Given the dry air and strong winds, we believe that all fields will be available for games, scrimmages and practices this evening. However, the forecast calls for cold temperatures and very low wind chills once the sun goes down. League officials will be monitoring the temperatures this evening, and will be on site to make cancellations as necessary should we determine that it's simply too cold to proceed.
We understand that this may be frustrating, but it is in the best interest of the children.
The 7th Annual Beyond the Bases equipment sale will be held on March 7th next to Mustang 2. Beyond the Bases in a non-profit organization dedicated to getting players equipment they need to play the game. Funds generated by the sale are generously given to OHYSA and other youth sports organizations to off-set playing costs through scholarships and financial assistance.
Beyond the Bases will also be hosting the MLB Pitch, Hit, and Run® competition after Opening Day Baseball ceremonies on March 28th. Pitch, Hit & Run is a nationwide competition sponsored by Major League Baseball that gives boys and girls ages 7-14 the opportunity to show off their baseball and softball skills and the opportunity to advance to play at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
