We had sent out a notice saying we would be opening Fall Ball Registration before the end of July. At this moment, there are no fall baseball leagues started yet. As you know, Washington County is still in Phase 1, and therefore, we are still unable to get onto the baseball fields. Due to this, we are going to wait to open fall ball registration until we have a clearer idea as to when Washington County is able to move to Phase 2. The board is continuing to monitor the situation and will be sending out more communications as we are able. As of today, no league has reached out to Liberty Youth Baseball about holding a Fall Baseball season due to the current pandemic.
In the meantime, we also wanted to send out a note about the upcoming board vote. Liberty Youth Baseball is a 501©3 and we need volunteers to keep our program up and running. Due to this, we are in desperate need of new board members. In our Fall elections, we need to fill MANY open positions. Many of the positions are currently filled by parents whose player is now in high school or one year away. As of now, we know that the following positions are going to be vacant:
We want to stress that filling these positions are very important to be able to keep Liberty Baseball up and running. Please reach out to our current president, Craig Sheldon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining our board. We will be holding elections in late September or early October.
Finally, effective September 1, 2020, the Liberty Youth Baseball President, Craig Sheldon, will be stepping down from his role. Craig’s son is moving onto high school and will be playing baseball for Liberty High School. We are very thankful for the 5+ years that Craig has been a part of the Liberty board. Craig has been a great leader of our board as well as a wonderful mentor to the kids he has coached over the years. He will continue to assist in any way he can. The board will be electing an interim president to fulfill the last year of the term of the president.
There are new Catcher Gear and batting helmet requirements for all JBO (3rd - 8th grade) players. All catchers must wear NOCSAE standard catcher's head and face protection with full ear and throat protection, body/chest protector that meets the NOCSAE standard (effective Jan 1, 2021), protector cup and baseball protective shin guards during warm-ups and during games in all leagues. Catchers will follow all high school rules for equipment.
Liberty Youth Baseball (LYB) is the youth baseball program in Hillsboro, Oregon. We offer recreational and competitive spring leagues for kids ages 5 through 14, as well as a fall league. We are a volunteer-based organization, and a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.
