7th & 8th Grade Softball Players!

posted May 26, 2020, 6:25 AM by Michael Kahny


 First practice for all 7th and 8th grade softball players will be 

Monday June 1 from 5:30-7:30 at the stadium park softball diamond

Attention 5th & 6th grade players and parents:

posted Feb 25, 2020, 3:03 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 25, 2020, 3:04 PM ]

In the interest of player development and staying current with other leagues in our area, the Tri-County baseball coaches voted to adjust our playing dimensions from the current dimensions of 46ft mound 60ft base paths, to 50ft mound 70ft base paths. We have seen multiple leagues adopt these dimensions and we have chosen to keep up rather than see our players fall behind.

Some of the drivers for this change:

Safety of our pitchers; By moving the pitcher back 4 feet further from the plate, this gives the pitcher more time to react to a line drive shot right back towards him.

Our current junior high players will be playing games this year on field dimensions of 54/80 and even some games at 60/90; We would like to ease this transition and help them be better prepared to play on a larger field. 

More opportunities for our fielders to field balls and make a play with good mechanics; Rather than rushing a throw across the diamond with poor throwing technique in an effort to beat the runner.

These changes were adopted with a lot of thought and discussion. But most importantly, in the best interest of our children participating in our league. The Delphos City Parks Department is currently planning to adjust our diamonds to accommodate these dimensions. 

These playing dimensions will only apply to City League boys (current 5th & 6th grade). Our minors and coach pitch (current 1st thru 4th), will continue to play at 46/60. 

If you have any questions about this change or anything else, please message us on Facebook or speak with one of our officers.

Exciting changes for the 2020 season!

posted Feb 20, 2020, 10:44 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 20, 2020, 10:44 AM ]

To help restore competitive balance and better develop our young players, our minor league will be making some positive changes beginning with the 2020 season. Beginning this season any current 3rd grader or 1st time player from grades 3rd and 4th will be assigned to a minor league team based on a skills evaluation. This evaluation will take the place of the traditional "tryout". As they move to their 5th grade season they will be drafted into one of the 4 city teams. At that point depending on the 5th or 6th graders ability he will either play for one of the city teams or be placed on to a balanced minor league team and become an alternate for his city team. The officers have spent upwards of 8hrs discussing these changes; we have also met with our board and our membership to discuss these changes and get their invaluable input. 

Our hope is to see better more balanced gameplay in our minor league and better developed players as they move through our programs and into high school. 

Along with these changes we are moving to grade eligibility rather than age. Current pre-k and k will play rookie league, current 1st and 2nd graders will play coach pitch, current 3rd and 4th graders will play minor league, and finally, current 5th and 6th graders will play city league or minor. 

If you're willing, please share this post with your family and friends to help us get the word out.

Watch for signup information coming home from school with your child this week. Online signups are set to begin this Saturday the 22nd of February 2020. 

As always, please message us with any questions you may have and we will get back to you promptly.
