperation with USSSA Baseball, the Midwest Ohio Baseball League is adopting the USSSA Age/Grade Exception rules. A summary of those rules can be found HERE.

Teams should be aware that not all Tournament events will allow players with these exceptions.

COVID FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 




League Position on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Coaches and Parents:

The health, safety and well-being of our players, coaches, parents and fans is of the utmost importance for us at Midwest Ohio Baseball LLC.

The situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing rapidly.  We are monitoring the situation and are in discussions with park districts and coaches regarding this difficult situation.  

Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton has banned gatherings of more than 100 people.  Individual games in youth baseball would not typically violate that threshold.

We have no intention of cancelling the Midwest Ohio Baseball Season at this time.  We know that teams, players, coaches and families all have a vested interest in this baseball season.  It is important that we protect this interest by not simply canceling the season.  Thus, as we have always done, coaches have the options to control their schedule.

You may choose to play or not to play games beginning March21st or to postpone the beginning of your schedule.  It is currently up to you.

Please communicate with your parents, opponents, parks/fields and any other stakeholders regarding early season games.

In the meantime, if you decide to play games or practice now, please remind your parents and players:

1. If you or your child is sick, DO NOT COME TO GAMES or any team events.  Please be responsible and considerate of others and stay home.
2. The older population is most at risk.  If you are over 60 please consider staying at home.
3. If you have a condition resulting in a compromised immune system, it may be wise to avoid youth sporting events.
4. If you have traveled recently to suspect areas of the world, please consider staying home.
5. Wash and disinfect your hands frequently.  Wipe down equipment after using it.
6. Cough into the crook of your elbow or into a tissue instead of your hand.
7. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing please seek medical assistance.

We are following this situation closely and will continue with updates.

We simply are not willing at this time, to simply cancel the season.  

If the need arises to postpone the official beginning of the season, or to otherwise suspend the season in some way, we will be in touch and post to this site.

Respectfully,

Wade Westfall, President

Celebrating our 30th Year




Midwest Partnering with Local Communities

Coaches:

The upcoming season marks the 30th for Midwest Ohio Baseball League (under two names).  The Midwest Ohio Baseball League has been the formative League for thousands of players who went on to play high school baseball, hundreds of players who went on to play college baseball and dozens of players, including some Major Leaguers, who have gone on to play professionally.  We are proud of our impact on the Baseball Community and intend to continue to positively influence baseball in the Miami Valley for many years to come.

Our Prime Directive has always been to do what is in the best interests of baseball in the Miami Valley and to remember, it is always about kids playing baseball.

We are announcing several initiatives for the 2020 season which will enhance this Prime Directive:

1. The Midwest Ohio Baseball League is partnering with communities that have made an investment in their parks for the economic benefit of the entire community. We will soon announce significant partnerships to run Tournaments across the Miami Valley.  
2. The Midwest Ohio Baseball League is partnering with these communities to provide game and practice fields for those teams who need or want it.
3. The Midwest Ohio Baseball League will be providing a Fall League in 2020.
4. The Midwest Ohio Baseball League will be bringing Professional Baseball Skills Camps to the Miami Valley.
5. We will be reaching out to coaches for feedback on our end of season awards programs for the 11-14u teams.

 

Be on the lookout for exciting announcements and more information in the coming days.

Rules 13.a:
 

1.      Ejections, Issue Resolution and Sanctions

a.  Any player ejected will be ejected from that game plus the next league game.  Any Coach ejected from a game will be ejected for that game plus the next 2 league games.  Plus, each Coach ejected will be fined $100 to be paid to the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
