Year End Tournaments

Year End Tournament Schedules:

13 & 14u Updated 7-9


Attached are the tournament breakdowns for the 13-14u event this week.
Most of the divisions are pretty self-explanatory.  Some require a degree of explanation so that everyone understands how the tournament selections were determined.  We will break it down now.
13uD2:  The division winners are all cut and dry.  The wild card however requires some explanation.
The first step is to determine if all teams in the running for the Wild Card met their 90% (or did all they could to make that happen and other teams could not play due to player availability etc).  The 90% is rounded up.
The Springboro Destroyers and Troy Trojans did not meet their 90% and the Dayton Sting did meet the 90%.  Therefore, the Dayton Sting won the Wild Card as they have a higher winning % than any other team which did meet their 90%.
13D3S is cut and dry.
13D2N requires some explanation.  The MW Mayhem, Springfield Steal Orange and Tomahawks were tied.  The MW Mayhem beat Tomahawks twice and split with Steal.  MW Mayhem is the #1 and the Steal is #2.
14D1:  The Division winner, Dayton Classics cannot play.  The #4 seed, the Dayton Sting did not meet their 90%.  So, the Canes and Beavercreek Sox will play a one game tournament.
14D2N requires some explanation.  First, the Dayton Classics did not meet the 90% rule.  They are out.  The Ohio Tribe did all they could to get their final game in against the Dayton Classics.  This is one of the situations where we look at the standings in view of IF we awarded a forfeit, what happens.
In a forfeit event, the MW Mayhem, Heat Baseball and Ohio Tribe each end up with 7 wins.  They split among each other, so the next tie breaker is record against next highest team, the Dayton Classics by winning %.
The Ohio Tribe won the only game they played against the Classics.  The Classics beat both the Mayhem and Heat twice.  So, the Ohio Tribe is the #1 seed.

Now we go to break the tie between the Mayhem and Heat.  The Mayhem beat Beavercreek twice and the Heat split with them
14D2S is cut and dry.
14D3:  The two top teams, Twin Creek Mudcats and Great Miami River split with each other and both beat every other team.  Thus, they will play a one game, winner take all (both the Division title and the Tournament title) game.
Hopefully these explanations will help all coaches and teams understand the process the League goes thru to determine the tournament standings.
Thank you.

Midwest Ohio Baseball 2017 Year End Letter

Coaches and Parents:


The 2017 season has now come to end effective with August 31st when our contracts end for 2017.


The teams in the league played more than 10,000 games involving more than 3000 players.  We are proud to report that there were a very limited number of ejections and issues requiring significant administrative attention.


The vast majority of our players, coaches, and parents understand that the purpose of the League, and everything that is done, is for young people to learn about life and become better baseball players and better people.  This should drive all that we do within the League.


Contract Date for Midwest Ohio Baseball


We have a universal start date for our Midwest Ohio Baseball League contracts so that everyone is on the same schedule.  This prevents a team from trying to corner the market on players simply by having early tryouts and forcing players and parents into swift decisions without allowing other teams tryouts. 


The purpose of the universal start date is to eliminate or at least reduce the pressure on families to commit and commit now without the opportunity to see what else is out there.  This is the only method we know to reduce this pressure on families.  People should have the opportunity to go through the tryout process without feeling substantial pressure to sign on the dotted line.


Frankly, if families who commit to play for your team in July or August, cannot abide by that commitment for the next month or so, than they are not really committed to your team.


You may have whatever internal paperwork or agreements you want, but the league contract will be available for everyone on September 1.  These contracts are valid from September 1 to August 31st or the last day of the teams’ scheduled season, including any end of season tournaments or World Series events.


Bat Restriction Clarification for 2018:


USA Baseball has been the governing body for amateur baseball.  And until now, all associations, affiliations and leagues have followed their guidance and implemented their suggestions.  With the proposed bat rule changes effective 2018, many of us understood that the move was based on player safety. 
Thus, almost all organizations of all kinds, except USSSA, lined up initially to follow USA Baseball.

Since then we have learned that the move was NOT player safety related and there is a significant split among organizations regarding bat rules.

The Midwest Ohio Baseball League will allow both the USSSA, USA and BPF 1.15 bats whose markings are permanent and made by the manufacturer for league play in 2018.


Attached is a much more detailed bat regulations report which will be put into the League rules effective September 1, 2017.


Please review the attached carefully.  The challenge for teams, coaches, and parents will be to conform to the various bat rules at tournaments etc. until a unified position is taken.




We tried to move to a Sports Engine website, but after two months of working with them, it became obvious that their current platform, which is great for teams, was not able to be adjusted to be a coach driven platform.  We believe that having the process in the hands of coaches, rather than players and parents. 


We have offered to assist Sports Engine in producing a coach driven, league based platform by working together.  However, until they have a platform that allows all of the coach and league administrative functionality that we need, we will not be able to move forward with them.


Thank you to those who recommended Sports Engine.  They have a terrific team/organization platform but just could not adjust it to meet our needs.


We have revised and are in the process of updating the current Midwest Ohio Baseball website.


The website is up and running right now.


Returning teams may access the site with your logins and passwords from 2017.  New teams should click on the new team registration and complete it to gain access to the site.


Player contracts can now be sent to players.


All important dates are on the website or will be updated shortly.


We are in process of merging the pitching and bat rules into the total rules and working to make the wording on the rules more easily understandable.  Those changes will be updated, along with sections of the website, over the next few weeks.


The website will be operational throughout these updates.  Please check it regularly for information.


We look forward to a productive, fun and exciting 2018 season.


Wade Westfall, President

Midwest Ohio Softball League

 The Midwest Ohio Softball League will hold its inaugural season in the spring of 2018. In affiliation with the Midwest Ohio Baseball League, the Midwest Ohio Softball League was formed to serve the local youth looking for a more competitive environment.

The format of the organization will enable coaches to develop their players’ skills to prepare them for successful high school, and potentially, college competition. Thus, the format is designed to allow youth in the area the opportunity to play the highest appropriate level of competition available.

The league is broken into four age groups: 8 and under, 10 and under, 12 and under, and 14 and under. This allows our players to be pushed by competition to be the best they can. The league will continue to try to meet the needs of the coaches, players and parents who love baseball.

Membership is selective but may not be discriminatory. Anyone agreeing to these principles is welcome to apply for membership.

For more information please visit: www.MidwestOhioSoftballLeague.com or contact Wade Westfall, by phone 937-672-1260 or email@ wade8276@yahoo.com.
