Reminder to all baseball and softball teams (recreational and select) --- Bakersfield Park is hosting the Tara Sawyer Tournament 9/30 - 10/2 and will be CLOSED for practices on those dates. Game play is moved to other facilities, so make sure and check the Weekly Master Schedule (located on the "Fields" tab).
Gerault Park Construction Project --- Gerault Park is getting a face lift as all fencing will be replaced and new fence toppers installed, etc. The project begins Monday, 9/26, and will last approximately 4-6 weeks (depending on weather, etc.). THIS WILL IMPACT FMYSA'S PRACTICE SCHEDULE, SO MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE WEBSITE "FIELD STATUS" BEFORE HEADING OUT TO PRACTICE AT GERAULT PARK.

Dear Friend’s & Families of FMYSA,
The November 6th FMYSA Board elections are fast approaching.
This is my last year as President and will not be running for President, but will be here to help in any way I can, maybe even fill a different position. I have a great passion for FMYSA and I am very proud of our association and all the people in and around it.
I want to thank my wife Barb for allowing me to serve FMYSA for 14 years in one capacity or another. I also want to thank Amy Burwell & Tracy Black for their outstanding dedication and support as they are the true backbone to FMYSA. To all the Board Members, Directors, and Coaches, without all your time & sacrifices we would not have been able to do all the things we have done. I know it is not easy to be a volunteer when you try so hard & give up your valuable time and it does not seem to be enough but remember (Tough Times Never Last; Tough People Do!)
With all that being said we have some open board positions that we will need good people to fill.
If interested or any questions please feel free to contact me or any other Board Member, we also have a copy of the (FMYSA Roles & Responsibilities) & (FMYSA By-laws) click on the “about” tab on the website.
2.05 Each member shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote of the members, provided that only those members of record thirty (30) days prior to the date of a meeting of the general membership may vote on matters submitted to a vote at such meeting. No individual, whether a natural person or otherwise, is entitled to more than one membership vote for any matter submitted to a vote of the members.
Nomination of Directors
3.07 A nominating committee, which shall consist of at least three people appointed by a majority vote of the Board of Directors, shall consider possible nominees for all Board of Director positions and make nominations for each election of Directors for the following year. The Nominating Committee shall be formed no later than 60 days prior to the Annual Meeting, and shall accept Board applications (from new and returning applicants) until 30 days before the Annual Meeting. While the Board of Directors may vote to approve late applicants within 30 days of the Annual Meeting, no applicant shall be accepted less than 15 days before the Annual Meeting.
The Nominating Committee is responsible for receiving Board of Director applications, and interviewing each applicant. The Nominating Committee must ensure that applicants are qualified for the position they are seeking, and that they understand the scope and importance of that role. Based on that discussion, the Nominating Committee will nominate applicants for each of the Board positions. Those nominations will be available no fewer than 7 days prior to the Annual Meeting.
Election of Directors
3.08 A person who meets any qualification requirements to be a member of the Board of Directors and who has been duly nominated by the nominating committee may be elected as a Director. The Directors shall be elected as follows: Directors shall be elected pursuant to a majority vote of the General Membership at the Annual Meeting of the General Membership.
God Bless you and your families.
