Reporting Games to Warren Times Observer

Coaches - here are 3 different ways to report your games to the newspaper.  (T-ball is the only division that does not report their games)  For the training division, the home team usually reports the game. For all other divisions the winning team reports the games. 

Game Cancellation Protocol

It is the responsibility of the Home Team Coach to cancel a game:
  • Call and notify the Visting Team Coach
  • Call and notify the Umpire for your game (MUST DO BY 5:00pm)
  • Call your players 
  • Text Angie Hamilton @ 688-1655 so she can cancel concession stand workers
  • To reschedule games please e-mail Jeff Berdine (jnberdine@atlanticbb.net).
  • Before e-mailing Jeff, view "YBSA Master Schedule" to find available fields and dates

Rescheduling Games

Coaches:  Use master schedule to find available fields and dates to schedule make-up games.....check with opposing coach, find a field to use...then you can e-mail Jeff Berdine with your Division, Game #, Proposed Date, Time and Field... to reserve that field, and get your game added to the master schedule.  You will also have to find an umpire for that game...which could be the same ump that was supposed to do your original game.    (jnberdine@atlanticbb.net)
