2017 OYBL Senior Division for players 13-16yrs old

In 2017, OYBL will be bringing back a Senior Division for players 13-16yrs old (as of 4/30/17).  We are hoping to have 5-6 teams and will be drawing kids from Garrett County and the neighboring WV counties of Grant and Preston. 

Dink Bennett, who has been a huge part of Oakland baseball for 20+ years, will oversee the Senior Division.  Former Southern High Head Coach Jim Bosley is also going to help with the division.  He will coach a league sponsored travel team in a tournament in Bridgeport, WV next summer.  Current Southern High Head Coach/ former President of OYBL, Danny Holler, and Southern High School Coach/ former President of OYBL, Bill Bittinger, will also be helping to run the league. 

As an organization, we feel a local league serves our area better than being part of Hot Stove which is centralized around the Cumberland area.  All games will be played in Oakland at Broadford Park.  No regular season games will be scheduled on the weekends (make up games may be played on the weekend if necessary).  2 games will be played per evening with a 2h15m time limit with a minimum playing time of 2 innings/1 at bat per game not per week as it is in Hot Stove. 

OYBL will also be putting in a separate batting cage near the Senior Division field in the Spring of 2017 dedicated to the Senior Division.  We will also be purchasing new gear.

The main goal of transitioning from Hot Stove to a local league is to make baseball more accessible for more kids ages 13-16 in our local area eliminating the time and financial strain of traveling over an hour to play, sometimes where 2 teams from Oakland would be scheduled to play each other in Cumberland at the Hot Stove Complex.

Sign ups for the Senior Division will be held the first weekend of March 2017 at the Oakland Armory.  We will be putting an ad in the paper and handing out flyers at the schools in February as a reminder.  The registration fee will be the same as the rest of our divisions, $60.

If you would like more information, please contact Dink Bennett at 301-616-1424.  Also, there will be a new draft for all the teams.  If you would like to manage one of the new teams, please contact Dink Bennett as well. 

Sincerely,

Oakland Youth Baseball League, Board of Directors

Future Major Leaguers?

What a fantastic group picture of both teams taken by Dave Lebon after last night's 11-12 all star game. It was a perfect end to another great season. Just a bunch of boys smiling after a baseball game. Doesn't get any better than that. Have a great summer from OYBL!

Thanks to all who purchased tickets.  All of the money we raise 100% goes to support OYBL and it's players.  OYBL is a self sufficient non profit organization that is not subsidized by any town or goverment agency or school system.  We are 100% responsible for the maintainence, repairs and improvements for our 3 fields and grounds.  This year we were able to put $4000 into new fencing at the hot stove field.  That wouldn't be possible without our gracious sponsors, volunteeers and parents hard work and fundraising. 

Sincerely,

Joe Healy, OYBL President
