Starting Friday June 28 the field status line and the website field status will not be operational. For all weekdays during that period call 703-324-5264 after 3:00pm. Listen for Ossian field #2. If it is open you must report to the field and the umpire will have the final determination if the games can be played. There are no field status updates after 3:00 so there is no need to call again if the weather conditions change. For Sunday June 30 you must report to the field and the umpire will make the decision.
O5-30-2013. . . . . . . Official Softballs for FCCSL
One team attempted to use one of the white covered balls recently. The only balls permitted for use in FCCSL games are the optic balls provided by the League at the Manager’s Meeting in March. The balls were covered at that same meeting so there is no valid reason for not knowing. 2010 was the last year the white cover balls were legal. It was a transition year when both the white and yellow balls were OK.
O5-30-2013 . . . . . . .Forfeits
No one likes to forfeit. Nevertheless, it happens to us all. Not having enough players is not a valid reason to reschedule games. If you know you will forfeit, it is courteous to notify the other manager in advance and let the League know also.
