Final Summer Fest Bracket
Lost & Found
Call 608.217.9186 or email email@example.com if you've lost something at the field, or if you found something as well.
NEW 8/22/2013...You can drop found items off at Oregon Pool office and check there as well if you lost something!!
Base stealing is not allowed. Leading off is not allowed. The base runner may leave the base only when the batter makes contact with the ball. There is no courtesy step. If the runner leaves the base without batter contact with the ball (fair or foul), the runner is out.
Each team will begin extra innings with a baserunner at 2nd base. The runner shall be the batter whom made last out in the previous inning.
Runner has mat. Catcher has plate. No collisions. Runner must be tagged out on a non-force out play to be called out.
Drink Beer at Softball? Throw Cans Away! Beer - ...tastes great on these warm summer nights. Keep cans and bottles out of the dugouts/field. The village allows us to drink beer at the park. Don't endanger this privilege.
The Village of Oregon Public Works staff are the ones that show up at the park every morning after the games and are having to clean up the messes that are being left on the picnic tables, bleachers, dugouts, and the ground. If our leagues cannot be responsible enough to simply throw our garbage in the trash cans only a few feet away, they will request that the Village Board ban alcohol from the parks.
Throw your cans/bottles/garbage in the trash cans and do not bring alcohol into the dugouts/fields!
If you see someone leaving their beer cans laying around, let them know they will be losing the right to drink very soon if they cannot figure this out.
What to do if the other team is using what you think is an illegal bat: If a batter comes to bat without a sticker on the bat, don't pitch! Inform him or her and their manager that only labeled bats are legal. If you think a labeled bat is illegal, send the bat info (brand, model, model number) to firstname.lastname@example.org to research. ASA has banned some bats that were legal last year, so it can happen. The sticker will be removed from that bat.
Last team out is responsible to close out - Here's how...Open the grey utility box on the eastern side of the fieldhouse. Pull the four levers down and the lights go off! Close the door and LOCK it. That's it!
Mats need to be put away after final games. Home teams need to slide those under the fieldhouse door at the end of the night.
Managers, if you need a key to open and to shut down at night, call me, 608-217-9186.
Managers and players please use common sense when there are storms in the area. Players have the right to safety, to leave the game when dangerous weather is in the area. The manager can then call for a postponement and the game can be made up later (if less than 5 innings) where it left off (see OASA Rule #26).
Here are the ASA guidelines on lightning: www.asasoftball.com
The manager of the Oregon Community Pool asked me to post this. Parking in the circle by the pool is illegal and could get you a ticket! The police will be enforcing this as this is used by the fire department for emergencies.
Call rainout number after 6pm.
Watch here for Rain-Out notices during the season. Rain-outs will be posted by 6pm (or earlier if possible) on the day of games. Assume games are on unless cancellation is posted here. You can also call the Rain-Out line at 217-9186.
Please never try to squeegy or dig canals to drain the fields, this only creates valleys and lips and causes more puddling at the next rain. We have groundskeepers who will use siphon pumps and grooming tools if the soaking is minimal.
