On Sunday April 12th all youth baseball participants in uniform will be able to take part in a special pregame parade at the ballpark in Arlington! Parade participants should report to the third base ramp just inside the Third Base Gate at least one and a half hours prior to the start of the game. No player autographs. Parents/Guardians will be asked to wait for their children at the ramp outside of Section 9. Parade participants and coaches looking to participate in parade must wear team uniforms. After reviewing the flyers below you can call STEPHEN COTHRAN: 817 622-7952 directly with the Texas Rangers if you have any questions.

Now that GAMES have officially resumed we wanted to send out a few important reminders:
Please remember to remove bases after your game if you are the last game of the day or evening. As a general rule, always pull the bases unless there are teams there ready to play another scheduled game, or ready to conduct a scheduled practice.
Please remember that game fields at Tiger, Hilltop and Glenwick will NOT be available for practices on Friday nights if there are games scheduled for Saturday mornings. (See #3.) All game fields will be prepped and locked by the TOFM on Friday’s and unlocked by FMYSA on Saturday morning. You may not practice on a field that is “prepped” for games. (Even if it is not locked. If it is prepped for a game, then it’s not available for a practice. Games have priority over practice.)
Critical --- Please remember to check the MASTER WEEKLY SCHEDULE each Monday for scheduled games for the coming week/weekend.

Select Master Game Schedule
All scheduled games for the upcoming week will be listed here. It is uploaded each Monday for the coming week.
Given the current rainouts and reschedules, there may be times when things change with very short notice – our schedulers will do their best to keep the Master Weekly Schedule updated, but please bear with us regarding reschedules as there are a tremendous amount of moving parts involved.
Non usage of scheduled field time. If you are NOT going to use a scheduled practice slot, please remember to email email@example.com as there is usually a list of teams that are waiting in the wings that are eager to practice. If you notify me, then I can make sure the field gets used by a fellow FMYSA sanctioned team in need.
Batting Cage practice slots must yield to teams needing the cages to prepare for games. There is signage located at all batting cages stating this, so please make sure and abide by this rule.
Please report any unauthorized usage to firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text me at 214.538.7755.
For alternate practice fields you can email me at email@example.com. Email only as I must have my laptop up to be able to conduct a field search.
I know you guys all know this, but please understand that we are simply maxed out on game fields, so most alternative fields we will have to provide as options at this time for practices will be our ancillary non-game fields.
We will always do the best we can for you, but we have limited inventory, so please be patient as work on your behalf to find alternate practice fields.
Thank you for all you do as coaches!

FMYSA General Manager
Important reminder regarding usage of the FMYSA Batting Cages:
#1. Teams with games always have first priority for usage of the batting cages
#2. Teams with scheduled cage time may use the batting cages if no teams with games are using the cages
#3. FMYSA "walk-ups". Walk-up usage of the batting cages by FMYSA members is allowed if no teams are using the cages to warm up for games or for scheduled practices
The image above is of the signage that is posted at all FMYSA Batting Cages. Thank you for your cooperation regarding this FMYSA protocol.
