Coaching Information 

Thank you, Coaches! We couldn't do it without you!

Batting Cages

Sign up sheets will be in the mailbox by the cages on Mondays beginning April 15th.
Slots will run Monday-Sunday.
Coaches are allowed 2 one hour slots per team per week.
Please be mindful of the time & allow the next coach to begin use at their reserved time.


Fields are available for practice on a "first come, first served" basis. There is no longer priority use by any league on any field. (Highland North is now available for baseball teams as well as softball teams.) Bronco field is not a practice field- do not practice on Bronco.

If the fields are wet, STAY OFF! 
If games have been cancelled due to poor field conditions, you are not permitted to use them for practice.

Shetland teams should move to a grassy area if an older team would like to pracitce on a field.

The League has implemented a "Code of Conduct" policy that all parents, players and coaches must adhere to. Conduct forms must be signed by all parents, players and coaches by April 20, 2013 and returned to the commissioner of your league. Games will not be played until your signed sheet has been returned to your commissioner. For more details, please contact your appropriate league commissioner.

Background Checks
All Managers & Coaches are required to submit a background check.

Please report umpire "no-shows" to Allison Radkay at
708-421-2213 as soon as possible. Umpires are scheduled to arrive at games 15 minutes prior to the start of each game. On weekends please keep in mind that umpires often ump back-to-back games at different fields and being at your game 15 minutes prior to the start is not always possible.
