Home Run Rule Changed

Social Challenge
The League is presenting a Social Challenge to all teams. The team that brings the most members and guests to the sponsor lunches will be declared the winners. The League will cover the cost of the Closing Breakfast for that team's players who attended the lunches.
The RA Fieldhouse gives us a percentage back of what we spend so please remember to let them know that you are with our league whenever you go there. Tell your server that Steve Kelly sent you.

Batting Practice
There is batting practice every Thursday morning at 9:30 at Hampton Park. Thanks to Gary Fleming for coordinating BP Thursdays.

Home Runs
The Homerun trophy is awarded for the most HRs hit over the fence during the regular season. Make sure your scorekeeper/captain reports yours, each game.

Rainouts
In case of rain an email will be sent out on gameday morning by 8:00. Please show up at the RA if you haven't heard anything either from the league or your Captain. It may be raining at your house but not at the RA. Games that have been rained out are normally played on Wednesday if the diamonds are available.

Email Communication
Email is the primary communication method of the league. If you are not getting email notices, or if you know of anyone who should be getting them, please let the league know. ottawa60plusslopitch@gmail.com
