LI Boys of Summer - Perfect Game Collegiate League Link


ATTENTION MANAGERS - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO READ!

July 7, 2020

 

We had a fabulous opening with very few issues and it was great to be back on the fields.

But we cannot have any issues. It has come to our attention that the one issue we're experiencing is that many teams are not abiding by the government guidelines to help prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 by having too many players sitting in the dugout. We have explained in detail the importance of social distancing, dugout awareness and fan compliance.

At most sites you can have five players in the dugout - but each site could be different and the coordinator will set forth the rules. We recommend players bring lawn chairs to games where no seating is available outside the dugout. Fans are not allowed inside first base and third base and toward the dugout. And they're not allowed behind the backstop. There are no exceptions.

Teams will not share baseballs and umpires will not handle baseballs.

Teams cannot meet after the game and congregate on the field. If the coaches want to discuss the game, they need to leave the field area and go to a staging area and keep the players socially distant during the convo.

When a coach makes a trip to the mound he needs to stay six feet from the pitcher and it is preferred he wear a mask when speaking with the pitcher. Teams cannot come to the mound as a group for a defensive huddle.

There are no handshakes after the game.

Masks are recommended not required. Coaches are recommended to wear a mask or remain socially distant while inside the dugout and when speaking with players.  

We have the rules on the front page of the website. We are sending another email blast to all of our managers explaining their role in this very important time. We explained this in the Zoom meeting and some of you chose to ignore how serious these issues are, not only for your players, yourself and your fans but to the people at home.

We understand it's a different world and change can be difficult for some. There is no tolerance for breaking any of these rules. We will not allow a few people ruin it for all of you.

We repeatedly had coordinators reminding coaches to limit the amount of players in the dugouts. Most complied. Some did not. We had parents sit behind the backstops at some venues and that is in violation of the distancing rules. We had parents conveniently walk down behind the dugouts and hang out because they can't follow the rules.

Let us be clear most parents were fantastic and totally understand why these rules were implemented. Our first day on the field and everyone seemed happy to be back and enjoyed watching their sons play baseball - we need it.

Baseball Heaven, PAL and Brentwood State Park said you can bring umbrellas and tents for the outfield viewing to get some shade.

We cannot reiterate that it is your responsibility to practice these safety rules to enable us to play all summer.

Starting Tuesday, July 7, our umpires have been instructed to give a warning for the first violation of any of these rules. A second offense will be an automatic EJECTION OF THE COACH. The third violation is a forfeit and the game will end - with a zero tolerance - and that team will be on final warning. A report will be filed to our office and the umpires association. Your team will be on notice that any further incidents will be the termination of the season - and that is the last thing that we want to be forced to do.

Coaches are responsible to control the fans and see that they are keeping everyone safe by following the simple guidelines. Umpires will enforce the rules - don't be the team that we are forced to make an example of - follow the rules.

We want to enjoy the great game of baseball! Be vigilant at the games as we climb back toward normalcy. 

 

Thank you - the BOS boys!

TIME LIMITS REVISED FOR 2020

 

   Due to the outpouring of concern about the imposed time limits and the break in between games where umpires need to get changed we are revising our time limit rules. Please carry this note to your games so there are no issues with the new rules.

   There will be a 1:50 time limit on all Boys of Summer games with following games scheduled and no new inning may begin after 1:50.

   Also, and most importantly, the time limit does not start until the first warm up pitch is thrown, and then the umpire must notify both teams of the start time.

   Regular season games in the summer and fall that go four full innings are now official. We've had a few guys working the clock to avoid a loss - please always play with integrity.

    There are NO TIME LIMITS for playoff games.

 

 


BASES, HELMETS, AND PROPER ATTIRE

 

ATTENTION ALL MANAGERS AND COACHES

BASES

All teams must have a set of bases for each game. Some fields accommodate us with bases but others do not so please remember to bring them to all fields. Town of Brookhaven fields are an example of fields that do not supply bases but there are others as well and teams must have a their own set of bases.

COACHING HELMETS

See Rule 18 under Boys of Summer rules.

COACHING ATTIRE

Another hot topic at the midway point of our season is the coaches attire. We agreed at the March meeting that all coaches must be properly dressed for games. A coaches shirt, team jersey or pullover is acceptable. Coaches shorts or baseball pants are also acceptable. NO denim or cutoff shorts, slacks, work pants, capris, skirts, work boots or dress shoes can be worn while coaching the bases. This also should never be an issue to be dealt with at the field.
