Bat Regulations - 2012 Rule Changes
Updated 3/16/2012

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.  ALSO: (3/16/2012) Update on Nike and Marucci bats that FAILED standards and will be ineligible for use in Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken play!

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.
