2021 FYB Announcements
Due to Cal Ripken changes, the FYB board voted to change from machine pitch to coach pitch in our 7U & 8U leagues effective spring 2020. Effective spring 2021 batters ages 7-12 can now wear a batting helmet face mask or a C-flap. Masks or C-flaps are not required in the 5-6U T-ball league.
The FYB Board voted to split the T-Ball League into two leagues - a five year old league & a six year old league. We will also be selecting an All Star team from the six year old division.
***************************Bat rule change effective January 1st 2018***********************
There will be a bat change effective the upcoming season. Our park & pretty much all youth parks in America will be changing to the new USA Baseball bat standard. All bats used in our park, for all ages, will be required to have the USA stamp/logo on the bat. For more information visit https://usabat.com/about/
This season promises to be another great year in the history of Fairhope Youth Baseball. FYB is one of the most respected youth sports programs in the State of Alabama, and for many years has provided a wonderful environment for the development and encouragement of nearly 600 young boys and girls in our community. With so many negative images influencing our children today, it is more important than ever to provide healthy role models and positive influences. Without the support of our sponsors, we could never make this happen. FYB is an all volunteer organization and we depend on outstanding sponsors to make our baseball program successful. Our sponsors allow us to make park improvements, purchase equipment and provide many of the other necessary items not covered by player registration fees.
Please take an opportunity to look over the enclosed Sponsorship information, I’m sure there is a level that will meet your needs and allow your business an opportunity to be seen by potential patrons you ordinarily may not have access to. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call any of the contacts listed in the package. We thank you for your consideration and look forward to partnering with you to promote the wonderful experience of youth sports.
* Fairhope Youth Baseball Board of Directors has voted to allow players to play in the league one level higher than the level designated by their date of birth. The player must have played at least one year in the appropriate league before being eligible for the next level. Parents must contact the League President of the higher league before such move can be made.
