2020 Summer Baseball Registration - June 6- 14 

Baseball is back for a summer season (potential start date late June until mid to late August).

Baseball Manitoba's return to train and play document (http://www.baseballmanitoba.ca/administration/registration/return-play-document) was approved by Public Health and includes many new rules that all players, team personnel, and spectators must adhere to.  This is not only in the best interest of all of us but is necessary for baseball to continue to be a part of Phase 2 within the Province's Restoring Safe Services and to avoid possible fines from Public Health Officers.  I ask that all parents read the document.  Some new rules include:

  • Physical distancing for all players, team personnel and spectators

  • Limit of 50 people per game -this will mean a MAXIMUM of ONE parent/spectator per player for 11u and older

  • Every player requires her/his own bat (see document below for bat sizes for players) 

  • Catcher's equipment will not be shared

  • No seeds, gum, food, etc.  Everyone should have their own bottle(s) of water.

  • Players, team personnel, spectators are asked not to come to games or practices if they are experiencing any symptoms of feeling unwell and if anyone in their family is ill or has been diagnosed with COVID-19

  • Extra roles for volunteers as health and safety co-ordinators for players and spectators and an equipment disinfector 

  • Hand sanitizing before, after, and during games and practices

  • Disinfecting balls and bases before and after games and practices

PLEASE NOTE- ALL TEAMS WILL NEED AT LEAST 4 VOLUNTEERS - COACH, PLAYER HEALTH AND SAFETY CO-ORDINATOR, SPECTATOR HEALTH AND SAFETY CO-ORDINATOR AND EQUIPMENT DISINFECTOR.  NO TEAM WILL PLAY WITHOUT THESE 4 VOLUNTEER POSITIONS FILLED BY 4 SEPARATE INDIVIDUALS.  SEE THE LINKS BELOW FOR A DRAFT OF THE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE NEW POSITIONS.

One should expect a weekly practice for 11u and older, that day would have to be determined after games are scheduled as we have many limitations on diamonds due to the public gathering rules.  

AA Tryouts - Tentative dates for outdoor try-outs are JUNE 15 & 16 (there will be no charge for try-outs)

All baseball players must re-register for the summer season and read and sign the new COVID-19 waiver from Baseball Manitoba.  Fees will remain the same so any cheques dropped off for the spring registration are still in possession.  However, I would like jersey deposit cheques now ($50, made out to TCC dated September 1, 2020) for all players 11u and older.  Registration will open on June 6 and close on June 14.  Registration is NOT complete until you have dropped off a cheque for the baseball fee and the jersey deposit at 31 Dunbar Crescent.  If you registration is not complete by June 14th then you will be placed on a waitlist once your registration is complete.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Rally Cap 7U

Rally Cap runs Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday 

Rally Cap features three teams of six players (+/-) playing at the same diamond for 75 minutes.

Two teams play baseball in the infield while the third team practices skills in the outfield.

After 20 minutes, the teams rotate, and at the end of the night each team has played two 20-minute games and had one practice.

Strong parent involvement is encouraged to help keep the players engaged and developing. It is suggested that each team have one or two coaches, however all parents are welcome and encouraged to come on the field of play.

Those wishing to coach can sign up for a coach clinic to prepare them for the season. All coaches must complete the Respect in Sport training from Sport Manitoba. The course is free, online and can be completed at your own pace at https://sportmanitoba.respectgroupinc.com/secure/ .

All players are expected to have a baseball glove, batting helmet and runners (cleats are not necessary). Long pants must be worn (no shorts) but baseball pants are not mandatory. Players will be provided with a t shirt and cap which they can keep.

 

Grand Slam 9u

Played on Monday and Wednesday, may require the occasional Sunday evening depending on numbers.

The program is designed with small teams, 6 players, playing infield with no outfielders.

The inning is considered complete when all batters have come to the plate.

Each batter will receive a set number of pitches from the pitching machine. If a ball is not put in play then a tee is brought to home plate and the batter hits off the tee. The goal at this level is to put the ball in play.

Defensive outs are not tallied as all batters bat each inning, but players that are put out must return to their dugout.

Base runners do not advance on overthrows.

No bunting or stealing.

All games will start at 6:30 p.m. The game has a time limit of 1 hour.

Coaches are encouraged to have their players play a different position in each inning of play.

No league standings are kept.

All players are expected to have a baseball glove, batting helmet and runners (cleats are not necessary). Long pants must be worn (no shorts). Baseball pants (grey) are recommended but not mandatory. A $50 deposit cheque payable to “Tuxedo Community Centre” is required to receive the player’s jersey. This cheque will be destroyed upon return of the jersey at the end of the season. Players will be provided with a cap which they can keep.

Parent volunteers are needed for coaching. There will be a coaching clinic for Grand Slam coaches before the start of the season. All coaches must complete the Respect in Sport training from Sport Manitoba. The course is free, online and can be completed at your own pace at https://sportmanitoba.respectgroupinc.com/secure/

 

11u 

Played on Tuesday and Thursday, may require the occasional Sunday evening depending on numbers.

11u baseball combines the ages of 10 and 11 year olds. It is very common for first time players to begin playing at the 11u level. The AA and A teams are made based on the results of the pre-season tryouts, which are open to all registered 11u players.

Games start at 6:30 pm and run about 2 hours or 6 innings.

Most coaches prefer players to arrive about 15 minutes early for a pre-game warm-up, AA may request a 30 minute pre-game warm-up.

Team practices will be determined by the coaches. Teams are encouraged to practice weekly, in addition to the two games.

There is a Baseball Manitoba sponsored 11u A tournament during the season.

At 11u, umpires are introduced and players begin to learn the art of pitching (the pitch count rule is enforced). If four balls are thrown, the coach will soft toss to the batter to encourage hitting and putting the ball into play. Players are encouraged to learn all positions and really get a feel for the game.

Parent volunteers are needed for coaching. At least one coach on the team needs to have coaching certification by the playoffs. All coaches must complete the Respect in Sport training from Sport Manitoba. The course is free, online and can be completed at your own pace at https://sportmanitoba.respectgroupinc.com/secure/ . Parent involvement is needed beyond coaching as score keeping and pitch counting is required for each game.

All players are expected to have a baseball glove, batting helmet, runners (cleats are not necessary in A level) and grey baseball pants. Players may prefer to have their own bat and batting gloves. A $50 deposit cheque payable to "Tuxedo Community Centre" is required to receive the player's jersey. This cheque will be destroyed upon return of the jersey at the end of the season. Players will be provided with a cap which they can keep. Each team will have bats and catcher’s equipment for the players to use.

Players will be provided with a cap which they can keep. Each team will have bats and catcher’s equipment for the players to use.
