Midwest Ohio Youth Sports Leagues ...."A Better Way to Play"


League News

 Coaches:

 
In 2017, Senate Bill 534 was passed and signed in February 2018 by President Trump.  This bill is designed to protect young athletes from abuse of all kinds.  This law is applicable to all youth sports teams, organizations and leagues.  Originally, we thought it was going to be effective in 2020, but now it is effective for the 2019 season.
 
We are currently working through the requirements with our legal advisers.  There is an important USA Baseball meeting Tuesday which will hopefully shed more light on the implementation of methods to be compliant with the law for each team, program and league.  
 
Attached is a brief outline about Senate Bill 534 along with a summary of the practical nature of implementing.  We will know more very soon.
 
It appears that Mandatory background checks are going to be required for the 2019 season.  They will be focused on sexual deviance, violent offenses and DUI offenses.  They will be looking for serious offenses not minor offenses, speeding etc.
 
Those who work in professions where background checks are part of their requirements will not have to duplicate those checks.
 
We are looking for clarification about the options for verification of compliance with background checks, as well as the Abuse Awareness testing.  Specifically, we are looking to see how the requirements for each team, organization and league can be combined to simplify all of our lives.
 
Obviously, this along with the concussion training and Lindsay's Law training can be a pain.  However, this information has been good for us to know and has made us more prepared to help our players in the event of a problem.  This training will do the same.
 
We will be in touch very shortly after we have had a chance to debrief following the USA Baseball meeting.  
 
Sincerely,
 
Wade Westfall
Midwest Ohio Baseball LLC

Midwest Ohio Baseball 2018 Year End Letter

Registration for the 2019 season is now open. Tryout information from 2018 has been removed, coaches can register and post their current tryout information now.



Coaches and Parents:
 
The 2018 playing season within the League has now come to end.  However, if your team continues to play, your contract with them remains in effect until August 31st when our contracts end for 2018.  Your 2018 contract is completed when your team completes play in 2018 or August 31st, whichever comes first.
 
The teams in the league played more than 10,000 games involving more than 3000 players. 
 
The vast majority of our players, coaches, and parents understand that the purpose of the League, and everything that is done, is for young people to learn about life and become better baseball players and better people.  This should drive all that we do within the League.
 
Contract Date for Midwest Ohio Baseball is September 1
 
We have a universal start date for our Midwest Ohio Baseball League contracts so that everyone is on the same schedule.  This prevents a team from trying to corner the market on players simply by having early tryouts and forcing players and parents into swift decisions without allowing other teams' tryouts. 
 
The purpose of the universal start date is to eliminate or at least reduce the pressure on families to commit and commit now without the opportunity to see what else is out there.  This is the only method we know to reduce this pressure on families.  People should have the opportunity to go through the tryout process without feeling substantial pressure to sign on the dotted line.
 
Frankly, if families who commit to play for your team in July or August, cannot abide by that commitment for the next month or so, than they are not really committed to your team.
 
You may have whatever internal paperwork or agreements you want, but the league contract will be available for everyone on September 1.  These contracts are valid from September 1 to August 31st or the last day of the teams' scheduled season, including any end of season tournaments or World Series events.
 
Player contracts can be sent to players beginning September 1.
 
 
Bat Restriction Clarification for 2019:

At this time, there is no intention to make any changes to the bat rules, unless and until, USA Baseball and USSSA Baseball come up with a unified bat position.
 
All bats, whether USSSA or USA Baseball, with the appropriate label will be legal for play in Midwest Ohio Baseball.
 
However, if a bat is deemed illegal by USA Baseball or USSSA baseball, that bat will automatically be considered illegal for play in Midwest Ohio Baseball.  A bat which is subsequently re-instated then it is also re-instated for play in Midwest Ohio Baseball.
 
The challenge for the League, MWOB teams, coaches, and parents will be to conform to the various bat rules at tournaments etc. until a unified position is taken.
 
Early Registration for 2019 and tryout postings

Returning teams may access the site with your logins and passwords from 2018.  New teams should click on the new team registration and complete it to gain access to the site.
 
All important dates are on the website or will be updated shortly.
 
We look forward to a productive, fun and exciting 2019 season.
 
Sincerely,

Wade Westfall, President

Midwest Ohio Softball League

 The Midwest Ohio Softball League will hold its inaugural season in the spring of 2018. In affiliation with the Midwest Ohio Baseball League, the Midwest Ohio Softball League was formed to serve the local youth looking for a more competitive environment.

The format of the organization will enable coaches to develop their players’ skills to prepare them for successful high school, and potentially, college competition. Thus, the format is designed to allow youth in the area the opportunity to play the highest appropriate level of competition available.

The league is broken into four age groups: 8 and under, 10 and under, 12 and under, and 14 and under. This allows our players to be pushed by competition to be the best they can. The league will continue to try to meet the needs of the coaches, players and parents who love baseball.

Membership is selective but may not be discriminatory. Anyone agreeing to these principles is welcome to apply for membership.

For more information please visit: www.MidwestOhioSoftballLeague.com or contact Wade Westfall, by phone 937-672-1260 or email@ wade8276@yahoo.com.
