Rec Leagues

Updated Monday January 21, 2019 by OYO.

The following structure has been adopted by the OYO Board of Directors for our in-house program in conjunction with Cal Ripken and IHSAABaseball. It is our intent to match the players by age. We feel placing players in their correct age level offers the best possible experience for all involved.

Age cut-offs for the 2019 seasons are as follows:

  • Spring Ball – All baseball players are eligible for the league based on their age as of April 30, 2019
  • Fall Ball - All baseball players are encouraged to play in the league they will participate in the following spring and should base their registration on their age of as of April 30, 2020.

A graphical summary is provided below, and each individual league page provides additional perspective about the rules and regulations for that league.
