New Game(s) Added to Game Schedule

Updated Sunday April 28, 2019 by OYO.

We know the rain and wet field conditions have left you and your ballplayer disappointed about the recent cancellations. OYO's volunteer board members -- many of who double up as coaches -- are also disappointed about the cancellations.

When we knew there was a real possibility for canceling games again this past Saturday, our volunteers started working ahead to develop a Plan B option.

We have a Rainout Policy that documents a process of scheduling 2-3 extra games for each team rather than try to scramble and reschedule games lost due to rain or poor field conditions. However, the wet start to the season has used up those "reserves" quickly. So, considering the field space luxury afforeded us this season, the OYO Executive Board voted to suspend the Rainout Policy and reschedule 1-2 games for each team in all our 12 and under divisions. In doing so, we used the following guidelines to help maintain the existing schedule:

  • All original schedules and game times were not affected (but a few field assignments may have been tweaked)
  • All rescheduled games will be played between May 3-23
  • All Tee Ball and Junior Rookie teams are assigned one additional game during the week
  • All Rookie, Minor, Super Major baseball teams are assigned two additional games (either during the week or on a Saturday)
  • All 8U, 10U, 12U Softball teams are assigned two additional games (either during the week or on a Saturday)
  • If you received an additional Saturday game, then your team likely plays a "split doubleheader" (meaning your games could be played with 1-2 game slots in between) 
  • No additional games will be rescheduled/scheduled to offset any future rainouts 
  • REMINDER: It is important for all parents on each team to not only take care of the fields following their games but also to arrive early to make fields playable when it rains within 24 hours of your team's game
