Scheduling of Games/Umpires

Coaches, We have been disussing the declining umpire numbers for several years now. 

With the eclipse and steady rain over the past several weeks and the need for umpire schedulers to prioritize HS games, effective immediately all make-up games need to be rescheduled after May 12th.  

Until then make sure you coordinate with umpire schedulers on current games and rescheduling of games to make sure they have umpires available; do not assume they can cover games.  Please communicate during this time.  

Any questions contact the league.

Midwest Partnering with Local Communities

Coaches:

The upcoming season marks the 32nd 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 2022 season which will enhance this Prime Directive:

   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.  
    The Midwest Ohio Baseball League is partnering with these communities to provide game and practice fields for those teams who need or want it.
The Midwest Ohio Baseball League will be bringing Professional Baseball Skills Camps to the Miami Valley.

 

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

 

  




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.

Sincerely,

Wade Westfall
