NASSAU COUNTY PARKS AND LOCUST AVE -- IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
September 10, 2016
If you are playing games at any of the Nassau County Parks, Wantagh, Eisenhower, Cantiague and Bay, there is a $10 parking fee imposed by Nassau County for all non-residents. This has nothing to do with Boys of Summer. This is has been in effect for the past two years at all of these venues during tournaments and league play so please be advised that there is a fee for all non-residents. Thank you for your cooperation.
Additionally, all baseball games played this fall at Locust Avenue in Bohemia require that all players and parents park in the Bosti parking area. There is congestion down at the complex with football also being played so please park in the Bosti lot to alleviate the parking issue. From Sunrise Highway, take Locust Avenue 1/4 mile to first stop sign and make a left onto Bourne Avenue. You can park along street or make a right into Bosti Elementary School lot on right. There are two gates to enter the field one in front and one in the back.
COACHES HELMETS AND PROPER ATTIRE
July 1, 2016 – 09:00 AM
ATTENTION ALL MANAGERS AND COACHES
We would like to reiterate what has been said at every league meeting in 2016. Coaches must wear coaching helmets for safety reasons. You will not be permitted to coach on the bases if you do not wear a coaching helmet. Umpires have done a good job enforcing this rule all season but have had some push-back from some of you and some resistance which has caused poor relations at some fields. This should not be an issue -- you cannot coach without a helmet. Thank you for your cooperation.
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.
Cleat Restrictions for Fields Listed Below
Please take care of our facilities.
Metal Cleats are NOT PERMITTED (Molded and Turfs allowed) at the following venues:
