Thursday, March 20th 7:30pm @SPFHS Main Cafeteria
There will be a house league Managers & Coaches meeting on Thursday, March 20th 2014 starting at 7:30pm @SPFHS Main Cafeteria. All house league Managers and their Coaches are asked to attend for the following divisions:
- Tee Ball (Pre-K & K)
- Minors-A (1st Grade)
- Minors-AA (2nd Grade)
- Minors-AAA (3rd & 4th Grade)
- Majors (5th & 6th Grade)

The agenda calls for a general presentation of the SPFBL program by various board members, followed by breakout sessions by division led by the appropriate Division Vice President. Again this is for all Managers and all Coaches (i.e. assistants). If you are a Manager, please make sure you attend, or if you can't, please ensure that at least one (hopefully more) of your Coaches are present as your designate(s) so they can fill you in.
While the meeting is primarily for the 2014 Managers and their coaching staffs, parents are also welcome to attend if interested. See you on the 20th!

Bat Regulations - 2012 Rule Changes
In 2012, SPFYBA will permit the use of bats that meet the standard of Babe Ruth League / Cal Ripken. This is a change from recent years. However bat availability and additional research on the subject has brought the Executive Board to the conclusion that in 2012 we will follow the Babe Ruth standard.

SPFBL Ballfield Hotline
For Field Status due to Inclement Weather
Please check the ballfield hotline if weather is questionable. Call 908-322-6700 x226. PLEASE NOTE:
- Updated by the Township of Scotch Plains by 3pm weekdays, and as needed on weekends.
- Refers ONLY to SCOTCH PLAINS TOWNSHIP REC fields (Memorial, Brookside, Rt. 22, VOTECH, Farley, etc.), FANWOOD BOROUGH REC fields (LaGrande, Forest Road Park, Watson Rd Basin, etc.) and BOARD OF EDUCATION fields (SPFHS, Terrill Middle, Park Middle, etc.).
- BOOTH FIELD IS ENTIRELY OWNED AND OPERATED BY SPFBL. IT ALSO HAS INCREDIBLE DRAINAGE. So it is not unusual for the town and board of ed to close all of their fields, and we still play on Booth Field. Please check the website for updates on the condition of Booth Field.
No Parking on Valley Road
Violators may be ticketed
Everyone should be reminded that there is No Parking on Valley Road. This includes anywhere near the parking lot and anywhere near the batting cages. Coaches should drop off equipment and park in the lot. No parking in the little drive up area by the cages. Parents may NOT wait outside the cages in their car for players. Please adhere to these rules. Our neighbors have been patient with us, and we don’t want to see anyone issued a parking summons. THANK YOU!!
