THE PROGRAM 

The Tournament Division is managed by Olathe Youth Baseball, Inc. (OYBI). This league for players and teams who wish to participate in League play, while at the same time have weekend opportunities for tournament play. The OYBI Tournament Division is for teams that are  considered A & AA with USSSA baseball (only). Teams will be scheduled to play a 14 game schedule. Teams will play 4 of the 14 games during the first weekend in June. Teams will be formed by grades. Divisions will be offered for players who are 3rd Grade through 8th grade. There will be no geographical boundary restrictions on the team formation process. Players will only need to meet either age or grade requirements to participate.  Coaches must turn in a roster listing the players who are on their teams to the OYBI. The deadline for turning in team rosters is February 1, 2019. (Deadline)

RULES & REGULATIONS 

OYBI will use Official baseball rules / USSSA rules with a few OYBI exceptions.  These rules and exceptions will be detailed in the OYBI rulebook.  Grades 4 through 8 will play full baseball rules with exceptions for pitching limitations and mercy rules / run spreads.  OYBI believes in providing a learning environment so players can develop the hitting, pitching and fielding skills that will benefit them in the future. Therefore, along with pitching limitations and mercy rules, OYBI’s 3rd Grade Tournament Division will have rule exceptions for lead-offs, dropped 3rd strike, and base running.
