Fall Ball Baseball Signups

We’re excited to report that we will attempt a Scappoose Minors & Majors Fall Ball baseball league.  Due to the ever changing dynamics around COVID-19, our plan is to focus on the local area, keeping games primarily against Scappoose teams (we will also attempt to schedule some games with St. Helens, still TBD).

We want to get the kids on the field to work on mechanics and to have some fun in a safe and controlled environment.  We also wish to limit upfront costs for everyone, as things could change quickly, requiring a modified season, etc.  

Here are some basics:

  • No upfront cost.  Rather, we will charge on a per game basis.  With the goal to minimize costs as much as possible, but please plan on ~$5 per game (we will confirm once the season is formally kicked off – we’re hoping to reduce this further)
  • Schedule:  1-2 practices during the week (starting the first week of September), 1-2 games on the weekends (starting September 12th)
  • Please sign your child up (https://forms.gle/MoJnFXRgtcLuWLnWA) for the division they plan to play next spring (Minors & Majors baseball only, no Farm Ball or Tee Ball).  If this past spring was going to be their last year in majors, they can still play this fall season.  Signups end Sunday Aug 30.  
  • There will be no jerseys.  If your child did not get a hat last spring, please let us know.  We have extra hats and can make separate arrangements
  • No sharing of equipment will be allowed, which means everyone will need their own helmets, bats, gloves and water bottles.  Catchers gear will be challenging…we will start by requiring kids to have their own catchers gear if they want to catch
  • Umps will be coaches and/or volunteers
  • There will be no tryouts.  Our goal is to even the teams as much as possible so we can have some fun/competitive games.  Kids will move up/down a level if necessary if they are on the age bubble and their safety or the safety of others is a concern.
  • Flexibility and patience will be required by the players, parents and coaches in order for this to work successfully.  Again, our goal is to get the kids on the field, working on mechanics and re-discovering the joy of baseball in a fun/safe environment

To make this a safe environment, we need everyone’s support.  We understand that everyone has different opinions on masks, social distancing, etc., but to play in Scappoose Fall Ball, the league’s requirements must be followed.  If you or your child do not feel comfortable supporting these requirements, we kindly ask that you not participate.

Requirements:

  • COVID-19 Waiver Form, each player/parent must sign
  • Social distancing will be enforced, no exceptions
    • Masks are required when not on the field for players and coaches.
    • Players must wear masks coming and going to the fields once in the park.
    • Spectators must wear masks and practice 6’ social distancing rules.
  • If anyone is showing any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not jeopardize others, stay home and quarantine
  • If your child has any noticeable symptoms, they will be asked to leave immediately.  Please don’t put the coaches in a position to make this call.  We understand we’ll be in normal cold season and it’s hard to decipher, but we will error on the side of caution.

Thank you for your time, we hope to see you on the field this fall, and take care,
